Is Vietnam the right destination for you?

Someone talks about Vietnam and you automatically think of spring rolls, pointed hats or shoulder yokes, those large sections of bamboo and their two suspended woven baskets. Our collective imagination has been flooded with these images... But do they correspond to the current reality of Vietnam? Even if they are not all representative of life in the cities, they still subsist in the countryside... However, Vietnam cannot be summarized by these f... Someone talks about Vietnam and you automatically think of spring rolls, pointed hats or shoulder yokes, those large sections of bamboo and their two suspended woven baskets. Our collective imagination has been flooded with these images... But do they correspond to the current reality of Vietnam? Even if they are not all representative of life in the cities, they still subsist in the countryside... However, Vietnam cannot be summarized by these few clichés. Its people have come far with a particularly turbulent 21st century. The country is now decidedly turned towards the future: Vietnam changes and evolves. The former children of the “boat-people” are returning to Saigon to fulfil their dreams and seek success. Hanoi has opened superb art galleries... For many, Vietnam consists of mountains and plateaus, Vietnam is marked by two major waterways, the Red River to the north, and the mother of all rivers, the Mekong to the south. Between equatorial plains, temperate plateaus and high summits, you will be awestruck by the tender green rice paddies, the canyons of Red River and the superb Mekong Delta.... And if beyond its people and nature you still need a reason to visit Vietnam, let’s mention gastronomy! Vietnamese cooking is one of the most renowned worldwide, light and refined by the same token: spring rolls of course, but also Pho, Cha cà, Oc nhoi and other delicious meals... See more

Best things to see and do for one week in Vietnam

What to see in one week

Vietnam has so many sides to it that it can be hard to see enough with just one week here. With a bit of careful planning, however, it can be done and you’ll be able to see Vietnam in all its glory, from its stunning beaches to its sometimes devastating history. For the most idyllic beaches in Vietnam, visit Phu Quoc Islandwhere you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the warm water. To get a sense of the natural beauty of Vietnam, visit one of its many national parks, each of which is totally different from the last. Cat Ba Islandis an excellent choice for any age and ability, with hiking trails of varying difficulty. Take a short boat trip out to the island before exploring on foot for the day. Phong Nha Ke Bang is another excellent option, with rivers, waterfalls, caves and forest spanning in every direction. Explore wet caves and see the bizarre formations that the rocks have taken on. Take a guided tour to hear all about the myths and legends surrounding the caves.


What to do in one week

Exploring some of Vietnam’s cities is a must on any 7 day itinerary and each city has its own unique sights, sounds and attractions. Visit Ho Chi Minh, formerly known as Saigon, to wander the fascinating streets and explore the French Colonial buildings that are dotted around the city. Visit the French Colonial Post Office to see this stunning architecture. Ho Chi Minh is the perfect place to pick up a few souvenirs to remember your trip and you’ll be able to explore the sprawling market complexes and find gifts at wholesale prices. While in Vietnam for you 7 day trip, why not learn a little about its history? Visit sites such as the Cu Chi Tunnels for an interactive experience that hammers home some of the difficulties faced by this country in the past. Continue exploring with a boat trip around Ha Long Bay to see the bizarre rock pillars that jut out of the water.


Best time to travel to Vietnam for a week

The best times to visit Vietnam are during the slightly cooler seasons of Spring and Autumn, where rainfall is less frequent and humidity is lowered. Due to the long, thin shape of the country, the weather patterns can vary enormously between North and South and so visiting the entire country can make choosing when to go difficult. Generally speaking, you may have to prepare for different weather patterns and pack a few waterproof items to make sure that you aren’t caught unawares. With this in mind, Vietnam is truly a year round destination, meaning that whenever you decide to visit, you’ll have an unforgettable trip.
