Haiphong
10/13/2022
10/13/2022

Haiphong was the initial arrival point of the French; their final departure also took place from here on May 15, 1955. Because of its importance as a major port, Haiphong was subjected to heavy U.S. bombing during the Vietnamese War. Before then, the city suffered devastating losses during the first Indochina
War when the French bombarded Haiphong in 1946. Much of the French colonial architecture survived the bombardment and can be seen in the area around the theater square in downtown Haiphong. Also of interest are the numerous street markets, a casino and a resort. Haiphong serves tourists as a gateway to Hanoi, capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. See the Fine Arts Museum, the Water Puppet Theater, Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum and the Ho Chi Minh Museum. There are ancient streets blooming with the same lotus flowers that have existed here for centuries. Hundreds of pagodas and temples around famous lakes and verdant parks also lend Hanoi a particular charm.

Hanoi

Hanoi is a city with a history that dates back to the 7th century. In 1954 Hanoi was declared the capital of the Democratic Republic of North Vietnam, and in 1976, following the Vietnam War, it became the capital of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. This political history has made Hanoi one of the country's most fascinating cities to explore. The most renowned of all the monuments is the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. It is dedicated to Vietnam's most well-respected President, who in 1945, led his country to independence. Other highlights include the Museum of History, containing ancient artifacts from Cambodia, Thailand, Japan and China, the 11th century One Pillar Pagoda and legendary Sword Lake.

Halong Bay
10/14/2022
10/14/2022

Meaning “Bay of the Descending Dragon,” Halong Bay’s water is calm and undisturbed despite the jutting limestone mountains that soar out of the water and toward the sky. As if a tail of a Dragon plunged into the earth, the mountains are craggy, sharp, and barren, and are dotted with thousands of small caves of various depths and heights. At dusk, they all take on mysterious shades of gray, mauve and olive, lending credence to the local legends.

Da Nang
10/16/2022
10/16/2022

Da Nang is on the threshold of becoming a major destination for tourists from Europe, Australia and the United States, thanks to some unique attractions, spectacular scenery and the friendliness of the locals. The French influence is evident in Da Nang's provincial character which dates back to the 19th century, with later history wrought by war. It was here on the coast that the first U.S. combat troops landed on March 8, 1965. As the war progressed, Da Nang’s runway was expanded to become the largest in all of Southeast Asia. Da Nang fell to the Viet Cong in March 1975; this signified South Vietnam's defeat in the war. Among the city's numerous attractions is the much-touted Cham Museum, housing close to 300 Cham sculptures. Here history lovers get a glimpse into a very powerful era of Vietnam's past. Da Nang, however, may be most familiar to Americans who watched the movie Good Morning Vietnam and the popular television series China Beach - which immortalized a popular R&R GI resort of the Vietnam War.

Qhi Nhon

10/18/2022

In Vietnam's Central Champa Kingdom lies the city of Qui Nhon. It reached its claim to fame in 1799 when a French missionary, M. Pigneau de Behaine, died here while closing in on the city under the rule of Tay Son. Earlier in 1792, and then again later in 1801, Tay Son's Navy vessels were destroyed near the harbor of Qui Nhon under the order of Nguyen Anh, the former leader of Vietnam. Today this city offer visitors a chance to see the Cham ruins, Quang Trung Museum and two important Hung Tanh Towers, believed to date from the 13th century.

The main attractions of the coastal town of Nha Trang’s are its white sandy beaches, deserted islands and backdrop of rolling, verdant mountains. It is quite possibly Vietnam’s closest answer to a develoPed tropical resort. The Nha Trang area offers the best year-round weather in Vietnam; its clear waters and four miles of clean, uncrowded beaches encourage swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling. For now you can enjoy a relaxed seaside resort town, with a lively market, wide streets and uncrowded beaches.

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
10/21/2022
10/21/2022

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is often referred to as Vietnam’s jewel and the Pearl of the Orient. Located in south Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City is the country’s largest city, with more than six million people and over one million motorbikes. Under the current regime the city is once more being rebuilt. Whole blocks are disappearing, being replaced by concrete, steel and glass structures. Central Saigon, which is still the official name for the city center, shows evidence of the French colonial city, with wide, tree-lined boulevards, sidewalk cafés and elegant French architecture. The city is divided into two sections: Saigon, the municipal and historical district, and Cholon (Chinatown), where the entrepreneurial talent and private funds are concentrated. Cholon appears to be the most populated and in general the most vigorous part of Ho Chi Minh City. It is well worth a visit for its bustle and activity and its pagodas, which are reputed to be the finest in the whole city.
