It’s hard to imagine a country torn by a long drawn war barely 40 years ago and still bubbling with incredible energy and buoyant with hope.
But, Vietnam has done it. In less than four decades since the savagery and slaughter of the American War, this spectacular Southeast Asian nation has buried the hatchets and has left its depressing past behind, making way for a brand new idea that has gripped the country—commercialization. The result has been outstanding, brand new glittering cities, influx of tourists, better infrastructure, warm, friendly, eager to please locals and above all value for each penny spent—making it an ideal destination to travel. And once you step onto Vietnamese soil, it is so easy to fall in love with its uniqueness and idiosyncrasies.
Fun, exciting, relaxing, engaging and fulfilling, all at the same time, Vietnam will offer you more than you can handle as a tourist and you are sure to return home singing a happy song. We too got smitten by this soulful country for more reasons than one. But to sum it up here are 5 reasons why we fell in love with Vietnam.
