Diverse, enriching, and absolutely stunning, Vietnam offers delights around every corner. Split into 3 regions - North, Central, and South - Vietnam delights travelers of all styles, from those looking for a scenic honeymoon with beachside retreats and cruises, to history buffs hoping to explore ancient temples and pagodas, to the adventure seeker who wishes to trek through friendly villages.

In the north you'll discover the capital of Hanoi, a blend of modern and historical architecture, culture, and cuisine, as well as the picturesque rice terraces of Sapa and the serene karst islands of Halong Bay.

Traveling by train, plane or automobile, you'll reach one of the cultural and historical centers of the country, Hoi An, the Ancient City, as well as Hue, the former Imperical City of the Nguyen Dynasty and capital of ...Vietnam. Each are a must see on a Vietnam tour, offering a chance to learn about local crafts, cuisines, and culture.

Further down the coast, you'll encounter the resort city of Nha Trang, perfect for a seaside retreat on a longer trip to Vietnam, as well as the inland city of Da Lat, which offers a variety of adventure activities, from canyoning to river rafting to mountain biking.

Finally, you'll arrive at the major southern city of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, one of the more metropolitan and modern cities in Vietnam. Here you'll discover French architecture as evident in the Notre-Dame Basilica, learn about the devastating history of the Vietnam War at the War Remnants Museum, and enjoy the skyline of the modern half of the city. From here you can also enjoy a day trip or cruise to the Mekong Delta.
