In 2014 we visited Vietnam, beginning in Hanoi, to Halong Bay, to the imperial city of Hue, then the ancient port city of Hoi An before returning to Hanoi. From Hanoi we did a day trip to Tam Coc with it's karst mountains in the rice paddies.

Halong Bay

Halong Bay is a world heritage site because of the wonderful Karst Mountains rising out of the bay.

Imperial City of Hue

Hue is the imperial city and exclusive residence of the emperors like the forbidden city in Bejing. Unfortunately it was heavily bombed by the americans and badly damaged.  The surrounding countryside is home to a number of burial grounds of the emperors.

Hoi An

Hoi An is an ancient port city that is little changed with time and is now a World Heritage Site. It was very relaxed with the historical atmosphere and great beaches.


Hanoi is a vibrant city with intense traffic and busy streets. Hoan Kiem Lake is the center of the old district try to stay near by. From Hanoi we did a day trip to Tam Coc an area of Karst Mountains in rice fields.
