Why Visit Vietnam?
Vietnam is one of Asia's most ecologically and culturally diverse countries. The beautiful scenery ranges from the cool mountains of the northwest, with cascading rice terraces in Sapa, through the narrow central coastal plains, home to some first-class beaches, especially around Da Nang and Nha Trang, to the Delta region of the Mekong River in the south.
The country offers great opportunities to trek in scenic valleys and to visit ethnic minority markets, with gatherings of brightly-dressed flowery Hmong people. Or you can sit in the roadside cafes of Hoi An's ancient town, after visiting its historic buildings, its decorated Chinese community halls, or its rich variety of boutique shops.
Boarding a wooden sampan, and passing through narrow canals surrounded by dense plants, you will be amazed by life on the Mekong River, observing its floating markets and tasting the fresh fruit from nearby orchards.
