Ho Chi Minh City – a favorite for both new and regular travelers
When it comes to the top must-visit cities in Vietnam for vacationers, Ho Chi Minh City is credited with being highly favorite and satisfying for both new and regular travelers on their holidays to this colorful country in Indochina, of course, for good reasons. As generations of travelers have discovered on their tours in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City seems to have something for everyone. District 1 is the place to enjoy life, visit fine art museums, and stroll along charming wide, tree-lined boulevards. Many nature lovers and culture hounds prefer the Mekong Delta for its natural environment while Vietnamese history buffs are interested in Cu Chi Tunnels – a huge system of underground tunnels built in the American War.
Pu Luong Nature Reserve – A hidden gem of Northern Vietnam
For most people on their holiday in Vietnam, it is the unique characters of a region that will define their journey. Some holiday-makers stay long in the busy bigger cities, but others like these fine rural areas to leave the mix. And Pu Luong is one of them. Like the scene of a fairy tale, Pu Luong – 106 miles from Hanoi – is a lush landscape of mountains, thousand-year-old primitive forests, and magnificent, picturesque terraced fields.
Da Nang – The most worth – living city in Vietnam
Da Nang is one of the best destinations to visit in Vietnam, so it is no surprise it appears on this list. The heart and soul of Central Vietnam attract travelers year-round with iconic attractions like Ba Na Hill, Marble Mountains, Son Tra Peninsula, unparalleled food scenes, historic locations, and incredible architectural monuments. Keep in mind, in summer months, Da Nang is often flooded with domestic travelers and the room rates can be pricey. If you are looking for a better deal, winter or early spring should be a better time to go.
Hoi An – An ancient beauty of Vietnam
Quaint, charming Hoi An is the 16th-century town in Central Vietnam known for its mustard-yellow merchants’ houses, a series of old-architecture lanes, lovely coffee shops, and lively wet markets. Life moves at a more leisurely pace here than in other cities in Vietnam, making it one of the most splendid places for foreign travelers to get lost in the scenic streets and get to know more about Central Vietnam locals as well as their life and culture. Make sure to add Hoi An Ancient Town – one of the city’s top attractions – to your Vietnam private travel package.
Dalat – A flower town of romance
Dalat became popular with the French as a summer resort in the early 20th century. Nowadays, it is a bustling summer vacation destination where people come to escape the busy city life. In contrast to the tropical heat of Ho Chi Minh City and Southern Vietnam, the City of Flowers enjoys the spring-like climate all year round. The air is fragrant with the aroma of rose, hydrangea, olden everlasting flowers, azalea flowers, and orchids that grow in abundance. It is this dreamy landscape created by the surrounding farms cultivating flowers, strawberries, vegetables, and coffee, in place of rice that all painters find inspiration to create vibrant works of art.
When it comes to variety, Vietnam is difficult to beat: Northern Vietnam is completely different from Southern region, the cities, towns, villages, and the mountainous areas with their unique characters are, well, just too gorgeous to miss.
