Good to know
Vietnam's energy is not like any other country's. The intense and multifaceted Vietnamese local culture, combined with colonialist influences, brews a beautiful landscape. Walking through Hanoi is like entering a whole new world; bicycles, motorcycles circle French colonial style buildings and the smell of exotic fruits may permeate your memory. Don't miss out on exploring places like Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park and Halong Bay.
