Travel is not just about visiting . It's about experiencing. It's not enough to tick off the sights and charge down the coast between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). Try to get beneath the skin of the country: this can take many shapes or forms. It m ight be a culinary adventure or a walk on the wild side. It could be a
cultural encounter or perhaps spiritual enlightenment. It could be you.
