War is, perhaps, the first image in mind of almost people when thinking of Vietnam. But it is not. It is just the image of old Vietnam, and it has been replaced by peace and safety for a long time. The country is now opening to the world as a friendly and exotic place on earth to be.
So why don’t you think of coming. I’ll name some of the reasons why you should:
1. It has a lot to see.
Formed in S-shaped, Vietnam is a thin country stretching for thousands of Km from North to South. It has beautiful mountains with colorful hill tribes. It has highlands with their everlasting rudimentary traditions. It has beaches and many of those are considered best in the world but still, they’re not touristy. Does it sound cool enough to discover?
2. It is safe and friendly.
Going through fierce wars, Vietnamese understand that peace is a sacred thing, and they do their best to protect their peace. Going to every destination along the country, you will be welcomed by smiles and kind helps from the locals.
