Vietnam is a busy country that offers excitement around every turn. Located on the east coast of the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia, it is home to over 90 million inhabitants. Vietnam has many pleasures to offer intrepid travellers, including excellent beaches, delicious food, a thriving nightlife, and hundreds of gorgeous temples and pagodas. As the country is still very much in development, you can enjoy excellent prices on high-end Vietnam resorts.
Vietnam enjoys several different climates. Travellers need to be most aware of two different monsoon seasons, which bring heavy rains to their respective areas. The southwest monsoon strikes South Vietnam from June to November, while the northeastern monsoon hits Central Vietnam between September and February.
Those looking to live it up in a big vibrant city should start their trip in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), the most populous city in Vietnam. Enjoy the French colonial architecture and stop by the famous Jade Emperor Pagoda. If you’re a history buff, the War Remnants Museum can’t be missed. Another great destination is Hanoi, the country’s capital. Here you can visit Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and the notorious Hoa Lo Prison, and then wander the city’s well-preserved Old Quarter. The capital is also home to over 600 temples and pagodas, each one a treasure in its own right.
Other places to see include the resort town of Phan Thiet; My Son, a city filled with ancient Hindu ruins; and Phong Nha-Ke Bang, one of the most beautiful and magical caves on the continent.
