South-East Asia is much more than just Thailand, Singapore or Bali. We’d say a highly underrated destination in this region is Vietnam. Yes, this country should be definitely on your must-visit list especially if you are done with the places just mentioned. The place oozes culture, tradition, history, country life, and relaxation mode. But more than anything else, this place is all about fun, especially with your kids. Here are 6 fun things to do in Vietnam:
A hike in the Sapa Valley
This is easily one of the most breath-taking walks you will ever take in your lifetime. Situated in the Muong Hoa Valley in the Hoang Lien Son Mountain range in north-west Vietnam, this walk is a treat for nature lovers. On the way, you will discover paddy fields and village life, which will take you back in time.
Get high on local rice
Fun and alcohol go hand in hand. Especially, if you try the local rice vino, which has a distinct flavor. It’s processed by fermenting rice. It has a nice balance of feisty and fineness in it. It is available in all nooks and corners of the country. A trip to Vietnam is incomplete without tasting this gem.
Get on track with History
This train journey from Hanoi to Sapa is like time travel. After all, the train is more than 70 years old and breathes a lot of French art and heritage. It’s an overnight journey that is sure to give you sweet dreams by the time you wake up.
Shopping with a twist
No promenades, boulevards or brands here. This is shopping that gets as rustic as it can be. Get transported into the village life at Bac Ha markets where you will discover local art, handicrafts, souvenirs and vivacious fabrics at dirt cheap rates. And if you are in the mood to cook something, this market serves plenty of fresh veggies, meats, and fruits. Like they say it, from farm to plate.
Cruise through heritage
Mekong Delta is just the best way to laze and be inspired by the endless beauty of nature. Cruise through small islands, farms, villages, and tradition. Our suggestion is take a cargo boat so that you get to meet the locals and understand the various nuances of the Vietnamese culture.
Walkthrough the cave of wonders
Did you know Vietnam has the world’s largest caves? Yes, some of them can even fit a skyscraper. If you don’t believe it, travel to Hang Son Doong. What adds to the adventure is the mesmeric vegetation of the region, which is filled with exotic jungles and waterfalls, which will make your Vietnam trip unforgettable.
