Vietnam is more like Thailand, Vietnamese are open, welcoming, and generous. The food is amazing, unique, colorful, and delicious. The weather is warm, the sun shines bright, and normally even when it rains, it clears up quickly.
There are beaches, island paradises, rivers, vibrant cities, sleepy villages, rainforests, rice paddies, mountain ranges, and more to explore. The cities big and small, are expanding quickly into the sky. You can find every modern convenience and some of South East Asia’s best shopping opportunities. You can still find parts of the country that hardly appear to have changed in the last 100 years. Transportation can a little exciting and not for the faint of heart, but it is improving. Tourism remains very affordable for most, with great hotels, tours, and food that can be found for very reasonable prices.
Go to Vietnam NOW, it’s changing fast, but right now it’s a great mix of old and new, traditional and modern. They have a young outgoing population, who are waiting to help make your time here in Vietnam now, for something special and to be remembered.
