Things to do in Vietnam

Main Attractions of Vietnam

 

Start any Vietnam tour by cruising Halong bay (Ha Long Bay in Vietnamese, meaning the ‘descending dragon bay’), a beautiful boat ride that travels through limestone rocks and still, blue waters. The ones who want to party at Halong Bay will usually stay 2-3 nights as boats in the bay merge and travelers share stories of their tour of Vietnam. For the more relaxed visitor, 1-2 nights is the usual stay.

 

From Halong bay, travel the north of Vietnam in Sapa. With rugged scenery and picturesque rice terraces, trekking Sapa will captivate any seasoned traveler. Next, travel to Hanoi, Vietnam's frenetic capital city that beats to the sound of sizzling Vietnamese street food, lively fruit markets and the perpetual sound of motorbike engines. If you want non-stop action then it's a wise choice to travel Hanoi.

After this mind-blowing start to your Vietnam tour, you still have so many great towns as you travel Vietnam, from the charming Hội An, a town with colorful streets and a thriving shopping hub, attracting millions of tourists a year, all purchasing perfectly tailored suits,  to the bustling nightlife of Nha Trang, that are well worth a visit as you then travel on from Ha Long bay down to the Mekong delta in southern Vietnam. Hue, Vietnam's ancient capital is particularly interesting to view the early history of Vietnam.

 

Vietnam offers just the start of your Indochina tours but as you travel Southeast Asia you may just realize that if you visit Vietnam you will find the cream of the crop.

 

So what's Vietnam all about?

Food and Culture of Vietnam

 

Vietnam tours will open your eyes to the fascinating history and the fervent integrity that the Vietnamese have generated over time. From the mastermind trenches to the somber and overwhelming museums, Ho Chi Minh, the capital, formerly known as Saigon,  propels you into poignant museums and a great understanding of the history of Vietnam.

 

If you are after an eclectic array of Southeast Asian food then search no further because Vietnamese food is your next stop. Traveling Vietnam will provide you with a multitude of dishes, ranging from the obscure to the sumptuous (at cheap prices).

The beauty of Vietnamese food lies in its range of spices used in the majority of their dishes. A fusion of ginger, lemongrass, lime, chili, cinnamon and mint, including a few other specialties, is a novel and flavorsome addition to any dish. Indulge in Pho noodle soup or goi salad and let your senses run wild.

 

When to go to Vietnam

What time of the year is it best to visit Vietnam

 

Being so diverse and reliant on your location, Vietnam is a hard place to call as you can almost certainly expect every type of weather on your Vietnam tours.

 

Be sure to avoid monsoon season in the northeast between October and March. Similarly, be sure to avoid central Vietnam during the months of July-November due to a series of violent typhoons.

 

That being said, Vietnam weather is unpredictable and so the majority of the time the weather is beautiful. If it is damp, it usually adds to the atmosphere.

 

Popular times to visit are during the summer months of April-August. Vietnam tours are also popular between October-March, mainly in the south.

 

If you are backpacking South East Asia it is imperative that you give Vietnam the time it deserves by stopping over for a long stay. A few days simply won't do.

 

How can I organize a tour of Vietnam?

 

Local travel agencies provide the best and most secure way to travel in Vietnam. Traditional tour operators are rarely in touch with the locals and planning your Vietnam trip beforehand can be strenuous.
