Vietnam Trips

Why Vietnam?

Ancient architecture, stirring landscapes and modern cities make Vietnam a destination of compelling beauty.

Vietnam: a nation where the foreign influences of China and France have become familiar, in a distinctly Southeast Asian fashion. Whether you perceive it in the architecture of the cities, or taste it in a bite of banh mi, that sense of cultural richness is always there. Its cuisine, of course is world renowned: steaming bowls of pho noodles, fresh Vietnamese rolls, spicy salads – it’s almost worth visiting Vietnam for its cuisine alone.

Its landscapes offer just as much to savour. From the limestone karsts of Halong Bay to the serene shores of the South China Sea, Vietnam brims with natural vitality. Terraced rice paddies, white-sand beaches, rugged mountains and tropical rivers; everywhere you turn in Vietnam, there’s a scene of beauty to be observed.

And its cities? There’s the bustling metropolis of Ho Chi Minh, the enchanting Old Quarter of Hanoi, the lovely lanterns of Hoi An, to name but a few. All cities which we visit on our bestselling Vietnam adventures.
