I recently had the opportunity to travel to Vietnam for the first time and wanted to share some images from my travels to one of its major cities, Ho Chi Minh City.
Vietnam is a fascinating country but it is one that conjures up many preconceived images and emotions for many, mainly due to the conflict which gripped the country in the mid to late 20th Century.
But Vietnam is changing. Fast.
Here are 12 images that might give you a fresh perspective on this exciting, new south-east Asian country which is rushing headlong into the 21st Century.
