    Major Tourist Attractions: Cu Chi Tunnels, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Hoan Kiem Lake, Vinpearl, Independence Palace

    Find out how a visit to Vietnam can be colorful, usually loud but exciting, and always delicious.

    A visit to Vietnam is often colorful, usually loud and always exciting. From the crammed streets of Ho Chi Minh City up to the peaceful rice terraces of Sapa, there is so much to see, do and eat here that it's impossible to make time for everything.

    Although Vietnam was only recently the site of one of the bloodiest wars of the late-twentieth century, there is no need for Western visitors to feel anxious. While memorials and mementos of the “American War” (as it is known here) remain prominent, the people of Vietnam are more than welcoming to tourists. Travel here is very safe with the biggest concerns being pick-pocketing and traffic safety.

    Vietnam's unique culture has survived and grown despite the recurring theme of foreign invasion. One of the biggest attractions here is the complex and delicious food scene. From French-inspired fine restaurant fare to street noodles, every meal in Vietnam is a delicate mix of flavors. In between meals there is plenty of time to explore the ancient temples which co-exist alongside busy modern streets in Vietnam's major cities.

    Some of the many unique activities found only in Vietnam include:

    • Order a custom made suit or dress from a Vietnamese tailor
    • Tuck into a steaming bowl of Pho, Vietnam's national dish
    • Visit the colorful floating markets in Mekong Delta
    • Rent a motorbike and visit rice fields and small towns
    • Sail Ha Long Bay and take in the majestic karst formations
    • Encounter the terror of war at the old DMC and the Cu Chi Tunnels
    • Visit the imperial palaces, shrines and tombs around Hue
    • Drink bia hoi, fresh beer, on the streets of Hanoi
