If you've landed into Hanoi, head south to Halong Bay, where you can explore this spectacular kasrt seascape. Travel to the central, you see to the imperial city of Hue before driving to ancient town of Hoi An. Further south, your exit point from the country is likely to be by air from Ho Chi Minh City, unless you would like to travel through the remarkable Mekong Delta up to Cambodia. Before you think about leaving, though, you might want to pause at one of Vietnam’s gorgeous beaches - we especially love Quy Nhon in the centre, Phu Quoc, Con Dao and Mui Ne in the south.
Alternatively, you may wish to spend longer in the north, meeting some of Vietnam’s minority tribes in Sapa, remote Ha Giang, or in pretty Mai Chau. Join in with traditional rural life in Ninh Binh, or hike the well-signposted trails of Cuc Phuong National Park. There is also the less travelled Central Highlands of Vietnam to consider - with Dalat as the ideal entry point to the region, which usually captivates attention for a day or two before moving on nearby sleeping towns of Kon Tum or Buon Ma Thuot.
