The Undiscovered Coast

How many millions of people have ‘done’ Vietnam? We don’t know, but we guess that their conversations about this country in whatever their native tongue may be will include something along the lines of, “been there, seen it, done it”. The fact that only one in 10 tourists returns pays testament to this. Been there once, most likely loved it, but unlikely to come back. It’s a mark-it-off-the-bucket-list kind of place.


Which is why we’ve put together this story. Not because we want tourists to come back — as much as we would love the benefits it brings to the local economy, that’s not on our agenda. But because we want to show that there is so much more to this country than the standard destinations.


Take what in our opinion are the three most beautiful spots in Vietnam — Con Dao, Phong Nha and Ha Giang. How many people who even live in this country know how stunning these places actually are? Then there is this country’s unrivalled, 3,000km-long coastline. Developed in some spots, untouched elsewhere, how can trips to Mui Ne, Nha Trang, Danang and Halong Bay give you a sense of what
 it’s actually like? They can’t.


Which is why this month we have boldly gone where (almost) no one has gone before. The coast we’ve found is not quite undiscovered. But we’ve searched out some
amazing spots that we’d like to share.


We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
