Vietnam

The country is now easier than ever to access, with so much change happening since the end of the Vietnam War 40 years ago. This country has a lot to offer the traveller, with gorgeous stretches of landscape in between the cities and beaches, and one way to take it in is to take a train ride on the Reunification express from Hanoi in the north to Ho Chi Minh City in the south. The colonial architecture from the time of French rule can still be seen in the cities, and it can be nice to rent a condominium to explore the markets, and temples. Vietnam is also well known for it’s delicious and fresh food, including some of the best and cheapest seafood in the world.

Beaches, Lakes, Rivers

The famous limestone outcropping islands of Halong Bay  are a memorable sight, with the traditional junks adding a flash of colour to the turquoise water, ready to take visitors on a boat trip. Serenity can be found at Lak Lake, where you can explore in a dugout canoe, or ride on a elephant nearby. In the far north the Red River Delta is intertwined with the countryside, and the Mekong Delta shows off the country’s agricultural region. Beach lovers can rent a holiday house at the unspoilt beach of Phu Quoc and visit other unspoilt islands for snorkelling. Nha Trang is also a popular snorkelling destination.
