Vietnam is one of the hottest tourist places on Earth right now and for many valid reasons. So today we look at why now is a better time than ever to visit this magical country.
10. Breathtaking Scenery
Blessed with the most amazing landscapes, lush green expanses, rugged mountains and more rivers and lakes than one can mention, this country never fails to deliver on visual wonder.
9. The People
The people of Vietnam are warm, friendly and very accommodating. They have a great outlook on life and know how to enjoy life to the fullest. They will certainly feature in your holiday highlights.
8. The Food
Not only is the food amazing, but on the most part its very healthy too. The Vietnamese cuisine features a lot of fresh ingredients such as vegetables and seafood. From the street vendors to the five star restaurants, the Vietnamese cuisine never fails to deliver.
7. 2 Countries in 1
I often say that those going to Hanoi may have a completely different view on Vietnam from those who visited Ho Chi Minh City. This country is so diverse yet shares some common bonds and ties. To truly appreciate the difference you must see both for yourself.
Whether you’re into water sports, hiking, nature, off-road, running, biking etc, Vietnam has it all. There’s so much to see and do and yet unlike most other destinations around the world, its generally very affordable.
Vietnam has a proud and famous history. A visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels is definitely a high priority, so is one of the many museums in this great country.
4. The Beaches
Need I say more? Home to some of the best beaches on planet Earth and more amazingly, not too crowded. That’s why now is such a great time to explore Vietnam, before the inevitable crowds arrive.
3. The Rivers, Lakes and Waterways
There is something very charming and relaxing about taking a cruise down one of Vietnams many waterways. You could be whisked back to any time as these regions remain largely untouched. It really is a great way to clear the mind and enjoy the simple things.
2. The Markets
Arguably boasting some of the best markets in Asia, these are not to be missed. The hustle and bustle, the organised chaos and people trying their hardest to haggle for a bargain. You can buy anything from fresh produce to knock off watches to amazing souvenirs. Don’t miss this unforgettable experience.
1. Ha Long Bay
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this is a bucket list destination. Truly amazing and sure to leave you short of breath. Cruise around this bay for a few hours or days and you will talk about it for a lifetime.
Get to Vietnam NOW! Its changing rapidly and now is the time to breath all of that in and marvel at this truly wonderful country.
