Vietnam is a different universe; it has everything so beautiful and raw. The natural beauty Vietnam is blessed with is incomparable; the rice fields, lakes, mountains and landscapes to beaches and islands. And it is not just natural beauty of Vietnam that attracts tourists, the history here is quite amazing as well, alongside food, culture and wonderful people. It has specific ancient traditions, long history of culture and also war, it has old temples and a lot of amazing remnants from wartime. Saigon or Hoi Chi Minh City is a major tourist attraction as it houses wartime memories from almost half a century back and buildings and structures from French dominance in Vietnam times as well. However, it is the country’s natural beauty in abundance that attracts most of the tourists.
