As a child growing up in the midst of heightening war between America and Vietnam, I found myself dreaming about visiting Vietnam to know more about their suffering from that unpopular war. On top of that Vietnam’s dramatic landscapes, fascinating history, great food, and beautiful beaches played a significant role in positioning itself to the top of my dream destinations.
