Vietnam is one of the fastest-growing destinations in Southeast Asia. Due to the long, thin geographical characteristics of the north and south, the differences between the northern and southern regions of Vietnam are evident. From the northern capital city of Hanoi, where European architecture stands out, to Da Nang, a well-known resort area in central Vietnam, to Ho Chi Minh, the largest commercial city in the south of the country – each region is filled with exciting opportunities for exploration. The northern region of Sapa is renowned for hiking, while the majestic island chain of Ha Long Bay is one of the world’s finest spots for scuba divers and photographers. If you’re looking for a laid-back trip with excellent beaches, the southern island of Phu Quoc is highly recommended.  

While in Vietnam, don't miss the pleasure of eating the local cuisine, which continues to grow in popularity all around the world. Enjoy Vietnamese foods that catch the taste of the world at a very reasonable price, including rice noodle soup (pho), crispy fried dumplings (cha gio), and banh mi sandwiches made with fresh baguettes.
