  1. Quang Binh – Land of Caves

Anyone who have had a chance to explore Quang Binh can’t agree more with the fact that this place has an unbelievable beauty forming by its caves – the scenery, the light, the water’s color, the rock formation and the stalactites of the caves – all together create a masterpiece that even artists can’t make it out.

The tour will be with 2 to 4 days trekking, swimming, diving, discovering and camping with a group from 6 to 10. And you may need to book a year in advance due to the limit numbers of visits to the caves in order to preserve their pristine environment and surrounding.

  1. Son La – Ta Xua, a Cloud Hunting Peak

Stepping on cloud is true if you set foot on Taxua, a peak for hunting cloud. Located in the North-West region of Vietnam, Peak of Taxua is an ideal place where you can have a chance to see magnificent sea of clouds – really an incredible and breathtaking scenery. At an altitude of 2875m, this peak is surrounded by layers and layers of cloudy cloud all year round but any way it would be much more spectacular during Oct to Apr from 5a.m to 9a.m. The view of clouds soaring like ocean waves embracing the mountain range looks amazing.

  1. Quang Ninh – Binh Lieu

Along Ha Long (the world heritage) and Co To Island, Binh Lieu is another must-see when people come to visit Quang Ninh. Binh Lieu is well-known for its dinosaur spine in the middle of a vast space where the conquerors can get so cool feeling. Binh Lieu also welcomes visitors with a charming reed field along the hillside and endless terraced field under it. This destination is in good combination with a trip to Ha Long and you can visit it at any time of the year.

  1. Ninh Binh – Trang An

Trang An in Ninh Binh, a Landscape Complex, is spectacular for its limestone karst peaks permeated with valleys, many of which partly submerged and surrounded by steep and almost vertical cliffs. This complex is a mixed cultural and natural heritage of Vietnam consisting of Hoa Lu Ancient Capital (reigned by the Dinh, Le and Ly dynasties during the 10th & 11th centuries), Trang An-Tam Coc-Bich Dong Scenic Landscape (a so-called inland Ha Long Bay) and Hoa Lu Special-Use Forest. So coming to Trang An, people can choose to visit temples, pagodas to know more about the kings or to tour the ecosystem to explore its subterranean cave passages, beautiful paddy-fields and small villages.

Beside Trang An, Cuc Phuong National Park is another highlight for Ninh Binh visitors. It was officially opened in 1960 as the first national park in Vietnam. The park is surrounded by several limestone cliffs, the highest May Bac Peak (silver cloud peak) and on the area of 22,408ha. There are plenty of plants and mammals living in the park.

Sapa is always rated as one of the tourist ideal destinations thanks to its mountainous scenery, pleasant climate and pristine rice terraces. The surreal beauty of Sapa can also be seen in sky-high mountains in white cloud, in enchanting waterfalls or in trekking trails to home of the ethnic groups nearby.

  1. Ha Giang

Ha Giang is known for its majestic mountain landscape, wild and diverse nature. This is the must-visit place once in lifetime for those who love to travel along the nature.

  1. Binh Thuan – Phu Quy

In recent years, Phu Quy Island in Binh Thuan has become a more popular destination on the travel list. The island has shimmering scenery with beautiful beaches, blue water and especially a soil cave. Phu Quy Island is a flat, green island rising gently to two volcanic peaks, very isolated and far out in the ocean (120km east of Phan Thiet’s mainland). That makes the island more attractive to the ocean lovers. There are water activities here for you like scuba diving, fishing, and swimming.
