Welcome to Vietnam
VIETNAM – A warm welcome awaits you in the country of Timeless Charm!
With a wealth of World Heritage Sites, diverse and unique regional cultures and culinary options…..Vietnam is a destination that really packs a punch when it comes to the WOW factor.
Lying beside Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia on the eastern part of the Indo-Chinese Peninsular, Vietnam is a gracious land that has much to offer. Be overwhelmed by the sublime beauty of the country’s natural setting from the Red River Delta in the north, to the Mekong Delta towards the south.
Admire the ancient Cham ruins and majestic pagodas, unwind in hideaway resorts, get a thrill out of mind-blowing adventure trips or just relax as you gaze at the verdant landscapes filled with a patchwork of brilliant green rice paddies. The scenery changes from divine beaches along the coast to soaring mountains inland with dense misty forests.
Be truly mesmerized by a nation who have emerged indomitably Vietnamese in spirit and character even after decades of hardship. Meet the people of Vietnam, and experience for yourselves the unbelievable friendship and hospitality that awaits you.
