The word `Vietnam’ means `the Viet people in the south’- a fitting term for the country that occupies the southern part of Eastern Asia. Vietnam remained for many years a country associated with bloodshed and strife- the Vietnam War is still etched in many minds, especially American and Vietnamese. The aftermath of the war is still evident in the poverty and underdevelopment; in the number of amputees and in the faces of the children of mixed American -Vietnamese parentage. There are beautiful mountains, lovely quiet beaches, a rich cultural heritage, and the wonderful old-world charm of colonial cities like Hanoi. This is the country with a wonderful cuisine; this is the country that produces beautiful handicrafts including some of the best embroidery and lacquer ware in South Asia. Vietnam is well worth a visit- it may not be the hottest tourist destination in South East Asia, but it has a uniqueness that makes it a must-see for anyone who’s interested in the Orient.
Take in new sights, sounds, and flavours. Enjoy experiences that are truly memorable.
Let’s explore, relax, and play. Live fully in Vietnam.
Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is a city still retains a wonderfully captivating old-world charm despite its ongoing transition into a modern metropolis. Many different races occupied Hanoi and they all added to its cosmopolitan personality. The French, in particular, left their characteristic imprint in lovely tree-lined boulevards and colonial-style buildings of the French Quarter. Present day Hanoi is awash with construction sites as the city prepares to rewrite its past and pens in its future. That isn’t all there is to Hanoi- the city has its share of temples and pagodas, shrines, and museums. It’s a city of lakes and parks, of old streets and city squares, of bustling markets and old shops: a city made to be explored with surprises lurking around each and every street corner.
Ho Chi Minh
One of the new Asian boomtowns, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam. It lies in a picturesque area dominated by the estuary of the mighty Mekong. Once called Saigon, it is the ‘rice bowl of Vietnam’ as the surrounding green paddy fields make only too apparent. It is and has always been the commercial and economic centre of the country, with traders from across Asia and Europe finding their way to its thriving, bustling markets. It is more of a melting pot than any other city in the region - and you can see signs of it everywhere, in the French berets worn by men, in the aromatic coffee available at cafés, in the distinctly Chinese flavour of Cholon, (Chinatown) and in the cosmopolitan character of the city’s architecture with its fine buildings reflecting Japanese, Chinese, French and Dutch styles. It is perhaps Vietnam’s most important and most well-known city – a vibrant city you should definitely visit if you want to get a taste of Vietnam - as it was, as it is and as it promises to be.
Ha Long Bay:
For many, the seascape of Ha Long Bay is synonymous with Vietnam. Cruises sail emerald green waters among thousands of rugged islands and islets, stopping at spectacular caves through which visitors can wander, viewing impressive, centuries-old formations. Ha Long Bay's mystical beauty has made it a bucket list attraction within the country, but it's still possible to find secluded corners to call your own.
