Event description

Description

An internationally acclaimed cuisine; lush, Eden-like landscapes peppered with temples and hillside villages; tranquil turquoise bays and paradise islands, and booming cities that thunder along to an entirely different rhythm — Vietnam sparkles in the minds of travellers. This Southeast Asian country, steeped in complex history and timeless traditions, has long featured on far-flung itineraries, and with a case as compelling as Vietnam's, it's plain to see why. But this is a country that can with its dazzle with its variety. So what's the best way to really discover it? Our panel of experts will have all the answers — from the best time to visit to a first-timer's must-sees, and from where to get the best street food to seeking out those hidden gems worth going off-piste for.

Don’t rush off, join our after-work get togethers.

Top tips, advice, technical know-how, photo ideas… and a glass of something cheery. Our series of informal chats are tailored to fit in with your busy lives. Travel Geeks is just an hour long, and offers you the chance to hear from our experts, share a drink and join in the lively debate.
