Ideal places for Tet holiday


There are many famous destinations for your holiday from the North to the South of Vietnam. Here is the top 5 places that are suggested for your holiday following the travel guide.

>>Ideal campsites for a New Year’s trip

Sa Pa Town

The famous highlands town is well far away from busy cities – some 376 kilometers from Hanoi, and up to 1,600 meters above sea level.

In recent years, it is often hit by cold spells over the first months of the year, thus being fully covered with snow. It is a highly-appreciated change for visitors coming from other places where it is always warm and sunny.

Snow, however, can not hide blooming peach blossoms around the town. The flower’s pink color looks strikingly beautiful on the white backdrop.

Pure and romantic, Sa Pa is surely a place that should not be missed. Not to mention that many of local foods like grilled eggs and sweet potatoes are simply much tastier when eaten in the cold.

Moc Chau Plateau

Also located on the northern highlands, Moc Chau Plateau in Son La Province is not as chilly as Sa Pa. But, it is similarly beautiful during the ongoing season of peach and plum blossoms.

Many Hanoians choose the plateau, as it is closer than Sa Pa, given that it is less than 200 kilometers from the capital city. It means that they can celebrate Tet with their families for one or two days before heading to this haven.

Da Nang – Hoi An

For those who prefer sunny beaches to cold mountains, Da Nang City and Hoi An Town in the central region are among the best destinations. However, since the places also boast many historic sites, they are more suitable for long trips.

Another reason for you visit Hoi An this Tet: admission to the ancient town is free from February 18-21, which are the New Year’s Eve and the first three days of the new year.

Nha Trang

The resort town in the central province of Khanh Hoa is yet another ideal place for beach lovers. It is, however, busier than Da Nang and Hoi An with many highly-entertaining resorts like Vinpearl Land.

Nha Trang is well known for its beaches and scuba diving and has developed into a popular destination for international tourists, attracting large numbers of backpackers, as well as more affluent travelers on the south-east Asia circuit; it is already very popular with Vietnamese tourists, with Nha Trang Bay widely considered as among the world’s most beautiful bays. Tourists are welcomed to participate in the Sea Festival, held biennially.

If you love history and architecture, Hue is definitely a great choice you. Hue is well known for its historic monuments, which have earned it a place in UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. The seat of the Nguya��n emperors was the Imperial City, which occupies a large, walled area on the north side of the Perfume River. Inside the citadel was a forbidden city where only the emperors, concubines, and those close enough to them were granted access; the punishment for trespassing was death. Today, little of the forbidden city remains, though reconstruction efforts are in progress to maintain it as a historic tourist attraction.

As the former capital of Vietnam, the city boasts a world-famous complex of royal tombs and ancient pagodas among many historic buildings.

The quiet city is known for its peaceful and somewhat holy atmosphere.
