15 Best Places to Visit in Vietnam
This list takes into account not only Vietnam’s incredible natural beauty but also its more rural side. Some of the places on this list are well-known for being world-renowned and UNESCO protected. Others are a little less known and are a must when choosing where to go in Vietnam.
Located in the far north of the country, Sapa is first on the list. One of the more spectacular places to see, Sapa is an absolute must visit destination. Surrounded by incredible beauty on all sides, the rice paddies of Sapa are world-famous, and are a vision that I’ll never forget.
Situated high in the Hoang Lien Son Mountains, Sapa is often used as a starting point for trekking tours through the area. Mountain bike tours are also very popular here, with routes that take you through rice paddies, past stunning waterfalls, and around local villages.
It’s easy to reach the high hills of Sapa. Buses travel from all over the north of Vietnam to this little village. It is even possible to catch a bus from Laos, the neighbouring country, all the way to Sapa.
All in all, when choosing where to go in Vietnam, this diamond of the north should most definitely be on everybody’s travel list.
