Top 12 Vietnam holiday reviews

A holiday in Vietnam carries a certain allure that escapes some of its neighbouring countries, and has much to do with the post-war legacy and subsequent evolution as a top tourist destination in South East Asia. Immortalised so widely and vividly in film and literature, Vietnam is the kind of place that many travellers will have built up a picture of in their imagination long before they arrive. But the country that greets you in reality is guaranteed to exceed all expectations. So sit down on a tiny stool at the local Bia Hoi, and enjoy a taste of everything that a Vietnam holiday has to offer!
