Vietnam is the Southeast Asian country of “timeless charm” and one view of its knock-out French-Colonial-meets-Asian-tradition facades and you’ll see it’s a well deserved moniker. There’s so much left to discover in this gracious country. With a diverse array of World Heritage Sites peppered throughout the country and distinct, regional tribes to intrigue the experienced world-traveler, Vietnam has multiple faces and layers of culture.
- Da Nang
- Ha Long Bay
- Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon)
- Hoi An
The countryside holds secrets and surprises; ancient temple ruins, majestic pagodas, and hidden natural wonders. The country draws its misty beauty from its mighty rivers, the Red River and the Mekong, whose waters nourish transport and trade throughout the country. The countryside is an emerald patchwork of rice paddies, towering lush mountains, dense forests, and hidden tropical beaches.
Activities to explore outdoors abound: hiking, canoeing, rafting, biking, and river cruises are just a start on the options available. Food is delightful in Vietnam. The influence of French cuisine paired with the country’s abundance of fresh vegetables and distinctive flavors and spices has given way to an upscale culinary experience. The Vietnamese are people with a strong spirit and resilient character
who offer hospitality and friendship to visitors. From new world-class hotels and resorts to charming and venerable French colonial grand hotels, there are a wide range of choices available and ample options for exciting activities and cultural discovery. Event planners looking for an emerging location with mystery and charm will find it in Vietnam.
