Why you MUST visit VIETNAM?
From foodies and beach hoppers to arts and culture buffs and adventure seekers, Vietnam is home to a diverse range of experiences of the old and new worlds. Classical buildings and beautiful natural settings make Vietnam a MUST-VISIT. Here are some reasons why we think everyone should visit Vietnam!
Vietnam houses one of the very oldest cultures in all of Southeast Asia, dating back to 2000 BC, its complicated history starts from its native Dong Son culture and spans for thousands of years.With influences from cultures of the Chinese, Khmer, Indian and French colonialism, Vietnam is truly special in both its culture and history.
Vietnam’s own capital, Hanoi, is old-fashioned. Stuck in the past with its French colonial history - you can find stunning cafes, architecture and wide tree-lined boulevards. Here, you can take a ride on one of the thousands of tuk-tuks and experience the daily rush of this Vietnamese capital.
Stop at one of Vietnam’s food stalls by the sidewalk, grab a stool and have your sit. Not long from when you’ve taken your seat, you’ll be faced with a delicious, heavenly bowl of Pho. Asides from Pho, Vietnam is known for its tangy, savoury and irresistible food, so eat away and fall in love with Vietnam as we do!
Best coffee in the world
Did you know? Vietnam is the second largest coffee exporter in the world. Vietnam boasts an excellent coffee culture that offers coffee of all sorts - from Black coffee to coffee with condensed milk, coffee with coconut milk, coffee with egg yolk, coffee with yoghurt; you just have to try it all!
If you don’t already have a Vietnamese friend, you will certainly find one by being in Vietnam! Vietnam is known as the ‘land of endless smiles’ because of the friendliness that pervades the nation. From urban to the most rural areas of the country you can definitely make lifelong friends and explore the local culture with utmost ease in this country.
Vietnam has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! The good and bad thing about it is that they are not that well known so you can discover the wonders of Vietnamese beaches without the large crowds of people with ease.
For people that love hiking. You’ll LOVE Vietnam. Home to the former Indochina, the Fansipan. Sapa town in the North of Vietnam attracts not only leisure travelers but also mountain hikers from all over the world. And it is no wonder to us at all!

Find peace in a temple...

...or better, in a cave
In Vietnam you can find some of the world’s most extraordinary subterranean landscapes. The most notable and popular is the gigantic Hang Son Doong.
