Timeless landscapes range from gorgeous coastlines and majestic mountains to lush rice paddies and coffee plantations to bustling megacities and towns. The country’s culture and history are both exotic and compelling. Ancient temples and pagodas rise from the hill tops, while grand state buildings and tree lined boulevards are reminiscent of the French Colonial period.
