VIETNAM WITH THE LEGACY UNTOLD

Vietnam repeatedly draws curious global nomads to its cities and shores, with its dramatic cliffside views of the Annamese mountains, verdant waterways of the Mekong Delta, and the shimmering serenity of the turquoise waters of Halong Bay.

Tucked away in the winding streets of its Old Quarter, Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi offers a buzzing nightlife scene and street food culture to rival any other. To the East of Hanoi lies Halong Bay, which consists of more than 2,000 limestone isles rising up from crystal clear waters in this tropical paradise lost in time. Charter a private yacht to set sail on your own personal adventure while enjoying deckside tai chi sessions at sunrise and gourmet dinners at sunset.

Dreaming up a custom piece for your wardrobe you just can’t seem to track down? Look no further than the ancient riverside town of Hoi An. Here you will find the finest bespoke tailors in the country with a reputation for lightning speed results (sometimes mere hours!). Once you’ve been fully outfitted you can escape to the countryside to cycle through rice paddy fields or climb the sacred hillsides of the Marble Mountains. In the South, the rising skyline of Ho Chi Minh City, still known to most as Saigon, will undoubtedly entice you to unravel its tangled wartime history, best seen from the back of a vintage Vespa. When it comes time to relax and unwind, the beaches on Vietnam’s 2,000 miles of coastline will rise to the top of any castaway’s list. Some of the most luxurious properties are on the archipelago islands. Many are only an hour’s flight from Ho Chi Minh City, but feel worlds away from civilization.

Vietnam’s enchantment lies not with one single element, but is rather a composite sketch of its natural splendor, fascinating history, and myriad cultural traditions that meld into something that can only be described as a sense of wonderment for even the most seasoned globetrotter. Its allure may seem mysterious, but what’s certain is that the only way to know is to experience it for yourself.

WHEN TO GO

Vietnam is a highly geographically diverse country consisting of many different microclimates. As such, there are places with pleasant weather no matter the time of year, making it a year-round destination. Weather patterns can range from the familiar four seasons in the North to the eternal summer of the South. In the North, the Spring through Summer months of April – July typically bring the best weather. In the Central regions, September through January can experience tropical rain storms or typhoons. In the South, temperatures are warm year round and rainfall generally only intermittent for the late Summer to early Fall months of August – October.

GETTING THERE

The two largest airports in Vietnam are in the capital of Hanoi, and in Ho Chi Minh City. The most common international routes from the East Coast of the United States connect through either Doha, Qatar, or Tokyo, Japan. From the West Coast, many routes fly through Tokyo, as well as Hong Kong.
