List of 10 Best Cities for Foreign Traveler to Visit in Vietnam

One attraction of adventure vacations is the chance to do something different from your everyday life. Hoi An sits in the middle of a popular cycling route between Hué and Nha Trang. Along this route, you will be treated to small, countryside roads, rugged outcrops, and picturesque rice paddies.

Every month, visitors to Hoi An are treated to a stunning lantern display to celebrate the full moon. If you are visiting around February you will be able to experience the biggest celebration of all as that is when the lunar new year falls.

Dalat

Perhaps one of the lesser-known Vietnamese cities is Dalat which is situated in Vietnam’s Central Highlands. The area is full of natural beauty so nature-lovers should add it to their bucket list.

Elephant Falls was named after a rock formation that looked like an elephant’s head. A 45-minute bus ride away, the waterfalls are a beautiful example of a multi-tiered waterfall. Due to their more remote location, the falls are pretty quiet during the week but they can get busier (and cost more to enter) when there is an annual festivity.

A trip to Vietnam would not be complete without a visit to a pagoda. Dalat houses one of the most impressive as it is home to the tallest bell tower in the country. Linh Phuoc Pagoda is a 20-minute drive from the city center and is known by locals as Bottle Pagoda due to its having a 49-meter-long dragon statue made of recycled beer bottles. The bell tower itself is 37 meters high and visitors have the opportunity to write a small note and stick it to the bell before ringing it three times to ensure Buddha receives it.
