Vietnam — Vietnam only recently emerged from its war-heavy past but has quickly shot up to the top of Southeast Asian itineraries. Its newfound popularity is hardly surprising; this ancient land is an unparalleled feast for the senses, boasting an incredible array of natural wonders and cultural sights; a vibrant 4000-year history; a melting pot of 83 million people, including 54 ethnic groups; and superbly flavorful cuisine – all in a country that's roughly the size of Italy. Vietnam's brash metropolises of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) reveal the pulse of a country in flux, with the age-old and the brand-new intertwining at every step. The countryside holds more laid-back attractions like floating markets along the Mekong Delta, historic river towns like Hoi An, and limestone isles in Halong Bay.

Why Go

For bustling colonial cities, outstanding scenery, and historical sites commemorating the recent and turbulent history.
