Traveling to Vietnam not only means having fun and spending some quality time with family members, but it also means making a few days of your life special and memorable. As much as Vietnam offers a marvelous attraction site, from the soaring mountains and interesting tribal groups in the north to the sparkling waters of the Mekong Delta in the South, it also proposes one of the prime luxury services in world travel ensuring that your stay in this country doesn’t only revolve around finding cheer in scouting the vast landscapes of natural beauty and culture but give you a chance to enjoy solace and luxury each and every day as well.
One of the biggest trends in the modern luxury market is the shifting focus towards experiences over material things. This may be partly due to the view that experiences are harder to commodify: meaning they are more likely to be authentic. Vietnam however, combines these two cases by giving you a great virtual experience in the luxury services they have to offer such as top-class resorts, enchanting tours, exquisite restaurants and bars, prime transport systems, elegant medical facilities and definitely not forgetting tantalizing cuisines.
Appetizing Delights of Vietnam
Vietnamese cuisine is distinct, mouth-watering and bursting with flavor. A divine concoction of sweet, salty, sour and hot flavors, not overly spicy, with rice, noodles, fresh vegetables and herbs all playing a big role; there’s no wonder that over the years it has become more and more popular around the world. With more than 500 traditional dishes to indulge your taste buds, Vietnam is the perfect destination for foodies and the various exquisite restaurants include:
- The Green Tangerine
- Ancient Huè
- Temple Club

Moving with Class and Confort
From being pedaled along in a bicycle to a wild ride on a motorbike taxi to jetting among more than 20 airports, Vietnam transportation runs as big a scale as you’ll find anywhere. If you want to travel the length of the country, it will all depend on your time, budget, flexibility and sense of adventure. With limited time, hopping from north to middle to south by air makes a lot of sense. For more remote destinations like the Northern Highlands, taking the train and hiring a car and driver is the best option. If you have more time and patience than you do cash, the bus system might be a possibility. Or, if you were born to be wild, you just might hop aboard a motorcycle.
Vietnam is home to more than 20 airports. Major international carriers include Vietnam Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Korean Air, China Southern Airlines, Thai Airways, AirAsia, Jetstar and Hong Kong Airlines.
Vietnam is served by 1,600 miles of rails, with the main line, known as the Reunification Express, running from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. Among its many stops are popular tourist areas like Hue, Danang and Nha Trang.
On the other hand, the best bus options for tourists are the privately-operated buses usually referred to as “open tour” buses.
For tourists who are visiting both Cambodia and Vietnam, a popular route between the two countries is the fast boat from Phnom Penh to Chau Doc. Of course, you can also travel in luxury down the Mekong on a private tour company’s river cruise too.
All this and many more prove, without a doubt, that Vietnam is a luxurious and exquisite place to travel to. “A heaven on earth” destination that does its best to make you feel home away from home.
