If you choose to take a holiday to Vietnam you will experience a magical mixture of fascinating culture, amazing history and beautiful scenery. Tourism is increasing in popularity for Vietnam. The number of visitors for vacations and other tourist activities has increased progressively for the past ten years. Because of this more money is being invested into the coastal cities to encourage additional tourism in the future. More people with English speaking skills are being hired in the service industries to make tourists feel more comfortable in such a far away destination.

Its width, stretching from east to west, is 600km at the widest point in the north, 400km in the south, and 50km at the narrowest part, in the centre, in Quang Binh Province. The coastline is 3,260km long and the inland border is 4,510km.
When you travel to Vietnam you will find that food sits very centrally in Vietnamese culture, as what ever the celebration there is always good food involved. Vietnamese cuisine varies slightly from region to region, with many regions having their own speciality dishes. Generally, northern Vietnamese cuisine is known for being quite bland while southern Vietnamese cuisine is known for being very spicy.
