Vietnam entices all five senses. The alluring wisps of incense at Buddhist temples, the distinctive cuisine with its fresh herbs and spices (considered one of the healthiest cuisines worldwide), the bustling sounds of daily markets and the varied textures of Hoi An’s colorful fabrics make Vietnam a captivating destination. Yet the sights of Vietnam are the most memorable: the regal tombs of Imperial emperors in Hue, striking limestone karsts rising out of Halong Bay, colorful fishing villages, rolling countryside hills patterned with terraced rice fields and the fusion of East-meets-West where Chinese temples sit alongside French colonial villas.
“Vietnam is many destinations wound into one country! From North to South, the climate, scenery, history, religion, customs and food varies unbelievably.”—Dianna Upton, Consultant
