Vietnam by Bike
Cycling is the classic way to experience the diversity of Vietnam. This journey from Hanoi through the central highlands and along the coast to Ho Chi Minh City is one of our most popular tours
One of Hanoi’s most overlooked museums is also one of its best. Recently reopened after a four-year renovation, the collection showcases women’s role in Vietnamese society and culture. Superbly laid out and labelled in English and French, it’s the memories of the wartime contribution by individual heroic women that are most poignant. There is a stunning collection of propaganda posters, as well as costumes, tribal basketware and fabric motifs from Vietnam’s ethnic minority groups. Regular special exhibitions are held on topics as diverse as human trafficking, street vendors and traditional medicine. Check the website for what’s on.
