More peaceful and traditional than Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi capital becomes a wonderful spot for travelers to go for a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake or enjoy a cool Trang Tien ice cream. The capital city appeals to you from the first sight by its romantic and poetic vibe. Spend time visiting the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, the Temple of Literature, Hanoi’s Old Quarter and the Ethnology Museum. Don’t forget to sample some unique and flavorful cuisine here, such as authentic Pho Hanoi, crispy rice-flour crepe, baguette and so on. Further, it seems a pity to ignore “egg coffee” – one of the world’s best drinks.

Halong Bay

Recognized as an important UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay is listed as one of the top tourist attractions in Vietnam. What makes the bay imposing and gorgeous is thousands of different islands. Each island is topped with luxuriant jungle vegetation that creates an eye-catching seascape of limestone pillars. Most visitors fall in love with taking a cruise on a traditional wooden boat to marvel at the Legendary Halong bay with many spectacular places, such as enormous caves, limestone, floating village and so on. For a bit adventurous trip, you may consider taking a kayak among lots of the karst outcrops or taking a cruise around lots of the jungle-covered islands. After all, it is an experience of a lifetime for sure.

Hoi An

Another breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage site that gets much attention from both local and foreign tourists is Hoi An ancient town. About 30 kilometers from Danang City, the town wins an award for its well-preserved architectural heritage as well as old time atmosphere of an ancient village in the past. Wandering around and having yourself immersed in winding lanes of the atmospheric Old Town is one of the greatest ways to admire the combination of Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese culture and architecture. Over centuries, Hoi An has been still respectful of its traditions, beliefs, folk festivals, and sophisticated culinary art. Remember to savor one of its distinctive specialties, called Cao Lau.
