If you want a holiday of a lifetime I think Vietnam has to be your pick. Some of my highlights are kayaking at Tu Long Bay and speeding around the streets with a guide on a scooter. Exploring the beautiful beaches is also not to be missed!

Vietnam is a country incredibly close to my heart. I spent three months travelling, living, and teaching across the entire country and have the fondest of memories of my time there. It’s almost impossible to pick a highlight as the entire region offers spectacular experiences, dramatic scenery, and some of the warmest, friendliest people I’ve ever encountered on my travels. In the South, I spent time floating through the tranquil waterways of the Mekong Delta to stay with the locals that call Vietnam’s ‘rice bowl’ their home. Whatever you’re after from your time away, you’ll be sure to find it in Vietnam!

The first time I travelled to Vietnam I adored the buzz of the cities – from Hanoi all the way to Ho Chi Minh City and especially the softly lantern lit streets of Hoi An ancient town. Everywhere you go there’s a smorgasbord of incredible food and excellent shopping. The next time I was lucky enough to return to Vietnam I headed to the hills to stay with the Thai Tribe in beautiful Mai Hich village and the explored stunning national parks with their towering limestone forests and spectacular caves.
