Vietnam really is a magnificent country...
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to live and work in the North of Vietnam, in Hanoi, which was such a unique and eye opening experience.
On the second half of the tour I was able to explore more of the South of Vietnam, from Hoi An, to Hue.
An absolute highlight of the trip was my first visit to the beautiful and historic city of Hoi An.
Hoi An was so different to other parts of Vietnam I had experienced. It felt untouched and I loved the history weaved through the town's architecture, food and shopping. Hoi An, truly is a melting pot of Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese culture.
The best way to get around is definitely by cycle, and a stroll through the markets after dark is a must. You will be treated to the most beautifully overwhelming display of colourful lanterns.
If you get the chance, a visit to Vietnam is a must. A country so vast and diverse, there is definitely something for everyone.
