Recommended places to visit in Vietnam
Vietnam has a wealth of attractions from the highlands of the north to the sprawling waterways of the south whether its bustling cities with bundles of history, gorgeous beaches fronting the South China Sea or incredible natural wonders. Here's some of our favourite.
No visit to Vietnam would be complete without a visit to picturesque Halong Bay, considered one of the natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage listed region. A cruise on a traditional Junk boat is the perfect way to explore the many caves and hidden coves with great views of the surrounding dramatic limestone peaks.
With a refreshing old world charm and it’s French colonial history very much evident, Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital, is dotted with scenic lakes and leafy boulevards The charming Old Quarter is not be missed and best explored by cyclo where you can sit back and take in all the sights and sounds, stopping off to sample the local street food or try your hand at bargaining in one of the many shops.
Another of Vietnam’s UNESCO listed gems, picturesque Hoi An in central Vietnam has beautifully preserved architecture, ancient cobbled streets, art stalls & street markets aplenty and fabulous restaurants. It’s also THE place to have literally anything made from suits & handbags to shoes & glasses. A top day trip is a bicycle ride to the quaint farming village of Tra Que on the outskirts of Hoi An.
Officially known as Ho chi Minh City, Saigon is very much a city in transition with a true blend of old-meets-new; with French colonial architecture, impressive sky scrapers, traditional lively markets and boutique designer shops. You’ll also get a fascinating insight into the Vietnam War at Reunification Palace, the Revolutionary & War Remnants Museums.
Rapidly becoming one of northern Vietnam’s most popular destinations, Sapa is a former French hill station and home to local ethnic minority groups such as H’mong and Dzao who maintain a very traditional way of life. It’s a great spot for trekking amongst the cascading paddy fields and there’s plenty of picturesque routes to nearby local villages such as Cat Cat, Red Dhoa and Ta Phin.
With lush rice paddy fields, colourful fruit orchards, enchanting villages and bustling floating markets, the Mekong Delta in south-east Vietnam is one of the world’s greatest river regions. A great way to get around and immerse yourself in the traditional local way of life in the Mekong is aboard a sampan, when you can try your hand at bartering at the floating market in Can Thou.
