Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay, situated in northeast Vietnam, is known for its green waters and thousands of towering islands which are topped by luscious rainforests. The waters are frequented by boat tours and kayaking expeditions and are a breath-taking place to lose yourself amongst the Vietnamese waters. The region is super popular for a range of activities like scuba diving, rock climbing and hiking, particularly in the mountainous region of Cat Ba Park.

 

Hanoi

Hanoi is the bustling capital city of Vietnam and is famous for its centuries-old architecture and rich culture. You can experience the blend of Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences that make the city so different and unique. At the heart, you will find the chaotic Old Quarter, where its narrow streets seem to have no sense but are arranged around the hustle and bustle of trade life. There are many little temples, gardens, parks and scenic spots to enjoy too as well a range of cultural centres and museums. 

 

Hue

Hue is a city that lies in central Vietnam that was the seat of the Nguyen Dynasty emperors and the national capital from 1802 to 1945. Due to this, it is rich in its culture, history and architecture. A major attraction that is a must-see is the impressively vast, 19th-century Dai Noi Citadel, surrounded by an actual moat and stone walls. It circles the Imperial City, which is filled with palaces and shrines known better as the Forbidden Purple City which was once the emperor’s home.

 

Hoi An

Hoi An is a city located on Vietnam’s central coast and is most famous for its Ancient Town, which is sliced through by an intricate network of canals. As it was a former port city it is seen as the melting-pot and that is reflected in its history and in its architecture, with a diverse mix of eras and styles. Walking through the city will feel like you are meandering through different centuries and cultures. 

 

Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City which is still more commonly known as Saigon is the most populous and largest city of Vietnam. It is the business and financial central hub of Vietnam, with a prominent history that goes back hundreds of years.
