Vietnam offers a varied range of experiences - with its rich intriguing history, serene beaches, luxury cruises in the emerald water of the bays, scenic mountain landscapes, the din of large city, vibrant night life and delightful gastronomical treats.
Its a latitudinally long country, and one needs at least a week to get an experience of what it has it offer. And what better a way to explore the culture than to hop onto a bus or rent a bike and traverse the off-road paths, explore the country-side, mingle with the locals, shop from the local markets. But, if you only have a few days at hand to explore the country, here are a few places that are a must-see!
We started out from central Vietnam (Da Nang) and made our way up north to Hanoi. Depending on your travel goals, one can start from the South (Mekong Delta or Siagon) and gradually head up north, or vice-versa. Buses/trains are easily available for inter-city travel, but I suggest to book them once you land there.
