Vietnam

The patriotic Vietnamese are extremely proud of their sovereignty, graciously welcoming visitors to see what they have endured in order to achieve it. Ancient traditions coexist with modern ideas as the spirited Vietnamese embrace the 21st  Century. Chinese influences are clear in Confucian temples and lively markets. French colonists live on through neoclassical architecture and the fresh baguettes which are sold on every street corner.

A tumultuous history comes to life in the Imperial Citadel of Hue, the glorious home of the powerful Nguyen dynasty until overthrown in 1945. Ornate hallways, libraries and theatres now bear the scars of the Vietnam War which followed.   A Vietnam holiday will offer you the chance to understand and explore the astonishing lives of guerrilla fighters with a tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels from Saigon and marvel at the imposing mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi.

Cruise through dramatic limestone karsts in Halong Bay and the bustling markets of the Mekong Delta on a Vietnamese holiday. Scenery stretches from the frosty Tonkinese Alps to palm-lined beaches, via blankets of emerald-green rice paddies.

Breakfast with the locals in Hanoi over a bowl of Pho (noodle soup) and crouch down for coffee in one of the impromptu street cafes. Sample the modern gastronomic delights of Saigon before rooftop cocktails on your luxuriant Vietnam holiday.

Politics provide a fascinating paradox. Whilst officially communist, few nations can match the Vietnamese appetite for getting ahead. Bentleys pick their way through the sea of motorbikes as success and failure are governed by mystical superstition. If you love to shop then be sure to leave room in your suitcase!
