As a newlywed couple, it becomes a trend thinking of what to do right after the wedding. Which is, deciding on your honeymoon destination before starting a new chapter of your life.
Well, with its magnificent ancient charm, captivating landscapes, delicious food, and interesting history, Vietnam made a spot as a recommended place for the newly-weds.
Here are some of the fascinating destinations in Vietnam that will surely give you some memorable and meaningful experiences.
1. Phu Quoc Island
Enjoy the spectacular sunset at the largest island in Vietnam, Phu Quoc. A very peaceful tropical paradise which is just 50 kilometers from the mainland and 50-minute flight from Ho Chi Minh City.
The island offers extremely beautiful unspoiled beaches like Truong beach, the Star Beach or Bai Sao, and Gach Dau beach. And if you’re looking for more adventure, you can explore and go on mountain hikes or go on scuba diving.
2. Da Lat
Located on the highland of Lam Vien in the province of Lam Dong, Da Lat has a cool temperature all year round. Which offers the newly-weds a relaxing retreat away from the noise of the cities.
Da Lat is also known as “Le Petit Paris”, surrounded by these picturesque hills and serene historical temples. It is indeed a perfect place to enjoy quality time with your partner while sipping a cup of coffee in a cool and romantic atmosphere.
3. Hoi An
Hoi An is considered as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Because of its exceptionally well-preserved history and ancient houses.
At night time, don’t forget to take a stroll while being amazed by hundreds of hanging lanterns scattered along the serene streets of the old town. You should also not miss taking a glimpse of the Japanese Covered Bridge, which is one of the most popular symbols of Hoi An.
4. Ha Long – Yen Tu
With over 2,000 enormous limestone cliffs, Ha Long Bay is known all over the world because of that. It was once included in the 7 wonders of the world.
Imagine you two are on a top-class cruise around the bay while enjoying the breathtaking scenery or sunset. Isn’t it amazing? This will definitely give you an unforgettable experience and memories that you will forever cherish.
I have added an off the beaten path destination which is just a few kilometers away from the famous Ha Long Bay. It’s Yen Tu, in Uong Bi.
This is really a perfect place if you’re looking for something quiet, peaceful, and close to nature. Yen Tu is known for its mountain and it’s called the capital of Buddhism in Vietnam. Because for over 700 years they’re still able to preserve the temples, authentic and valuable relics, and the massive system of pagodas. Indeed! Yen Tu can offer calmness at it’s finest.
Sapa, the home of the highest mountain in Vietnam, Fansipan Mountain. It is also known as the “Roof of Indochina” towering around 3,143 meters above sea level and can be considered as the highlight attraction in town.
The striking valleys, the rice terraces, and the temperate climate the whole year are some of the reasons why you shouldn’t miss this destination and should include it to your romantic itinerary.
If you’re wondering when is the best time to visit Sapa? It will be from June to September. The locals said it’s a perfect time. Because the rice fields are not harvested yet. That means a perfect opportunity to witness the golden rice fields.
To be honest, there are a lot of stunning and noteworthy places to visit here in Vietnam. These are just some of the best destinations. And I hope these might help you to decide, where will you spend a great and quality time with your partner as you enter the new chapter of your life? 😊
