Vietnam Travel Maps
Regal and refined, Vietnam’s thousand-year-old capital offers a hodgepodge of historical sights from across centuries, not to mention topnotch shopping in the vibrant Old Quarter, where you’ll find plenty of mouthwatering cuisine alongside some of the city’s best local color. Circle by Hoan Kiem Lake, the elegant, aging Temple of Literature, and somber Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum for the city’s best sights, and get an introduction to Vietnam’s array of local culture at the excellent Museum of Ethnology.
Ha Long Bay
The mysterious, mesmerizing waters of the north coast form a seascape like no other, draped in lush, mist-covered jungle and dotted with gravity-defying limestone islands.
The Central Provinces
Replete with crumbling imperial tombs, trendy modern shops, sleek contemporary skyscrapers, and the riotous colors of ancient pagodas, the central provinces are a jam-packed juxtaposition of old and new.
The South-Central Coast
The south-central coast has all but cornered the market on beach destinations in Vietnam. From hip and happening Nha Trang Beach, brimming with nonstop energy and aquatic activities, to the tranquil shores of Mui Ne, a resort enclave to the south, the belly of the “S” is where travelers flock for a few days of R&R between more hectic destinations. Water sports are popular here, with plenty of snorkeling, diving, and kitesurfing. Dalat, the anomaly of the region, boasts a mixture of cool mountain air, rural charm, and off-the-beaten-path adventure.
Ho Chi Minh City
The high-octane commercial hub of the country, Ho Chi Minh City (known to locals as Saigon) buzzes from morning until night, caught up in a whirlwind of motorbikes, street vendors, megamarkets, and miniature local shops.
The Mekong Delta
The nine spidering veins of the mighty Mekong branch out across western Vietnam, creating a bizarre fusion of water and land where markets float, boats become houses, and narrow, winding tributaries wend through lush fruit orchards.
