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.

Her response to your query is generally in one hour with the solutions. Sometimes she just upgrades you without charging extra fees. Once fees are finalize then there is no hidden cost to be given. Everything is written in black and white. Her selection of touring spots, hotels, guides, transportation, airport pick up, drop off, Tour planning is extremely superb. I will advise anyone and everyone to take help of LVP and specially Jenney to plan your tour to Vietnam. Guides ( Dragon, James) real name may be different were good too.

Pradeep Mohan Mathur
Pradeep's 10 days trip to VietnamSophie of Bamboo Hat and Rakhi of Travel Triangle are wonderful professionals. They made our schedule of 10 days to Vietnam and Cambodia well thought and well planned. It had great sight seeing but liesure included inbetween so both me and my wife(74 and 67 years) really enjoyed. Their local tours are well selected. The hotels were very good and at best locations. The tour guides were lively, humorous, informed and above all good time keepers. Sophie booked our internal flights (HCM-Danang-Hanoi-Siem Reap) most suitably timed so that we could get good break and rest too. This trip of ours was most enjoyable, relaxing and reassuring. My best wishes to Sophie and Rakhi. Keep it up.
