The beaches of Vietnam are some of the best in Asia. Unlike other countries is South East Asia, many of the resorts and villages have not been overly developed and so you can still experience the traditional charm and way of life which has existed there for hundreds of years. The gorgeous white sands of Ha My Beach and Cua Dai Beach, both in Hoi An, are some of the best on the planet and the highlight of any holiday here.
Visit historic Hoi-An on Vietnam's east coast, lively Nha Trang further south or the paradise island of Phu Quoc on Vietnam's southern coast. While each resort is unique, wherever you choose to spend your Vietnam holidays is guaranteed to offer a unique experience you are bound to fall in love with.
While Vietnam's many sandy beaches are certainly one of the top attractions, you cannot visit here without immersing yourself in some of the culture which has so defined the history of this nation. Visit the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh city, also known as Saigon, one of the defining sites of the Vietnam war. Make sure you also experience the varied cuisine on offer which is quite unlike anything else in Asia. Before the infamous Vietnam War, the country was colonised by France, leading to French influences in everything from cuisine to architecture - just look at Saigon's Notre Dame Cathedral as an example.
