As Western countries try to raise their colonial power, France, Spain and Britain conquered countries on different continents. Up until the First Indochina War in the mid-20th century, from the late 19th century, Vietnam was governed by French rule.

At certain terms tensions were strong, but during this period a unique mixture of Eastern and Western architecture appeared, and one of the most outstanding examples of this is the Vua Meo villa constructed by the French for the head of the Hmong people. Enjoyable enough, it was once called “The Opium Palace”, because one of its cellars feature huge amounts of opium, and the walls were adorned with poppy-seed and flower decorations.

All beautiful beaches in Vietnam are one of the most hidden beauties of this country. Although not having white sand and clear water beaches like Thailand and Cambodia, Vietnam features beaches that rival these beloved tourist attractions. While several popular beach towns in Vietnam including Nha Trang and Mui Ne attract a lot of attention, more tranquil, less-visited beaches like Doc Let are the unsung treasures. Con Dao and Phu Quoc are also ranked as the most spectacular islands in South East Asia, and travelers should be hurried up right now, before these isolated, idyllic spots experience the similar destruction like many over-visited beaches in Thailand and Cambodia.

Depending on whether you want something more isolated, where you can be alone with a significant other, or want to be in a fresh urban environment while still having the ability to go down to the beautiful beaches for a quick swim, you can decide where to go by yourself.
