With ruins of lost cultures, rugged mountains – home to minority villages – plus white-sand beaches, dense jungles and modern, busy cities, Vietnam is a truly fascinating place. Whether you’re planning on cruising Ha Long Bay, squeezing through guerrilla tunnels in the DMZ or mixing with locals at a bia hoi bar in Ho Chi Minh City, use our map of Vietnam to start planning your trip.

This vibrant destination has emerged from its past at an astonishing pace. Spend time soaking up some traditional Vietnamese culture – enjoy vibrant ethnic markets in Bac Ha and Can Cau, explore the palaces and hardens of Hue’s citadel, the former Imperial City, and feast on luscious food in beautiful Hoi An, the culinary capital. Take a snorkelling or dive trip out of Nha Trang, or float through the Mekong Delta and take in the serene Vietnamese scenery.
