Vietnam is now a land of contrasts.  The old traditional way of life  is now side by side with the emerging modern country.

Mountains reach to the sea, rice paddies and fishing villages, hovels on the outskirts of modern cities, hill tribe peoples and youth with ipods and motorcycles.

It is never boring and the people whether old or young, country or city, rich or destitute –  are charming in their hospitality and warmth.
