Vietnam is one of the hidden treasures in Southeast Asia. Known as the land of the 'Ascending Dragon', this S-shaped country offers a refreshing twist on Asian culture and traditions. The country is an unexplored gem filled with stunning natural beauty, authentic culture, terraced rice fields, sumptuous cuisine, amusing nightlife and golden-sand beaches. Vietnam is praised for the most compelling natural wonders and seascapes with beautiful views. Travelers get to explore heritage retreats and experience outdoor adventures too. The Buddhist pagodas, war memorials and the French colonial landmarks are a must visit. Vietnam is bordered by China to the North and Laos and Cambodia to West. Thus, visitors often prefer combining Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam in a single extended program.
