Grab your chance to fly to Ho Chi Minh for free!!!!

Everyone knows Vietnam has plenty to offer. Whether you are looking for a relaxing beach holiday or you are there to do some hiking and go on some adventure, Vietnam is the place you will have an unforgettable experience.

Do you know the Halong Bay islands are a dream come true for both adventurers and casual tourists…The large number of small islands clustered around the bay, with sheer cliffs ideal for adventure-seeking climbers and beautiful sandy beaches, as well as tons of interesting activities such as kayaking and helicopter rides. Those who are not so adventurous, can simply relax  and take their time on lovely cruise boats with large sails (traditional sampan rig style).


Historical fans like me would be pleased to know that Vietnam has a big number of well-preserved temples that stand as witnesses to the highly developed culture spanning hundreds and hundreds of years. The Temple of Literature in Hanoi is devoted to Confucius and scholars in general. Built in 1070, it hosts Vietnam’s first national university. A large number of stelae were raised to commemorate the achievements of great scholars throughout the years, and it is quite breathtaking seeing it. It is a unique piece of history and a great example of the kind of culturally significant sites available for modern scholars and history enthusiasts to explore.

The unique combination of Western and Eastern architecture there is there at Vua Meo… Vietnam was under French rule from the late 19th century up until the First Indochina War in the mid-20th century. At certain periods tensions were high, but during this time a unique blend of Western and Eastern architecture emerged, and one of the most beautiful examples of this is the Vua Meo villa built by the French for the leader of the Hmong people. Interestingly enough it was once known as “The Opium Palace”, as one of its cellars stored large amounts of opium, and the walls were decorated with poppy-seed and flower designs.

Hikers love the hills of Sapa where they can experience the rich culture of local tribes that live there..Sapa, a Vietnamese market town located in the Northwest. The area around it features beautiful hills and valleys, great hiking and trekking trails, and breathtaking terraced rice fields. Several ethnic groups live in the area and tend to the fields, and there is so much to see and learn about the unique culture of the tribes residing in the hills of Sapa

Some beach enthusiast just want get some sun on their skin, swim and have fun on a beach of fine sand. Halong Bay is an excellent place for both adventure and the traditional beach vacation, but there are a whole lot of other incredible beaches in Vietnam, like the quiet Long Beach in Phu Quoc, or the lovely City Beach in Nha Trang.

And of course, every Malaysian knows that Ho Chi Minh City is truly a shopping wonderland for every style, budget and wish list. HCM city has the entire range of shopping venue options for everyone to choose from... from the impressive, modern malls, specialized large “box” stores, small and cute boutiques, tourist markets, local markets and even shop-front-lined, dedicated shopping streets! Everyone has their own unique shopping needs and wishes and HCM city's shopping is just so much like a fun treasure hunt. You can definitely find everything from cultural handicrafts to high-end designer label brand clothes, and everything in between, including imitation brand name clothes, shoes, jewelry, foods, home d├ęcor and more. 

You can definitely find the perfect place for yourself, depending on whether you want something more secluded, where you can be alone with a significant other, or want to be in an urban environment, but have the ability to get down to the beach for a quick swim in a matter of minutes.

If you are looking for an exotic location, with lots of fun and worthwhile things to do, Vietnam is definitely the place to visit. Even if you don’t have a clear idea of what you want out of your vacation, there’s something for everyone in this interesting country.
