Originated from western religion and culture, Christmas has long been regarded one of the biggest holidays of the year. For those whose wanderlust is running in their blood, Vietnam Express Travel recommends 4 outstanding tourist paradises in North of Vietnam for your Noel wanderings.
- Hanoi city tours – Best of North Vietnam
Unsurprisingly, Ha Noi – the capital of Vietnam always tops the list of attractive destinations to travel when you come to the country. A remarkable thrill permeates all over Ha Noi City, whose distinctive culture harmoniously combines ageless tradition and wondrous modernity. Alongside the typical hustle and bustle of such a giant 8-million-population metropolis, you can see another Ha Noi that is as elegant as a slender branch of barringtonia in full red blossom overhanging toward the Sword Lake (Hồ Gươm) in an August afternoon; or another Ha Noi steeped in history as you stroll down 36 iconic streets inside the Old Quarter (phố cổ) that are here and there beautified by the catchy brightness of bougainvillea North Vietnam
You can also see a tranquil Ha Noi as you sit down by the West Lake (hồ Tây), silently beholding the setting sun over the horizon. Ha Noi tours, therefore, not merely allow you to immerse into culture, but rather to feature diverse cuisine of the capital. Once setting foot in Ha Noi, you must try Phở (rice noodle) and Cốm (green rice) – the 2 distinctive dishes in Ha Noi. Also, don’t forget to experience other dishes, including La Vong Fish Cake (chả cá Lã Vọng), noodle with tofu and shrimp sauce, grilled fermented pork rolls (nem chua nướng), coffee with eggs (cà phê trứng), and so forth -North Vietnam
- Sapa tours – Best of North Vietnam
Apart from Ha Noi City, Vietnam Express Travel leads you to a realistic ‘snowing’ paradise in such a tropical country as Vietnam – Sapa Town in Lao Cai Province. For those who are dying to see snow falling or hang around in nearly freezing weather, Sa Pa Tours are exactly what you expect to make your December terrific and ‘unique’ through your travel to Vietnam. Especially, most its native population are ethnic minority groups such as H’mong, Dao, etc., who will bring you a bunch of joys and memorable experiences as you homestay with them.
- Moc Chau tours – Best of the North Vietnam
If you’re fond of photography at a beautiful place in December, Moc Chau tours are going to be a wise choice for you to seize plenty of scenic shots. About 200 kilometers away from Ha Noi City in the West, Moc Chau Plateau in Son La Province emerges as a spectacular destination over which yellow flowers spread endlessly. Though December is such a good time for travel, Mo Chau in June enthralls you with lush green hills of tea in June, or with fragrant plum blossoms that are as white as snow, spotted around the area in March. Or let your heart get melted and your eyes roam about as bright pink cherry blossoms bloom out glamorously in February – it’s Tet holiday! This special destination will never let you down even though you are a ‘difficult’ guy in choosing a certain place to travel.
- HaLong Bay tours – Best of North Vietnam
It would be a big grief if you, on your travel to the North of Vietnam, skipped Ha Long Bay – the natural heritage of the country and the world as well. Coming there, you can kayak with friends and family around the bay to discover a host of limestone caves and karsts. It must be the best adventure for you to experience there because Ha Long Bay was ranked one of the top best 25 kayaking destinations by National Geographic. Otherwise, you can take a ticket for a tour around to adore such spectacular scenery, or even to spend a night floating around the bay watching thousand of stars twinkling in the sky.
