Beyond the Bánh Mì: Explaining Vietnam’s Awesomeness

I have San Francisco food tour guides to thank for my love of Vietnamese food, but while spending long lunches savoring addictive bánh mì (baguette sandwiches stuffed perfectly with the likes of cold cuts, cilantro, cucumber, and spicy sauces) is one excellent way to familiarize oneself with the fascinating asian culture, ultimately it’s best to travel to Vietnam to experience the country’s splendor first-hand. Sometimes, surprisingly enough, sandwiches just don’t cut it.

The following short video details exactly what makes Vietnam so intriguing. From the lush green countryside and beautiful corn fields, to the quaint villages and bubbly communities, Vietnam, the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia, has an almost overwhelming amount of splendor to showcase. Folks, we should all be turning green with envy of tour guides in Vietnam; boy are they living the life.

Adventure guides in Vietnam are prepped to show you the striking likes of the Mekong Delta (along which you can pay memorable trips to coconut farms and sugar plantations) and Monkey Mountain, a mountain that juts out into the sea like a giant pair of Mickey Mouse ears, and sightseeing guides will show you charming pagodas galore. But the fun in Vietnam doesn’t stop there: local food guides will take you to mouthwatering hole-in-the-wall restaurants, walking tour guides will lead you to dream-like lakes, and biking tour guides will take you to seaside villages where you can learn to catch fish and crab like a skilled local.

With all this to look forward to, here’s a little more eye-candy. Watch, and then book your very own tour guide to show you Vietnam’s many marvels.
