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 holds a place very close to my heart, having spent six months travelling, living, and teaching across the entire country. 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 met on my travels. My most memorable encounter though came in the heart of the unspoiled Phong Nha Ke-Bang National Park, where I took part in the annual corn harvest. 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. 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 explored stunning national parks with their towering limestone peaks and spectacular caves.
