Vietnam holidays give you the opportunity of mixing the old with the new. The hotels are excellent with modern standards while there are many places worth visiting to see the old monuments and ways of life.
Vietnam stretches the length of the Indochinese Peninsula, shaped like an elongated “S”. China lies to the north, Laos and Cambodia to the west, and the South China Sea to the East.
Vietnam can be thought of as comprising three unique regions: North, Central, and South.
The North is known for its alpine peaks, the Red River Delta, the magnificent Halong Bay, and cultural and historic Hanoi. Central Vietnam is also home to many ethnic minorities, is characterized by high temperate plateaus rich in volcanic soil and by spectacular beaches, dunes, and lagoons. It is also the location of the ancient imperial city of Hue. In the South, visitors encounter modern life in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) and the delta of the Mekong River.
Most visitors to Vietnam are overwhelmed by the beauty of the country’s natural setting: the Red River Delta in the north, the Mekong Delta in the south and almost the entire coastal strip are a patchwork of brilliant green rice paddies tended by women in traditional conical hats.
There are some stunning beaches along the coast, while inland there are magnificent temples and ancient buildings, definitely worth a visit. Vietnam also offers an opportunity to see a country of traditional charm and rare beauty, it truly is an outstanding travel destination not to be missed.
Vietnam is a country filled with captivating natural beauty and tranquil village life. The islands and beaches are among the finest in all of Southeast Asia, and the cuisine is possibly the most delicious you will ever taste.
