    Hoi An

    Historic and postcardesque, Hoi An is a pretty little UNESCO protected city full of charm (and hustlers). There’s a definite excitement in the air surrounding Hoi An.

  • Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba Island

    Cat Ba Island

    The crown jewels of Vietnam, and for the right reasons, Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba Island are incredible places to visit.
