10 things to answer the question: “Why is Vietnam attractive?”


Beautiful natural landscape and scenery, pristine charming beaches, friendly locals or delicious street food, there are so many reasons for Vietnam tourism to be highly scored in the eyes of international travelers. Today, we reveal top 10 reasons that attract world-wide travelers to Vietnam Scenery:

1. Stunning Scenery:


Vietnam does not have extremely famous places like Niagara Falls, Sydney Opera House or Grand Canyons. On the other hand, this country is a hidden gem and only those who have set foot on can truly feel it. In Vietnam, there are many natural landscape with spectacular beauty, honored by UNESCO such as: Ha Long Bay, Phong Nha – Ke Bang cave, the ancient town of Hoi An, Cham island…

However, hidden places that surprise foreign visitors like Dalat are still not yet well-known in the world. The ancient villas with French architecture located next to the windy pine forests and strawberry gardens make visitors to Dalat wondering whether they are lost in some city in Europe. Keo Pagoda in Thai Binh province is another impressive example. Keo pagoda is situated between immense rice paddies that will give you a pleasant and peaceful feeling when visiting it.

2. Friendly Locals:


Like many other neighboring countries in Southeast Asia, Vietnam is also famous for its precious “asset” which is the friendliness and hospitality of Vietnamese people. In every destination, you will always be greeted with a friendly smile and helped whenever you need. For instance, Hue locals are famous for their elegance, while Hoi An people are well known with their honesty. If you have a chance to visit Mekong Delta, you will be impressed by the sincerity and enthusiasm of the people living in this river region.

3. A Destination for Every Budget:


Vietnam is known as an ideal destination for tourists of every budget. Despite the rise in prices and some economic difficulties, Vietnam’s traveling costs are relatively lower than many other countries in the world. Restaurants and hotels have expanded and become more and more diversified in order to match with different categories of travelers, from luxury lovers to low-budget travelers.

4. A Perfect Destination for Coffee Lovers:


In Vietnam you can find coffee shops in every street corner. Just step into any coffee shop, order a cup of black coffee or coffee with condense milk, simply sit down and enjoy watching people crossing the streets.

5. Ideal Place for off-the-beaten-track Experiences:


Vietnam offers unique and off-the-beaten-track travel styles, which can satisfy the diverse needs of all travelers. From visiting and exploring daily life of ethnic minorities in northern mountains, rock climbing in Cat Ba island near Halong Bay, to capturing the sunrise in Hoi An or sand sliding in Mui Ne, Vietnam gives you chances to creatively enjoy the country’s beauty in your very own way.

6. Exquisite Cuisine:


Vietnam is not only famous for Pho or Nem, many other Vietnamese dishes are also delicious with unique and diverse flavors, which usually vary by season and by region. In the seaside provinces such as Nha Trang, Da Nang or Vung Tau, you can easily find fresh seafood which is caught in the morning and served fresh with surprisingly affordable prices.

Thanks to a long history and tradition influenced by Buddhism, many Vietnamese special festivals are organised throughout the year. The most important festival is the Lunar New Year – it’s the time for family reunions. On these days, Northern people make “chung” cakes, while Southern people cook “tet” cake with the hope for a good new year. In Hai Phong, bullfighting festival is very famous to locals, in which the winning buffalo will be sacrificed for the village deity. On Vietnam’s 2/9 National Day, foreign tourists can follow the parade in many parts of the country.

With a coastline that stretches across the country, it is quite easy to understand why there so many beaches that get listed on top beaches of the world.
