                 Travel Vietnam Introduction
Vietnam is a country of contrasts. Its varied climate and landscape range from four seasons in
the mountainous North, to year-round tropical temperatures in the lush South. Travelers to
Vietnam great about unbelievably warm and friendly people, special 54 ethnic groups,
stunning landscape and countryside. All those characterizes has established its reputation as
a unique and genuine Southeast Asian experience.

And now, you will have an adequate possibility to travel Vietnam at various levels of comfort,
staying in anything from deluxe to budget accommodation, using various forms of
transportation and dining in fine Vietnamese and International restaurants or in more local
style eateries.

To leave the thrill of countless bikes, go gulf to the watering landscaping of green career fields
and sleepy villages inside the Mekong Delta. There’s adventure galore to be had on Phu Quoc
island and stunning white-colored-sand seashores to relax on. Again on the colonial at Mui Ne
Seashore, you’ll be confronted with an identical issue: action or inertia?

Hoi An may well weigh you along - but in a great way – you’re sure to get kilos of produced-to-
buy apparel in your bags. With the approximated 300 to 500 tailors doing work in this
gorgeous metropolis, this really is fashion nirvana.

To notice the cultural and religious heartbeat of Vietnam, produce a stay in the old imperial
capital of Hue. Home to palaces and pagodas, tombs and temples, and number with the
biennial martial arts styles event, the Festival of Hue, it’s the place to go for traditional, cultural
and culinary arts stimulation.

In Hanoi, the country’s interesting funds, rise early to view the town workout by Hoan Kiem
lake, then shell out your aspects directly to Uncle Ho with the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (a
really unique knowledge). Check if you can have some Cha Ca (grilled fish) in the Old
Quarter, or cool using draught beer at "bia hoi" (a very satisfying encounter).

Sooner or later you’ll be persuaded out of the town with the beautiful offerings of the country’s
northern provinces. Nothing can get you prepared for the beauty of Halong bay and its
particular 2000 limestone karsts, nor the experience of trekking to hill tribes villages arround
Sapa.

Vietnam has it all. Go expecting the unforeseen, be equipped for a journey as much as a trip,
and Vietnam will supply.

which extends over 220km, and is a popular destination for both Vietnamese and
foreign visitors.
Today, Cu Chi is a tranquil place of rice paddy fields with ducks and water buffalos
bathing in the rivers alongside the road. But this peaceful rural scene belies the terrible
destruction and defoliation caused by bombing and mines when Cu Chi was a "Free
Target Zone". Cu Chi still contains plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took
place here and all over this area you will find the remnants of war .

abandoned and swallowed by the jungle, looking very much the ways most of the
Angkor temples appeared when European explorers first stumbled upon them. Visit as
well Takeo, Thommanon and Chau Say Tevoda. Lunch at local restaurant After your
rest visit to the Preah Khan temple; built by the King Jayavarman VII, Preah Khan is,
like Ta Prohm, a place of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike

restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. Continue your visit
