Vietnam Airlines has just agreed to purchase four Airbus 380’s and two Airbus 350’s. The planes will supplement the airline’s currently long-range fleet of 10 Boeing 777’s, which are being used primarily for service between Vietnam and Europe.
The reason I found this news especially noteworthy, is that the company plans on flying the new 500+ seat A-380’s and 300+ seat A-350’s between the United States and Vietnam!
Vietnam and Hawaii have a number of similarities. Sun, sand, sea and surf among them. Water sports and marine life are two additional Vietnam features. Vietnam has a long coastline, with its best year round beaches primarily in the southern half. There are also many tropical islands. Among its most famous beaches are:
- Nha Trang: The vietnamese Riviera.
- Mui Ne Beach, Phan Thiet. Beautiful white sand beach.
- Phu Quoc Island. Vietnam’s largest island and national park.
In addition to its beaches, Vietnam is said to offer fascinating cities that combine classic with modern, otherwise incredible scenery, a rich history, culture and wonderful food.
While we’re dyed in the woof Hawaii-files, Beat of Hawaii plans to visit Vietnam in the near future and report on it personally. Do you plan to visit Vietnam?
