Let Us Plan Your Travel to Vietnam
One of the most beautiful countries in Southeast Asia, Vietnam is an enticing combination of exotic culture and stunning landscapes with everything from pristine tropical beaches and verdant rice fields to bustling cities with ancient landmarks and colonial buildings. Discover Buddhist shrines next to soaring skyscrapers, experience centuries-old ceremonies and vibrant festivals. Outdoor adventurers will be in their element with the wide array of national parks with lush forests for hiking while crystal-clear seas providing some of the world’s best snorkeling, diving and a wealth of other water sports.
The Mekong River, which flows into the South China Sea at the Mekong Delta just south of Ho Chi Minh City is home to over a thousand animal species as a biological treasure trove. Some of the world’s most endangered animals can be found in the Greater Mekong region, including the Asian elephant, Indochinese tiger, the Irrawaddy dolphin and Mekong giant catfish. It’s rich in endemic species too, including one of the rarest animals on the planet, the saola, often referred to as the Asian unicorn.
If you’re looking for human interaction and the chance to delve into local culture, there’s lots to enjoy too. Take a boat to explore the floating markets, or head to one of the traditional villages like Cat Cat ethnic village home to ethnic groups like the Black H’Mong. They preserve many traditional crafts, such as weaving, planting cotton and gold and silver jewelry making while still retaining many unique customs that have been lost to time in most places.

Where to visit in Vietnam
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Vietnam.
One of Vietnam’s top destinations, Hanoi is different than other Asian capitals with a collage of cultural influences from the Chinese and French, while still retaining local Vietnamese ways. Its Southeast Asia’s only city with an embalmed leader on display – Ho Chi Men’s body is preserved in a mausoleum. Hanoi’s impeccably preserved Old Quarter is a labyrinth of more than a thousand-year-old streets tucked between the Red River, Hoan Kiem Lake and the few walls of the citadel that remain. Colonial architecture sits alongside modern developments, while picturesque parks and over 600 pagodas and temples, add to its appeal.
One of the most enchanting places in Vietnam, Halong Bay offers the chance to take in a collection of some 1,600 islands and islets that form a stunning seascape of limestone pillars. Most are uninhabited and home to many rare plants that aren’t found anywhere else on Earth. A cruise along these emerald-hued waters, one of the world’s seven wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an experience of a lifetime, bringing the chance to swim, snorkel, or paddle a kayak to explore fascinating caves with stalactites and stalagmites.
Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City offers a blend of modern and historic attractions. Also known as Saigon, it’s a dynamic metropolis of skyscrapers juxtaposed with traditional markets and ancient temples. Shopping enthusiasts will find practically an endless number of options, while foodies will delight in sampling the maze of outstanding eateries. History overs can visit the impressive collection of artifacts at the HCMC Museum and the 19th-century Notre Dame Cathedral. Travelers of all types shouldn’t miss the Saigon Skydeck for the best city view and hopping on the back of a scooter to explore less-visited neighborhoods is really a must too.
The main port from the 15th to 19th centuries, Hoi An is Vietnam’s most atmospheric city, with hundreds of buildings designated historic landmarks. A national heritage zone, no motorized vehicles are allowed in its center, making it enjoyable to stroll the cobbled streets lined with charming shops and cafes, lit with lanterns and jam-packed with history. You’ll be able marvel at centuries-old temples while enjoying musicians and other performers, and take advantage of the hundreds of tailor shops, with some of the best tailors in the country here who can create almost anything you’d like in no time, and at bargain prices.
Set along the banks of the Perfume River in Central Vietnam, Hue is one of the country’s most historic towns, as the former imperial capital of the Nguyen dynasty. It blends old and new with chic modern hotels soaring over crumbling 19th-century citadel wells, with majestic palaces, temples and gates. There’s also an active Buddhist monastery, built in 1601, and just outside the city are a number of Nguyen Emperor tombs, including Minh Mang Tomb, the final resting place of one of the Nguyen Dynasty’s staunchest Confucians.
A coastal resort town, Nha Trang offers an idyllic beach escape with a laid-back atmosphere perfect for lazy days on soft white sands, sipping cocktails under the shade of an umbrella, with its main beach a long, curving stretch backed by a promenade with mouthwatering seafood eateries. Just offshore, the crystal-clear turquoise sea offers outstanding swimming and snorkeling with rich coral reefs. To add to the relaxation factor, this is a fabulous wellness destination with blissful spas for indulging in everything from massage therapies to mud baths.
Still largely undeveloped, Phu Quoc offers a peaceful beach escape for enjoying white sandy beaches and a tropical ambiance, along with wide swaths of dense jungle to explore. It’s the kind of destination where you can enjoy doing nothing but relax and gaze out at the scenery. Or spend the day swimming in seductive clear blue waters, dive the reefs, embark on a kayaking excursion, feast on fresh-caught seafood and hire a motorbike to explore the backroads. Guided tours are available to visit pepper farms and factories that process anchovies for Vietnam’s famous fish sauce too.

This network of tunnels provides a sobering yet fascinating look at history, located near Ho Chi Minh City, initially dug in 1948 to assist the locals in their battle for independence against the French.

Search for Vietnam’s Best Pho in Hanoi
Pho is a Vietnamese staple, a simple but tasty dish made of rice noodles, boiled beef, clear stock, and green onions or herbs. It served everywhere from fine dining restaurants to street stalls, but some of the best can be found in Hanoi, the so-called pho capital. Every eatery has its own version, making it fun to search out your favorite.
Understand Vietnam’s Past in Ho Chi Min City
There are reminders of bloody conflicts like the Vietnam War throughout the nation, but perhaps even more so in Ho Chi Minh City, through institutions like the War Remnants Museum. It features everything from first-person accounts by veterans to bomb remnants and a bloodied guillotine. Ho Chi Minh City Museum, housed inside Gia Long Palace, explains it through memorabilia, artifacts, and photographs.
