Best Things to See in Vietnam

Genial locals and a rustic atmosphere are what travelers often remember the most from their travels in Vietnam, but the country is also home to an intriguing mix of ancient ruins, secret cave shrines, gushing rivers, and verdant jungles that are sure to delight. The following is a brief overview of Vietnam's must-see attractions.

Halong Bay

Halong Bay Vietnam

Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage site riddled with towering Karst formations. The more than 1,600 islands have become a favorite among travelers who enjoy snorkeling, diving, sea-cruises, and cave excursions.

Notre Dame Basilica

Notre Dame Vietnam

One of the brightest legacies of French-colonial Vietnam, the Notre Dame Cathedral was constructed from materials imported from France in the last 19 th century. Though damaged by the Vietnam War, some of its original stained glass remains.

Mekong Delta

Mekong Delta Vietnam

Often called the “Rice Basket” of Vietnam, the Mekong Delta is the country's leading agricultural sector, and one of the world's most diverse biospheres. Some 10,000 species of animals inhabit this region, and boat cruises along the patchwork of streams that wind through the delta are popular excursions.

Reunification Palace

Reunification Palace Vietnam

Erected in 1873 for French colonial governors, the Reunification Palace (sometimes Independence Palace) was the site of some of the most important moments in Vietnam's history.

Cu Chi Tunnels

Cu Chi Tunnels Vietnam

The miles of mostly hand-dug tunnels just outside of Ho Chi Minh City were turned into a memorial after the conclusion of the Vietnam War. The hidden passages include kitchens, living quarters, and triage centers that travelers can explore.

Cai Rang Floating Market

Cai Rang Floating Market Vietnam

Nearly half of Vietnam's considerably large fishing fleet trolls the waters around the Mekong Delta, one of the most fertile regions in Southeast Asia.

1. Head and Feet: The body is seen as a manifestation of the spirit in Vietnam. The head is the highest and most sacred point of the body, and the feet are the lowest. While traveling in Vietnam, it is best to refrain from touching anyone else's head, and your feet should never be used to point at or touch anything considered sacred or of value.

2. Voice and Veneer: As with most Buddhist cultures, Vietnam's people take care to remain “cool, calm, and collected” at all times, and travelers who do the same will find their vacation much more rewarding.

1. Buddha: Buddha images are highly revered in Vietnam. Travelers should refrain from climbing on statues, and should never sit in front of a Buddha figure unless you can curl your legs to avoid pointing your feet toward the sacred image.

2. Monks: Buddhist monks in Vietnam occupy a highly venerated position in society, and are given the utmost respect. Local customs forbid the monks from touching or accepting gifts directly from women. Monks are also forbidden from shaking hands with anyone. It is important to note these customs are observed both on and off temple grounds throughout the country.

2. Temples: Though Buddhist temples in Vietnam do not enforce dress codes as strictly as temples in other Southeast Asian destinations, it's best to dress in modest clothing when visiting religious structures in Vietnam.

Guest Reviews

Harriet - May - 2015

Thank you so much! We had a fabulous time. I wanted to collect some thoughts from my father before we wrote. He was very impressed.

The guides were great. Nam, our guide in Hanoi was particularly good. They were very attentive, fluent in English and personable. They also took good care of my father - they recognized his limitations and made sure he didn't put himself in a bad situation. This made the trip more enjoyable for me!

Loved the itinerary - we would have made only a couple of small tweaks. In the Mekong Delta (the day trip), they scheduled a horse and buggy ride. It was unnecessary and felt awkward. It felt inauthentic and kind of touristy. We would have skipped it. Also the Marble Mountains, which I loved, was very difficult for my father. Lots of walking, etc. Our guide (Cu) took him separately on the elevator, but still it was a little rocky. He adjusted so it wasn't a problem. But he couldn't really enjoy it.

The hotels were incredible and the guides provided us with good food recommendations. We had a great time!

Thanks again!
