Vietnam Long recognised as one of Asia’s most dynamic countries, Vietnam is a kaleidoscope of colour and culture, blending French influence with traditional Asian philosophy and style. Exotic and utterly compelling, Vietnam is a journey not to be rushed. A tale to tell From the bustling cities of Ho Chi Minh City and the capital Hanoi, to quaint riverside villages in the Mekong Delta and the towering rice paddies of Sapa, Vietnam’s compelling history is on display everywhere, from the ancient pagodas of imperial dynasties to more recent relics of Vietnam’s complex past. With a focus set firmly on the future, but a commitment to preserving its heritage, Vietnam successfully blends old with new to create a destination like no other. Arguably one of the biggest impacts on modern-day Vietnam is its most recent conflict. In Ho Chi Minh City travel to one of the many entrances that signal the vast network of the Cu Chi tunnels hidden below the city, before reflecting on Vietnam’s history during a visit to the nearby War Memorial and Reunification Palace.

D

Tip of your tongue Nowhere is Vietnam’s intriguing mix of culture more evident than in its food. From French-inspired pastries to the ever-popular Bánh mì, deliciously fresh Goi cuon and of course, Vietnam’s national dish – Pho – you could be forgiven for spending all your time eating. Learn how to make your favourite dishes at home during immersive cooking experiences. Visit local markets to find the freshest ingredients before enjoying cooking classes at Red Bridge Cooking School in Hoi An and Madame Anh Tuyet in Hanoi, where you may learn to make the ever-popular bun cha, a regional specialty of the capital. Take to the streets on a Vespa foodie tour of Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, and explore their energetic nightlife and delicious street food – as a local would.

The Bay of Dragons Myths and mysteries Vietnam abound over the formation of the bay. The literal translation of Ha Long means ‘descending dragon’ and a favourite local myth has it that the bay and its magnificent landmarks were formed by the thrashings of an enormous dragon that was trying to reach the ocean. Another popular tale believes the islets and karsts were created out of gems cast down from dragons defending the land in the time of the Jade Emperor. Whatever the truth about how it came to be, Halong Bay is a truly remarkable destination.

Often overlooked in favour of its better-known neighbours, landlocked Laos is one of Asia’s best kept secrets. With a rich history stretching back thousands of years, the country offers plenty for travellers keen to slow things down and see a more relaxed side of South East Asia. One perfect package Featuring exquisite temples amid a densely forested, yet breathtaking landscape, Laos brings together the best of the region in one perfect package. An ideal place to unwind from the stresses of modern life, this land of mountain, mists and untamed natural beauty tempts with unrivalled peace and serenity. Go with the flow and focus on the now – enjoy a massage, or simply spend time wandering the local markets, meeting residents and sharing stories, for while its temples may be stunning, it’s the genuine warmth and hospitality of the local people that will capture your heart.

Spiritual centre A deeply spiritual nation, Buddhism permeates every facet of life. Embrace local customs during a traditional Baci ceremony, and join with local residents to give morning alms to passing monks in Luang Prabang.

Myanmar Setting foot in Myanmar is akin to stepping back in time. A land largely untouched, its timeless beauty will astound you. The beating heart of the country is its faith, and there is no better way to understand Myanmar than to spend time tapping into your spiritual side. The country offers one of the world’s most remarkable collections of temples – the wide plains of Bagan once featured more than 4,000 of which an incredible 2,230 still remain – while the ancient pagodas and monasteries of Sagaing will leave you spellbound.

Embrace local traditions In Sagaing, give alms and participate in a blessing of food with novice monks and nuns at their monastery, while at Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon partake in a traditional oil lamp lighting ceremony. You can even leave your own mark on Myanmar’s culture and learn how to produce gold leaf at a local workshop before male guests can place it on an iconic Buddha statue. Meet the locals One of the most charming aspects of Myanmar is its people, who are all too happy to share their beautiful culture with guests. While visits to temples are a given, it is the towns and villages where there are opportunities to interact with local families that will remain in your memory long after the holiday has come to an end. Support local communities and hitch a ride on a trishaw or horse-drawn cart, or enjoy a home-cooked meal with an Intha family while at Inle Lake. In Bagan, rise early to give alms with local residents, or interact with the local school children and nuns in Sagaing. You may even be lucky enough to spot an Irrawaddy dolphin, up river from Mingun. Watch a tour Myanmar with David Whitehill @ scenic.ca
