Spectacular from North to South

Vietnam is filled with surreal landscapes, charming heritage towns and dynamic cities steeped in history. There's more to this country beyond its turbulent wartime history. Visit the megacities of Saigon and Hanoi, have a taste of delicious Vietnamese food, see the ancient heritage sites, French-colonial architecture, and experience the country's diverse natural landscapes. If that's not enough, Vietnam is also one of the cheapest places to travel in Southeast Asia.
