From the urban excitement in the south to the remote serenity of the north, Vietnam is awash with things to do, mountains to climb and beaches to escape to. Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) – the metropolis formally known as Saigon – has a complex past and bright future. The modern city is vibrant and dynamic, and it rarely sleeps. Visit the War Remnants Museum to see exhibits relating to the Vietnam War and the first Indochina War with the French colonialists. In the same area, you will find the striking Notre Dame Cathedral and the equally impressive Central Post Office, which both date from French colonial times.

Staggering natural beauty abounds all over Vietnam but particularly in the North.
