Vietnam, is one of a country that I wish to visit in coming years. Have heard so much about the country and how they have grown rapidly over the years. Not only have they become a new emerging market around the region, they too have a lot of other historical sites, magnificent views and also small little cultural villages to visit along the way, their street food and local cuisine is to die for. Quick travellers, these are the three cities that you should visit.

Vietnam’s capital city has undergone rapid transformations in recent decades. Considered one of the most beautiful of the colonial Indochinese cities, Hanoi is a combination of old-world charm and modern developments brought on by its recent surge in tourism.
The motorbike-filled streets of Hanoi have much to offer for visitors, from lovely parks and museums to streetside restaurants and world-class coffee. Traces of the city’s French colonial past are still evident in the building architecture, language spoken by the older ‘Hanoians’, and even the French baguettes sold in bakeries.
Ha Long Bay
One of my favourite city that you will get to choose either to stay on board, on the classic yacht, then hike to the top at one of the island to take a breathtaking picture. During the visit to this city, my friend advised to take a road trip down as you can stop by to see all their local cultural village where you will certainly enjoy. A worthy experience. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay is located about 170km east of Hanoi in northern Vietnam. “Ha Long” means “bay of descending dragons” and it is an archipelago made up of 1,969 islands.
The bay is well-known for its scenic ocean karst topography and regarded one of the natural wonders of the world. There are various ways to experience Ha Long Bay, from Bai Chay tourist boats, budget and midrange cruises, or luxury cruises. The more adventurous at heart may also choose to kayak or take a seaplane for more panoramic views.
Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), the largest city in Vietnam, is often described as a vibrant, dynamic, highly energetic city that has everything a city traveller could hope for – from timeless temples to towering skyscrapers, classy restaurants to unassuming street stalls, the finest hotels to the cheapest guesthouses

Trip in Vietnam would never ever be complete if you have not eat any of the street food or any of their local cuisine. What are the food to eat and the list could be too long. I found this blogger and here you go on top 25 food that you must eat in Vietnam.
These are merely a tip of the iceberg when it comes to Vietnam’s diverse treasures. With the introduction of Vietjet’s maiden flight route from Kuala Lumpur to HCMC, now there are even more reasons why Vietnam should be the destination of your upcoming holiday.
