Best places to visit in the South Vietnam

Famous for spectacular scenery and soothing climate, the southern highlands of Vietnam are worth discovering. It is no surprise that the colonial powers sought out Dalat as their retreat in summer time. Head straight towards the coast and there is a large number of selections for beach lovers ranging from: a bustling resort in Nha Trang with various high class hotels to the lesser known and more tranquil resorts of Phan Thiet and Phu Quoc.

It is hard for you to decide where to go. Crazy nightlifes and an exciting buzz in the former Saigon or for a more funny time excursion immersing in the majestic Mekong Delta and see the daily lifestyle and unique tradition that has changed little over the years are also what the tropical south offers you. An incredible part of a changeable country!

The biconvex southern coastline of Vietnam is lined with seemingly infinite beaches that for many travelers are all reason for their visit to the country. Nha Trang and Mui Ne which are the large resort areas have witnessed their explosive popularity and are now supplement culinary exquisites and top-drawer accommodation to their coastal beauties. Travelers also track down a number of less-heralded beaches and even a few islands, but the region also has historical meaning – this was once the lordship of the kingdom of Champa, whose splendid traces still spot the coast.

Not only located on the southern coast, Vietnam’s southernmost beaches are also situated on the former French prison islands of Con Dao. Unlike the high-octane development of other beaches, Con Dao retains a laidback, slow-stepped air that seduces many visitors to stay much longer than they had expected. Back on the mainland, Vung Tau that used to be a French seaside resort, and now a prosperous, oil-rich town with tolerable beaches is the first town of note; further up the coast, Ho Coc is also a place where you can find much better beaches. In fact, there are few travelers having the time or tendency to get along the beaches between Vung Tau and Mui Ne, but with your private means of transport and an adventurous curiosity you can find somewhere to pace out a desolate set of footprints in the white long sand.

Coming to Mui Ne, a short skirt up the coast you will never feel lonely. This resort overlooking aquamarine waters attracts a steady stream of external visitors besides serving as a relaxing short break for Ho Chi Minh City’s expats and growing middle-class. For those who find it wasted to spend all day long sunbathing, around Phan Rang, site of Po Klong Garai, the most impressive of the various tower complexes constructed by the once-mighty empire of Champa is the most perfect choice. Although not being in the same league as Mui Ne, the nearby beaches at Ninh Chu and Ca Na make a good impression on travelers for a bit of peace and quiet.

I Love Vietnam.
