Top Destinations in Vietnam
For culture vultures, there is no shortage of temples, tombs, pagodas and crumbling palaces to admire and explore. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Huế is home to the Citadel, once the emperor’s private residence, and the Forbidden Purple City, where he housed his many mistresses. When your feet are weary, grab some bún bò buế (beef noodle soup) and watch swan pedalos cruise the Perfume River as the sun sets.
Foodies can feast on street food in Vietnam’s culinary capital. If you fancy trying your hand at Vietnamese cuisine, many restaurants offer half-day cooking courses .
Go trekking in the hills of Sapa for amazing views across the jungle and mountain ranges of north-west Vietnam. Equipment is cheap and easy to come by so don’t worry if you’re not a natural mountain goat, you’ll soon be up there, gazing at the views as the mist rolls in across the peaks.
The hustle and bustle of Vietnam’s capital can at first seem intimidating, but don’t let the weaving motorbikes and screaming street hawkers put you off. Behind the hustle and bustle you’ll find tranquility in the Temple of Literature, peace at One Pillar Pagoda, and more charming French patisseries then you could wish for.
Ho Chi Minh City
Former Saigon is now Vietnam’s international business hub. Get your gladrags on and head up to one of the many skybars, found on the top floor of the city’s sleek skyscrapers. Cocktail in hand, admire the best view of Ho Chi Minh City by night.

Vietnamese and Chinese New Year- With a history that dates back thousands of years, the Tet festival was originally a celebration held by Vietnamese farmers to thank the gods for the arrival of spring, sometime between late January or early February. Although officially a three-day affair, festivities may continue for a week or more with every effort made to indulge in eating, drinking, and enjoyable social activities. It is also a time for family reunions, and for paying respect to ancestors and the elders. Gifts of food are made to friends, neighbors and relatives in the days before Tet.
