Vietnam is a splendid country whose geographical silhouette draws the shape of a dragon, symbol of strength and benefits in the Far East. From Halong Bay to the Mekong Delta, from the capital Hanoi, with its preserved colonial architecture, to Ho Chi Minh City, the great city of the South, Vietnam offers images of a timeless Asia, miraculously preserved. Despite staggering economic growth, Vietnam has not sold its soul and remains amazingly vibrant and authentic.
