VOV.VN - Brian Johnston, a travel writer for Traveller magazine, has named Vietnam among a list of the Top 8 best places in Asia to go to on holiday.
According to Johnston, the nation abandoned all health requirements placed on international travel on May 15, with the exception that you must have a minimum of US$10,000 travel insurance covering COVID-19.
When travelling to the country, the Australian writer suggests that visitors stay at the new Fusion Original Saigon Centre in Ho Chi Minh City.
Elsewhere, during a visit to Phu Quoc Island he also notes that VinWonders is a perfect location for families as it has six zones, a water park, and more than 100 entertainment activities.
Most notably, Quy Nhon is the first destination mentioned by Johnston in the list of top spots in Vietnam.
“Long beautiful beach-flanked Quy Nhon has acquired hipster mojo and is tipped as the next Da Nang,” says the writer.
Ninh Binh, which boasts terrific limestone outcrops and World Heritage grottoes situated amid lush rice paddies, and Da Lat, which is also an excellent spot for adventure sports such as trekking, mountain biking, and rafting, were also named in the list. This is along with Dien Bien Phu which is developing eco-tourism and offering indigenous village homestays amid stunning forested landscapes and Hmong culture.
According to the Traveller writer, the best time to visit the country is between March and April. He noted that the December to March period still good for sightseeing, but temperatures are not as warm on local beaches.
Rounding off the list of the Top 8 Asian holiday destinations was Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Republic of Korea, and India.
