The choice of wanting to undertake a journey to discover that long strip of land overlooking the South China Sea has generated in me and Alberto a new doubt: which areas we will visit? North, Central or South?
The total area of Vietnam is 331 689 km². In the north of the country there are landscape of incredible beauty, populations with typical costumes and colorful markets, charming towns rich of temples and pagodas and, finally, the beautiful scenery of Halong Bay, heritage of UNESCO, navigable on board of wooden boats. In addition there is also the capital Hanoi built on the right bank of the Red River.
The center is full of places with timeless charm like Hoi An, the city of silk lanterns, the Venice Vietnamese that overlooks on Thu Bon River.
His magic comes from the fact that the full moon nights are celebrated with the lighting of millions of colorful candles exposed along roads and canals to illuminate the road of the travelers.
In the South of the country, however, there is the modern city of Ho Chi Minh, the ancient Saigon, the largest city of Vietnam which is on the west bank of the river.
The southwest is the region of the Mekong Delta characterized by floating villages and where the river flows into the South China Sea.
Also there are wonderful beaches: the most famous are those of Phan Thiet and Mui Ne, very popular destinations for people who practice water sports such as surfing, wind and kite surfing.
It was not an easy decision, but, thinking of the idea of lounging by observing the waves of the sea, for this trip we have chosen to explore South Vietnam.
