There are many different opinions of when the coronavirus situation will end in Vietnam or for the world. But, we know one thing for sure, with the recent news of potential vaccines, that this whole exhausting scenario will end.
Looking on the bright side, when the hardship is over, what will be there for us?
There will definitely be new job opportunities, new career paths, you can go out to see your friends and loved ones freely again, and what’s even more exciting than ever before is that you can travel again. While you may consider traveling abroad on your next trip, you should keep in mind that there are always many places in Vietnam that are worth visiting or rediscovering, and you can also do that to help local tourism recover after a long hibernation. Below are the 3 top places to visit in Vietnam, after COVID-19 is gone.
The “most worth living city in Vietnam” – Da Nang was hit hardest by the second wave of COVID-19 in Vietnam. Right before that, the city had attracted a lot of tourists from all over Vietnam and we believe that it can do the same in the future.
You may already know that Da Nang is famous for its spectacular bridges, the beaches. But there’s so much more. You can visit many attractions and take part in many activities in the Son Tra peninsula: marvel at the giant Quan Am statue in Linh Ung pagoda, view the whole city from Ban Co peak, explore the Son Tra mountain with forest paths filled with monkeys, try paragliding, diving ….
Da Nang is also known for its great local cuisine and seafood. You can find many local restaurants that offer good foods at very reasonable prices anywhere in Da Nang.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site Hoi An belongs to a neighboring province of Da Nang – Quang Nam. It was a tourism hotspot long before COVID-19, attracted people from all over the world.
The place is worth visiting whether you travel solo, with your partner, as a group of friends or with your family. Other than the ancient town – a must-visit attraction, Hoi An offers you a wide range of activities and attractions. If you are interested in culture, craftsmanship, … you can visit the Kim Bong carpentry village, Thanh Ha pottery village, the fishing villages, the silk village, the coconut village, and many more.
There are many good coffee shops filled with thoughtful touches in Hoi An that you would want to visit during your stay there such as U Café, Phin Coffee - Succulent garden, Sound Of Silence Coffee Shop, Rosie’s Café, etc.
People love Hoi An for its vibe, a special vibe that makes you feel relaxed and calm. You may won’t know what it exactly is until you experience it yourself.
Ho Chi Minh city
Don’t let the bad reviews and comments of Ho Chi Minh city, also known as Saigon, cloud your judgement. Some people don’t have high regards of Saigon as an ideal tourist destination, but in reality, the city has more than enough for you to explore and enjoy, short-term or short-term.
People from many other places in Vietnam have been coming to Saigon to work, to live for a long time and that makes the culture-rich city even better in many aspects. You can easily get to taste foods originated from the northern side or central of Vietnam right in Saigon, and they are great.
In Saigon, you can see many skyscrapers, shopping centers, but what makes it really interesting is the life on the streets, the urban and street culture. On the ‘hems’ (alleyways) and streets of Saigon, you can feel the breath of life very clearly.
With that said, Saigon has many attractions such as art galleries, museums, parks, historical landmarks … that you can spend days and days to discover.
