Vietnamese Market


From bustling cities to timeless villages, a Vietnam tour is essential to any traveler curious about delectable cuisine and a unique culture. With its early settlement dating back more than 4,000 years, Vietnam reflects the influences of a succession of empires and would-be conquerors in its architecture, religion, and traditions. Look for stunning design intricacies in the temples, shrines, and monuments of places like the ruins at My Son, the historic center of Hoi An, and the “forbidden city” of Hue. There will be plenty of opportunities to savor local treats with cooking demonstrations and visits to traditional food stalls. And no Vietnam cruise is complete without a visit to the colorful markets, overflowing with exotic produce, handicrafts, and luxurious silks.
