Editor’s Note: I originally posted this Vietnam itinerary to answer the questions I was fielding from friends about suggested itineraries for Vietnam. Over the past two years dozens of travelers have asked some great questions about what to see and do in Vietnam, which I wanted to share. If you have a question, just leave a comment and I’ll do my best to reply.
Sure, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) are spectacular, but there’s much more to Vietnam than just those two destinations. Vietnam is filled to the brim with exotic sandy beaches, untapped cultural landmarks and all the rural culture you can handle, from the absolutely stunning beaches and growing nightlife of Nha Trang, to the historical old town of beautiful Hoi An. For those with the adventurer’s sense of traveling, there are more than enough reasons to extend your stay in Vietnam. Here are our top places in Vietnam that are not in Hanoi or Saigon.
There is no shortage of activities to enjoy and sites to explore and there is something to suit every taste and budget. Vietnam’s largest city is surprisingly easy to navigate so all ages will find exploring this city enjoyable and easy. Here are our top 10 tips, tricks and recommendations for Ho Chi Minh City.
For anyone looking to wake up one morning and find themselves in Ho Chi Minh City, expect everything. With a population well over 7 million (and growing) spilling onto its busy streets everyday to peddle its exotic wares, cuisine (which includes a variety of snakes, dog, and fruit you’ve never fathomed exists), and hound foreigners with offers of any- and everything, modern day Ho Chi Minh City is decidedly immodest.
Apparently Tintin never actually went to Vietnam but I’m sure if he had, he would have enjoyed Viator‘s Mekong Delta Adventure Tour. Parts of this tour were a little well – goofy. But even the ‘too cool to be on vacation with her parents’ teenager got into it. There’s something about being loaded on the back of a motorcycle crossed with a people mover and trundling down a path, ducking palm fronds and waving to little kids that was just plain fun.
