When is the best time to visit?
The best times to visit Vietnam are in the Spring (from February to April) or in the Autumn (from August to October). Learn more
Where to go in Vietnam?
Half a century has passed since Vietnam was the war-torn nation the world once knew, and in that time it has healed and begun to flourish. Consider visiting the astonishing scenery of Halong Bay, the chaotic and bustling city of Hanoi, and the spectacular caves of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
How many days do I need?
Travelers typically spend at least 2 weeks in Vietnam, although you can still put together a great trip in 7 days.
Getting Around Vietnam
Air travel is often the best option when traveling long distances within the country, though there are also nearly two thousand miles of railway that connect major cities like Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi—this is a (much) slower way to go, but with plenty of scenery and worthwhile stopping points along the way. Those venturing to the islands or Halong Bay will need to take a ferry or private boat. Learn more
