There’s a humorous connotation attached to each certain place, of a young woman who wears her own classic looks that sweep anyone off their feet. And Vietnam with its mesmerizing four-thousand-year elegance brilliantly charms as such a so-called beauty. Rich in history and steeped in tradition, the country owns a powerful magnetizing effect on visitors, as a fantastic destination whose distinction in every part – the north, middle and south – offers plenty of unforgettable experiences. In this article, Vietnam Express Travel guides you to South Vietnam, which has a hospitable tropical climate with excellent sunlight all year round.
Ho Chi Minh City – the charming city named after Uncle Ho
When it comes to the South Vietnam, Saigon – the hustling 10-million-population metropolis emerges in the first place where you shouldn’t miss discovering, on Ho Chi Minh City tours. Regarded as a city that never sleeps, Ho Chi Minh City highlights the hustle and bustle of Vietnam’s economic center. With perfect weather that sunshine seems never to die all day long, this destination will promisingly bring you a great deal of sheer joy ever.
Despite the fact that shopping malls and amusement parks mushroom strikingly, there is a load of greenfield space as eco-tourist sites, for those who love the wilderness, such as Bo Cap Vang (Golden Shower Park), Giang Dien Waterfall, Binh Quoi Eco-park, and so forth. The city also features superb cuisine, serving as a big plus that you decide to pick Ho Chi Minh City to be your travel destination with friends and family. For the locals and tourists alike, sweet soups or chè turn out to be gourmet-but-cheap desserts satisfying their sweet tooth absolutely.
Sailing back in history at Cu Chi Tunnels
If you seek to escape from the hustle and bustle of Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City, pay visit to Cu Chi Tunnels where you can sail back in history to first-hand witness the Vietnam War. About 70 kilometers northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi Tunnels are an astonishing network of connecting underground tunnels, which served as an effective defensive screen against booms and weapons dropped by the enemy during the Indochina Wars as well as the Vietnam War.
Nowadays, part of Cu Chi Tunnels is open to the public as an amazing tourist attraction for both domestic and, especially, foreign visitors who like to study Vietnam’s culture and history. Over 120 kilometers long, embracing a perplexing underground complex of clinics, hideaways, boom-charging rooms, secret conference chambers, etc. – as Vietnam Express Travel truly believes – this maze-like destination excites one’s curiosity and passion for adventure once they set foot in there.
Adoring scenery while floating around Mekong Delta
Last October, Wanderlust the British magazine suggested Mekong Delta to be one of the 8 interesting destinations to celebrate a ‘warm’ Christmas. The Mekong Delta or Đồng bằng Sông Cửu Long (literally as Nine Dragon River Delta), also known as the Western Region (Miền Tây in Vietnamese) includes 12 provinces with a feature of seemingly countless rivers and canals. Therefore, the main means of transportation are ships, jolly boats, canoes and other waterway vehicles. Coming to Mekong Delta, visitors will adore spectacular scenery whilst floating around in such a paradise on earth – South Vietnam
In addition to sailing in clear rivers, visitors can make an adventure on Vietnam’s longest waterway through cajuput forests within Tan Lap Tourist Park located in An Giang Province. Moreover, travelers can enjoy ‘exotic delicacies’ of Mekong Delta such as broiled harvest mice (chuột đồng thui), grilled snakehead fish (cá lóc nướng trui), Siamese mud carp dip with caramelized fish sauce (cá linh kho quẹt), broiled field frog (ếch đồng nướng), sour and sweet spiny goby hotpot (lẩu cá kèo), etc.
