Wow! To be honest, both of them are two of the hottest destination in the Central of Vietnam. Central Vietnam is famous for its central heritage road. If you are interested in history, you’d rather visit Huế as there are quite many ancient sites. But if it is not the case, I would recommend Đà Nẵng. It has a lot of things to do. You can also visit the beautiful beaches and participate in the famous festival of firework.
There are many ways to go to the Central of Vietnam. It also has the international airport in Danang city. You can also book the flight by yourself via internet. Or you can buy a package tour in which the ticket of transportation included. Otherwise, you can visit central of Vietnam via train from HCMC or Hanoi for a night train. And off course, you can get central of Vietnam via bus from nearby province.
With a big plus – a country filled with islands – Vietnam has excellent places where you can take part in Snorkeling and also scuba diving. I would recommend for you would be the Whale Island in Nha Trang – an eco-resort that is not only very beautiful but also friendly with the environment. Other place would be Cham Island, excellent places for snorkeling and scuba diving. There is some snorkeling fun to be had but coral growth is on the lower side. As long as you are okay with less coral viewing, I’m sure these places will not disappoint you.
More like what isn’t there to do! Hoi An is the quintessential Vietnamese town, with colorful buildings draped with bougainvillea, cafes and stunning restaurants lining a bustling river. You can enjoy the unique feeling that you can’t find anywhere except Hội An, specially by night. You can walk or cycle through rice paddies, explore ancient temples, visit local villages, learn more about the Vietnam War, and even take a day trip to Hue, in short Hoi An is one of the main highlights of visiting Vietnam that you cannot miss!
If you are in the fisrt-time in HCM city, I would recommend you 1 day city tour SaiGon and 2 or 3 days tours to Mekong Delta.

To share you a tip, you should ask in the information desk in the airport. It now provide car services with suitable price and also safety. That’s one of those you can trust. Or you can take the “real” taxi like Vinasun, Mailinh…which is one of the big brand here. Otherwise, you can check and book our service of private transfer from HCMC airport to the hotel in city center from here
Honestly, if you are the first-time visitor in HCM city, the traffic can be an unforgettable experience. Believe it or not, there are transport rules but people is always in a hurry and don't seem really interested in following them. You might be surprised with the scene that some people ride their motorbikes on the pavement rather than waiting in the traffic jam. It's a little bit crazy right. But to me – I’m living in Saigon now – this has become one part of our life, a special to normal thing in Saigon.
Trekking seems to be more famous in the northern Vietnam. However, in the South, you can also have great feelings with trekking in Nam Cat Tien National Park (4 hours of drive from Ho chi minh city).
I would recommend these restaurants:
1. Com Chay Nang Tam: 384/40, Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, ward 8, Ditrict 3 (tel: 8483874)
2. Hoa Mai restaurant: Rex Hotel, 141 Nguyen Hue st., District 1 (tel: 8292185)
3. Tib restaurant: 187 Hai Ba Trung st., District 3 (tel: 8297242)
The Mekong Delta reveals its best during dry months from December to May when the sky is crystal clear, the land is lush and the water is calm. From June to September, it may be hot and humid but the greatest variety of tropical fruit is available only in these months.
Let me assure you, malaria is now under control in Vietnam and you do not need to use antimalarial medicine before heading to Mekong Delta. The mosquitos usually appear at night. You do not need to worry too much about this.
Well, doing some homestay tourism is absolutely enjoyable and memorable. It’s a great way to share joys and also hardship of local life. Currently, we are partnering with an authentic homestay in Mekong Delta. Should you want to do it yourself, you may search around Ben Tre and Vinh Long. There are many so-called homestays in touristy Can Tho, yet most of them are actually guesthouses detached from host families, so check it out carefully before you make any settlement.
There is no shortage of beaches in Vietnam and definitely not in South Vietnam. If you are looking something specific, we would recommend the Mui Ne. It is about 200 km from Ho Chi Minh City. It has really picked up in terms of popularity in recent years. There are also others beach which closer to Ho Chi Minh City such as Vũng Tàu, Hồ Tràm, Hồ Cốc, Long Hải and Phuoc Hai.
Well, actually, because traveling around islands in Mekong Delta requires using the boat. If you travel on your own, booking privately might result in higher cost not only the boat but also the homestay, meal... Moreover, the package tour offer a complimentary service with an English speaking guide (any language you want) and many stop-overs in between so that you can easily get chances to see how they manufacture coconut candy, pop rice and other handicraft products. Traveling alone might be troublesome because the local people are not really good at communicating in English. It’s absolutely better if you have a native companion with you. If you are native to Vietnamese language, you can try, though!
