Tet 2017


Where is this Christmas Night?

Although Christmas is not a public holiday in Vietnam, it has been received much recognition from the local residents. From the beginning of December, All over Vietnam are all decorated with Noel’s patterns that create a festive environment helping any expats off being homesick in the night of Christmas. Come to Vietnam travel and looking for interesting destinations in this holiday, the suggestions below will be useful for you.

You are in the North

Halong Bay's seascape of limestone towers is the view everyone's here to see, but the karst connection continues inland, to Ba Be's sprawling lakes and the knobbly topped peaks of Ha Giang, until it segues into the evergreen hills of the northwest highlands.

Not to be outdone by the scenery, northern Vietnam's cultural kaleidoscope is just as diverse. In this heartland of hill-tribe culture, villages snuggle between paddy-field patchworks outside of Sapa and the scarlet headdresses of the Dzao and the Black Hmong's indigo fabrics add dizzying colour to chaotic highland markets.

The twisting ribbon-roads winding north from Hanoi reveal a rural world far removed from Vietnam's horns-a-honking big-city streets. If you're up for some road-tripping, this is the place to do it.

You are in the Central

The geographic heart of the nation, central Vietnam is packed with historic sights and cultural interest, and blessed with ravishing beaches and outstanding national parks. Marvel at Hue and its imperial citadel, royal tombs and excellent street food. Savour the unique heritage grace of riverside jewel Hoi An, and tour the military sites of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ). Check out Danang, fast emerging as one of the nation’s most dynamic cities. Also emerging as a must-visit destination is the extraordinary Phong Nha region, home to three gargantuan cave systems (including the world’s largest cave), and a fascinating war history concealed amid stunning scenery. Enjoy well-earned downtime on the golden sands of An Bang beach or learn to cook central Vietnamese cuisine, the nation’s most complex. With improving highways, and upgraded international airports at Hue and Danang, access to this compelling and diverse part of Vietnam has never been easier.

You are in the South

In Vietnam’s southern highlands the scenery is spectacular and the climate soothing. No wonder the colonial powers sought out Dalat as their Summer retreat. Head towards the coast and the beach lover has a number of options: a busy resort in Nha Trang with some fantastic hotels or the lesser known and quieter resorts of Phan Tiet and Phu Quoc – a tough choice! The tropical south also offers nightlife and an exciting buzz in the former Saigon or for a more relaxing time journey deep into the Mekong Delta and witness a lifestyle and tradition that has changed little over the years. A wonderful part of this versatile country.

With the above suggestions, hope that you will choose the right destination for yourself during the Christmas holiday this year. Come and discover the most interesting things in Vietnam, from culture, people to rich food.
