Travelling to Vietnam offers a rare opportunity to see a country steeped in tradition and beauty, a country hesitantly entering into the modern world. The journey starts in bustling Ho Chi Minh City and continues to the rice plains of the Mekong Delta. Stretching from the Hoam Lien mountains eastwards across the Red River Delta to the islands of Halong Bay, the north of the country offers some wonderful scenery. After Hanoi and the north, the documentary concludes with a road/rail journey south again via Hoi An, Nha Trang and Yung Tau. After watching this, you will want to visit the country.
If you are contemplating travelling to Vietnam then this travelogue will give you a unique opportunity to preview some of the many wonderful aspects of this country. It will also act as a colourful reminder of a past visit. The programme can be enjoyed equally by the armchair traveller.
