When you come to Hoi An, you can savour some special foods such as Banh Bao Banh Vac ( White Rose Dumplings) , Cao Lau ( pork, noodles, veggies and croutons ) and Banh Xeo.
Almost Vietnamese pancakes are made from rice flour and are filled with pork, shrimp, green onion and bean sprouts. They owe their yellow color to turmeric, not eggs, and they’ll typically have some small prawns cooked inside.

Cu Chi Tunnels
Vietnam Military Museum, Cu Chi Tunnels, all which offered a piece of history on Vietnam worth learning. Undoubtedly, this destination is very attracted tourist and Vietnam tour guides are important people who integral part of these tour.
Nha Trang Beach
Vietnam’s beaches may be one of the country’s most unsung beauties. Vietnam boasts beaches that rival these countries’ beloved tourists spots. Sure, some beach towns in Vietnam, like Nha Trang and Mui Ne, get a lot of attention, but quieter, less-traveled beaches like Doc Let are the real treasures. Con Dao and Phu Quoc are some of the most gorgeous islands in South East Asia, and travelers would be wise to hurry there now, before these isolated, idyllic spot
6. Ha Long Bay
Ha Long Bay
The best way to explore Halong Bay is to book an overnight stay on a junk boat. It can get quite touristy – be warned. However falling asleep to the sound of rain and thunder, and waking up to the sight of limestone rock formations standing over the boat is one of the most incredible things
The UNESCO World Heritage Site is ethereally beautiful; tranquil turquoise water is juxtaposed against thousands of limestone islands, which makes the bay a marvel to look at. The whole place has a mystical feel to it, thanks to the mist that hangs over the place for a lot of the year.So Halong bay is often appeared in most Vietnam tours.
The bay used to be littered with a lot more trash, but with recent clean-up efforts, it’s much better these days. The 1,600 islands jut out of the sea, seemingly one on top of the other, creating a dramatic scape of mountains, sea and sky.
7. Hoi An
Hoi An is one of the most picturesque, lovely places to visit in all of Vietnam. Located in the center of the country, just outside of Danang, Hoi An used to be a flourishing port town from the 15th to the 19th centuries, before the Thu Bon river silted up and basically halted trade in the region. The former major port town is just so pretty; electric pink bougainvillea climbing up yellow buildings, colourful Chinese lanterns and graceful architecture at every turn. And while it is no longer as (overused travel adjective alert) ‘sleepy’ as it used to be, the town is still a tranquil haven when you compare it to the craziness of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
The pace in Hoi An is much slower, and, as such, it gives you the opportunity to slow down and to really get under the place’s skin. The main market is full to the brim with fresh produce (warning: the meat and fish sections are certainly not for the fainthearted) and funnily enough.
8. Hue Citadel
Like many countries in Asia, Vietnam used to be ruled by dynasties of families; by feudal lords and ladies; by emperors with harems and grand palaces.
From 1802 to 1945, Vietnam was ruled by the Nguyen Dynasty, a powerful family who had its capital in the city of Hue. for more than 100 years. They would become the last ruling family of this sort in Vietnam, since the Emperor abdicated in 1945 in favor of the new communist government being set up in Hanoi under Ho Chi Minh. But, since the Nguyen Dynasty was based here for so long, Hue is often still referred to as “Vietnam’s Imperial City.” This sprawling complex in Hue was where the Emperors of old would have lived and conducted all their business. There was even a part of the citadel known as “The Forbidden Purple City,” which, much like China’s Forbidden City, was reserved for only the most important people in Vietnam.
Unfortunately, the Imperial Citadel today is just a shadow of what it once was. The temples, pavilions, walls, and gates were damaged first during skirmishes with the French in 1947, and then most of what was left was destroyed by American forces during the Tet Offensive(a major military campaign during the American-Vietnam War) in 1968.
It’s still well worth a visit, though, even if the restoration process has been slow.
The Terraced Fields in SaPa
Sapa, a hill station in the Northwest of Vietnam, is one of the country’s most stunning areas. Its dramatic rice terraces and surrounding peaks make this mountainous area well worth the short trip from Hanoi. You can take an overnight train from Hanoi to Sapa, which makes it a popular destination on the tourist circuit.
Hanoi – the City of Mortobikes
There is an art to crossing the road in Vietnam and this is due to the thousands of motorcycles in every city and town. So don’t worry if you find yourself waiting on the side of the road for up to five minutes to safely cross – it’s normal. With over 39 million motorbikes ( up from 4 million in 1996) in Vietnam, you really need to go for it but you also need to be very mindful when you do.
Besisdes, it is one of the first and more important things to learn when visiting Vietnam is how to cross the street. It may be intuitive at home, but the traffic in Vietnam’s major cities seems so chaotic and incessant, that getting from one side of the road to the other feels almost impossible at first. That’s a lot of bikes — and with at least two people on every bike — that’s also a lot of people. The trick to crossing the street is to walk steadily, at an even pace. If you’re moving at a predictable rate, the motorcyclists will move around you. Eye-contact with oncoming bikers doesn’t hurt either. The most important thing is to keep moving and not to stop or speed up. Once you’ve got the hang of crossing the street, you can really appreciate the beauty of the organized chaos.
In conclusion, no matter where in Vietnam or Vietnam tourist spots you come surely you will fall in love this country !
