The Best Things To Do In Vietnam

We compiled the best thing to do in Vietnam. From the world’s largest cave to Unesco World Heritage sites to enjoy. Vietnam has an incredible amount to offer. Furthermore, here’s the Ideal top 7 things to do in Vietnam. Here is the best thing to do in Vietnam.

1. Homestay in SAPA

The homestay was the most wonderful experience I did in Vietnam.The Homestay we did was a 2 and half day, staying in a house with the Black Hmong Tribe. The trek to the house I thought was alike about 2 hours walk, but it was 5 hours on the hot sunny day plus walking up the mountain. Fansipan is the mountain in SAPA. That is a mountain in Vietnam, the highest in Indochina, at 3,143 meters.

With honesty, you get a track with a Black Human woman and then get to stay with one of the tribal families. They shared their dinner with the whole family and it was fabulous. It was truly magical to see the differences and similarities in our lives. The next day you get another long walk to a waterfall and then dine with family and breakfast. It was just a must-do thing if you go to Vietnam.

2. Ride the Hai Van Pass on a motorbike

The Hai Van Pass has become famous. As it was featured in an episode of BBC Top Gear. It is a road that is between Hue and Hoi An. It is a must-do with motorbikes. As if you take one of the bus rides you will not get to stop and take in the amazing views you will be seeing. I had to ride as I was on the back of the motorbike as my brother was driving it so I did was just taking in the views as we climb up the mountain and descend from it.

There are a few stops on the way that you need to take so leave early in the morning, so you can have time to stop. You will need to go to the elephant falls on the way. As it takes you about 6 to 8 hours with a few stops on the way to get to Hoi An. Give yourself a full day, so leave early.

3. Explore one of the wonders of the world’s Halong Bay.

This one of the most beautiful places in the world that I have been to. Situated with thousands of limestone Islands. That sits within the bay. Halong Bay is best enjoyed from one of the many boat cruises. Whether you chose 5-star luxury or a backpackers party cruise, you will still get to see the wonders it has to offer. There are over 1000s of Islands that surround Halong Bay.

We chose Vietnam Backpackers Hostel. They offer a Halong bay cruise that is a 2 and half day stay in their Private Island and day cruise trip that was meant to be a drinking cruise but you don’t have to drink and just enjoy the scenery. The cruise stops for a kayaking trip. The place is full of history and during the Vietnam War, there was a cave that was turned into a hospital. Halong Bay is a must-see place.

4. Stroll around Hoi An town.

Hoi An Ancient Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. The town is a former port city. It has an iconic Japanese covered bridge allaying you cross the river.

The town at night comes to life at night and it is full of color. The town is full of paper lanterns all over the town and you can buy them. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars/clubs along the riverfront and they have the famous why not bar and there are a few of them around Vietnam.

5. Walk around and get to meet the locals.

One thing to do in Vietnam Hanoi is to just go for a stroll around the CIty.  Vietnam was voted friendliest city by the Lonely Planet. One of the best times I had was when I was in Da Lat, It was raining very heavily and I only like 6 hours there, so did not get to see a lot, but we found a coffee shop and stayed there for a few hours until it stopped raining and it was nice talking to Vietnam’s owner.

Getting out and walking away from the tourist areas is wonderful. As you get to see the real Vietnamese culture and how they live, which I love to do when visiting a place.

6. Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park

In addition to this Phong Nha-Ke Bang is a wonderful place for landscape lovers. in addition to this, it a UNESCO World Heritage site. That is home to the world’s largest cave Son Doing that is 200m in height, there is a 2-day tour inside the cave where you camp inside. It was one of the best Vietnam travel tours I did,

Paradise Cave is the only cave where u are allowed to walk around. That was the only cave I went to as it took us about 3 hours to find where the booking office is to book the tickets for the caves. During the ‘American/Vietnam’ war, the caves were used as hiding places. Therefore, tIt was used for goods, hospitals and ammunition dumps. It is hard to get around as there are no taxis in the town so you need a moped or booked tour. Driving around was beautiful as you see hundreds of caves from very small ones that are too small to fit into huge ones.

7. Cu Chi Tunnels

Finally, one thing to do in Vietnam Ho Chi Minh is to go to Cu Chi tunnels. The Cu Chi Tunnels are a war museum. Offering visitors a sneak peek at the underground life of Viet Cong-era soldiers. Comprising more than 120km of tunnels. The Viernes people used the tunnels to hide and are where they lived.

They had hospitals and schools in the tunnels. As a result, the Vietnamese are very small, so that they could fit all that in the tunnels.  The tour is great, as you get to see a real tunnel and a replica one. Developed so that the average person can fit in. As well as this, get to see the traps.  They made and you can pay to try out some meals.  That the soldiers had underground. We did not know you could not do that wish I did when I went.

Read the full Vietnam trip from the start, To find out in detail. What I did and where I went. 


  1. I love your post. All the tips and suggested places look amazing! I want to visit Vietnam for a long time already, hopefully I will do that next year. In my home country (Czech Republic) we have quite a big Vietnamese community and I got to know a lot about their culture and love their food. Can’t wait to visit also all those fascinating spots in their country. Btw, I love your pictures! 🙂

  2. I went to Vietnam a couple of years ago with a friend and their family, who are Vietnamese, but I didn’t get to do some of these cool things. I feel like I need to go back because your experiences sound really lovely.

  3. Vietnam is so beautiful! The national park and Halong Bay would be wonderful to photograph. And driving a motorbike along the pass would be an adventure.

  4. If јob security iis excessive on your liist of
    priorities, that is one other factor thats nnot provided
    bby freelancing. Many people have to be assured of
    reɡular income, at a charge that they can depend on, so ass to keeр their
    bills and everyday dwelling expeses as much as date.

    Freelancing wont present the job and earnings safety that youd
    hɑve from being on the ԝorkers of a regulation firm.

  5. What a beautiful country! I’ve never been, but I’ll definitely add it it my list. Great pictures! It looks like you really got the full cultural experience.

  6. I was in Vietnam in 2014, but there’s a couple of places listed on this article (SAPA and the National Park) that I didn’t get to visit. I need to go back there! Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

  7. My first thought when I would visit Vietnam is to eat at every restaurant possible! 😀 I just love vietnamese cuisine! But of course, it will not be complete without going about the historical city, thanks for this, I won’t go gaining 10 kilos after eating all the cha gio and bun bo around. Teehee! 🙂

  8. I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  9. This is the right blog for anyone who hopes to
    find out about this topic. You understand a whole lot its
    almost tough to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that’s
    been discussed for years. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  10. Someone essentially lend a hand to make critically articles I’d state.
    This is the first time I frequented your website page and so far?

    I amazed with the research you made to make this particular publish incredible.
    Fantastic task!

  11. Thanks for sharing superb informations. Your web-site is very cool. I’m impressed by the details that you have on this web site. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject. Bookmarked this web page, will come back for extra articles. You, my friend, ROCK! I found just the information I already searched everywhere and simply couldn’t come across. What an ideal web-site.

  12. Located about 70 km from Da Nang city, located in Duy Phu commune, Duy Xuyen district, Quang Nam province, My Son Sanctuary appears with an architectural complex of many Champa temples and extremely toxic architecture. unique. Forgotten for a long time up to centuries, it was not discovered in 1885 and in 1999 this place was selected by UNESCO as a world heritage as a unique evidence of civilization. Asia has disappeared. If you are a tourist who likes to explore and learn about ancient culture, this is a place worth exploring.
