No longer in the shadow of war, Vietnam has become a fast growing and vibrant travel destination. With over 3,300km of coastline stretching from the South China Sea to the Gulf of Thailand, there are dozens of diverse landscapes not found elsewhere in Indochina. From protected coral ringed islands, to ancient stepped rice terraces, to deep within the world's largest cave passage, this tropical Asian nation has an adventure for everyone.
