17 DAYS VIETNAM EXPLORER TOUR SUMMARY:


Welcome to Vietnam! Vietnam is a world where the colours are more vivid, where the landscapes are bolder, the coastline more dramatic, where the history is more compelling, where the tastes are more divine, where life is lived in the fast lane. And it is the latest Asian dragon to awake from its slumber. Vietnam is a nation of determined optimists who have weathered war after war, survived colonialism and communism, and are now getting to grips with the wheeler-dealer world of capitalism. Fiercely protective of their independence and sovereignty, the Vietnamese are graciously welcoming of foreigners who come as guests not conquerors. Come with TravelShop Turkey to explore the different sides of Vietnam!
