Astonishingly exotic and utterly compelling, Vietnam is a country of breathtaking natural beauty with a unique heritage. Unforgettable experiences are everywhere in Vietnam. Theres the sublime: gazing over a surreal seascape of limestone islands from the deck of a traditional junk in Halong Bay. The ridiculous: taking 10 minutes just to cross the street through a tsunami of motorbikes in Hanoi. Ancient temples display distinctly Chinese influences in the north and Hindu origins in the south. Meanwhile the broad, tree-lined boulevards and grand state buildings that grace the capital date from the French colonial period. Coffee, rooted in the French influence, is a huge export business and innumerable coffee shops are everywhere.
