Vietnam is a land that overwhelms most visitors with the sublime beauty of its natural settings from the spectacular limestone islands of Ha Long Bay in the north to the vast wetlands of the Mekong Delta in the south.


A bustling, dynamic and industrious center of commerce and culture, it is the largest city in the country, the economic capital, and the cultural trendsetter. The streets, where much of the city's life takes place, are a charming jumble of endless markets, shops, pavement cafés, stands-on-wheels and sidewalk vendors selling everything from high definition televisions to live seafood. It's impossible not to be infected by its distinct combination of native heritage, French cultural influence, and 21st-century globalization as modern skyscrapers stand side-by-side with fading colonial buildings, Chinese-style pagodas, and historical landmarks such as the Notre Dame Cathedral, Old Post Office and the Reunification Hall.
