Welcome to What About Vietnam - WAV


A Vietnam Travel Podcast with Kerry Newsome.


If you have ever thought about Vietnam as a holiday destination, but unsure, well, this might be the “eye-opener” you need, to help you decide you must go.

What started out as a Podcast in 2020, has evolved into a library of consumable information about Vietnam and the many things to do, see and experience. I fell in love with Vietnam many years ago and hope you will too!

As a regular traveler to Vietnam and serial travel industry professional, I am delighted to host the podcast that began it all and share with you the most up-to-date information about Vietnam that I can gather.

Now in its 3rd year, 73 Episodes, across 4 series, the program is listened to in 70 countries. It is recommended by the Lonely Planet Guide of 2022/23 and is becoming the most respected English voice talking about Vietnam travel on the planet.
