Traveling to Vietnam is a tremendously enriching and complete experience. The country has it all: paradisiacal beaches, fascinating cities, fertile valleys and rice fields, hospitable and friendly people… this sum of qualities make it a fascinating destination and, therefore, it is more than advisable to travel to Vietnam and soak up its culture and traditions.
This region of green rice fields where dozens of ethnic groups coexist contrasts markedly with the chaotic metropolises, mainly Hanoi -the capital of Vietnam- and Ho Chi Ming or Saigon, whose frenetic activity can be seen for example in the fact that it holds the Guinness record for motorcycles per inhabitant. On a trip to Vietnam, contrasts are guaranteed.
Among the highlights when traveling to Vietnam is also the spectacular Halong Bay, with its more than 2,000 islets jutting out of the waters. The best way to explore this jewel of nature is to embark on a mini-cruise – on a typical Vietnamese boat – for one or several nights to tour the bay and enjoy its beautiful views.
