Great suggests! I think each city has something different to offer and people should consider each one when planning their trip. I always recommend staying in at least two so you can get more from your trip!


Having been to each one, some shorter stays than others, I think these are all amazing recommendations. Especially for someone new to the area. If you ever travel to Vietnam for the first time, be sure to make one of these cities your first trip!


Hanoi is probably going to forever be my favorite place to visit in Vietnam. I have been to most on the list and loved them all but Hanoi has a special place in my heart. 


All amazing suggestions. Really, most cities in Vietnam are amazing to travel to it just depends on what your plans are and how you want to enjoy your stay. 


I am planning to visit Vietnam in a few months. I’m looking forward to going to Vietnam for the first time!
