Vietnam breathes life, excitement and culture from every pore of its being. A history enveloped by war, up surging and rebellion, Vietnam does things its own way. It is a loud explosion to the culturally refined countries in Southeast Asia and promises a remarkable experience with its Chinese and French influence, wild and wonderful culinary delights, bustling cities and the unperturbed attitude from Vietnamese locals.
The life and lights of Vietnam can place well-meaning travellers at risk of exposure to diseases and illness. Consult a travel doctor prior to departure to assess your risks in relation to your medical history and travel plans as diseases like Japanese encephalitis may be of risk depending on the time of year and places you travel to within Vietnam.
