Vietnam is rich in culture and soaked with tradition. There is a warmth to the people and the layers of culture are diverse. Inspiring landscapes are around every corner. History of war and foreign occupation is now history and can only be found in museums.
In general, the best way to travel Vietnam is to fly or take an overnight train between urban centres and use them as a base to explore the areas in and around them. Long distances and the country’s limited transport infrastructure makes road travel impractical if visitors want to experience more than one or two of Vietnam’s regions and have limited time.
