I couldn’t argue more! While Sapa’s rice terraces are indeed impressive, I find the lesser-known town of Ha Giang to be even more awe-inspiring. The towering limestone karsts and winding roads offer a unique adventure that truly tests your sense of exploration. Trust me, it’s worth the visit!

The beaches are some of the best I have been to and I have gone to beaches in multiple areas. They are never overly crowded and when you go on a nice day, it feels amazing.

The mountain towns of Vietnam are unlike any other and I always tell people who are considering going to make that a trip. It is easy to settle in a big city but you gain so much more of the culture and beauty in the smaller towns.

I think as more people continue to travel to Vietnam, these places won’t be so secret anymore! Just the last time I visited, it seems to have more tourists where I was staying, especially at the beach!

I’m not sure if I agree with this list. It’s missing some of the best places in Vietnam.

For example, there’s this place called Mui Ne Beach that’s got all these amazing sand dunes and it’s just so beautiful. But yes, there are some treasures on this list too like Hue. This old city is so charming and the food is amazing!

I get what you mean, everyone has their own opinions. By the way, have you checked out Nha Trang? Hilarious beaches and outrageous seafood there. It’s like finding a hidden banana peel… or accidentally catching a clownfish while fishing. True story!
