There are few countries that have changed in such a short time as Vietnam has. With less than 40 years having passed since the American War this nation has successfully put the bitter events of it’s past behind it and is now one that is full of hope and focussed on the future.
With roads being upgraded and new hotels being built access is now easier than ever before which has led to an increase in the number of people choosing Vietnam holidays as their holiday destination of choice.
People choosing Vietnam holidays will find a wide variety of things to see and do within the countries major cities, all of which will offer them intrigue and excitement. In order to fully experience everything that Vietnam has to offer, taking some time to soak up the country’s striking landscape is however an opportunity not to be missed.
With mountains accounting for 40% of the country’s land area and tropical forests covering around 42% Vietnam is mostly hilly and densely forested. The northern part of the country consists mostly of highlands and the Red River Delta which is an agriculturally rich area devoted to rice cultivation. The south on the other hand is divided into coastal lowlands, the mountains of the Annamite Range and extensive forests.
In order to get the most from your holiday careful consideration needs to be given to when the best time to travel is. Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate which is dominated by the southern monsoon from May to September and the northern monsoon from October through to April. The summer monsoon brings rain to the two deltas and to the west facing slopes while the winter monsoon picks up moisture and brings it to both the central coast and the eastern edge of the highlands. Temperatures in the south tend to remain relatively consistent all year round however the north experiences clear seasonal differences. The southern monsoon rains can sometimes make transport more complicated and even wash out roads so it is highly recommended that you book one of the organised Vietnam Tours that are available opposed to going it alone.
