Amazing Spots around Vietnam You Wouldn't Believe Are Real

When people think of the most beautiful places in the world, they often think of countries like the Maldives, or islands such as Hawaii, or even the city of Venice. But did you know that Vietnam has many stunning destinations as well? Vietnam has some of the most beautiful places that you won’t believe until you see them for yourself. Plan a vacation over to Vietnam and stop by some of these areas for an amazing trip.

Halong Bay

Halong Bay is so gorgeous that it has been declared a UNESCO Heritage Site. Featuring thousands of limestone islands that have been eroded into pinnacle rocks, the bay features tons of views of the sea that will leave you awestruck. It is highly recommended that you take a few days to see all of the beauty in the bay as a day trip does not do it justice.

How should you travel to Vietnam during this time? As there is a pandemic happening and there is a lot of concern over safety in airplanes, many people are electing not to fly. However, according to this website, private jets are an alternative to flying that is not nearly expensive as people think. You can get the privacy and security that you need on the flight, ensuring that you get to Vietnam safely and can see everything that you want to.

Along with the bay and the sea itself, there are also plenty of caves that have been created due to the water and winds. Choose a boat tour that explores some of these so you can see the beauty and power nature has to offer. Halong Bay is an amazing sight that you should plan to see in Vietnam.

Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park

Another world heritage site, this park features a beautiful cave system that is fully set up for you to explore and walk around in. Home to beautiful formations of stalagmites and stalactites, the cave is filled with huge caverns that could be explored for days if it weren’t for the designated paths. The most popular cave - Paradise Cave - reaches a depth of 31km.

If you don’t want to walk through caves for a full day, there are also wet caves that allow you to swim through the cave river system. These are accessible via boat, and you can leave knowing you got a once in a lifetime experience swimming in a cave.

My Son

My Son is a set of temple ruins that date back to the 4th century. Despite it being so old, it was still used for approximately 300-600 years after it was built before eventually being abandoned somewhere in the 13th century. Despite being abandoned and forgotten, the ruins have survived remarkably over the years.

There are around 20 temple structures for you to explore here that show influence from plenty of Asian empires in the region. The region itself also features the history of the Vietnam War, as American soldiers traversed through the ruins.

Sapa Countryside

The Sapa countryside is full of jagged peaks, rolling hills, and deep valleys. The locals in the area have turned it into large rice fields, and you will be surprised at how green the area is. There are plenty of hiking trails available, and a tourist center has appeared and is now booming with people looking to explore the area. Treat the area with respect, as people still farm the land and use it.

Nha Trang

What if you want something tropical or want to spend time on the beach? Nha Trang is the place for you to go. It features a beach that is comparable to anything in Hawaii, with beautiful sand and a nice ocean. There are designated areas on the beach set out for swimming and relaxing. If you do want something more than just a beach, there are also ancient temples in the area for you to explore along with a museum. This will allow you to see many things while also relaxing on your vacation.

Cu Chi Tunnels

This is a fantastic experience for any history buff, but will also be great for any travelers. These tunnels show off Vietnamese modern military history as this extensive tunnel network was carved and created during the Vietnam War. Stretching more than 250km, it allowed the Vietnam Communist troops to move around and across the land.

These are all fantastic areas that you have to see to believe. Start planning yourself a trip and try to see as many of them as possible. Take the time to enjoy them as well, as there is plenty to be taken in. What do you plan on seeing in Vietnam?
