The Wow: Quaint villages and shacks line pristine beaches. The tallest structure is a flag pole. One charming beach-side restaurant has no walls or floor: just a few poles and a thatched roof where you can sip Saigon beers and eat fresh seafood for well under $10.

Why Now? Encouraged by generous government tax breaks and promises of major infrastructure investment, property and tourism developers are beating a path to this potential tourist El Dorado.

    I wish there was an easier way to see the list than clicking on page numbers on bottom of the page.
    I gave up after no6. :-( A ‘next’ button would be so nice. Or scrolling down.

  • Hey Tasha!
    Totally hear you on the next button – we’re filing an enhancement on the pages and hope to have it fixed soon. Thank you so much for your feedback!

    Great special report, lot of good travel ideas. Also a bit sad reading, as it is usually we humans that are changing things… often irrevocably.

    A world without the mountain gorillas is unbearable thought, and there are too many fragile ecosystems already under threat. Your report highlights what a beautiful planet we live on, but also how badly we are treating it.
