welcome to vietnam
Vietnam has an overwhelming beauty and is rich in natural sceneries and beauties such as deltas like the Red River Delta and Mekong Delta, as well as other beauties including green rice-paddy fields, divine beaches, soaring mountains, dense & misty forests and many more. Vietnam is in the south east of the Indochina Peninsula. The border countries are China on the north, Laos on the northwest, and Cambodia on the southwest. Located to the east is the South China Sea.
Vietnam has a very rich culture, amazing historical monuments, eye catching natural scenery, beaches, mountains, rivers and forests making for ideal eco Vietnam holidays.
Hanoi,one of the most beautiful of the colonial Indochinese cities, is often the start or end point of a trip to Vietnam, and what a great welcome or farewell it is. Oozing with charm, Hanoi has gone through wholesale changes since Vietnam
swung open its doors to tourism, but it remains true to its essential personality and is an amazing city to experience.
Long Bien bridge
Though considerably quieter than big sister Saigon, Hanoi still retains a vibrant atmosphere. From the early hours until late at night, the fig-tree shaded streets swarm with careening motorbikes, often with four, five or even six people aboard. A cyclo is available on most street corners, but unless you are making a particularly long trip, the best way to explore Hanoi is by foot
Da Nang holidays
According to one tourism industry local, Da Nang has been asleep for 15 years. And while the city's cyclos still move along the leafy avenues at a sleepwalker's pace, there is definitely some stirring going on. Glossy new apartment complexes and shopping malls line the riverfront, where the scent of new paint seems to mingle with the salty harbour air. Some of the city's more important avenues have been widened, while buildings and hotels are continually being torn down and rebuilt -- don't be surprised if you show up somewhere to check out a room, and find the lobby covered in scaffolding.
Ho chi minh Holidays
Ho Chi Minh City or Saigon, situated in the southern part of Vietnam, is still called Saigon by most of the natives. This modern city used to be considered as the Pearl of the Orient by the French.
The wide Saigon River, which takes a huge turn from the east of Saigon, links the city with the sea. Unlike Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, Saigon -Ho Chi Minh City may lack charm and elegance, but the city with its essential French colonial character has enough to draw your attention. The city\'s colonial villas, wide avenues and a lively cafe society remind you the days of French dominance.
Today Ho Chi Minh City has a cosmopolitan and energetic atmosphere, and having actively welcomed the new capitalist principle, the business-minded spirit of the people is much in evidence. Although relatively modern, it has still managed to hold onto its Asian character, and fine restaurants, smart hotels and chic bars line the sidewalks crammed with noodle stands, markets and shoeshine boys. The buzzing of motorbikes and scooters merges with the cries of street vendors and the urgent business of stall owners, selling barbecued dog and tropical fruits.

Halong bay cruise
Situated in northern Vietnam near the Chinese border, 170km northeast from Hanoi, Halong Bay
is one of the worldÃÔ natural wonder.
The Bay is dotted with 1,600 limestone islands and islets and covers an area of over 1,500 sqkm. This extraordinary area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.
Majestic and mysterious, inspiring and imperious: words alone cannot do justice to the natural wonder that is Halong Bay
The islands there represent the most ancient images of a geographical site having a tectonic age of from 250 million to 280 million years. They are the result of many times of rising and lowering processes of the continent to form a karst. The process of nearly full erosion and weathering of the karst created the unique Hạ Long Bay in the world. In a not very large area, thousands of islands with different forms look like glittering emeralds attached to the blue scarf of a virgin.
