Other places to visit while in this beautiful country can include Hanoi, which retains some of the French food culture where you will find some great patisseries producing croissants. Have a pint of Vietnam’s most popular brew, bia hoi and stopover in one of the eccentric fairytale rooms of the Crazy House.
Vietnam welcomed some 10.4 million foreign visitors in the first eight months of 2018, a 22.8% increase from the same period last year, the General Statistics Office (GSO) has announced.
