At over 1,000 miles in length, Vietnam’s cities are as diverse as her culture and climate. The two main cities, elegant, ponderous Hanoi in the north and steamy, fast-paced Saigon in the south, could hardly be more different. But each is a clear window to the country’s colourful and extensive past.
The lengthy coastline features charming Hoi An, the untouched imperialism of Hue, and the enticing beaches of Nha Trang and Phan Thiet. To escape the tropical heat of the south, the former French hill station of Dalat nestles only a few hours from Saigon, and the stunning mountains of Sapa in the very north are easily accessible from Hanoi.
