About Vietnam

Vietnam is rich in heritage. Situated on the South China Sea, its history is represented in many popular cities.

The country’s iconic leader, Ho Chi Minh, is honored via an extensive marble mausoleum in the capital of Hanoi, while other famous landmarks can be seen in Ho Chi Minh city.

The best time to visit the country depends on which area you’re traveling to. But no matter when you travel to Vietnam, tourists are highly welcomed and you couldn’t ask for a more hospitable destination.

The erratic climate brings varying weather conditions throughout the year. April, May and June are unpredictable due to the changing spring to summer season. If you want to soak up some sun in Northern Vietnam, October is warm. However, very hot temperatures can occur during the year so remember to pack some light clothing.

What to do

Adventure awaits with many incredible excursions waiting for you to enjoy. The Hang Son Doong is the largest cave in the world, and you’ll find it in Phong Nha-ke Bang National Park.

You also need to set your sights on the stunning Japanese covered bridge in Hoi An – a beautiful 1590s construction that links the Japanese community to China.

If you’re searching for a little rest and relaxation, Lan Ha Bay is an exquisite choice. With white sands and crystal blue waters, this serene spot tends to be less popular than other beaches, so is ideal if you want some peace and quiet.

Vietnam is known for its fine cuisine. Grab a bite to eat at The Refinery Saigon, one of the most popular eateries in Ho Chi Minh. You’ll also find delicious food and local treats at Nha Hang Ngon as you’re greeted by romantic fairy lights, a lily pond and greenery.

Top Vietnam travel tips

There are three main airports in Vietnam, so it’s likely that you’ll arrive at either Noi Bai, Tan Son Nhat or Da Nang International Airports. Grabbing a taxi or bus to your hotel makes your journey much easier.

Whether you want to escape to a local beach, take photographs of the impressive scenery or see what nature has to offer, Vietnam boasts remarkable attractions that you’ll only find in this part of the world.
