Vietnam is nestled in the ASEAN region with ten other countries that boast rich diversity in cultural heritage, history and religion. From the southern region of the Mekong Delta to the sandy shores of Long Beach in Phu Quoc to the ancient cities of Hoi An, Hue and Hanoi, Vietnam welcomes travellers with open arms and myriad opportunities to explore the country’s fascinating nooks and crannies.
If you’d rather soak in the gorgeous sights and cool weather, head to the central highland of Da Lat and hike up natural waterfalls, or make your way to Sapa and climb the highest mountain in the Indochina region of Fansipan. Oh, movie buffs will love this – glide down the awe-inspiring Halong Bay and imagine yourself in the footsteps of Tom Hiddleston when he shot the film, Kong: Skull Island. While you’re out and about exploring Vietnam, you can also volunteer for numerous projects run by social enterprises and contribute to their work that impacts the local communities.
