Nha Trang – Khanh Hoa – Vietnam
Nha Trang is Vietnam´s beach resort town. A major face-lift in 1995-96, and the opening of two upmarket hotels later in 1996, vaulted Nha Trang onto the playing field with places like Phuket, Thailand, and Cancun, Mexico. Today, it´s a popular destination for both foreign and domestic visitors. In addition to sun bathing, popular attractions include boat trips to the nearby islands and tours of Nha Trangs historic sites. If you like typical beach resort towns, then Nha Trang is for you. Nha Trang is on the central coast, about 450 km north of Saigon and 1,200 km south of Hanoi. The main strip in Nha Trang is Tran Phu Street, which runs north-south along the sea for about 4 kilometers. It is a wide boulevard, bisected by a grassy median with street lamps. Several restaurants and bars line the beach side of Tran Phu, while hotels and more restaurants line the other. A walking path and wide swath of trees separate the beach from the road. Not surprisingly, life in Nha Trang centers on the beach. In the early mornings and late afternoons, especially on weekends, you´ll find the beach packed with locals. In addition to swimming, football (soccer) is a popular pastime, and you´ll find several games in progress. During the heat of the day, the locals surrender the beach to mostly foreign sun-worshippers. In the evenings the beach is all but empty. When you tire of the beach, visit the nearby islands. Day trips are offered by just about every hotel and cafe. A typical itinerary includes visiting 2 or 3 islands, snorkeling and lunch, all for about US$8 per person. For serious snorkelers and divers who want to spend more time in the water, two local dive operators offer day trips from January to October Back on the mainland, there are a few worthwhile attractions in or near town. The towering white Buddha that can be seen from many parts of Nha Trang is part of the Long Son Pagoda and can be reached by climbing a steep (and long!) set of stairs. North of town, across the Nha Trang River, lies the Po Nagar Cham site. The ancient Cham towers sit high atop a hill; the views overlooking the river and town are awe-inspiring. A little beyond Po Nagar lies Hon Chong, a scenic beach that is reputed to have the best seafood in the area. South of town, check out Emperor Bao Dais former holiday retreat, now a hotel Every road leads to Nha Trang; well, actually there´s only one road, National Highway 1, but you can also fly or take the train from just about anywhere in Vietnam. Some promoters boast that there is only one month of bad weather in Nha Trang, which is true if you don´t mind rain and wind. Otherwise, plan to visit between January and August
Halong Bay – Quang Ninh – Vietnam
Located in the North-East region of Vietnam, Halong Bay is a bay in the Gulf of Tonkin comprised of regions of Halong City, the township of Cam Pha, and a part of the island district of Van Don. Halong Bay borders Cat Ba Island in the southwest, the East Sea in the east, and the mainland, creating a 120 km coastline. Halong Bay is made up of 1,969 islands of various sizes, 989 of which have been named. There are two kinds of islands, limestone and schist, which are concentrated in two main zones: the southeast (belonging to Bai Tu Long Bay), and the southwest (belonging to Halong Bay). This densely concentrated zone of stone islands, world famous for its breathtaking scenery of grottoes and caves, forms the central zone of Halong Bay, which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage The bay itself has an area of 43,400 ha, consists of 775 islands, and forms a triangle with the island of Dau Go (Driftwood Grotto) to the west, the lake of Ba Ham (Three Shelter Lake) to the south, and the island of Cong Tay to the east. Viewed from above, Halong Bay echoes a geographic work of art. While exploring the bay, you feel lost in a legendary world of stone islands. There is Mans Head Island, which resembles a man standing and looking towards the mainland. Dragon Island looks like a dragon hovering above the turquoise water. La Vong Island resembles an old man fishing. There are also the islands of the Sail, the Pair of Roosters, and the Incense Burner, which all astonishingly resemble their namesakes. The forms of the islands change depending on the angle of the light and from where the islands are viewed. At the core of the islands, there are wonderful caves and grottoes, such as Thien Cung (Heavenly Residence Grotto), Dau Go (Driftwood Grotto), Sung Sot (Surprise Grotto), and Tam Cung (Three Palace Grotto). Halong Bay has many interconnections to the history of Vietnam. For example, there are such famous geographical sites as Van Don (site of an ancient commercial port), Poem Mountain (with engravings of many poems about emperors and other famous historical figures), and Bach Dang River (the location of two fierce naval battles fought against foreign aggressors). It has been affirmed by scientists that Halong was one of the first cradles of human existence in the area at such archeological sites as Dong Mang, Xich Tho, Soi Nhu, and Thoi Gieng. It is also a region of highly-concentrated biological diversity with many ecosystems of salt water-flooded forests, coral reefs, and tropical forests boasting thousands of species of animal and plant life. With all this in mind, the 18th meeting of the Committee of the World Heritages of UNESCO (in Thailand on December 17th, 1994), officially recognized Halong Bay as a natural heritage site of worldwide significance.
Perfume Pagoda – Ha Tay – Vietnam
After 70 km or 2 hours driving out of Hanoi, situated on the limestone rocks of Huong Son Mountain in beautiful and mystical surroundings. Unlike other temples in Vietnam, the only way to reach this sanctuary is floating along a narrow but extremely poetic stream by rowing boats that will take 45 minutes. An iron boat can carry 3-5 people and a large wooden boat” up to 20 locals. The stream is surrounded by rice, grass, small paths, and temples here and there. A local pilgrim can spend here traditionally three days to visit the entire area and pray at all the temples. The first temple they often stop is called Den Trinh (i.e. The Shrine for First Presenting), where Vietnamese burn the first jossticks to inform the local deities about their presence and pray for a good trip and good luck for the coming year. If you are anxious to reach the main Wharf of Huong Son mountain to start the uphill trip to see the Main Grotto of Huong Tich, you may skip this temple, especially in the peak season between January and early April. The uphill trip takes an hour to climb on the ancient flat and sometime slippery stones, which have been here thousand years ago. The road is “breathtaking” in all aspects ” You will endure some exercise, while at the same time to have an opportunity to take some stops to take in the magnificent scenery and daily life of local farmers. The Farmers plant cassava and apricots in the valleys, that run quickly on the slippery stone with their burdens of tapioca, apricots or medicinal herbs whilst you are careful with your steps. The main pagoda is set in a huge grotto containing a highly decorative shrine. Each stalactite and stalagmite inside, which is soaked by undercurrent, is combined with a legend about its miracle and good luck. Most of them became small shrines by now. Remember that the stone grotto is huge and very cool, so stop for a while at the entrance to dry your sweat before coming in. The main festive days of Chua Huong stretches from January to early April, bustling and exciting. Sometimes it´s drizzling and the Vietnamese locals all believe that the real good things will reach you if you catch rainwater after praying in a sacred pagoda. And among all the sacred temples and pagodas in Northern Vietnam, Chua Huong is even more attractive and mysterious not only for its spectacular scenery, but for the painstaking road you passed over to reach to the top.
