The 5 Best Unusual Places to Visit in Vietnam

The 5 Best Unusual Places to Visit in Vietnam

Ready to make a Vietnam trip you won't forget? Want to experience something off-the-beaten-path, outside of the typical tourist traps?

We have done the research for you! Here we present the best unusual places to visit in Vietnam. After all, we want you to have a trip you'll never forget.

Awesome and Unusual Places to Visit in Vietnam

Am Phu Cave

Am Phu Cave

Ready to get weird or even a bit claustrophobic. Let's start with this name of the destination, which translates to English as hell. Adorned with local figurines, altars, and statues it fits its name well.

You'll feel like you're walking in two dimensions. One, being Heaven with the gorgeous Marble Mountains backdrop. The other, being the caves of hell.

Finish your adventure with the strenuous Stairway to Heaven and Road to Paradise. 

Location: Ngu Hanh Son, Da Nang, Vietnam

Ho Thuy Tien

Ho Thuy Tien Park

Why visit a bustling water park when you can visit a creepy, deserted one? 

Back in its heyday, this park was a premiere entertainment destination with slides, animal exhibits, and guaranteed fun.

Today, it's just an abandoned and eerie scene with deteriorating slides, unkempt grounds, and an overall "creepy" vibe. We consider it one of the weirdest places to visit in Vietnam. 

Location: Thuy Bang, Huong Thuy, Hue, Vietnam

Le Mat Snake Village

Hanoi's Snake Village

Want to add some unusual cuisine to your wonderful sightseeing? We guarantee this one will creep you right out. 

Are you intrigued yet? To put it this way, it's a hub of eateries all featuring one premiere menu item: snakes. 

Who knows- this might be one of the tastiest places to visit in Vietnam. You let us know! 

Location: Le Mat, Hanoi

Fairy Stream Mui Ne

Fairy Stream Mui Ne

Got your fill of snake dinners and deserted water parks?

Make your way over to the small, charming town Mui Ne, known for its exquisite rock formations and friendly stream. 

Go back to your ancestry roots, take off your shoes, and feel Mother Nature guide you. Enjoy wading your feet along the soft sand- and enjoy one of the obscure natural wonders of this country.

It's one of the more serene places to visit in Vietnam. The sheer beauty and tranquility are what makes it so unusual and worthwhile. 

Location: Mui Ne, Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

Here you will find a perfectly-preserved Vietnamese President Ho Chi Minh's body.

This historical feature has been around since 1975. Visitors will have access to view his body in his glass casket.

Don't take too long to stare, though. The line is forced to keep moving. Note that this is a more popular hot spot to visit. There may be long lines, so the earlier you arrive, the better!
