Home to stunning scenery, graceful colonial architecture, rustic villages, and vibrant cities, Vietnam has much to inspire and engage travelers. Admire the tree-lined avenues and French-inspired mansions of historical Hanoi, marvel at the forest-covered karsts rising from Halong Bay, experience buzzing Ho Chi Minh City—formerly known as Saigon—and explore the lush waters of the Mekong Delta to see floating markets, stilt towns, and fruit orchards where straw-hatted villagers tend to their fields and crops by hand.
