Popular with backpackers and luxury travelers alike, Vietnam has witnessed a steady surge in foreign tourism since it opened it doors to visitors in the early 1990s.
This is a land of contrasts: the perfect blend of time-honored traditions with the techno-craze of the twenty-first century, a unique mix of Communist doctrine with government-endorsed transition to a market economy, and the magnificent geographical diversity from north to south and areas inland.
Whether you are here for its stunning natural landscapes, its flavorful cuisine, its sinfully cheap shopping, or a taste of its tumultuous past, you will find Vietnam's residents to be universally welcoming, generous, and highly cultured.
