5 best places to visit in Vietnam – A country full of Surprises

By on 4. September 2017

To choose the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam was so difficult for me, because this country is absolutely amazing and it has so much to do and to see. From raw jungles and stunning coastlines to natural UNESCO World Heritage sites and the most untouched places ever. It’s all there, only waiting people to come and visit…

 

 

5 best places to visit in Vietnam

Guys, you won’t find many more exciting countries than Vietnam. Vietnam is an awesome place in all aspects you can imagine. It has a very interesting history, the most incredible nature, you’ll visit the friendliest people ever, costs are low and you will get the best food you have ever eaten.

Honestly, it is one of my favourite countries. Maybe this has mainly something to do with the fact that I did a motorbike tour through the whole country, which was absolutely great. I just love Vietnam and everything it has to offer.

And this is why it was so hard to pick the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam.

Halong Bay

Halong Bay has to be the first one from the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam. It is one of the 7 new natural world wonders of the world according to Wikipedia. It lies in the northeast of the country directly at the coast. Basically, Halong Bay is a huge number of big and very beautiful limestone rocks, which stand out of the ocean and firm a truely magical scenery. It’s insanely pretty.





You can visit it by booking a boat tour, which will most likely also take you to Cat Ba Island. During the tour you’ll also visit some very old caves, which have developed over millions of years.

Halong Bay is maybe the nr 1. spot to go to in this country and that’s why you have to put it on top of your list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam.

Dalat

The 2nd point on the list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam is Dalat in my opinion. It is a really pretty little village in the south of the country. It lies in the mountains and it’s surrounded by big coffee farms, raw forests, clear rivers as well as lakes and very beautiful waterfalls.

Beautiful area around Dalat

Lakes near Dalat

Not that many people know Dalat, which is why this place is still quite an insider. The city itself is also very cute and colourful. It is very charming in the way it was built and it has many green spaces to hang out at. It’s really nice. Make sure to check it out and put in on your list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam.

Jungle Beach

The third one to put on to the list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam is Jungle Beach. Almost noone knows this place. It lies in the southeast of the country and it is not that easy to find. It’s quite easy to get there, but almost noone has ever heard of it.

Jungle Beach

It is a small beach right next to some hills full of exotic trees. There are only a couple hostels and you literally won’t find any people there except of a couple that made it there somehow. I stayed at a very nice hostel at the end of this white sand beach, which is managed by an old Canadian dude. He is very cool and the location itself is very nice. Everything is really basic. You’ll sleep in bamboo huts right next to the beach, food is absolutely delicious and it’s one of only a few places in Southeast Asia, which is really peaceful. You’ll love it. Promised!

So, make sure to put it on your list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam.

Song Doong

The caves of Song Doong definitely have to be on the list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam, because it is one of the most impressive caves you’ll ever see/ out there on the planet.

Song Doong is absolutely amazing

Song Doong is one of the biggest cave systems on the planet and it has de

veloped over millions of years. The seling of some parts of the cave is higher than 200 meters and is has an overall size of more than 38,5 million cubic meters.





You can do various activities like climbing, zip lining, caving in the dark and much more. It’s just spectacular!

Make sure to go there and definitely put it on the list of the 5 best places to visit in Vietnam for sure!

Song Doong developed over millions of years

Sapa or Bac Kan

The north of this country is truely beautiful and very, very remote. It needs to be under 5 best places to visit in Vietnam in my opinion, because I promise you will have rarely seen something as beautiful as that before in your life.

The north is such an awesome area within Vietnam

5 best places in Vietnam – The north

The whole landscape is almost completely untouched. You will only find a few people and a couple villages here and there. But that’s it. Sometimes the roads even come to an end, so that you can’t go any further unless you have the guts to do it.

Sapa is a world famous rice terrace area in the northeast of Hanoi. Sapa is already very lost. Bac Kan lies in the northeast of Hanoi. This place is even more remote than Sapa. It’s up to you where to go, but you will have a remarkable time either way. Both areas are nothing but incredible.

At the end of the day all these 5 spots are worth having a look and there are many, many more… 🙂

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???
.

  • Hello mate, how are you? 😀🐻🐾
.
Isn't that the cutest animal on earth?
.
What I can definitely say for myself is that they are easily the fluffiest I have ever touched 😍
.
And they are by far the most relaxed animals ever. Maybe because of all the eucalyptus they eat... 😉
.
TELL ME: What's YOUR favourite animal?

