Lanterns in Hoi An

Video: One Month in Vietnam

We ended our travels in 2013 with a one-month trip to Vietnam. Our journey started in the north of the country, where we discovered our favourite Asian city, Hanoi. During our week-long stay there we spent day after day in museums, palaces and temples and took an overnight boat trip in the beautiful-yet-crowded Halong Bay. We then headed south on the train to Hué to see ancient tombs and the old Citadel, continuing on from there to Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage City which wasn’t quite as nice as Laos’ Luang Prabang.

After a quick stop at the White and Yellow Sand Dunes of Mũi Né we then headed up into the highlands to spend our first Christmas away from the UK in Dalat. Our adventure ended with a week in Saigon where we celebrated the New Year, caught up on some war history and explored the Cu Chi tunnels.

If you’re heading to Vietnam then you’ll probably need an invitation letter for your Visa On Arrival, we recommend Vietnam Visa as they provide a professional, efficient and transparent service.

Our Vietnam Video

After our visit to Vietnam we would encourage anyone to visit and see the country for themselves, there’s so much diversity from the beaches to the bustling cities to the beautiful mountains. The hospitality we received in the country, particularly in Hanoi, was exceptional. So here it is, our Vietnam video in all its glory, I hope you enjoy!

    We’ve never been to Viet Nam, but you certainly seem to have captured the essence of the country. I’m going to share this on my blog’s FB page, so my readers can get a glimpse of Viet Nam. Well-done!
