Things to do in Vietnam
It is impossible to see everything that Vietnam has to offer. Some things though just have to be experienced and the sacred sight of the Royal Tombs in Hue is one of them. These beautiful tombs are resting in one of Vietnam’s most historic cities and are a truly magnificent sight. Or visit one of Vietnam’s oldest pagodas, Dau Pagoda. Established by a monk, in the third century, this beautiful monument is sure to inspire awe.
Other sacred sites include Suoi Tien Park. Tucked inside the busy city of Ho Chi Minh, this peaceful park is a reminder of a Buddhists heaven. Also in the City is the War Remnants Museum—a somewhat disturbing museum that showcases the Vietnam experience with the French and Americans.
Scuba diving and swimming with the sea turtles are two favorite activities, along with strolling through the fine arts museum located in Ho Chi Minh City. The Arch Bishop’s Residence is not open to the public, but the stunning façade of the building is worth a visit. It is a remarkable example of French architecture that has managed to survive without damage.
