Vietnam Tourism & Travel Guide

Vietnam is a thin strip of land in Southeast Asia, bordered by Cambodia, Laos and the South China Sea. Known for its buzzing cities, spectacular beaches and incredible street food, this country is very popular in the backpacking circuit. Vietnam is brought to life by the myriad magical experiences it offers. Its cities are full of life with happy locals zip-zapping on colourful scooters, the countryside offers a landscape that is unforgettable, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park has an impressive network of caves to explore, the interiors are teeming with rich biodiversity and there is the classic Vietnam tourism picture to take with farmers moving about with conical hats. What's more – as a tourist, this is a great time to visit this exotic country with hotels coming up almost everywhere and the government focussing on improving road network to make access easier and comfortable for visitors.

Ho Chi Minh City
The city of Ho Chi Minh offers an array of food to its locals and tourists. They use fresh, simple ingredients to create complex flavours. A food trip to the city of Saigon ( as many people refer to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam) can turn into one of the most memorable ones if you know what to have and where to have it. Here are some of the most popular Vietnamese food that must try:
Feb 19: Day 10: HanoiI had plans to go see the Halong bay. But the cave had taken the most of me. I slept more. I stayed at hotel Hanoi Graceful. 27 USD, last day so spend a little. Then went out for lunch at Namaste Hanoi. Very good Indian food. Next stop: The Train street. Yeah, this is quite famous amongst people travelling to Hanoi. Google about it. The train comes at 3.30pm. I have it in my video.
Nha Trang
Feb 11: Day 2: Nha TrangEarly morning I got up to catch my train to Nha Trang. I found a Xe Om (motorbike taxi) outside on the main road and bargained with him to go to the railway station for 50,000 VND.This SE6 train starts at 9.00am and reaches Nha Trang at around 4.30pm. You can see some real good landscapes (as seen in the video) if you book a soft seat. Its also cheaper than soft bed.Saigon was hot. Nha Trang was cold with drizzles and cloud cover for almost the entire day.The Nha Trang beach is one of the best I have ever been to. (I've used the word 'been' and not 'seen'). I was in Nha Trang for some 2 days. I went to the beach "6 times". Even once at 5.30am to catch the sunrise. Si Si.. Vietnam has an east coast. No sunsets.
Danang City is developing into a venue for Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE). Large hotels, casinos and wedding halls line the coastal roads and excursion to UNESCO Sites like Hue, Mỹ Sơn and Hoi An are close by. The cool months of December is a wonderful time to visit and we certainly wouldn’t mind returning for more exploration.

Best Time to Visit Vietnam

Peak season to visit Vietnam is from February to April and August to October.      

Shoulder Season: December to March is when the Vietnamese New Year or Tet Festival is celebrated here, so prices soar. The northern part of the country has cold weather, while in the south, the sun shines bright.

Off-season: September to November, autumn season, and April to June, is a great time to explore the country when prices are low and tourists few.
