Add contrasts and variety to your journey with the rapidly changing country of Vietnam. Visit the busy commercial centre of Ho Chi Minh City and the quieter capital of Hanoi with its colonial-era tree-line boulevards and lakes; the natural beauty of Halong Bay and hill country with its tribal minorities; the imperial city of Hue and the ancient port of Hoi An. These destinations make Vietnam the ideal place for unique holidays to those who seek a new and fascinating travel experience.

Understanding Vietnam

The conquest of Vietnam by France began in 1858 and was completed by 1884. It became of French Indochina in 1887. Vietnam declared independence after World War II, but France continued to rule until its 1954 defeat by Communist forces under Ho Chi Minh.

Under the Geneva Accords of 1954, Vietnam was divided into the Communist North and anti-Communist South. US economic and military aid to South Vietnam grew through the 1960s in a attempt to bolster the government, and a bitter ensued, but US armed forces were withdrawn following a cease-fire agreement in 1973. Two years later, North Vietnamese forces overran the South reuniting the country under Communist rule.

Despite the return of peace, for over a decade the country experienced little economic growth because of conservative leadership policies, the persecution and mass exodus of individuals-many of them successful South Vietnamese merchants-and growing international isolation.

However, since the enactment of Vietnam’s “doi moi” (renovation) policy in 1986, Vietnamese authorities have been committed to increased economic liberalization and enacted structural reforms needed to modernize the economy and to produce more competitive, export-driven industries.
