With hundreds of kilometres of gorgeous beaches, impressive colonial architecture and a tragic modern history which has sculpted the country’s modern psyche, Vietnam is a fascinating and engaging destination. The bustling southern city of Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is a rapidly modernising metropolis which houses informative museums and cosmopolitan nightlife. Its northern counterpoint Hanoi is the other cultural centre of the country and wears the impact of its French colonial origins on its sleeve. Elsewhere, the seaside cities of Ha Long and Da Nang possess outstanding golden beaches on which to relax, whilst you can sample distinctive Vietnamese dishes such as pho all over the country.
