With jaw-dropping natural marvels and fantastically preserved ancient relics, Vietnam is home to eight incredible UNESCO World Heritage status sites. From abandoned imperial cities to present day towns, unique landscapes to underground wonders, the heritage sites of Vietnam are truly something to behold.
