Travel content

A trip to Vietnam promises the experience of a lifetime. From the wide shady boulevards to the bustling markets of Saigon, from the islands and the villages dotting the Mekong Delta to the serene beaches of the south, Vietnam has something for everyone. You'll start your journey in energetic Saigon, where grand halls in the French colonial style share the streets with Vietnamese and Chinese pagodas. Markets selling the everyday, the exotic, and the downright bizarre will offer you a look into the lives of Saigon's residents. Then step out of the big city and into the countryside with a cruise in the Mekong Delta. The boat ride takes you past villages where little has changed over the years and through beautiful natural scenery.
