A trip to Vietnam is rewarding holiday for cultural-seekers. Vietnam has a thousand-year-old civilization and a long history, going through very challenges and from dynasties to colonization. Thus it possesses a unique and colorful culture which is the blend of both original and foreign. If you have a curiosity to travel back in time, wander around the 36 streets of Hanoi Old Quarter or Hoi An Old town to take a glimpse at French-architecture houses mixing with temples and pagodas with Chinese influences. Indulge in numerous cultural heritage sites such as the Temple of Literature or discover ethnic minority groups at the Museum of Ethnology. Vietnam’s distinct culture is portraited through every walk of life, from insanely delicious street food, to the elegant traditional dress; from the old street vendors to people celebrating annual festivals and ceremonies.
