Vietnam is the new international hot spot. Picture Bali 20 years ago, the prices and the people. On my recent trip to Vietnam, I got to travel to 5 pretty amazing places. And I think I chose correctly. Take a look!
1. Halong Bay
Most tourists choose a Halong Bay cruise to enjoy moving through the islands at ease. A two-night cruise can have you kayaking the shores of its many islands, cycling the island hills and touring the old farming villages.
A great way to experience the city is on foot or with the locals on the back of a scooter. Even better, why not experience the food of Hanoi on the back of a scooter? We had so much fun on this tour, ask for Mango, she was hilarious.
And if you don’t try any food in Vietnam, but one? Make it the egg coffee. Thick, sweet, delicious.
3. Hoi An
My favorite part of Vietnam. Once one of South-East Asia’s major trading ports, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a feast for the eyes with its grand architecture of ancient Chinese temples and teetering Japanese merchant houses.
This town’s food is also very different to Hanoi and worth doing another food tour. The restaurants on the water serving skewers of meat in lettuce leaves were divine and so cheap!
Tip: Make sure you take in a Lune Production while in town for a good introduction to Vietnamese culture.
4. Marble Mountains
The Marble Mountains are a cluster of five hills made from limestone and marble. You can take a lift or walk up the stairs to discover multiple caves and temples. It’s a beautiful find and a great day trip from Hoi An.
5. Ba Na Hills
Want a bit of Europe in your trip? It’s not too late. After a breath-taking ride on the world’s highest cable car, over the Toc Tie Waterfall, you’ll find yourselves on top of a mountain in a small provincial French village.
This hill resort was transformed by French colonists in 1919, with a square, church, hotels, and views to die for. Another great day trip from Hoi An.
Finding your way around Vietnam is fairly easy.
