It includes the best places to visit, where to stay and which activities and sights to see plus useful travel tips that we’ve picked up during our four visits to Vietnam.
Your Vietnam adventure starts in Hanoi in the north. It’s frenzied, busy and the perfect introduction to Vietnamese culture.
Immerse yourself by wandering the streets and soaking up the atmosphere. It’s full on – the traffic, the chaotic pavements, the people, the infectious Hanoi vibe.
It’s a mystical landscape where thousands of limestone karsts burst breathtakingly skywards from the depths of the sparkling, emerald-green South China Seas.
Hue, and the Imperial City is the place to discover the ancient heart and soul of Vietnam. Explore ornate palaces, temples, gardens and courtyards.
Entering the ancient trading port is like stepping back in time and the photogenic town is somewhere I’d go back to in a heartbeat.
Head to Mui Ne on the coast for a couple of nights for more active pursuits like kite-surfing and the fabulous Mui Ne championship golf course.
Start your sightseeing in the city centre at Ho Chi Minh City Hall, a beautiful French colonial style building.
