Shopping malls in Ho Chi Minh City are the best places to be (after its vibrant street markets) for a satisfying shopping experience during your holiday. Easily accessible on foot or cyclo, these shopping malls are also conveniently located near five-star hotels and popular landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Benh Than Market, and Saigon Central Post Office. While cosmetics, apparel, accessories, and kitchenware are sold at fixed prices, you can find an array of international brands and renowned local designs within these shopping malls. There are also plenty of dining outlets and entertainment centres to fill your time and tummy after you’ve shopped to your heart’s content.

The jewel in Vietnam's crown, Halong Bay retains its luster despite grumbles of eco-vandalism and overcrowding. The sight of the scattered jungle-covered outcrops of karst rising up from the emerald water is unforgettable.

While it's true that the bay has become something of a victim of its own popularity -- many tours are predictable and yours will be one of hundreds of cameras trying to capture the majesty of the scenery at sunset -- it remains an essential stop on any Vietnam itinerary.

4. Sapa adventure tour

The towering mountains in the far north of Vietnam on the border with China offer some of the country's most compelling visual and cultural stimuli. The hills around Sapa are home to a range of minorities, including Hmong, Dao, Giay, Pho, Lu and Tay, and the town serves as an ideal base for trekking among the tribes.

The scenery is awe-inspiring, with Vietnam's highest mountain, Fansipan (3,142 meters), dominating the view. Sapa itself has a thriving tourism industry, meaning that it's easy enough to hunker down at a bar or in a café on one of the frequent foggy days.

5. Peaceful beauty of Hoi An ancient town

The UNESCO-protected ancient town is by far Vietnam's most tourist-friendly destination. Even those who don't particularly like the rest of the country usually come away with a good impression.

The narrow streets near the Thu Bon River are lined with beautifully preserved merchant houses, while narrow alleys lead to hidden temples and garden restaurants. Motor vehicles are banned from the old quarter, making this one place in Vietnam you can take a leisurely stroll without fear of being hit or honked at by an impatient motorist.

Vietnam travel full of emotions from the gentle relaxation trip to the adventure journey. Have you prepared for your visit to Vietnam yet?
