Vietnam Travel Tips

Vietnam welcomes visitors with rich cultural traditions and sprawling natural beauty unlike anything in the Western world. Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon, is the pulse of Vietnam, with its bike-laden streets, bustling markets, and traditional vendors. Hue, Vietnam's cultural center, and former capital city, boasts the beautiful Thuan An Beach, Royal Tombs and the spectacular moated Citadel. The hustle and bustle of Hanoi, blended with the rich traditions of Vietnam, gives visitors a glimpse of how Vietnam’s past coexists with modern day living. From exploring the islands of Halong Bay or roaming the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, Vietnam offers something exciting for every interest.

Vietnam has a temperate tropical climate. Generally, the rainy season runs from November through April, and the hot, dry season runs May through October. The country is no stranger to severe weather, as the rainy season sees the occasional typhoon.
