Best things to do

 

 

 

Halong Bay
When we talk about breathtaking views and a UNESCO World Heritage Site coming together, we can’t get away without mentioning Halong’s bay's wonderful seascape. The amazingly spectacular blend of karst limestone hills and protected, glistening seas are undoubtedly one of the best and the top tourist attraction here. Other caves in the bay need to be explored but the Hang Sung Sot and the Hang Dao Go take the cake. Three large caves and the wonderfully strange Stalagmites and stalacites make up the two destinations and offer fun activities like driving.
Hue
The 19th-century Nguyen rulers left behind a wealth of antiquities, and Hue, one of Vietnam's oldest cities, is no exception. Enjoy the Imperial Enclosure's beauty, which is a large area along the banks of the gorgeous Perfume River. You can find a dizzying variety of historical sites outside the Imperial Enclosure's boundaries. Taking a riverboat tour on the Perfume River is one of the greatest ways to see several distant locations. You can visit numerous royal tombs and a few pagodas on a day sail.
Ho Chi Minh City
The city gives a vibrant economic essence of Vietnam and must be seen for a trip there to be considered fully rounded. The diverse eateries with busy streets and shopping opportunities are a dream come true for every traveler.
  • Notre Dame Cathedral will give you time to learn about the history of the city through a brilliant collection of artifacts and interesting objects.
  • The historic area of Da Kao has left behind some great samples of the colonial architecture of France.
  • Jade Emperor Pagoda brings you the religious icons of Buddhism and Taoism.
  • See the abundant artifacts collected from a wide range of archaeological remains making The History Museum a perfect place for history lovers to explore.
Ph Quoc
Ph Quoc, located well down in the south of Vietnam, is the perfect place to slow down as it is lapped by turquoise waters and edged with the kind of white-sand beaches. The relatively small island has some regions of the natural jungle in addition to some more modern, less serene structures. And if you want to kick things up a notch, grab a bike and hit the roads.
Angkor
Angkor is one of Southeast Asia's most important archaeological sites since it is full of historical riches. It now appears on Cambodia's flag, serving as a national symbol. Since so many of the temples at Angkor have been restored, the enormous palace has become one of the wonders of the ancient world and provides a remarkable glimpse into Khmer history. Over farmlands and rice fields, there are the remains of a thousand temples. These include Ta Prohm, a Buddhist temple ruin encircled by tall trees, the renowned Angkor Wat temple, the biggest single religious structure in the world, the Bayon temple at Angkor Thom, and its plethora of gigantic stone faces.
Siem Reap
Unquestionably Cambodia's fastest-growing city, Siem Reap serves as a small, quaint gateway town to the Angkor temples, a renowned tourist attraction. These Cambodian tourist attractions have helped Siem Reap develop into a significant travel destination. It is a pleasant area to stay while seeing the temples because it is unhurried. Numerous 5-star hotels and hundreds of inexpensive guesthouses are available in Siem Reap. Many restaurants serve a variety of delicious cuisines that will leave you licking your fingers at the end.
Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh formerly referred to as "the gem of Asia," is regarded as one of the most beautiful towns the French created in Southeast Asia, even though the city is still recuperating from war and revolution. The Royal Palace, home of the royal family of Cambodia, and the Silver Pagoda, which is covered in silver tiles and houses a life-size gold Buddha that is set in diamonds, are among the top attractions. Phnom Penh’s Phsar Reatrey night market is a great spot to purchase homemade goods and souvenirs. Phnom Penh is surely the future of Cambodia and is bouncing back after a deserted past.
Ratanakiri
Ratanakiri is known to be one of the most suitable places in Cambodia for offering opportunities to see gibbons in Veun Sai-Siem Pang Conservation park, and trekking. Basically, Ratanakiri is rural Cambodia, and the endless red dirt roads in the area that lead to settlements of ethnic minorities are a traveler's dream. Additionally, possibilities for relaxation are available as well. Yeak Lom Crater Lake, located just outside of Ban Lung town, is a calm swimming location.
