Vietnam Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 62%, Vietnam has reinvented itself into a premier travel destination that has become easily accessible and the envy of other countries in the region. How have they done it? By packaging up the entire history of Vietnam - good and bad - for the world to come and see. Starting in the northern city of Hanoi, you can visit the tomb of Ho Chi Minh, a man who has transcended politics and become a godfather to most Vietnamese. A visit to stunning Halong Bay is also a must, where you can cruise through a network of rock monoliths that tower out of the water hundreds of meters into the air. Continuing south are the cities of Hu?, packed full of cultural sites and where you can have an entire wardrobe made to fit in a matter of days, and Nha Trang, one of the hippest beaches to just hang out and relax. A side trip to the high country of Dalat is also a must, as it provides the perfect opportunity to escape the humidity and enjoy some of the country's best trekking. Then eventually your road will lead to Ho Chi Minh City (old Saigon), where you can visit the War Remnants Museum and gain an understanding of the Vietnam War from the local perspective. A trip to Vietnam has it all - the good, the bad and the ugly - in a concoction that many countries have tried to emulate, but most have not been able to equal.
