Indo China - Itineraries
VietnamVietnam is a tropical paradise of charming people, delightful beaches, brilliant green rice paddies and lush rainforests. Like the rest of Indochina (including Laos and Cambodia), Vietnam is a former French colony and has been independent since 1954. Vietnam retains a strong French cultural influence, with wide boulevards, magnificent Belle Époque architecture and fresh baguettes sold on every corner. Unlike Laos and Cambodia, where the people have more in common with India, the Vietnamese are much closer culturally to China, with Confucian ethics valuing age, education and hard work. The Vietnam War has long since been forgotten, and the people are exceedingly warm and hospitable in this nominally communist country that is an absolute delight to visit.
