If you want your summer of 2018 to be full of blue skies, beaches and culture, a visit to Vietnam is just what you need. Get a tour guide in Vietnam to take you to the following places and you’ll have memories to last a lifetime.
1. Hoi An
The ancient city of Hoi An looks absolutely stunning in the blue skies of the summer. Explore a myriad of architecture, indulge in a variety of foodie flavours and explore on foot, by bicycle or cyclo. Get some beach time in on the white sand Bang Beach, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, take the public boat to Cham Island. It takes two hours and you’ll discover even more amazing beaches and eat freshly cooked seafood.
2. Da Nang
One of Vietnam’s favourite coastal cities, this is a summertime place full of sandy beaches. There’s more to Da Nang than beach-time though, which is ideal for those who like a bit of variety on their summertime trips. This is the perfect place from which to experience the Hai Van Pass, made even more famous when it was discovered on Top Gear’s Vietnam motorbike special
. The views of Da Nang and the mountains from this mountain pass are spectacular.
A city that is very slightly inland, Hue enjoys good access to the coast, while its locality is found on the banks of the Perfume River. A city that was the former seat of emperors, this is a summertime spot for people who like a little history with their summertime break. When you visit with a tour guide in Vietnam from Mr Linh’s Adventures, you’ll be guaranteed to hear stories and make discoveries most travellers never experience. This is a place of palaces, shrines and riverside reflection.
4. Nha Trang
Another favourite Vietnamese coastal city, Nha Trang is a truly happening place during the summer. Known for vast beaches, spectacular diving sites and clusters of islands not far from the coasts, this is the embodiment of summertime adventures. Some of the islands are nature reserves and one even has an aerial cable car. The city itself has an array of restaurants and bars, with something for those who like to party and places for those who like a little peace and quiet.
5. My Son
When experiencing the best of central Vietnam in the summer, get a little off-the-beaten-track and head inland to My Son. This unusual spot is home to a collection of abandoned Hindu temples. Thought to have been constructed sometime between the 4th and 14th centuries AD, the temples were made with the purpose of worshipping the god, Shiva. The valley My Son is located in what was also formerly known as a site of religious ceremonies for kings, and a burial place for royalty.
