Vietnam has become a five-star destination for both tourism and business purposes, and no wonder. Pristine white sand beaches, lovely terraced rice fields in the highlands, world-renowned national parks, including Halong Bay, all contribute to making Vietnam one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
The people are winsome and easy to like, friendly and hardworking. Their hard work has enabled Vietnam to progress dramatically from poverty to prosperity, and on the political world scene as well. An opponent of the United States a half-century ago, Vietnam now welcomes Americans with arms opened wide.
