Vietnam Travel Booking
Located on trade routes connecting Europe and the Far East, Vietnam unfolds like a huge snake for 1,650 km along the China Sea.
Troubled in recent times, this country whose beauty has always inspired Westerners now faces a new challenge: skilfully managing its land and natural resources.
Everyone who goes to Vietnam agrees that it is a country in constant evolution. But Vietnamese culture is putting up a good fight against its economic difficulties and its inhabitants seem more attached than ever to their traditions, as evidenced by the prayers at family altars.
Vietnam has a tropical climate with two main seasons: cold and dry from November to April, and warm and rainy from May to October. Temperatures vary more in the north, in the Tonkin region where Hạ Long Bay is the country's tourist Eldorado. But in Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta the weather can change quite suddenly! So while you may visit Vietnam anytime, try to plan your trip so as to avoid a cold winter in the north or the monsoon period in the south.
Due to their natural curiosity the Vietnamese may speak to you and offer their assistance at the slightest occasion. Don't be surprised if the first questions they ask relate to your age and marital status. This is actually their way of being polite and has nothing to do with indiscretion. Markets and cafés are their favourite places for meeting and exchanging with others. Michelin's recommendations
