Perhaps there is no better time to visit Vietnam than now – where the innocence of its people remains unspoiled by modernization, where raw beauty can still be witnessed steps away from luxury comfort, where the desire to strive is felt in every pulse of life, in each motion of contact, where your experience of Vietnam is not what is seen by the eye, but how it is felt by the heart, where luxury travel can be defined at its highest standard.
