The New Year holiday season is around the corner. Balancing the frenzy of shopping, company parties, and family time can be daunting, but those who manage to squeeze in time to enjoy some time off—or perhaps, give the gift of getting away—will find affordable rates, seasonal revelry, and beautiful landscapes to cap off another great year.
Vietnam is always on the top-recommended place as it is a rich culture, the beautiful country of lush mountain landscape and sweeping white sands.
