Highlights of Southern Vietnam

In Vietnam’s southern highlands the scenery is spectacular and the climate soothing. No wonder the colonial powers sought out Dalat as their Summer retreat. Head towards the coast and the beach lover has a number of options: a busy resort in Nha Trang with some fantastic hotels or the lesser known and quieter resorts of Phan Thiet and Phu Quoc - a tough choice! The tropical south also offers nightlife and an exciting buzz in the former Saigon or for a more relaxing time journey deep into the Mekong Delta and witness a lifestyle and tradition that has changed little over the years. A wonderful part of this versatile country.

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is a bustling, energetic city which is embracing the new lease of economic life that Vietnam is experiencing. With its tropical climate and constant buzz it may have more in common with Bangkok than the more sedate Hanoi, which is some 1,080 miles away.

 

Can Tho

Can Tho is located in the centre of the Mekong Delta, 100 miles from Ho Chi Minh City, on the Hau River which is considered to be the region’s benefactor as its yearly floods deposit large quantities of alluvia over the paddy fields.
