Top Descriptions

It’s no wonder that Vietnam is so firmly entrenched on the Southeast-Asian circuit. The country has a solid backpacking scene, it’s great value for money, it boasts some excellent military museums, and it casually flaunts enough temples, ruins, jungles and beaches to draw in both relaxers and revellers from all corners of the world. But what Vietnam also has that’s missing from other countries in the region is the influence of its plump Chinese neighbour and the thousand years of history shared between them, especially in the north. Indeed, with red flags waving on almost every corner, the symbol of communism still feels strong throughout the country. Yet the rules of capitalism clearly dominate Vietnam’s commerce, with thanks no doubt to some of the most horrendous atrocities ever committed by man. What happened on this land won’t be forgotten in a hurry, but it would seem through the pleasant and warm nature of the Vietnamese people that it has been already forgiven. – Daniel

Top Tips

The food in Vietnam changes with each region, so don’t expect the same dish twice. There are also regional specialities that you might want to be on the lookout for.
If possible, give yourself a good few weeks here. The country is long and fairly thin, so you can expect long travel times – although there is a fairly excellent train service running between and (which can be booked online through ).
The climate can be quite different between the north and south, especially during the winter months and especially if you find yourself at elevation. Bring a variety of clothes (layering works well) to make the most of your time here.
Watch out for the traffic, especially the waves of motorbikes in the big cities. Cross the roads slowly, confidently, and a little way back from the crossing (if you’re not using it).
