Vietnam is a tropical country in Southeast Asia, its history can be traced back over 4,000 years. The country is blessed with proud traditions and arresting landscapes ranging from mountains to river deltas, dense forests and vast tracts of green rice paddy fields. Vietnamese culture is diverse, while ancient temples represent distinctly Chinese influences in the north and Hindu origins in the south, the tree-lined boulevards and European-style buildings gracing its cities evoke the bygone era of the colonial Indochina.
The turbulence of the country’s recent history has kept it off the tourist map for decades, but the recent generation has rediscovered its charms. Making use of their natural glamour and bounteous coast, Vietnam has grown to become a fascinating travel destination. As the country continues to develop its infrastructure, luxury travel in the region is becoming an even greater pleasure.
Seaplane service over the breathtaking Halong Bay provides exceptional views of UNESCO World Heritage Site that was previously unachievable, luxury beachfront resorts along the coast offer perfect vacation breaks, and a variety of cruise options in Mekong Delta open travelers’ eyes to a distinct way of life on the river.
