The classic route from North to South
Many travelers leave the former capital of Hanoi, where French cafes alongside traditional stores. From Hanoi they go to Ha Long Bay, one of the wonders of the world and the hill station of Sapa where the Hmong in colorful dress working the rice terraces.

In central Vietnam, the imperial capital of Hue provides a glimpse of yesteryear with the visit of the imperial city and many tombs. The very popular Hoi An coast of Danang is a pleasant little town with old houses, a gorgeous beach nearby and a beautiful countryside.

Hue: A little further south, the region also offers many places untouched by mass tourism. Scenery was breathtaking and ethnic minorities are the welcoming. A tour guide is advisable to visit these places and most remote people only speak Vietnamese.

Off the beaten track
It is entirely possible to leave the beaten track in Vietnam. The country is safe, some problems such as touts and street vendors rather arrive in tourist areas.

Go and meet the Vietnamese is not necessarily obvious because of the language barrier. But a meeting in a café sipping an iced coffee, it leaves memories. To do this, no secret, we must have the courage to open up and move away a bit of the tourist areas.

That said a good local guide can be very valuable. It will take you to the right places and introduce you to the right people.

For my part that interests me the most when I travel is to meet locals. See how they live, their passions, discover their sense of humor ...

Some tips from personal experience

Do not generalize
Some Vietnamese are tough but the majority are polite and caring. Do not generalize if you come across a foul-mouthed..
