A fascinating destination, luxury Vietnam holidays have long been popular for cultural explorations and those who like to tour. Marvel at the ancient artefacts as you wander through the many city museums, visit the UNESCO World Heritage city of Hoi An and the Royal citadel in HuÃ©. A tour of the Chu Chi tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City will transport you back to the Vietnam War - at that time people lived and fought here and it makes for a truly dramatic and emotional experience.
Vietnam Food & Drink
Among the cuisines of Southeast Asia discriminating gourmets often select Vietnamese cooking as the best. This may be because cooking and eating are at the heart of local culture. Amazing dishes have subtle, light flavours while seasoning and herbs are highly prized. Thai and Indian traditions have influenced certain regions while major cities and tourist resorts have everything from street food stalls to select restaurants serving Western-style food as well as traditional fare.
Wildlife in Vietnam is diverse and plentiful. Throughout the country there are Reserves and National Parks and areas such as the Mekong Delta have been described as "treasure troves" due to the abundance of animal species. Here you can look for Indian elephants, tigers, leopards and monkeys. There are rare birds and exotic flora and fauna, rainforests and mangrove swamps. Ecotourists come to spot wild orchids, dwarf bamboos and, in the Halong Bay area, the Halong fan palm.
