This ensure you that you will get to enjoy all the amazing beaches, the rice paddies that you can see mile after mile in all directions, and to enjoy the abundance of fresh seafood that play an important part in the popularity of Vietnamese cuisine. You may have eaten Vietnamese cuisine in your country but if you taste the real thing, then you will marvel at the difference.
The finest adventures in Asia are found in Vietnam. The north is a dream to any keen trekker. The roads and trails that follow the original route of the Ho Chi Minh trail and continue into the delta offer great riding. Kayaking and rock climbing are fun adventures if you happen to go to the central highlands. If you are interested in Vietnamese culture, you can visit the tribes in the minority hill in the areas near the places you are exploring. You can even stay in a home in the village for a night or two to get up close and personal with the Vietnamese natives.
