Vietnam Vacation Spots

Vietnam Vacation Spots #1:

Sent in by Duloc of North Bay - When I think of tourist spots in Vietnam only one place comes to mind – Halon Bay. If I had the privilege to travel to Vietnam again I would definitely visit Halong Bay. Halong Bay is one of the natural wonders of the world.

Halong Bay is a breath taking and amazing site to see in person. Halong Bay contains over three thousand pointy and jagged rocks. In the emerald green waters lie limestone islands that are amazing to see.

Famous as a World Heritage Site as rendered by UNESCO, the Ha Long Bay lies within the coastal area of Quang Ninh province, which is situated 180 km east of Hanoi.The entire water surface of this Bay is approximately 1500 square km large.

The most distinguishing feature of the place is the numerous limestone karsts and isles seen throughout the region in various sizes and shapes.

The bay consists of a dense cluster of limestone monolithic islands. Many of these have dense vegetation & it is a peculiar but refreshing sight to see them heading out of the water. Several of the islands are hollow, with enormous caves.

The beaches that I saw in Halong Bay are some of the best I have seen and I have been to Mauritius & Fiji. The abundance of lakes inside the limestone islands makes Halong one of the best places to explore in the tourism world.

The best way to see this spectacular area is to take a cruise or a boat out to the water. The jagged rocks are amazing and many of them have caves where you can go right through them.

If you are looking for nice Vietnam vacation spots, Halong Bay is wonderful to see and I would not pass up on seeing it.

Vietnam Vacation Spots #2:

Sent in by Duong of San Francisco - My vacation idea suggestion is a beautiful place named Cuo Phuong National Park in Vietnam. It is situated at 140KM to the south of Hanoi. It is the first national park in Vietnam. The park was founded in 1962. It supports wide variety of floral species, patches of primeval forest.

You will have a good experience visiting nature surrounded by many living creatures. You can see more trees; if you are botanist you can research over there. And also you can stay there as you are provided with guest house which is also nature oriented.

Also you can see trees that have been brought from India, Burma, Borneo, and from many places. Cuo Phuong National Park is a nice place to commune with nature. Nearby you have the ancient town of Hoi An, you can visit there too.

Sent in by Ursala of San Diego - A great vacation idea in VietNam is Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon. It is located in the southern part of the country on the banks of the Sai Gon River and close to the South China Sea. Ben Thanh Market is one of the largest and main hubs for shopping.

Stop in the food court for a great taste of Vietnamese food. Find your evening meal or simply look for items to take back to friends and family. There is everything that you could possibly need in this robust and genuine market place.

Ho Chi Minh City is a good Vietnam travel destination. The city is place of mix cultural, local and Chinese. Along the way to Ho Chi Minh City will find villages which will introduce you to Vietnamese culture.
