About Vietnam Destinations

Vietnam, the Land of the Ascending Dragons, is the easternmost country in the Indochina peninsula. Bordered by Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos in the west and south-west, China in the north and the South China Sea on the rest of the sides, Vietnam is gradually growing into a major South-East Asian tourist destination. Vietnam tourism has been on the rise for the last few years, along with the country’s economic development.

The history of Vietnam is as dynamic as its natural topography. For the first millennium in the AD era, Vietnam City was under the Imperial rule of China. Once again it was captured by French forces in the early to mid-19th century when colonialism was at its peak. During the world wars, especially the second one, Vietnam became a hotspot for raging warfare because of its location. The Japanese occupation during the 1940s had a long-drawn effect which led to both the Indochina wars.

But despite being such a war-ravaged country in the past, it is now quite peaceful and also a very beautiful location for destination tours. The best part about Vietnam is its eclectic nature. The places to visit or the things to do, or the shopping and seaside destinations are all different feels and flavors. The main cities of the country are Hanoi, which is the capital and Ho Chi Minh, which is named after the country’s most important leader.

Another place which often goes unmentioned but is equally important for Vietnam is the Mekong Delta. This place is the lifeline of the entire southern Vietnam and also witness to many historical events. Cruising down the Mekong River, enjoying the slow deltaic pace of the stream and the lush green fields around, is an experience that defines Vietnam to a large extent.


But while rural Vietnam is all about fishing and paddy fields, the urban fabric is as good as any South Asian city one can think of.

There are sky-high buildings and shopping malls, there are places for gourmet dining and impulsive shopping, and there are way too many points of interest for sightseeing. Both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have museums devoted to war stories, anecdotes, events and physical matters like weapons and artillery. The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Hanoi is a must-see monument, if you visit Vietnam.

The beaches of Vietnam are equally beautiful. A Vietnam trip is incomplete without visiting at least some of the beaches that the country has to offer. Nha Trang and Phu Quoc Islands are the paradise destinations for the best beaches. With the crystal blue or green water, warm white stretches of sand and coconuts or palms lining the coastline, these beaches are just perfect for a day of relaxation. One can try out the various water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling and waterboarding as well if they are comfortable with it.

Another very important water location in Vietnam is the Halong Bay. Its emerald green surface and the interruptions by limestone karst structures here and there is an absolute delight to explore. Halong Bay is one of the main incentives for Vietnam tourism from India. One look at the landscape of the bay and the reason behind its irresistible charm can be understood easily.

 

For the adrenaline junkies, adventure activities are right at hand too. Apart from the usual trekking and water diving sports, Vietnam has this unique adventure where one can dive into enormously deep caves and caverns in the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

By Air

India to Vietnam distance by air is around 3000 km more or less from any part of India. There are frequent Delhi to Vietnam flights or Mumbai to Vietnam flights. The three airports in Vietnam that receive international flights are Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi, Da Nang Airport in Da Nang and Tan Son Nhat Airport in Ho Chi Minh City. A direct from India’s capital Delhi to Vietnam would take around 7 hours 20 minutes. Most flights make stops at other important South Asian cities like Bangkok and Singapore. The official carrier of the country is Vietnam Airlines. Other international carriers operating in Asia like Singapore Airlines, Air Asia, Air India, Cathay Dragon, Thai Airlines and China Airlines also fly to the Vietnamese airports from various Indian cities.

By Train

China is the only country from where Vietnam can be reached by train. There is no Vietnam train from India. But if one really wants to travel via railway to Vietnam, they have to first fly to Beijing or Nanning in China. From Nanning, the train departs every day at 6:05 PM and takes 11 hours 25 minutes to reach Gia Lam Railway Station in Hanoi. The other one leaves Beijing at 4:10 PM every Thursday and Sunday. This Vietnam route takes longer than the one from Nanning – 37 hours 21 minutes and reaches the same station in Vietnam. The drawback of traveling by the train route is that the time taken is way more than most tourists are ready to afford. From Beijing, it takes more than 2 nights at a stretch. It is not the sensible mode of transport to take, especially for those who are traveling from the southern parts of India. Chennai to Vietnam flights are a much faster option than traveling to China and then taking a train. However, if enjoying a train ride and savoring the scenery along the train route is what one is looking for, then they should go ahead and make the journey.

By Road

It is really difficult to reach Vietnam from India via the road. It is not impossible, but it would take more than 100 hours to cover the distance of 5365 km altogether from Delhi to Hanoi, Vietnam. Moreover, one has to cross multiple international borders – Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia – and then get to Vietnam, which means as many numbers of documents. But it can be easily reached from Laos or Cambodia. There are six border crossing points from Laos and three in Cambodia, which one can cross in their cars. There are Vietnam bus services from Laos and Cambodia as well. While traveling by road, keep the documents and visas ready. The authorities do not provide them at the borders.
