While natural beauty has always been an important reason for Vietnam’s popularity, there is much beneath the surface of this wondrous destination. With a host of historic attractions, old temples and history, this country is a history buff’s ideal vacation! Start out from Ho Chi Minh City! Explore the Cu Chi tunnels, explore the Independence Palace, look on at the War Remnants Museum and soak in the vibe of Pham Ngu Lao Street. You should also make time to explore Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica as well as the famed Giac Lam Pagoda!
Apart from the capital city, though, other locations like Nha Trang, Vietnam’s seaside resort town and the Mekong River are also excellent additions to your itinerary! You can also visit Mui Ne, the Sa Pa Terraces as well as Hoi An. Landmarks like My Son, the West Lake, One Pillar Pagoda and Vinpearl are also worth looking at. Nature lovers should go visit the Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Cat Ba National Park as well as the famed Marble Mountains!
While the food here suffers from a few stereotypes, Vietnamese cuisine also comes with a few delightful surprises that you can do without! Hog on some Banh Cuon, chomp on a Banh Mi and dig into a plate of fresh Goi cuon! Start your morning with some Banh Xeo, a plate of Banh Khot and some delicious Bun Bo Hue! With so much rice, noodles and various meats to choose from, you can be assured of a mouth-watering experience! Try out some Hu tieu and Canh Chua if you have space left over!
Vietnam also offers ample opportunities to get your adrenaline running with a host of adventure sport offerings! From skydiving, trekking, scuba diving and skiing, this destination literally has it all! From the Sapas Mountains to the exotic coastline, the thrills of Vietnam keep on coming!
Whether you want to go visit Ho Chi Minh, try your hand at some of the exotic cuisine or just laze on the beach, take some time to prepare for every eventuality.
