VietNOM! As you slink from old-world Hanoi to ancient Hue and on to pretty Hoi An via beachy Phan Rang and finally bustling Ho Chi Minh, you'll quickly realise that the Vietnamese know a thing or two about delicious food. Pho, bahn mi, rice paper, oh my! 

Highlights

Balance on a tiny streetside stool in Hanoi's Old Quarter, soaking up the buzzy vibes and watching motorbikes zoom past

Who'd have thought green seas and giant mossy rocks could be so pretty? Kayaking on Lan Ha Bay is bliss.

A little touch of France here, a little bit of China there - and all in Vietnam! Chill out in the cultural mixed bag of Hoi An. Hit up the local beach, cycle through rice paddies or get some sweet threads tailor-made
