A land of brilliant-green paddy fields, pristine beaches and beguiling cities, with a history that is compelling and people as entrenched in tradition as they are embracing of the future.

"Expect an old-fashioned travel experience complete with a good old-fashioned welcome."

With so much history, culture and natural beauty, it’s no surprise that the popularity of Vietnam (and indeed, IndoChina) has soared in the last ten years. Vietnam is perhaps the most unexpected: a beguiling, charming and dazzling destination.

The north’s misty mountains (including South East Asia’s highest, Mount Fansipan), Halong Bay’s limestone karsts, lush rice fields and unspoilt beaches combine with the emerging new Vietnam – one of upscale resorts and hotels, fine dining and shopping arcades, bringing the country into the tourism spotlight.
