Vietnam is an incredibly diverse country. Beautiful beaches, dense jungles, soaring mountains, bustling cities, and quiet small towns- it has it all. Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are the gateways to this amazing country, with towns like Hoi An, Nha Trang, Dalat, and Halong Bay spotted in between- each having its own unique vibe. Another integral section of the SE Asian ‘Backpacker’s Circuit’, Vietnam is extremely traveler friendly, with cheap transportation and accommodation options abounding. Rich in history and yet reaching for the future, Vietnam is a country on the rise, and is well worth a visit while in SE Asia.
