The Breathtaking Splendour of Vietnam in Pictures

DAYLIGHT ROBBERY. This is how Vietnam steals our hearts over and over again.

Sobering past of war and unrest aside, Vietnam has grown into a beautiful nation, cultivating friendly and warm people in the process. The kind of resilience and silent determination that the country possesses is humbling and inspirational, to say the least.

At every turn, Vietnam seems to be like a picture caught on film, with a slight sepia tone to it. Although everything seems a little stuck in time, it has an unexplainable charm to it. The nation, even in its developing state, still somehow manages to steal our heart with its quaint streets and peaceful still waters.

When we least expect it, Vietnam steals hearts with…
