Vietnam Off The Beaten Path: 160 reviews and 184 photos


Most of Vietnam's 85 million people are concentrated in the flat areas of the Mekong and Red River deltas and the narrow coastal strip. Much of the rest of the country is sparsely-populated, forested upland, including the Central Highlands and the Tonkinese Alps in the north, which include the country's highest peak, the 3,134m-high, Mount Fansipan. These areas are where the Montagnards or hill tribes live.
