Vibrant Vietnam: Colour, culture and culinary delights

Vietnam, in all its vibrant splendour, is a destination of great natural beauty, bustling with life and bursting with culture, history and wonderful culinary delights. There is so much to see, do and experience in Vietnam that it is little wonder it has become one of the most popular stops for backpackers, travellers and adventure tourists, while there is also plenty for those wishing to travel in style.Vietnam2

Dialaflight is currently offering 10 per cent off a 12-day culinary tour of Vietnam, taking in the stunning sights and flavours on offer across this beautiful country. Here we take a whistlestop tour of some of Vietnam’s greatest assets. Hopefully they’ll inspire you to sample the delights of Vietnam for yourself.

 

A country bursting with flavour
Vietnam3

With a culinary heritage built on fresh seafood and vibrant flavours, and centred around the famous, traditional floating markets and the bustling street vendors, food is an integral part of experiencing Vietnamese life and understanding its culture. Throughout the country you’ll see a contrast of styles and ingredients, but always with the emphasis on freshness and bold, exotic flavours.

 

Cities bustling with life
Vietnam4

From Hanoi in the north to Ho Chi Minh in the south, Vietnamese city life is bursting with colour and culture. Vendors offering authentic Vietnamese cuisine line the streets, while the locals travel with their lives loaded, precariously balanced on the back of flimsy looking scooters.Vietnam5

Beneath the seemingly chaotic thrum of city living however, you’ll also discover the likes of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh are steeped in history and spirituality and offer a glimpse of Vietnamese culture at its finest.

 

A landscape brimming with beauty
Vietnam6

Away from the hustle and bustle of Vietnamese city life, the landscape and natural beauty of this country is simply breathtaking. From the verdant green hills, valleys and rice fields of the interior to the stunning coastline, dotted with inlets and bays flanked by towering cliffs, the Vietnamese countryside is a feast for the eyes and a tonic for the soul.

 

Ha Long Bay

Visit the awesome Ha Long bay, with it’s floating markets, looming limestone cliff faces and sheltered beaches. This world-famous site is a must-see on any visit to Vietnam.

The Mekong Delta to the south of the country also represents one of the most treasured Vietnamese landscapes. Like Ha Long, the juxtaposition of a beautiful natural setting with the local culture means the Mekong Delta is teeming with vibrant life.
