Vietnam Tour - "Land of the blue dragon" 

Vietnam - also famously known as the land of the “Blue Dragon” for its geographical shape on the world map - is a land of opportunities. As Vietnam celebrates its 72nd independence today, it is remarkable to note how far the country has progressed over recent years. Moving away from a centrally planned system into a market based economy, Vietnam has advanced into the "lower middle income countries" bracket since 2009. In 2017, the nation is now considered one of the most dynamic emerging markets within Southeast Asia.
