There is so much to do in Vietnam that it’s difficult to find a place to begin, but don’t miss the awe-inspiring sites of Halong Bay, the French colonists Notre-Dame cathedral in Saigon or the bamboo bridges in Sapa. The mountainous regions of the far north are perhaps the most authentic reaches of the country – there you’ll have an opportunity to meet the Red Dzao Mountain tribe and see the incredible rice terraces deep in the hills. Though the city of Hanoi is just as resplendent with attractions too – such as the One Pillar Pagoda, water puppet theatre and the Presidential Palace.
Further south in central Vietnam the delightful coastal city of Hoi An is home to the Thu Bon River, the Chua Ong chinese Pagoda and the delightful Thanh Ha Pottery Village. In the south you can take a boat ride on the Mekong delta, explore Saigon’s chinatown and the Taoist temple Jade Emperor Pagoda. There are plenty of great holiday options to Vietnam and fortunately, Skanda Tours has some wonderful options for you top take advantage of. Try for example the 18 Day Indochina and Thailand highlights Viatnam, Thailand Tour or the 14 day Best of Cambodia and Vietnam Tour which will take you all over Vietnam including stops in Halong Bay and the cu chi tunnel.
