Fall in love with the capital of Vietnam. There is a method to the madness of this exciting city. Its old tales are as romantic as its newly found place in the travel map, so do not shy away from the old Quarters. Don’t forget to stop for a bowl of noodles while you are busy exploring the hawker’s market.
Ho Chi MInh City
Previously known as Saigon, this is the biggest city in Vietnam. There is something for everyone here in this old city, high-end restaurants to street side food stalls, upscale hotels to hostels, no one is left out in Ho Chi Minh City. There is also the French Quarter that has some amazing bars to chill in.
You can find happiness in Hoi An, Vietnam’s mesmerising city that is a national heritage. A serene place that is a lot different from the busy Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh, here in Hoi An, lounge bars and boutique hotels abound. The Bon River plays muse to this beautiful little place, and everything is just all about the good vibes.
Phu Quoc Island
A must-visit beach paradise of Vietnam, it is a step away from the old-world charm of Hoi An. But nevertheless, nature is on your side here in this beautiful island. The charming place has been known to attract a lot of western tourists. But the beaches are still relatively unspoiled, and you have a good chance of finding yourself in the company of the azure waters.
