Top tips for finding the perfect Vietnam hotel
The most popular natural resort for tourists in Vietnam is Ha Long Bay. It’s on the northern coast in the Quang Ninh region, where the country meets the Chinese border. The Royal Halong Hotel makes for a great accommodation choice up here.
Ho Chi Minh City in the southeast region of Vietnam is one of the most historic places to visit in the country, made famous not least by a generation of Hollywood movies from when it was still known only as Saigon.
The small mountain town of Sa Pa has become a popular destination for hikers and mountaineers, thanks to Fansipan, the highest mountain in Indochina that towers over the city. For a comfortable place to stay here, book a room at Phuong Nam Mountain View Hotel.
Vietnam’s most celebrated cathedral is in Ho Chi Minh City, its own Notre Dame Cathedral. Built in neo-Romanesque style, entirely out of brick, its carved tiles have a characteristic coppery colour that makes it stand out in the city. The Park Hyatt Saigon is close by.
For an authentic taste of everyday Vietnamese life, head for the Old Quarter of Hanoi in the area of Hoan Kiem Lake. Things are still done in the time-honoured old ways here, and it’s probably the best place in the country to eat traditional Vietnamese food.
A day trip on the tranquil sea around Hanoi and the other coastal cities is one of Vietnam's biggest attractions. Among the most magical options is a rowboat trip from Ninh Binh, taking you through the Tràng An grotto and caves carved out of the limestone cliffs.
