A Cultural Paradise
Travelling through Vietnam will give you the opportunity to experience a country that is both a natural wonderland and a mosaic of complex cultures rich with history. The beaches in Vietnam are arguably among the best in the world and the majority of them lie casually along the coastline with nothing on them but soft white-sand. Wondrous sights like the limestone islands in Halong Bay that rise from the water like natural sculptures highlight a country that will amaze you with its beauty. But the good looks of Vietnam will not overshadow the experience of being immersed into a culture so starkly different from your own. Travelling from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) north through the entire country to Hanoi will allow you to see the full spectrum of life in Vietnam from hill tribes farming rice in the mountains to students practicing English in the city parks. On top of the beauty and culture, a generous exchange rate and ridiculously low prices also make Vietnam a great place to travel for those on a budget or a wicked place to go shopping for those who like getting all their clothes tailor-made!
