Vietnam is a long and narrow country in South East Asia. This Vietnam Travel Guide contains a two week itinerary that takes you all the way from south to north. It borders Cambodia, Laos, and China. Its recent history is one of war and rebellion. Remains of the US war history can be seen in the capital Ho Chi Min City but also along the DMZ in central Vietnam. The French colonization also put a stamp on the architecture in the major cities. In central Vietnam there are several remains of the old Cham Empire of which My Son Sanctuary is probably the most famous. It’s also home to beautiful white beaches, jungles, and beautiful rice paddies along the Mekong Delta. Remote hill tribes can be found in the far north and lower western central Vietnam. This Vietnam Travel Guide will show it all! Vietnam is a country perfect for a first-time trip to South East Asia and one that I recommend everyone to visit.
