Cheap flights from Vietnam

Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by China to the north, Cambodia to the southwest, Laos to the northwest, and South China Sea to the east. Its capital is Hanoi. Vietnam’s culture has been heavily influenced by Southern China – primarily because of being a tributary state, and also a colony of China for a long time. Confucianism ended up forming the basis of Vietnamese society. However, other cultural influences have been adapted by Vietnam from its neighbouring Hindu civilisations like the Champa and the Khmer empires, not to mention the French colonisation which also left an impact on modern Vietnam.

Where to go

Exploring Vietnam equals to an interesting and fun adventure. It has gone through a turbulent past and you can still see the traces of the wars that transpired, but it just made its people resilient and positive about the future. Learn about its history and diverse culture as you navigate along. Visit the World Heritage-listed site, Halong Bay, by boat and see its majestic limestone isles, mystical caves, beautiful beaches, and if you cruise a little bit more, you’ll reach Lan Ha Bay and its sandy coves. The historic town of Hoi An is considered as the most atmospheric in Vietnam, boasting stunning architecture and breath-taking riverside. The famous Citadel (Kinh Thanh) houses the Imperial Enclosure, Forbidden Purple City, Flag Tower (or Cot Co, the tallest in the country), and the symbolic Nine Holy Cannons. The fast-paced and ever dynamic city of Ho Chi Minh will surely dazzle you as you navigate around its alleys, wander through its ancient pagodas, markets, malls, skyscrapers, restaurants, churches, and temples. Lastly, Hanoi, its capital, is home to legendary landmarks, impeccable architecture, natural scenescapes, as well as traditional and historic temples. Some of the places you should visit in the city are the Temple of Literature, Hoan Kiem Lake, Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, Bach Ma Temple, Hoa Lo Prison Museum, Ngoc Son Temple, National Museum of Vietnamese History, and Vietnam Military History Museum.
