The winding road along Vietnam's coastline
connecting the country's important cities and towns has borne witness
to many twists and turns in her recent history. Built in the 18th
century by Vietnamese foot soldiers and mandarins, it was called mandarin
route. From the hectic traffic and fast business pace of Hochiminh
City to pristine beaches in Phan Thiet,
Nha Trang, Danang...and historical sites in Qui Nhon, Hoi An, Hue
and Hanoi, the mandarin route will be with you wherever you go. You
will set foot on a maiden expanse of land between Dong Hoi and Ninh
Binh where you wil find the local people and landscape exotic beyond
your imagination. Sixteen days of travelling along this backbone route
will give you an opportunity to tell your friends that "I have
been there and have learnt about Vietnam".
