OVERVIEW

Much more than about the war which is beyond over, Vietnam is now amongst the fastest growing economies in Asia. But, growth apart, it truly is a throbbing world with plenty to offer in the form of history, art, culture, nature, cuisine and people. And to do justice to it as a traveller, it demands time, for much as there is to see, there is that much more to absorb and experience. There are 3 parts – the North – home to the surreal Halong Bay, the picture perfect paddy fields of Sapa and the capital Hanoi with its resplendent central lake, bia hois ( kerbside draught beer joints) & art galleries; the Central with Danang at the crossroads of a magnificent coastline and routes to cultural landmarks in Hue and Hoi An; the South with the bustle of Ho Chi Minh City and the riverine lifestyles in the Mekong Delta. Each of these parts by itself makes for atleast a week long holiday and any less would be a compromise. This is true for a golf holiday in Vietnam too. Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh and now Danang are all surrounded with some top quality golf courses, each making for a high quality golf vacation.
