Vietnam, in the impression of the majority, is a country fulfilled with conflicts: heavy history, tough battles, still under developing and poor, and the beautiful Vietnamese bride…
In fact, its beach has been named one of the world’s top 6 fine white beaches by Forbes.
Its island has been selected as one of the world’s top 10 most romantic spots by LonelyPlanet.
It has a stunning fishing village with half sea and half desert. It also has the French romance in Duras’s “Lover”.
For such a country with hills and coasts, you will have to calm down and slow your pace if you want to find out more about its humanities and cultures. Just like the main character Mei in the movie “The Scent of Green Papaya” directed by Vietnamese Chen Yingxiong, crouch down to watch ants and look up to admire stars…
The trip, covering all places of interests stretching along the geographic length of Vietnam, enables you to witness the panoramic view of landscapes and diversified cultures within 10 days. The main attractions feature the vivid French-style structures of Ho Chi Minh, the verdant and internal the fertile Mckong Delta, the ancient town of Hoi An in series with Da Nang’s imposing mountainous area and the royal former capital Hue city, along with peaceful Ha Noi and breathtaking Ha Long Bay.

It seems that we are always urged to grow up since we were born. When we finally become adult and live the way we want, someone else urges you: hurry up, get married, hurry up and have children…
In fact, it seems that there is nothing wrong. However, it is always too fast and we will finally get tired. We get too tired to think about the meaning of what we are doing. We are tired of working every day and just want to lie down and go nowhere. In fact, all these don’t matter. It is just scared if we lose ourselves.
