Vietnam

Modern Vietnam is becoming one of Asia's most popular destinations. Visitors come for the beauty of the land, the energy of the cities, the graciousness of the people, the splendor of the art, the zest of the food and the caliber of the shopping. Vietnam has a rich past and a dynamic present and the two exist side by side throughout the country. Ho Chi Minh city is a major metropolis that celebrates contemporary life against a backdrop of colonial architecture and sets a dynamic pace for the whole country.

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is an elegant city with a long and diverse history and a timeless Old Quarter that was once a thriving commercial center-today you can still wander its ancient streets and find bolts of fine silk and silver and jade jewelry. Hue, Vietnam's capital from 1802 to 1945 under a succession of thirteen emperors of the Nguyen dynasty was a major center; UNESCO has labelled the city "a beautiful architectural poem". Danang, once a key trading post, is a living architectural museum showcasing Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, British and French influences. And Halong Bay is a natural wonderland, a World Heritage Site where thousands of limestone islets sit in a bay of breathtaking beauty. Vietnam truly offers visitors an opportunity to see a land of rare beauty and rich culture.
