From the beautiful green rice fields, to the stunning Mekong Delta, to the impressive landscape located right outside the cities, Vietnam really is a country that has been blessed by nature. Those who are fortunate to explore this area of the world can enjoy white-sand beaches, roam busy street markets, trek around the beautiful mountainous region of Sapa, or get off the beaten track and explore some of the sleepy villages in the countryside, whatever it is you choose to do, you won’t be disappointed.
