Boasting a rich history, jaw-dropping mountain scenery, dirt-cheap prices, beautiful beaches, amazing architecture, welcoming locals, legendary food and parties that you will never forget (or is it never remember?), Vietnam could be considered the most well-rounded country in Southeast Asia. This epic country caters to all types of travellers and seems to be one of those places where one visit just isn’t enough. Experiencing an overnight boat trip in the unforgettable Halong Bay, becoming immersed in the magical Disneyland-esque town of the glowing lanterns in Hoi An, exploring the iconic cave systems of Phong Nha, cruising the famous Hai Van pass in open top Jeeps, and getting some much needed R+R on Vietnam's most famous form of transport - sleeper buses are just a few of the life changing experienes you'll have in Vietnam. Whether you start north in the capital of Hanoi, or south in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon, as in Ms), your first TruTravels adventure to Vietnam may not be your last. Try out Vietnamese cuisine, sip a beer under the stars as you sail Halong Bay National Parks and live your best Tru life as travel from South Vietnam to North Vietnam on your epic 13 day Vietnam adventure!
