Tourist Places In Vietnam
Nestling comfortably between the South China Sea in the east and Laos and Cambodia to the west, Vietnam is home to beautiful landscapes and dazzling cities. Spread all over the country; there are numerous places to visit in Vietnam.
Here are the best Vietnam places to visit among them all:
1. Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, Hanoi
The capital city of Vietnam, Hanoi houses one of the most visited Vietnam attractions – the mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh himself. Ho Chi Minh is the former president and the first prime minister of Vietnam, and also the founder of Vietnamese Communist Party and the country’s most important political leader. The monumental marble structure in Hanoi is grand, historic and considered as a sacred place, because of Ho Chi Minh’s contribution towards Vietnam’s history. The place has a strict dress code and is guarded 24x7 by the military. The Change of Guards ceremony is worth witnessing.
2. War Remnant Museum, Ho Chi Minh City
Vietnam has been right in the middle of both of the world wars, and then witnessed the famous Vietnam War in the last century. The War Remnant Museum houses various relics of these wars and more from the history. Armoured vehicles, firearms, tanks, infantry and artillery weapons and pictures of those eras are preserved in this museum. True to its name, the museum is really a place where the remnants of the wars fought are kept. It is one of the best Vietnam destinations to visit to know about the history of Vietnamese warfare.
3. My Son Sanctuary
My Son is the name of an archaeological site, rich in historical significance. Surrounded by the lush tropical greenery of Vietnam, My Son is what remains of the ancient capital of the Champa Kingdom. This Cham Era city has multiple temples, built between the 4th century and 14th century AD, dedicated to Hindu gods and goddesses – mostly Shiva. The architectural style of My Son Sanctuary reflects the artistic heritage of multiple Asian cultures – Indian, Chinese, Malay and more. It is a unique and historically enriching part of Vietnam sightseeing.
4. Hoi An
Located in Central Vietnam, this vintage riverside city is one of the must-visit Vietnam points of interest. The layout of this ancient town, dating back to almost 2000 years, is a perfect marriage of the east and the west. Originally a city of the Champa Kingdom, Hoi An has over the years collected footprints of the Chinese, Japanese, Indian and French heritage. Hindu and Buddhist temples, colonial-style wooden houses and the crisscrossing of canals and winding lanes make up the fabric of Hoi An. It is a perfectly serene town to walk around, take in the aesthetic beauty of the place and do some shopping in the quaint shops and boutiques selling clothes, shoes, accessories and quirky souvenirs to take back home.
5. Cham Island
Vietnam tourist attractions are not all about history and culture. The country has some brilliant natural bounty to show off as well. Cham Island, locally known as Cu Lao Cham, is a small but picturesque island in the South China Sea off the eastern coast. It can be accessed from Hoi An easily on a 30 minutes’ speedboat ride. The pristine island is known for scuba diving, cruising, snorkelling and other beach activities.

Temple of Literature In Hanoi
Temple of Literature is considered as one of Hanoi’s most sacred places, not only for religion or spirituality but for education as well. The temple was originally built in 1070 AD as a university dedicated to Confucianism, during the reign of third Ly emperor Ly Thanh Tong. The architecture of the Temple of Literature Hanoi resembles the trademark Chinese style which has been followed for all Confucian temples after his birthplace. It was later renovated in bits and pieces by the Tran dynasty. What stands now is a spectacular example of Indochinese architecture and a reflection of the country’s several imperial histories as well.
Back when classism was at its peak and a norm in the Vietnamese society, only high elites, aristocrats and royals could get the chance to study in this hallowed institution of Temple of Literature. This is where the king and the courtesan’s children took their lessons in literature under Confucian faith. But eventually that passed and the sacred gates of the Temple of Literature in Hanoi were opened up to the commoners as well, thus becoming the first university of Vietnam. To honour every successful graduate of the institution, their names are engraved on the stone stele at the top of the stone turtles.
When one visits the Temple of literature, they can explore five courtyards separately and the engraved names of the graduates. The first and second courtyards are beautiful and well-maintained gardens and the third one has a large pond which is called the Well of Heavenly Clarity. The fourth courtyard is home to a statue of Confucius and the House of Ceremonies, thus called the Sage Courtyard. The last and final one is called Tha...

Trip to VietnamI loved how prompt the travel agent was. She was always available for me when I needed her. I’ve rated low for the hotels because of my experience with them. First hotel: Tu Linh Palace has ants in the room and on my bed even after changing the room. Second hotel: Duc Vuong was super noisy. I was given room on the top floor and at around 12am I woke up because I could hear noise from the rooftop bar. I called the reception and they came to my room at 12am offering room change. I was very tired and had a flight next morning so I just managed and slept off. This has got nothing to do with the travel agent. The travel agent Sophie was wonderful and she even met me and took me out for famous Egg Coffee
Trip to VietnamThanks for a memorable and well planned trip crafted to our pace and choice. All arrangements, hotels, tours and transfers were hassle free, on time, letting us enjoy the vacation without worries.
Trip to Vietnamthe only reason why I have rated 3 stars for hotel is because of the cruise.. cruise was absolutely not as it was shown in the pictures on the app which was a little disappointing. apart from that all the hotel booking were absolutely nice as per my budget and Jenny was there throughout to help with anything needed. thanks for the amazing trip filled with super nice memories!!
Trip to VietnamMy trip was very well organised and both Eric and Megha were very responsive all throughout. I have to specifically mention that Eric was a great organiser. He was always in touch and he personally met me couple of times during my trip to ensure that things are all fine. Due to unavoidable circumstances my previously arranged trip to Fansipan along with cable car tickets got cancelled. But Eric was keen to refund the money and provide me with the option to opt to another tour instead. All in all, I am very happy with the service provided by Eric and the group and will totally recommend them to anyone. All the Best Eric and Thank you very much!
Trip to VietnamThe trip was well organized. In fact it was one of the good trip so far. We got good service from the travel agent as well. Trip to the Halong bay was one of the great experience.
Trip to VietnamOverall our Vietnam trip was amazing. Sophie, our trip manager was really helpful from planning the trip till end of the trip and reply back for all the queries without any delay.But the Sapa to and fro bus travel was really tiring. Except this , We are really satisfied and enjoyed it very well. Thanks Sophie and Team.. :)
Trip to VietnamIt was a well planned and brilliantly executed. Jenny and megha helped me with the planning till the last moment.. hotel rooms were great and even got an upgrade in the later part of the trip. Halong bay cruise is a dream come true.. flamingo cruise was extremely courteous and prompt in service.
Trip to VietnamArrangements are good. Hotel at Hanoi should have been better Angkor wat and Ha long bay Vietnam
Trip to VietnamWe enjoyed our leisure travel to Vietnam. The Vietnamese English guides were profusely communicative and knowledgeable. The food was uniquely delicious and the best. The Vietnamese young girls are predominantly engaged in all businesses in the cities and are dynamic, enthusiastic, lively and hard-working. The French influence is visible in their urban lifestyle and culture. Kate Nguyen, our Go Asia agent in Vietnam was always co-operative and is symbolic of all that the country's urban young girls stand for. The cost of the trip was not as cheap as we presumed. The US dollar and not the Indian rupee is acceptable for purchasing the Vietnamese dongs in exchange. We purchase a US dollar for around 70.5 to 72 rupees in India and exchange the purchased US dollar at the rate of 1$ for 23 Vietnamese dongs.
Trip to VietnamThe trip arranged by Ms.Yen was great and she modified the itinerary according to my requirements. The Hotels were neat and located in main area. The group tours arranged were also great. I would recommend VietTravelLand Services for sure.
