Vietnam travel guide

While most Southeast Asian countries have at least one booming metropolis, none seem to bustle nearly throughout like Vietnam does. While busy locals zoom about on motorbikes, visitors fill their Vietnam vacations with a mix of cultural sightseeing and exploring the landscape. Big cities and towns boast colonial architecture, open-air markets, outstanding spa complexes, and modern restaurants. The country also features over 3,200 km (2,000 mi) of coastline dotted with sandy bays that attract scuba divers and kitesurfers. Away from busy urban centers, a tour of Vietnam reveals a rural landscape of lush rice paddies, jagged mountain peaks, and timeless villages unspoiled by the outside world.

Interlaced with rivers and canals feeding rice-growing plains and lush wetlands, the Mekong Delta impresses with its bustling floating metropolis. Tours of the Mekong Delta revolve around boat trips to floating markets and even whole towns on stilts, and trips to tranquil inland villages with slow, traditional lifestyles. As the rice bowl of Vietnam, the Mekong Delta offers foodies plenty to sink their teeth into: tours of rice paddies and orchards, fresh produce from floating stands, and delicious freshwater fish dishes. Other possibilities for a Mekong Delta itinerary include temples with ornate pagodas, wartime bunkers, and mangrove forests sheltering rare waterfowl and migratory birds.
