Luxury Resorts in Vietnam with Only Exclusive Travel
Vietnam is one of Only Exclusive Travel's Top 10 Holiday Destinations 2014 and our Top Destination for Travel in May!
Lying on the eastern edge of the Indochinese peninsula, Vietnam is a beautiful ‘S’-shaped country. Although it may initially spring to mind as being the subject of much political unrest, its plethora of cultural intricacies, stunningly picturesque scenery and amiable locals make it an extremely welcoming and intriguing Asia holiday destination.
Their national slogan, ‘Independence – Freedom – Happiness’, beautifully encapsulates the collective personality of the nation even though the cultural offerings are varied. You can go from the French colonially influenced Hanoi in the north and the bustling and energetic Ho Chi Minh City in the south, near to Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers resort. As a communist country, Vietnam has no official religion and so people follow all sorts of creeds.
With 3000km of coastline outlining the mainland, Vietnam is endowed with stretches of stunning white beaches gradually sinking into the calm blue waters of the South China Sea, easily accessible when staying at The Nam Hai. Escape the exposing sun under the cover of towering jungle covered mountains whilst bathing in the waters. At the seaside, these magnificent rocky micro-islands protrude from the waters, emphasising our status as tiny humans on a vast globe of sea and land. Given that Vietnam’s narrowest point is only 30 miles (48km) wide, it is astounding how diverse its terrain is. Vietnam's mountains, forests, wetlands, and long coastline contain many different habitats containing hundreds of animal, bird and sea-life species. Explore the land perched upon a bicycle, as the locals do, and watch in awe at their expertly laden contraptions.
Further inland you can visit the shimmering paddy fields, the origin of much of the country’s rice exports. Other trades include crude oil, seafood, shoes, rubber electronic, coffee, and clothing lovingly brought about by smiling fishermen, farmers and craftsmen, many adorned in traditional cone-shaped hats. It is also worth spending a few Dongs (the currency in Vietnam) on the fragrant cuisine; Vietnamese food is a blend of Chinese and Thai styles and features seafood and home-grown fruits and vegetables. Sounds delicious.
