A good place to begin your Vietnam holiday is in one of the country’s world-famous cities. Whether you’re exploring markets surrounded by French colonial influence in the capital up north and ‘Paris of Vietnam’, Hanoi, or visiting historic Ho Chi Minh City in the south, each city is full of culture and colour.
Enjoy fabulous cuisine and see pretty canals in Hoi An on the east coast, or experience Vietnam’s brilliant beaches. Danang is just minutes up the coast from Hoi An and has a beautiful stretch of golden beach and calm waters; Nha Trang is picturesque and a great choice for watersports; and for particularly unspoilt and romantic spots, Phu Quoc Island off the south-west coast is a must-visit.
