OVERVIEW

Vietnam is a South East Asian country, bordered by China, Laos and Cambodia, and famed for its breath-taking natural beauty, its mouth-watering cuisine and long turbulent history. Despite having been engulfed by war, rebellion and strife periodically over the course of many centuries, the country remains one of the region’s most compelling destinations and draws visitors from far and wide to experience the richness of its culture and the wonder of its landscapes. A vibrant melting pot, displaying Chinese and French influences in its food and architecture, Vietnam bewitches and beguiles at every turn and is the ideal destination for an exotic honeymoon.

To experience the country’s spectacular scenery in its full glory head to places such as Halong Bay, with its 2000+ islands and islets jutting out of the glimmering Gulf of Tonkin, and take a scenic boat cruise or explore the local caves. Alternatively you can delve into the dramatic splendour of Cat Tien National Park, where you can bird-watch, hike and go mountain-biking through the lush rain forest, or you can opt to spend your honeymoon by the beach at Nha Trang or Mui Ne.

To experience Vietnamese history and culture, head to the cities, such as Ho Chi Minh, a dizzying blend of East and West with its exquisite Chinese pagodas, bustling markets and war monuments and museums. Hanoi is also well worth a visit, boasting elegant boulevards, more historic pagodas and bustling streets full of atmosphere and excitement.  Visit the stunning Ngoc Son Temple, stroll around the legendary Ho Hoan Kiem lake and sample delicious street food in the atmospheric Old Quarter.
