Vietnam’s beaches are surprisingly overlooked. The coastline sweeps in an S-shape from China in the north to Cambodia in the south. It passes through three different micro-climates along the way, which means dry, sunny weather is always to be had on either the central or south coast, whatever time of year you travel. It also means that whatever tour of Vietnam you choose, you can combine in beach time easily enough. To enjoy the whole of Vietnam beach holidays, here, let’s travel with Go Vietnam Tours!
