An Adventure of the Senses in Vietnam

Today’s article on Vietnam is brought to you by, and they want the agent to know all about the possibilities that Vietnam holds.

  • Ho Chi Minh City, otherwise known as Saigon, a dynamic city where modern high-rise buildings coexist with ancient temples. Markets flourish with their array of produce and locally made goods. Relics of previous colonization stand as historical markers in the city. Examples of the French Colonial architecture include: The People’s Committee Hall, The Municipal Theater of Ho Chi Minh, and the Saigon Post Office. For those interested the Vietnam War, the War Remnants Museum showcases images and equipment from the war in a way that does not shy away from the truth. The Jade Emperor Pagoda and Giac Lam Pagoda are intricate works of art dedicated to the heavens; these are worth a visit to take in the history and craftsmanship of the Vietnamese people.



  • The largest city in Vietnam is Hanoi. A busy city buzzing with scooters and groups of pedestrians, Hanoi has many temples and museums for the traveler to check out. The history of this city can be taken in at the Ho Chi Minh Museum, where photos and letter of old are on display. The National Museum of Vietnamese History shows a different side, with antiques and replicas of items dating back 1,000 years. For a living view of history, the Temple of Literature is a great place to wander around and see Vietnam’s first university (built in 1070). The Ngoc Son Temple sits on a small island in Hoan Kiem Lake and can be reached by a red bridge extending out into the lake. This northern city awaits the senses of travelers looking to feel the heart of Vietnam.



  • And last, but most definitively not least, the food of Vietnam. With common ingredients such as fish sauce, shrimp paste, soy sauce, bean sauce, rice, fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables – it has gotten some of its modern influence from French Cuisine. Also, due to occupation from the Chinese, some elements were introduced. Though, much of it remains traditional with simple twists from Chinse occupation and French Colonialism. The tastes, colors, and smells of Vietnamese cuisine are balanced in such a way that many meals transcend simply eating food – becoming more of an experience. From noodle soups (some spicy, some hardy) to bánh (dumplings and pastries) to wraps, the food of Vietnam has spread across the world for good reason. But it’s best to taste it at its source.



Vietnam is otherworldly, a place where travelers can see and feel a world they haven’t even begun to imagine. Whether it be remote fields with tiers cut into hills and mountains, navigating the slow-moving waters, or to sit down for food that will leave the traveler satisfied – is ready to show the best of Vietnam.