  • The door to Angkor Wat during sunrise 😍🌅
.
I love a good sunrise! Not only because of its enormous beauty, but mainly for the fact that it's the perfect symbol for a new chance 👌
.
A new chance to improve
.
A new chance to do something good
.
A new chance to bring value to the world
.
A new chance to walk towards the right direction
.
And ultimately and new chance to get the best out your life and make great memories!
.
Great Memories that you can tell grandchildren about in 50 years from now, which will teach them some valuable lessons for life 🙏

  • A perfect example of a unique city that can teach a great lesson❗
.
Spending some time in one of the coolest and most beautiful cities on the planet made me think about what an insane level of power, creativity and endurance humanity has
.
It's crazy what we are able to do and to build nowerdays. But it has always been like this ⏳
.
Prague is a really good example for that. A city full of thousands and thousands of details, wonderful buildings and historically important monuments, all built over a course of hundreds of years
.
And the required power, creativity and endurance the people needed is something that we all have within ourselfs 🔥
.
It's not only reservated for specific people or special human beings
.
Everyone has that in him/ herself ! 💪
.
It's just about recognizing these strenghts and letting them all out... 👊 and don't let anyone tell you any different!
.
I always say this (on my website as well) - travel is the best teacher. You just need to find the true values of it and adapt them to your everyday life 👌
.
#praha #prague🇨🇿
  • What's the true value of home? 😍🍁
.
Pretty autumn views like this one from a nearby forest of my hometown Hamburg?
.
Maybe...
.
But not really. In my opinion it's something else
.
As much as I like travelling around, discovering new places, getting to know other cultures, meeting new people and seeing other types of wonderful landscapes, I just still never forget where I come from ⚓
.
Exploring the world as much as possible is great, but there is also a great value in appreciating your own Backround
.
The more I look around, the more I see young people like me, who want to escape  from their home countries, just to wander around for as long as possible with no real intent
.
I think that's a big mistake! ☝
.
When the travel bug gets me again, I never JUST travel around to say:" hey look, I left things behind and went on the next big journey. Isn't that awesome???"
.
It is in a way, but not to much to be honest
.
When I go somewhere I always try to learn something new from the journey itself, the people or the culture AND THEN take it back home with me and use for my future
.
This why HOME is so important... Because it's the base where it all starts and Without home there would be nothing to ultimately come back and adapt your new skills to
.
So always make sure to appreciate home and where you come from 👌💪

  • I can already say, that exploring Nacpan Beach was one of the most beautiful things I have done this year even though there are still 2 months left... 😉😍
.
It's always fascinating to me how fast beautiful places like this usually become mass tourism spots
.
Luckily Nacpan Beach is still quite undeveloped and therefore one of the prettiest and most pristine beaches in northern Palawan in my opinion
.
Hopefully it stays like this for a long, long time ⏳🙏
.
If you have never been, I highly recommend to make this one of your next travel goals 😄

  • I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE adventures❗
.
You know why?
.
Because they push you, they are fun AND you LEARN something valuable from them every single time 👊
.
One of the greatest adventures I have done in my life so far was a road trip through the center of Vietnam with my motorcycle that I called "Foxy Roxy" (I know that's weird 😅)
.
When I did it, I did not know what to expect, but my goal was to have an awesome time
.
I found out pretty quickly that it's gonna be a hard challenge: many locals didn't really speak English, roads have been in bad constitution, I got lost a couple times, my motorbike broke down 2 times, I freezed my ass off in the mountains and much, much more
.
So why was this adventure great then?
.
Because I LEARNED that you have got to keep pushing even if you struggle hard. You always have to keep going. Never give up. Keep moving and don't ever stop 💪
.
That's what I did, which is why I ended up having an amazing time: I saw awesome landscapes, met the friendliest people, found lost temples and ultimately learned an important lesson for life
.
ALWAYS keep pushing towards you goals EVERY single day and never give up
.
I AM CURIOUS: What is your biggest travel lesson??? 😊

  • There is a quote that says "if traveling was free, you'd never see me again" and this quote fits my attitude a 100%❗
.
My ultimate goal is to become free one day, financially and personally, so that I can travel to awesome places like banaue in the Philippines whenever I want 😍
.
Just being free of boundaries and the 9 to 5 lifestyle
.
If I had the chance, I'd probably travel the whole planet 🌎
.
Who's with me on this??? 😀

  • One of the best sunsets I have ever seen was on Koh Lanta in Thailand 🌅
.
I just love a good sunset and I know I am not the only one... 😉
.
So TELL ME: where was your favourite sunset at? 🌎
.
P.s. I am going to London in 3 weeks. Anyone who has some tips on what to do?
