An actress has named Vietnam as one of her top holiday destinations.
Tara Fitzgerald told the Daily Telegraph that she found that the country was "really vibrant" when she visited it on holiday with her partner.
During their stay, they visited Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and the island of Phu Quoc, with Ms Fitzgerald particularly recommending a trip to Ho Chi Minh's mausoleum because it is "fascinating".
She added that each location had a different feel, with Ho Chi Minh City described as "incredibly buzzy and energetic", while she commented that Hanoi is "sedate and beautiful".
As well as visiting the mausoleum in Ho Chi Minh City, travellers in Vietnam may also want to seek out some of the locations mentioned by author Graham Greene.
Journalist Jon Gorvett recently noted in an article for CNN Traveller that you can still catch glimpses of the city described by the writer in his book The Quiet American.
