There are few countries I’ve loved as much as Vietnam.
Hot bowls of noodles eaten on rickety plastic stools. Whole gardens of cut flowers nearly tip the bicycles that carry them. Congested streets that you can cross if you just commit to walking steadily. Relearning the stories that US history books never told. Limestone karsts in legendary bays. UNESCO towns. Motorbike adventures. Hiking in the hills.
This is Vietnam.
