Vietnam is one seriously special and unique country. Despite being in South East Asia, it doesn’t share many similarities with its neighbours. From mountain peaks to hectic streets, Vietnam is a non-stop sensory roller coaster. With three different climates (North, Central and South) travel along the country’s stunning coastline and meet hardworking and friendly local people along the way.
Vietnam has its own individual and impressive culture. From the expanse of Halong Bay, Ha Giang and Ninh Binh to eating Pho in a crowded local shop on a plastic stool in Hanoi, Vietnam is a country of extremes that you won’t forget anytime soon. Get in touch to chat our Mango Tiger Vietnam team!
