It's easy to see why Vietnam is a country on the rise - there's no time for rest ... the world is there and the local residents are trying to scratch a dollar off it. After hundreds of years of war, reinvention and persistence are prevailing and the Vietnamese are thriving. What a fascinating country to visit in these times! Vietnam has a bit of everything - fresh and fragrant food, bustling and rambunctious marketplaces, beautiful mountains and beaches and stunning French-Colonial architecture. Such is the natural diversity along it's 2000km coastline, there's never a bad time to go.
