Vietnam TRAVEL GUIDE IN DEPTH

Why travel to Vietnam

Everything you need to plan where to go and what to do on your travel in Vietnam
Vietnam is a very unique country in that it has a large diversity of landscapes. Vietnam is a long and skinny country, with a distance of about 1,650 kilometers in length. However, Vietnam is a truly hidden gem that only those visiting the country themselves will be able to tell. To put it correctly, Vietnam is not short of World Heritage Site: Halong Bay, Phong Nha Ke Bang caves, Hoi An Ancient Street and Cham Islands are all recognized for their intense beauty. However, it is the bits and bites of the non-heritage site that will surprise you further. Da Lat, for example, is too picturesque to miss. French style villas sitting next to a pine forest, bordered by strawberry garden- you feel like Europe but the market scenes speak otherwise. Keo pagoda in Thai Binh province also exemplifies well the no-name beauty of Vietnam: feel the serenity of a religious place, situated amidst greeneries of paddy farms. Whether a must-see site or an off-the-beaten-path attraction, you will not be disappointed. Vietnam should be called ‘the land of endless smiles’. Friendliness is present in every corner, from the urban cities to rural countryside. Everywhere you go, you will be welcomed by smiles and kind helps from the locals- whether they know Vietnamese or not. People , for example, are famous all over the country for their royal-like attitude: elegant and sweet. The foods are a highlight of Vietnam. Combination of five fundamental tastes in the overall meal. Each Vietnamese dish has a distinctive flavor which reflects one or more of these elements. Common ingredients include fish sauce, shrimp paste, soy sauce, rice, herbs, fruit and vegetables. Vietnamese recipes use lemongrass, ginger, mint, Vietnamese mint, long coriander, Saigon cinnamon, bird's eye chili, lime, and Thai basil leaves.Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of dairy and oil, complementary textures, and reliance on herbs and vegetables.
