Once again Boardseeker is joined by Katya Chistokhvalova for another slightly alternative travel feature. Instead of Brazil, this time Katya takes us on a trip to Vietnam and some secret spots around there. Read on to discover why Vietnam is worth considering.

Vietnam is a wonderful country with amazing beaches, beautiful nature and exotic customs. The country opened its doors to tourists relatively recent (1997) and is a popular destination for backpackers and beach lovers. Some of whom are windsurfers. This is not surprising as stable winds blow along the coast from November until middle of March.

This is my third winter in Vietnam. Besides the ideal wind conditions, other benefits of the country are the low prices and the abundance of beautiful places to visit.
