Southern Vietnam

In Vietnam, the southern part is a very diverse area. Here, you will find your first destination called Saigon. If you’re not a city person, around the area you can check out the Mekong Delta for a tour of the river which spans out across three countries. You can make a short tour to Ho Chi Minh City and if you want to explore more, then you should visit can Tho, this is a bustling town in the middle of the Delta.

If rivers and houseboats aren’t your things, you can hit the beach and explore the coastal areas and islands. There are two places like Con Dao and Phu Quoc where are the nice gateway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

You will find at the North, Mui Ne and Nha Trang is the two popular coastal towns which are very popular among the travelers. In Mui Ne, you can enjoy the peculiar sand dunes or try your luck at kitesurfing. Dalat, located in the central highlands is a place that we recommend visiting for adrenaline and adventure lovers.

Visit Central Vietnam

After you’ve enjoyed your time along the coast, continue heading up Central Vietnam where you can enjoy the historical town of Hoi An, Danang, and Hue. Hoi An is one of my favorite towns in Vietnam. There is something about its quaint cobblestone streets, quiet beaches, and fantastic markets. You can travel to Hoi An and here you can taste delicious Banh Mi sandwich, this is just awesome. It is delicious and you should try it fast.

In Danang, you will find the popular Marble Mountains or the My Son temples located a little bit out of town. Apart from these attractions, Danang also has a nice beach which is worth visiting. For motorbike enthusiasts, don’t miss out on driving up the Hai Van Pass, otherwise known as the sea of clouds pass.

This striking road will give you uninhibited views of the city and the South China Sea. Hue, on the other hand, is an important city which is rich in history and culture. The 19th-century citadel enclosed by a moat is perfect for history lovers and enthusiasts.

Northern Vietnam

If you love nature then for you, Northern Vietnam is the best option. Here, you will be able to find several limestone karsts, scenic roads, and the yet cultural city of Hanoi. A short trip in this city is worthwhile. Apart from seeing the sights of the city, a trip to eat Hanoi’s famed “Bun Cha Hanoi” is highly recommended. In fact, President Obama even graced the humble eatery with his presence accompanied by foodie chef, Anthony Bourdain.

For those of you that don’t know, Bun Cha is a meal comprised of noodles, grilled meats, and a sweet and sour soup-like sauce. Words cannot even begin to label this meal as it is by far one of my favorite Vietnamese fares. Head over to Bun Cha Huong Lien to get a reliable taste of this delightful meal. Apart from food tripping in Hanoi, head on over to Ninh Binh to see the eccentric limestone karst formations.

Personally, I think Halong Bay is flattering much overvalued. For similar sceneries, Ninh Binh is the inland complement of Halong Bay except it is less touristy and less polluted. Sadly, the quantity of tourism floating down Halong bay has initiated the waters to be polluted which was a big discontent to me.

If you want to avoid the crowd but want to spend some quality time with your loved one in the beach area, then you should choose Cat Ba Island here. From there, you can kayak around the limestone karsts and travel the island’s caves and beaches. From there, you can endure heading up North, seeing the mountain rice area of Yen Bai, Sapa, and Ha Giang. You can also check different types of hill tribe villages and you may visit.

Alternatively, you can also buy an open bus ticket, getting on and off at all the main tourist hotspots. This is what I did and it was very easy and convenient.

Search for a reputable company, make sure you are getting the exact open bus ticket that you need (you choose based on the destinations) and off you go. If you are traveling during peak season, all you have to do is to call a number, asking them to reserve a seat for when you want to leave.
