A MECCA for foodies and a paradise for beach bums, Vietnam is also loaded with cultural interest
Unforgettable experiences are everywhere in Vietnam.
There’s the sublime: gazing over a surreal seascape of limestone islands from the deck of a Chinese junk in Halong Bay.
The ridiculous: taking 10 minutes just to cross the street through a tsunami of motorbikes in Hanoi.
The inspirational: exploring the world’s most spectacular cave systems in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
The comical: watching a moped loaded with oinking pigs weave a wobbly route along a country lane.
And the contemplative: witnessing a solitary grave in a cemetery of tens of thousands of war victims.
