Vietnam is a diverse country with a wide range of experiences and adventures to offer. Indulge in the country’s renowned street food scene in buzzing cities like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City and discover the country’s rich history at ancient temples and pagodas. Trek through lush landscapes in the northern highlands or unwind on pristine beaches along the coast. Get to know the Vietnamese culture through its unique spiritual elements.
The best way to get a feel for Vietnam is by getting out amongst the locals. A homestay experience is a great option where you stay with a family in their home rather than a hotel or bed & breakfast. It’s an incredible experience where you can learn more about the Vietnamese culture, their daily lives and their beliefs.
You can also visit the country’s most impressive religious structures, such as the ornate Temple of Literature or St Joseph’s Cathedral in Hanoi and the UNESCO listed Imperial Citadel of Thang Long. Then head to the north’s premier trekking destination, Sapa to meet hill tribe communities and hike through spectacular mountains and lush landscapes.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can buy a motorbike in either Hanoi or HCMC and travel the length of the country yourself. This is considered a rite of passage for many veteran backpackers and offers a much more in-depth exploration of the country than you’ll be able to do on a bus or train.
On a more somber note, pay tribute to the nation’s hostile history at the Vietnam War Museum and Throne Room in Ho Chi Minh City. Then explore the former DMZ on a day trip from Saigon to learn more about the conflict and see the remains of the demilitarised zone. 베트남 에코걸의 지역별 특징과 프로필 및 팁
