A journey to Vietnam isn’t complete without a stay in Hanoi, the country’s capital city. Sure, but there’s so much more that Vietnam has to offer! After explaining how to survive Vietnam last week, I’ll now tell you which highlights not to miss on your Vietnam trip: 8 good reasons to travel to Vietnam this winter.
Luscious green palm leaves bending in the wind. Water buffalos on flooded rice fields. The sound of a rattling scooter engine. A rain poncho hanging from a tree at the side of the street, fluttering in the wind. It is a rare occasion that an insider’s tip from a travel guide really is an insider’s tip. Son Trach exceeds expectations.
Vietnam is the perfect country for first-time visitors to Southeast Asia. You probably have a lot of questions, still: How the hell are you supposed to cross a street without getting knocked down? How does it feel to be a millionaire? What is pho? And how much is too much money for a ride in a motor taxi?
Vietnam’s Halong Bay is a must see. The beauty of its majestic limestone formations exceeds any expectations. So does the number of tourists.
I am about to leave for Vietnam. These past weeks have been passing by so fast and now I am sitting at the airport, waiting for boarding time.
