The north Vietnam is big, mountainous and near the sea as well. The topography favours the north Vietnam with incredibly beautiful scenery. The north Vietnam is the gateway to another world of luscious landscapes and mysterious minority cultures. This is the reason to join north Vietnam tour. Limited offers for Vietnam tours.
