In Vietnam, do not forget to cool off in Halong Bay and explore the marine limestone islands. You can traverse the clear water at Halong Bay on a boat and then kayak to a fishing village.

A visit to the My Son Sanctuary will be a mesmerizing one. The temple is dedicated to Shaivism and is unbelievably sophisticated in its layout.

Follow the Thu Bon River to reach the old town of Hoi An. It is a place to realize the confluence of diverse cultures that developed here. The Hue Imperial City had the blow of the Vietnam war; however, the city’s soaring palaces, ramparts, trenches, and breath-taking temples are architectural heaven.

The Vietnam travel packages of reputed travel organizations have these places covered. They arrange for a comfortable and safe journey and the assistance of professional guides to enable understanding the importance of the place visited.

Street food to enjoy

It is an experience to have a dragon boat ride on the Perfume River to Tu Duc’s tomb in Hue Imperial City. The boat ride is an ideal way to know and feel the country. It is also a must that you have a junk boat journey in Halong Bay and watch the karst landscape and visit the Cai Rang floating market.
