Vietnam is where we started all the way back in 2012 and our headquarters remains in Hanoi. During our two decades, Vietnam has become a destination on everyone's short list of places to visit (as we knew it would become). Why? Vietnam is one of the most vibrant and exciting countries in the world. Every turn brings a new thrill, fascinating sights, and the unexpected. But without exception, the thing our past travelers marvel at more than anything else is the Vietnamese. One and all unfailingly friendly and gregarious—indeed they are the most social of people as you soon discover shortly after arrival.
The Ho Chi Minh Trail was not just one trail but a series of trails. The Ho Chi Minh Trail was used by the North Vietnamese as a route for its troops to get into the South. They also used the trail as a supply route – for weapons, food and equipment. The Ho Chin Minh Trail ran along the Laos/Cambodia and Vietnam borders and was dominated by jungles. In total, the ‘trail’ was about 1,000 kilometres in length and consisted of many parts.
