Vietnam has an abundance of sights for the adventurous traveler with some spare time to explore. Not surprisingly, it's all about the water here. There are overnight junk boat trips in Halong Bay, dragon boat tours on the Perfume River, floating markets and even water puppetry. If water just isn't your element, scoot around town in a cyclo (think rickshaw) or take a train through the country. You can even hire a Jeep for a ride through the jungle to see tribal villages. The Vietnamese also celebrate a number of interesting holidays like Tet (the Vietnamese New Year) and the Mid-Autumn Festival. Visitors here have the freedom to go off the beaten path or stay in self-contained tourist areas. There's also the freedom to try, say, bird's nest soup or just go with the pho. No matter what you do, youíre sure to have an adventure and a good time in Vietnam. Highlights: East birds nest soup! And if it doesnít offend your sensibilities, try dog meat which is considered a local delicacy in the Hanoi area.
