Cuddled up beside Laos and Cambodia, lining the South China Sea is Vietnam, a southeast Asian country well known for its bustling cities, cultured cuisine and iconic bicycles. With an estimated 90.5 million inhabitants and almost 3,500km of coastline, this slimline country boasts sensational beaches, dynamic landscapes and compelling history to entertain the most avid of travelers.

Imagine a scene of bustling street food and rich culture all tied up with centuries-old architecture, and you’re likely thinking of the country’s capital, Hanoi, which lies in the northern highlands. Pass through the bustling streets to the soundtrack of scooters as you wander through the original streets of the Old Quarter to enjoy charming colonial architecture, beautiful bakeries, tempting boutique shops and galleries.

What is Vietnam known for?

Must-see landmarks

If you venture south, be sure to take in the sights and smells of Ho Chi Minh. This high-energy city will leave you buzzing after soaking up the temples and designer malls on offer, so relax with a cup of traditional Vietnamese coffee and immerse yourself in its street-side café culture. Move north and visit Hoi Ann, swelling with history and architecture, or Hue, a picturesque city steeped in charm, sitting comfortably on the Perfume River.

Culture

Although traditional Vietnmese music differs with the latitude, don’t go home before treating your ears to a few tunes, whether it’s at the theater or while you enjoy a bowl of bánh cuốn on the sidewalk – street food in Vietnam is without a doubt the home to fantastic flavor.
