A fast-growing country, Vietnam has vibrant, bustling cities. Vast, lush countryside. Rugged mountains, river deltas, and rice paddy fields. And a seemingly endless coastline decorated with stunning beaches. The pulse of Vietnam’s enchanting, ancient culture beats steadily underneath its scenic surface. Layers of history are all around you and reveal glimpses of periods of French and Chinese occupation. The charming capital of Hanoi has aged well, with stunning French colonial architecture and lakes, parks, tree-lined boulevards, and more than 600 temples and pagodas. Halong Bay, a fan favorite and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a sight you won’t soon forget. In Vietnam you’ll find a vast—and delicious—culinary repertoire that includes the traditional Vietnamese noodle soup Pho and Banh Mi, the iconic sandwich and worldwide foodie favorite, which owes a nod to the country’s French colonial past. There are plenty of iconic images to take in: the classic conical Vietnamese hat. Speedy motorbikes. Colorful (and delicious!) markets. Stunning junk boats. But Vietnam is sure to leave its mark.
