what to do & see in Vietnam?
08-10-2012 20:52 #2
I was there this time last year for 2 weeks. I was very lucky having an old school friend who lives there as a tour guide.
Firstly I preferred Hoi Noi over Ho Chi Minh. The French inspired fusion with Vietnamese cuisine was amazing. We chose the more up market expensive but totally amazing restaurants and had the best food of my life.
We wondered the streets and just experienced the beautiful culture.
We took a 1 night trip up to Halong Bay for a Junk boat tour which was well worth it. I think some tour companies are better than others but it is cheaper to book while you are there not here.
We went to an Island resort on the coast but my girlfriend frequents Hoi An and recommends there.

It depends on what you like and if you are taking children. I have been all through Vietnam and I have to say Hanoi was our least favourite place. I found the people north Vietnam no where near as friendly as those in the south. I really like ho chi min city. My fav place though was Hoi An. Great for kids also and a beautiful beach. Halong bay is lovely but not great with kids as there isn't much there for them but really spectacular if it's just yourself and partner. There are loads of things to do and see. Markets, war museums, concerts, site seeing, beaches, temples, villages etc. all comes down to preference. Be prepared for some wild smells and a cultural shock. It's an amazing place. But also keep a very close eye on children if you are taking them.
