Hạ Long Bay, Quảng Ninh, Vietnam

What can you expect:

Hạ Long Bay, in northeast Vietnam, is known for its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. Junk boat tours and sea kayak expeditions take visitors past islands named for their shapes, including Stone Dog and Teapot islets. 

You can see how nature can sculpt in a special way in Ha in Long Bay in Vietnam. In this elongated bay are hundreds of limestone monoliths that rise spectacularly from the ocean. Most of these islands are uninhabited. One of the islands in Ha Long Bay is Cat Ba island where the endangered white-headed langur monkey species lives.

Hội An, Vietnam*

About Hội An

Hoi An stands for atmosphere. This picturesque town is jam-packed with attractions and has a relaxed, almost dreamlike atmosphere that makes almost everyone come here. This special place, with the narrow streets with wooden, colored houses, is an absolute must. Few places in Asia are as atmospheric as Hoi An.
In recent years, Hoi An has been extremely busy. Almost everyone who travels to Vietnam comes here. Despite being busy, the town keeps its charm. This is mainly because no motorized traffic is allowed in the old center.
Hoi An’s old town is a special mix of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and European influences from the sixteenth century. In its heyday it was an important port city in Vietnam. That atmosphere has always been preserved. That makes it a unique destination.

The center of Hoi An is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The center has been completely restored and is characterized by the narrow and small streets that are filled with atmospheric Japanese merchant houses, restaurants, museums, Chinese temples, old tea houses and clothing shops. The city also has a market where you can buy many local products.

Củ Chi Tunnels, Hồ Chí Minh

Information:

The tunnels of Củ Chi are an immense network of connecting tunnels located in the Củ Chi District of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, and are part of a much larger network of tunnels that underlie much of the country. The Củ Chi tunnels were the location of several military campaigns during the Vietnam War, and were the Viet Cong’s base of operations for the Tết Offensive in 1968.

The 121 km-long complex of tunnels at Củ Chi has been preserved by the government of Vietnam, and turned into a war memorial park with two different tunnel display sites, Ben Dinh and Ben Duoc. The tunnels are a popular tourist attraction, and visitors are invited to crawl around in the safer parts of the tunnel system. The Ben Duoc site contains part of the original tunnel system, while the Ben Dinh site, closer to Saigon, has tunnel reconstructions and some tunnels have been made larger to accommodate tourists. In both sites low-power lights have been installed in the tunnels to make traveling through them easier, and both sites have displays of the different types of booby traps that were used. Underground conference rooms where campaigns such as the Tết Offensive were planned in 1968 have been restored, and visitors may enjoy a simple meal of food that Viet Cong fighters would have eaten.
