Top Places to Visit in Vietnam (Part 2) – a continuation of a precious gem to go to on the Land of the rising dragon.

Ninh Binh

One of the well-known places to visit in Vietnam is Ninh Binh. The place has natural awe-inspiring landscapes that enthralls every travellers.

Locals are quite laid back and their livelihood is centered on farming. Ninh Binh sits inside jutting towers of limestone karst, similar to the iconic Halong Bay.

Ninh Binh is a languid place, a preferred meet-up getaway for locals and tourists too. It also serves as one of the biggest gateways to several places in the countryside.

Trang An Grottoes is a network of caves situated just outside of the city, an easy bike ride away – or take a day trip to the Tam Coc Area of Natural Beauty.

Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park

Officially labeled as one of the Unesco World Heritage Site way back in 2003, the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is home to the oldest karst mountains in Asia, formed approximately 400 million years ago.

Packed with hundreds of cave systems – many of extraordinary scale and length – and spectacular underground rivers, Phong Nha is a piece of heaven for speleologists.

The most notable destination within the park is the Paradise Cave, which extends for a staggering 31 kilometers below ground.

The yawning caverns here are truly spectacular. Tu Lan Cave is a “wet cave,” and a visit here includes swimming through the cave-systems river.

The other most popular excursion is to the Phong Nha Caves, where the interior is accessed by boat.

You can reach Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park from Son Trach.

Da Nang

One of the best places to go to in Central Vietnam is Da Nang. It is also considered one of the main cities in the country but leaning towards a laid-back lifestyle compared to the mainstream cities Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi.

Visiting Da Nang, you will be astounded by the amazing natural landscape, the friendly locals, and a countless number of great attractions around the city.

Surrounding the city are several iconic attractions every traveler must not miss – Ba Na Hills, The Marble Mountains, My Son Sanctuary, and many more.

Da Nang is also one of the safest places to be in Vietnam, it has maintained a low crime rate as well as lesser street congestion without beggars and drug addicts.

Most notably, My Khe beach has been voted one of the 6 most beautiful beaches in the world by US Forbes Magazine.

Visitors are not only able to sunbathe on the white sand beaches, immerse in the crystal-clear sea, but also admire the other great masterpieces of creators and human beings as well as enjoy its purity and peace.

Da Lat

Nestled in the southern part of Vietnam’s central highlands, Dalat is a place you see in paintings.

The city has a fresher climate and is an elegant rural city that is scattered with French colonial villas. Initially developed as a French holiday resort, the city has become somewhat of a romantic holiday destination for both locals and tourists couples.

Its streets are filled with horse-drawn carriages and a noticeable Eiffel Tower-like structure overlooking the city.

It isn’t all about romance though, those who are into adventure sports find their way here to try out a spot of mountain biking, trekking in the mountains, or perhaps some white-water rafting.

Mekong Delta

In the far south of Vietnam sits the immense Mekong River. Surrounded by lush greens of mangroves and paddy field vistas, this city is known for its floating markets.

Aside from this, it also features fruit orchards, rice paddies, sugar cane groves, bird sanctuaries, and quaint villages are all that draw many to the Mekong Delta in southwestern Vietnam. Coined as “Vietnam’s Rice Basket,” the Mekong Delta provides food in most of the country with its rich plantations, orchards, rice paddies, and fish farms.

Can Tho is the most popular town to use as a base as it’s close to the floating markets of Phong Dien and Cai Rang, while boat trips from Ca Mau allow you to explore the U Minh Mangrove Forest and Cau Mau Nature Reserve.
