With breathtaking beauty and enduring traditions, Vietnam proves uniquely rewarding for the thoughtful traveler. But with more than 3,000 km of coastline, a visit to Vietnam also offers a fantastic opportunity to sample some of the freshest, most delicious seafood in the world. About half of the protein in a typical Vietnamese diet comes from seafood, with many families finding the catch of the day in the rice fields along the Mekong Delta. Visitors to Vietnam will find their shrimp, crab, squid, or carp fried, curried, stuffed, or steamed in lemongrass, garlic, or ginger. Hungry yet? Taste for yourself on one of our many journeys to Vietnam.
