Vietnam travel is a rising industry in the country. Tourism is rising because people are beginning to notice the fantastic thing about a nation that has lain unexplored for so long. One of the most stunning of these locations, Ha Long Bay, is a wonderous sight of limestone marvel. Towers of rock stand as many sentinels for a bay of human inhabitants.
Hanoi - My all time favourite city has to be the capital, Hanoi. On the list of more touristy things to do here are the water puppet show and also a war museum, which as a Westerner is most enlightening. It's not often we get to see a war and all of its propaganda through a different lens. In the same vein, if not a little macabre, is a visit to see the preserved body of Ho Chi Minh. Away from the visitors attractions are some lovely streets to explore and some great eateries.
In Vietnam, the dress code is casual but conservative. Unless you plan on dinners at ultra-upscale restaurants, there is no need for formal clothes. When packing, the main thing to consider is the weather, as it can be cold in the northern mountains and at the same time, hot and humid on the central coast.
Traveling in Vietnam is more than just a visit to a land rich with history. It is a land of holistic healing and being one with nature. One of the best ways to experience Vietnam is to enjoy the relaxation of their holistic health spas and resorts. Tao Garden is the most well renowned natural spas in Asia and its popularity is growing fast to other continents.
Just as Vietnam has a long history of being conquered, it has an even longer history of overthrowing their colonizers against all odds to become the victors. Tenacity and quiet determination are characteristics that have held the Vietnamese people in good stead. Never was this more famously demonstrated than during the war against America.
From the capital of Hanoi, different tours can be made. Before exploring by yourself, however, take into account that for instance Halong Bay, but also the Perfume Pagoda, require boat transportation as well.
Vietnamese food is very delicious and well known all over the world. It is really a memorable experience to taste Vietnamese food right in Vietnam. However, you have to be careful when eating in restaurants. Even natives can be overcharged sometimes when they go to restaurants. There are some restaurants whose menus are just lists of dishes and don't include the prices.
Dalat is a world famous flower origin with so many local or exotic flowers on the streets, in the gardens and in the valleys bloom. When the car entered the ciry as if into a sea of flowers, the air is filled with flowers and aromatic fragrance. Dalat people love flowers; as long as there is a ray space each household would put all kinds of flowers in full bloom as charming, beautiful and pleasant.
Foreign capital is very excited about Vietnam's tourism possibilities. Billions have been in invested by many of the worlds best developers including Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talil.
