10 Top Tourist Attractions in Vietnam. Most travelers to Vietnam are attracted by
the country’s wonderful natural beauty: From the green rice fields in the north to
the fascinating bustle of the Mekong Delta in the south. Vietnam however is also a country with a long
history and ancient traditions. It has many historic attractions and old temples. An overview of the most amazing tourist attractions
in Vietnam. 10: Nha Trang. Nha Trang is Vietnam’s most popular seaside
resort town located along the second most beautiful bays in the country. It features beautiful beaches with fine and
clean sand and clear ocean water with mild temperatures. The city has about 300,000 inhabitants and
is more lively and urban in character than other beach destinations like Mui Ne and Phu
Quoc. It’s also the scuba diving center of Vietnam. 9: Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network
of connecting underground tunnels located about 40 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City
(Saigon). The tunnels were used by Viet Cong guerrillas
as hiding spots during the Vietnam War, and were the base of operations for the Tết
Offensive in 1968. The tunnels have become a popular tourist
attraction, and visitors are invited to crawl around in the safer parts of the tunnel system. 8: Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta is the region in southern
Vietnam where the Mekong River approaches and empties into the sea. It is a very rich and lush area, covered with
rice fields, that produces about half of the total of Vietnam’s agricultural output. Subsequently, life in the Mekong Delta revolves
much around the river, and all the villages are often accessible by river rather than
by road. 7: Mui Ne. The formerly little-inhabited beach south
of the fishing village of Mui Ne has seen some serious development in the last 15 years. Due to strong sea breezes it is a popular
destination in Vietnam for kite- and windsurfing. No trip to Mui Ne is complete without a trip
to the famous sand dunes located a short distance north of the town. The vast sandy expanse provide some great
panoramic views especially during sunset. 6: Sa Pa Terraces. Sa Pa is a town in northwest Vietnam not far
from the Chinese border. Rice terraces can be found in the Muong Hoa
valley between Sa Pa town and the Fansipan Mountain, on a backdrop of thick bamboo woodlands. Local mountain people, the Hmong, Giay, Dao,
Tay, and Giay, grow rice and corn on these paddy terraces, along with vegetables. 5: Phu Quoc. Located in front of the Cambodia coast, Phu
Quoc is the largest island in Vietnam. Phu Quoc is what Phuket would be if it hadn’t
been overrun by development. The island features pristine tropical forests,
undamaged coral reefs and great beaches. One of its beaches, named Bai Dai (Long Beach),
was chosen by the ABC News as one of five beautiful and clean beaches. Phu Quoc is famous for producing the best
nuoc mam or fermented fish sauce in the world. 4: Hoi An. This fishing-village-turned-tourist-attraction
is situated on the coast of the South China Sea. Hoi An has been an international port from
the 16th century although the serious shipping business has long since moved to the city
of Da Nang. The heart of the city is still the Old Town,
full of winding lanes and Chinese-styled shops. It is sometimes called the “Venice of Vietnam”
because of the narrow canals that cut through part of the town. 3: Hoan Kiem Lake (Hanoi). Located in the historical center of Hanoi,
Hoan Kiem Lake is one of the major scenic spots in the city and serves as the locals’
favorite leisure spot. Hoan Kiem means “returned sword”, and
the name comes from a legend in which King Le Loi was given a magical sword by the gods,
which he used to drive out the invading Chinese. Later he returned the sword to the Golden
Turtle God in the lake. 2: Thien Mu Pagoda (Hue). With seven stories, the Thien Mu Pagoda in
Hue is the tallest pagoda in Vietnam. The pagoda overlooks the Perfume River and
is regarded as the unofficial symbol of the former imperial capital. The temple was built in 1601 during the rule
of the Nguyễn Lords. The initial temple was very simply constructed,
but over time it was redeveloped and expanded with more intricate features. 1: Ha Long Bay. Ha Long Bay is situated in north Vietnam round
a 120 kilometer long coast line and is literally translated as “Bay of Descending Dragons”. The top tourist attraction in Vietnam, Ha
Long Bay features thousands of islands, each topped with thick jungle vegetation, forming
a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. Several of the islands are hollow, with enormous
caves, others islands include lakes and some support floating villages of fishermen.
