What makes Vietnam tourism attractive to tourists?

Reasons to travel to Vietnam – where should one even start? The nature, history and culture don’t even scratch the surface of the draw that this country has for travellers. Vietnam is slowly emerging as a hot travel destination, though as a whole it does not always top the “must see” travel lists – and this is surprising. So, to help you travellers who are truly missing out on the splendour of this country, here are just a few reasons why you should travel to Vietnam as soon as you can.

Stunning scenery

Vietnam has plenty of spectacular beauty and natural landscape with sites honoured by UNESCO such as Cham Island, the ancient town of Hoi An, Phong Nha – Ke Bang cave and Halong Bay. Any well planned tour itinerary includes exotic and beautiful sights ranging from ancient tombs and temples to rural countryside.

Besides the more famous places, Vietnam has plenty of hidden treasures. Spectacular majestic terraced fields in the Northern mountains, Dalat has a unique climate and special architecture that is located next to strawberry gardens and windy pine forests and appears quite like a European city. Thai Binh province is a coastal region that gives a peaceful, pleasant feeling and gives access to Keo Pagoda, which is the one of the most fascinating wooden structures in Vietnam.

The History

Vietnam’s history is one of its main draws for tourists. The country is filled with educational sites for visitors that documents the Vietnam war and other historic events. Start in Saigon and visit the emotion inducing war museum and imperial palace. You can see old war planes scattered around the city and visit the Cu Chi war tunnels to get an insider look at what the war was like for many soldiers. Scattered around the city are war monuments and in Hanoi, you can even visit the final resting place of Ho Chi Minh himself. Whether you like history or not, there is no doubt that you will learn a thing or two just by being in the country.

Fantastic cuisine

Vietnamese cuisine is popular all over the world so why not come taste it at its source. Women somehow whip up delicious meals out of the contents of a single bag on the side of the road and tiny street stalls fill the alleyways offering up papaya salads and the popular meat and noodle soup, Pho. Fried and fresh spring rolls are served up at the markets and the amount of delicious dipping sauces can make your head spin. Try the giant seafood filled pancakes, the grilled corn on the cob or the warm banana cake in a coconut milk sauce.

Perfect destination for coffee 

Vietnam is the 2nd largest coffee producer in the world which makes it a perfect destination for the coffee lovers. Most of the major towns and cities have a welcoming coffee shop on every corner. Plus, there is a rich variation in the types of coffee. Vietnam goes far beyond the traditional brew of coffee and milk. One of the more unique variations includes yoghurt coffee. Yoghurt is a popular and local culinary tradition and served as a topping for a variety of dishes and even for coffee. Rich and creamy yoghurt pairs wonderfully well with black coffee. The undisputed centre for the café culture in Vietnam remains in Hanoi, but there are still plenty of sidewalk cafes and modern-style coffee shops up and down the country.

Travel-friendly budget 

Sometimes Vietnam feels like it was made for travellers. With increasing dependence on the tourism industry for their economy, the Vietnamese have set up the country to be as travel friendly as possible. English is widely spoken in the cities and around the famous sites and restaurants in touristy places almost always have English menus. Most places are one stop shops for everything you need. Stay in a hotel and you will be given the options and resources to rent transportation, book sightseeing tours and get directions and recommendations for a great place to eat. No matter what you need to know or acquire, you can have access to it within minutes.
