Vietnamese Vacation: 3 Easy Paths from Nanning to Vietnam

After months of pounding the Chinese pavement, Southeast Asia is really the perfect getaway. The atmosphere is more tropical and cleaner and the food palate is new and interesting (pass the pho please!). Best of all everything from food to shopping to taxis is much cheaper. This is most likely why millions of Chinese citizens flock to multiple Southeast Asian destinations every year. Vietnam, with its blue and green mountains and rivers and exciting bustling cities has become one of the most popular tourist destinations for Chinese travellers.
