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.

Located in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, One Pillar Pagoda is regarded to be one of the most significant temples of the country.

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...
