Vietnam is a country on the move. The cities are bustling with modernism, change and growth. Yet one can still cruise through old Hanoi on a ‘cyclo’ pedalled by a local who is happy to share the city’s thousand year old history.
In the south, the Mekong Delta is filled with farmers in their conical hats ploughing fields with buffalo as in yesteryear.
Over 1,000 miles of white sandy beaches line the shores with world class luxury resorts all with a sense of place. Explore the mythical looking limestone coasts of Lan Ha and Halong Bay with insight into the lifestyle of locals living on floating homes. Many idyllic bays beg to be explored by private yacht.
The people are amazingly warm and the country is culturally rich with a complex history. Don’t miss the street food scene – it is alive and well with vendors hawking their incredibly delicious dishes everywhere you turn!
Vietnam is a land of diversity and mesmerising beauty.
