A UNESCO World Heritage and arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world. Literally, the ‘Bay of the Descending Dragon’, Halong Bay’s limestone karst pillars & islands are scattered over 168 square miles creating a world unto its own. Only a few hours from Hanoi, Halong is a must see. Make the drive to Halong, board your well appointed ship and sail the bay admiring countless scenic vistas, floating villages, caves, beaches, lagoons, and more.
The far north of Vietnam is a kaleidoscope of lush mountainous communities, terraced rice fields, rural villages, colorful hill tribes, and a collection of ancient cultures and traditions. Sapa is by far the most popular as you go further north from Hanoi, deservingly so, but it’s the hill tribe markets nearby that leave the greatest impression. Ha Giang & Mai Chau in north Vietnam are also not to be missed, both gaining popularity, but not yet at Sapa status. Photographers take note.
The coastal town of Hoi An is also a UNESCO World Heritage and among the most charming of towns you’ll visit in Vietnam. Located in Central Vietnam, close to Danang, Hoi An boasts a well-preserved old town, once a Southeast Asian trading port, with ancient merchant homes, old assembly halls, faded colonial architecture, delectable cafes & restaurants, a vibrant riverside market, and a seemingly endless array of personal tailors.
The Mekong Delta can certainly conjure up images of palm trees & paddy fields, rural villages and war, or Hollywood’s version of it, but the Mekong villages and lifestyle in South Vietnam is an experience that is truly Vietnamese. Row a sampan through narrow palm fringed canals, cross monkey bridges from one community to the next, cycle through village streets, call it a night at a local home, purchase some fruit at a congested floating market, or just simply take a walking tour through the local villages. Easily accessible from Saigon, the Mekong Delta will be a highlight.
Vietnam’s coastline is over 3000km and runs the length of the country. Beaches & oceanside communities abound with well trodden towns & cities dotting the country from north to south and yet to be discovered beaches and quaint villages asking for you to discover, explore & experience. The beaches may not match with those in Thailand or Bali, but the oceanfront lifestyle will not be forgotten.
BEST TIME TO VISIT:
Vietnam is an ideal destination all year round, but the weather patterns vary greatly from one region to the next. Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate with wet and dry seasons varying from north to south and with elevation changes. November-April is the dry season in the north, Central Highlands and south. Temperatures range from 14-33 degrees Celsius. The rainy (or monsoon) season extends from June to September in the north and south, and from October to December in central Vietnam.
