A few words about Vietnam


Having been shrouded in misconception for so long, travelers who hop the fence into Vietnam often share the same initial reaction: “It’s nothing like I thought it would be”.

Little does the world know of the country’s tropical beaches and surf-washed shores, the thousands of unexplored islands dotting the eastern coastline, the misty mountains that run along the Chinese border, or the enchanting silence of the southern delta.
