North and South, Mountain and Beach, Old and New. Vietnam is truly a country of contrasts. The North tempts the adventurous with rugged mountains and limestone karsts in the Northwest, majestic Ha Long Bay and the ancient-modern capital Hanoi. Head to the centre to find yourself wandering through beachside towns or seeking cool escapes on highland plateaus. Further South finds you living large in the heart of modern Ho Chi Minh City or perhaps lazily cruising along the Mekong river through endless rice paddies.
These are other trips.
