Located on the banks of the poetic Thu Bon River, in central Quang Nam province, 30 kilometers south of Da Nang, Hoi An ancient town is an Eastern oriental classic captivation. With the strategic location on the banks of the great river, with one seaside border (East), it used to be one of the major trading centers in Southeast Asia during the 16th century due to the early western trader occupying period.

Sprawling area of a Vietnam War era tunnel complex near Cu Chi. Exhibits and displays represent a partial view of how the communist forces during the war handled logistics and strategic operations. Many US and allied veterans of the war might find some of the displays disturbing as well as some of the narratives, but the war ended over 43 years ago, and the area is well worth a visit.

Hanoi’s lively Old Quarter comprises nearly 40 streets packed with shops selling all kinds of goods, each street named for its primary good or service.
My visit to Hanoi started by wandering the streets of the Old Quarter. Reportedly over 1000 years of human habitation, it’s what you might expect from a crowded Asian trading area. Shops, narrow streets, bustling motorbikes and authentic eateries. I spent 2-3 hours strolling, browsing and marvelling at the sites, sounds and smells, which was mostly pleasant, but occasionally pungent. Consider joining a foodie walking tour so you know where to eat. I was somewhat cautious of the street food vendors but plenty of tourists were indulging in many of the eateries. I kept my souvenir shopping for other places on my trip as there is a lot of choice here, but quality was lacking. Mostly imported goods, probably from China. Locals are friendly. Well worth a visit.

Tu Lan caves system is located in Minh Hoa District, Quang Binh Province, this is the Karst center of 200ha next to Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park. The caves system has been discovered by local fishermen in 2009 and explored by British Cave Research Association (BCRA) in 2010, there were only 3 caves, Tu Lan, Hang Ken and Hang Tien have been explored in 2010 expedition, in 2012 the BCRA expedition came back and explored more caves include Hung Hon, Hang Uoi, Hang Chuot, Hang Son Oxalis and Hang Kim. There are few more caves have been found in 2013 in this area. Tu Lan caves system became popular when Carsten Peter (NatGeo photographer) took a photo in Hang Ken that won so many prizes on National Geographic Magazine in 2011. The caves system is now open for tourist and managed by Oxalis Company Limited, and special caving and jungle trekking company. The intent of Oxalis that to keep this caves system as natural, no construction and housing to be built in this area, the objective is making everybody feel like the first person in the area. There are several tour options from one day to 5 days and from very easy to very hard trek.
If you travel to Vietnam, you should go to the Phong Nha Nationalpark. I did the tour with oxalis Tu lan Cave Encounter. Please make sure to book it via their homepage. It is much cheaper than booking it via other agencies! The stuff is very helpful if you book the tour.
First of all the tour is very well structured and organized. The oxalis team think of everything. The food is perfect and you feel safe during the trekking all the time. For me it was the first time so I had no experiences and The tour guides help you all the time. Thank you a lot!
For me it was the highlight of my trip to Vietnam.

Being on a photo tour with Vietnam In Focus I'm always seeking spectacular scenery to capture. Dong Van Karst Plateau surpassed all expectations. Mountainous pinnacles rose from the valley like something out of Avatar. It was just superb. Do yourself a favour and travel to this beautiful place.

The duck stop was beautiful - couldn't recommend enough. We did crash our bike into the mud on the way down the track, but that added to the adventure.

Quite unusual to see military uniforms from all corners of the planet. Especially liked the Coldstream guards behind glass and with displays labeled in English. When I viewed some of the firearms, they were just incredible with inlay work I have never seen before! A must attend if at all interested in military history.

My husband and I visited this waterfall in October (2017) and stayed in a Nha Nhgi nearby (about 2-3km away). We shared the experience with probably 10-15 Vietnamese tourists and that was it! It was incredibly peaceful and quiet ... and then you look to the other side of the river where there are hundreds of Chinese tourists visiting the same place (but on China's side of the river and waterfall).
It cost about $5US per person to enter and there were plenty of stalls selling the usual food/traditional souvenirs at the entrance but then when you get past that you are able to get really good photos of the actual waterfall itself.
You can take buses from Cao Bang city as well (they start at around 5am to catch the sunrise, and the last bus departs the waterfall at around 4pm back to Cao Bang).
One of the highlights of our trip to the north of Vietnam for sure!!

Very nice. Long boat ride, about 2.5 hours but every minute was something of interest to see. Highly recommended are various other attractions nearby.

We visited here with Ms San Tours. Ms San ensured we were in our own boats, not sharing with other tourists. Photos do not do this place justice!The setting was tranquil and the flora was spectacular and there were an abundance of blooming water lilies. At times we felt we were floating on grass rather then water due to the vibrant green covering on the canal surface. The only thing I would change would be to have the boat trips be slower and longer. Particularly the motorised boats went too fast to really allow us to adequately appreciate the surroundings or to get a good enough look at some of the amazing bird-life.
