Best sights in Vietnam
Vietnam’s capital city is an exciting blend of old and new. The best way to see it is by scooter, riding around the lake, stopping at coffee houses to recharge, and exploring the ancient temples. But be aware of traffic. It’s kind of crazy.
Ho Chi Minh (1,724km from Hanoi)
Named after the legendary communist revolutionary and prime minister of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, formerly known as Saigon, is the more modern of Vietnam’s big cities, with wide avenues and epic-sized towers.
Dalat (1,418km from Hanoi)
Known by locals as the “City of Eternal Spring”, Dalat is a city surrounded by green hills and pine forests, centred around a serene lake and dotted with beautiful temples and monasteries.
Hoi An (797km from Hanoi)
Probably the most well-preserved town of Vietnamese history, Hoi An, is a place of traditional Vietnamese architecture and criss-crossing canals that create a peaceful and calm beauty.
Halong Bay (174km from Hanoi)
Without doubt Vietnam’s most famous natural landmark, Halong Bay has been the filming location for many Hollywood films, and with its green islands and turquoise waters, it’s not hard to see why.
Sapa Valley (318km from Hanoi)
This is where you’ll find the most ancient, traditional side of Vietnam. Sapa Valley is a green place of rice terraces and small hill tribes who live among them. The distant mountains makes it that much prettier.
