EXPLORE BY AREA
The north is cool and green with dense jungles and rice terraces. Hanoi is the sprawling capital which contrasts to the tiny villages hidden up in the hills, close to the Chinese boarder. In fact, whole region was once a part of China which has left its influence on the food.
The historical centre of the country where ancient trading ports and emperors palaces sit amoungst spectacular national parks and sandy beaches.
Vietnamese cuisine varies between the north and south with the changing landscape. Like much of Southeast Asia the aim is to balance spicy, salty, sour and sweet flavours.

Little Amy Tours in Vietnam
I arrived in Hoi An tired and confused. I’d been on the overnight bus from Nha Trang where it had more or less rained non-stop and it didn’t look like I was in for much better luck here. But once I found my way into Ancient Town and dived into the delicious food this region is famous for, the weather didn’t matter.
