Though Vietnam looks super tiny on the map, it’s impossible to explore this fascinating country in weeks, even months. Vietnam is not only all about big cities like Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi. Somewhere along the line, there are great destinations such as “The city of eternal spring” – Dalat, Imperial City – Hue,…that will give you a new breath and impression. After long days of working, a crazy period of the pandemic, why not give yourself a break with luxury and beautiful resorts and hotels in these locations? Take a glimpse of Vietnam with top 5 best destinations you should visit below that Hoozing has listed:

1. Da Lat

Da Lat is an ethereal little mountain town located in the southern highland region of the country. Picturesque Da Lat is a refreshing break from the south’s tropical climate. Cool temperatures and fresh air – not to mention the gorgeous surroundings – make Da Lat a must-go destination in Vietnam by not only foreigners but also locals. You can catch a quick flight from Saigon or hop on a 6-8 hours bus journey. Take a night bus, wake up with a perfect view and refresh air, doesn’t it sound perfect? It even gets better if you stay at Dalat Edensee Lake Resort & Spa – A little resort nestles in “Black Forest”

This city is the only place in Vietnam where you can experience all seasons in one day. Undoubtedly, it is number 1 of best destinations in Vietnam. Spring in the morning, summer at midday, autumn in the evening, and winter at night. However, make sure to bring warm sweaters and pants, it gets really chilly at night.

2. Da Nang

Da Nang is Vietnam’s third-largest city and lies nearly 18.6 miles North of Hoi An. People will spend some time here before arriving in the ancient town, but Da Nang is also one of the best destinations in Vietnam to explore. Like any coastal Vietnamese town or city, Da Nang’s white sand and clear water beaches are a must for beach lovers and it has some fabulous nightlife as well. If you’re looking for a place to stay that has an amazing ocean view, Chicland Hotel is an excellent choice! Check it out.

The Dragon Bridge is illuminated at night and the whole city looks incredible from many rooftop bars. Not only that but there are so many other things to see – the historical My Son temples, the Marble Mountains, Ba Na Hills,…Don’t forget to visit The Golden Bridge that is located in Ba Na Hills. The bridge has become an attraction to visitors because of its design. Since it has come to operate, the bridge is a highlight of Da Nang.

3. Hoi An 

Charming ancient Hoi An is another best choice for Vietnamese and expats. The old city is full of colonial architecture and is a lovely place to take in an early morning or late afternoon stroll, when the sun is no longer at its boiling peak. Blooming gardens, illuminated and colorful lanterns glowing after dark, good food and gorgeous beaches await at this dreamy, ancient spot in central Vietnam. If you only have time to visit a few places in Vietnam, make Hội An one of them. But make sure to turn it into quality time with Silk Village Resort & Spa by Embrace.

The moment you sit on a small boat paddling along the river to release the lantern, Hoi An will be your favorite destination in the world. It’s exactly as captivating as the pictures show, and it gets even more beautiful at night because all the lanterns lighten up at the same time. This town is also home to hundreds of professional tailors, so spend a couple of days and have a nice dress or suit made just for you.

4. Ninh Binh 

This place for sure is one of the best destinations to visit in Vietnam. Ninh Binh is also known as the Ha Long Bay on land for an obvious reason – it looks like Ha Long Bay but on land instead of water. There are hundreds of limestone monoliths topped by dense greenery that emerge from the ground, scattered around the city with serpentine rivers flowing through them and caves formed in them. Most trips to this area are combined with a visit to the Tam Coc caves and grottoes as well. Book yourself a room at Emeralda Ninh Binh Resort and Spa to have a great experience.

Ninh Binh is only 95 kilometers away from Hanoi. Catching overnight buses from Ninh Binh to other cities is pretty easy, but why not give yourself a chance to use the night train called “Reunification Express”? 

5. Nha Trang

Though Nha Trang is significantly busier and has a rapid lifestyle than some of the other beach towns in the south, that also means there is so much more to do. Empty sandy beaches that stretch for miles, cool amusement park, ranges of untouched mountains, an interesting history, and a unique culture, you name it, Nha Trang has it all. To make your trip more memorable, Hoozing would love to suggest to you Royal Beach Boton Blue Hotel & Spa.

The nightlife is a lot of fun, and there are so many extreme activities for the adrenaline people among you – jet skiing, surfing or even a flyboard, if you’re brave enough. Besides, don’t forget to get a ticket at Vinpearl Nha Trang with the world’s longest cable car trait across Nha Trang Bay.
