Vietnam is located in the region of Indochina, south of China and east of Thailand. The country has a dramatic and spectacular history and has now experienced some 25 years of sustained development. An intriguing destination to explore, not just for culture, but also for golf and there are so many fascinating places to discover, including Halong Bay and Hoi An.
Vietnam is home to 90 million people, a country bigger than Italy and nearly 3 times longer than Great Britain. The capital of Vietnam is the amazing Hanoi situated in the far north, nearly 2 hours flight away from Ho Chi Minh in the deep south, Hanoi is the more formal city, the seat of power of the Government and boasts two beautiful lakes in its centre with many tree lined leafy avenues, especially in the French Quarter, where you will find our selected hotels. The second city of Ho Chi Minh (formerly known as Saigon) is more westernised, generally busier and so dynamic and exciting, it is a wonderful place to explore.
