Reveling in its rural beauty, old towns, modern youth and a plethora of colours, this small gem of Southeast Asia is a testament to perseverance which is depicted in the friendliness and candour of its people. For most people across the globe, Vietnam is remembered as a country ravaged by war, but what meets the eye is not only surprising but pleasantly surprising about this nation. 

To salute the leader and visionary who is revered by all, experience the bustling spirit of Hanoi, the capital of the country. Amidst the hundreds of motorbikes that line up each bustling street of this fantastic city, you are bound to experience a spur of energy as you walk along the pathways of the city. To pay homage to the nation’s leader, visit the marbled building that is the Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, every day hundreds of visitors patiently form a line to witness the leader for a few seconds. As you exit the mausoleum, walk a few steps to witness the yellow walled Presidential Palace which was originally built for the French Governor General of Indochina. Ho Chi Minh refused to live in the palace himself, but his humble abode can be explored near the grounds of the palace – from his cars to the intricate dining room and the place where he spent his last days, this tour will surely spark the interests of those who wish to know the life of Vietnam’s leader. 

Situated next to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the One Pillar Pagoda – to represent the Buddhist roots of Vietnam’s culture, this iconic temple is a single structural column where visitors go to pay their respects. While the site may not enchant those that have witnessed the pagodas of Burma and Thailand in their architectural glory, there is something strikingly spiritual about this quaint symbol which will surely capture the heart.
Apart from spurring an urban population and the evident youthfulness of the land, you cannot miss the natural landscapes that Vietnam has to offer. A ride across the glowing waters of Halong Bay in the bosom of a thousand islands is an experience that no one forgets. 

If you think you’ve experienced the igniting energy of Vietnam with a trip to Hanoi, then think again because Ho Chi Minh City is a hundred times more electrifying. Cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres and a nightlife that can beat the most happening clubs in New York or London, the city has come far since the time of war yet it continues to preserve the traces of that time in the form of the War Remnants Museum and the History Museum. 

Vietnam is the world in itself – once you come visit this gem, you’ll definitely want to visit again! Here is a 5-day itinerary for an unforgettable trip:
