Located in the South Holland province, Rotterdam is one of the Netherlands' most lively cities, as well as one of the largest trading ports in the world.
Step off the beaten path and head to Efteling and Erasmus Bridge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rotterdam: UNESCO World Heritage Kinderdijk (in Kinderdijk) and The Hague (Drievliet & Madurodam). There's still lots to do: stroll through Rotterdam Zoo, make a trip to Rotterdam Centraal Station, view the masterpieces at The Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery, and get engrossed in the history at Panorama Mesdag.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Rotterdam is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train.
