Located on the east coast of south-east Asia, Vietnam is a country rich with culture and tradition, and diverse in geography and history. Often associated with war and foreign occupation, Vietnam and its people are kind, generous, and welcoming.
The country bombards you with outstanding street food, colourful ethnic cultures, and challenging adventure.
Since the 1990’s Vietnam’s tourism has increased seemingly exponentially. The challenge now is to manage this, still relatively new, emerging sector, and to mitigate any harmful effects. The future of the country’s tourism industry is bright. Vietnam’s youth are now appearing to take hold of this viable sector and transforming it into one that is equitable, sustainable, environmentally and culturally sensitive, and profitable.
