With its delicious, affordable street food and natural wonders open to everyone, Vietnam can easily be enjoyed even by travellers on a budget. Still, while one need not spend a fortune to be captivated by this country, it’s also the perfect place to indulge a little. A deeply ingrained local sense of hospitality, an innate flair for design, and decades of carefully managed development have turned luxury here into an art form. Whether you’re seeking Michelin-worthy gastronomic experiences, award-winning golf courses, world-class shopping, five-star resorts, or holistic spa treatments, this a land that both appreciates and excels at the finer things of life.
Vietnam’s superlative hospitality havens take pampering to the next level. Design luminaries including Jean-Michel Gathy and Bill Bensley have lent their signature touches to a dizzying array of accommodations. From slick urban hotels with stylish rooftop bars and of-the-minute amenities ideal for business travellers or a posh city staycation, to top-tier resorts boasting infinity pools, private villas, innovative spas and exceptional dining situated in exotic locales, these spaces redefine what it means to stay in style.
Golf aficionados will find plenty of worthy challenges here. The country’s finest courses embrace the splendour of their natural surrounds and lure pros from around the globe. Visually striking courses such as Bluffs Ho Tram Strip, by Australian legend Greg Norman, Laguna Lang Co, a scenic number by Sir Nick Faldo, and Montgomerie Links, an international-standard masterpiece by Colin Montgomerie, are among the best in the world. Finally, shoppers will find an abundance of boutiques both large and small carrying global luxury brands, as well as exquisite silks and one-of-a-kind crafts from local artisans.
