While you can go to Vietnam just to relax on the beach there is so much more

to do – enjoy an overnight cruise in Halong Bay and stroll around the graceful

capital Hanoi. In the centre of the country the old imperial capital of Hue has

the best monuments and a couple of hours south is everyone’s favourite spot;

Hoi An. Here the atmospheric old trading town is the perfect base to relax

perhaps at one of the fabulous nearby beach hotels. Elsewhere do not miss

out on frenetic Ho Chi Minh city or think about one of the beautiful beach

areas of the south such as Con Dao.
