Vietnam is beautiful, versatile and friendly and boasts a unique, elongated “S” shape with a long coastline dotted with wonderful destinations. Go north and you will be exploring lush rice terraces and get close to local hill tribes. You’ll sail Halong Bay and beat the crowds by kayaking its more unexplored and secret areas. Go to the center and you will find culture and history, bike rides into the countryside and colonial-era relics. Go south and explore the modern commercial hub Saigon, a local Mekong Delta experience or enjoy laid-back beach days on the sand dunes of Phu Quoc island.

“…I love travelling so when I have time, I travel to the places that I have not been to."
My last trip was to Phu Quoc Island with my family and is one of my most precious travel experiences. It is a great place for relaxing and it is fantastic to discover the island dotted with beautiful beaches. Da Nang and Hoi An are my favorite places to recommend in Vietnam. I still find the old quarter in Hoi An intriguing and interesting and the nearby beach in Da Nang is excellent. The local food is delicious and cheap and it is easy to reach by train or by plane.
“Although I love to travel in Vietnam, my trip to Bangkok is my most special memory. It's the first time I left Vietnam and even though I only had three 3 days, my excursion into the klongs (canals) was so impressive, as were the colorful evenings with the friendly local people. Coming back home has made me reflect upon travel and made me realize there are so many opportunities in life to seize.
Childhood experiences inspired me to travel. I was born in a poor countryside village and there was little chance to venture outside its borders. But I was very excited and eager to walk with some of my classmates to a far-away mountain. As I was standing on the mountain's peak with the wind blowing in my face while looking down I thought... this iss heaven! That's the emotion I want to pass along to everyone who walks into our Travel Center.
I believe every place has its own charm and I have been to most places in Vietnam. I love the hour-long trek to the top of the mountain in Cat Ba national park and the trek down to Cat Cat village in Sapa. I still recommend Ha Long Bay - the world heritage site - as it is a must-see for anyone traveling to Vietnam for the first time.
My best tip to make sure you truly experience Vietnam is to just be yourself immerse yourself in daily Vietnamese life. Seat yourself on a street stall stool in a crowded street, jump on a public bus, bicycle through the countryside and eat in the small (and cheap!) shops instead of in restaurants. That's the best way to experience Vietnam and any country.
