Vietnam is constantly surprising. The landscapes of vibrant green rice paddies, limestone sea cliffs and great rivers provide a backdrop to a culture that is as tenacious as it is fascinating.
Life in Vietnam is lived out in the streets, and in the great cities of Saigon and Hanoi we are able to feel part of this endless spectacle of daily life. But we also have time in places where the pace is slower, such as magnificently scenic Halong Bay. In and around Saigon we come across reminders of Vietnam’s most recent history whilst Hoi An preserves remnants of a rich heritage spanning the centuries.
