About Vietnam
The beauty of Vietnam’s natural setting attracts visitors from all around the world. From the Red River Delta in the north, to the Mekong Delta in the south, Vietnam offers unlimited travel potential. There are beautiful beaches, isolated villages, ancient temples, and soaring mountains cloaked in dense misty forests - not to mention Ho Chi Minh City, the economic centre of Vietnam and one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Yet despite rapidly opening up to the outside world, this dignified country has managed to preserve its rich civilization and highly cultured society.

Westcoast Dental Clinic is conveniently located in the centre of Ho Chi Minh City in District 1 (Saigon), fifteen minutes from the airport and just minutes from a wide range of hotels, restaurants, spa’s, cultural sites and entertainment. There are many beaches at proximity of Ho Chi Minh like Mui Né, Nha Trang and Vung Tàu. There are also many museums, governmental buildings and cultural sites that can be visited during your stay in Ho Chi Minh City.
