Vietnam Honeymoon Guide
Consider a honeymoon or romantic getaway adventure in Vietnam, and discover an intriguing land of overwhelming natural beauty, rich in culture and tradition and overflowing with adventure.
Since the reunification of North and South Vietnam in 1975, which ended years of war, Vietnam has gone through a renaissance.
Today this resilient nation bursts with optimism and commercial energy, allowing visitors access throughout the country and offering a range of adventure options, typically within easy reach of fine cuisine and accommodation to suit every budget.
On an adventure to Vietnam, hike through the Hoang Lien Mountains to Sapa and visit ethnic hill tribes.
Kayak between jagged limestone islets in Halong Bay, cruise the Perfumed River in Hue, discover the beautiful coastal beach resort of Nha Trang, dive into the pristine waters around Phu Quoc and explore the Mekong Delta by boat or by bicycle.
Or crawl through the claustrophobic wartime Cu Chi tunnels near Saigon or the Vinh Moc tunnels near Hue, duck into the command bunker of defeated French General De Castries at Dien Bien Phu and see wrecked fighter jets at the War Remnants Museum in Saigon.
Experience Hanoi’s tree-lined boulevards, lakes and belle époque villas; explore palaces and the famous citadel in the ancient imperial city of Hué; and dive into bustling Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) for shopping bargains.
Lacquer painting, embroidery, tailor-made ao dais and mother-of-pearl inlayed ornaments are all great buys in Vietnam.
As a general rule, the best time to visit areas north of Nha Trang is during the months of April, May or October; however for regions south of Nha Trang aim for the cool, dry months between November and February.
Geographically, Vietnam is spread across two different climatic zones with opposing monsoon seasons: a cooler northern zone, with winter from November to April and summer from May to October, and a warmer, tropical southern zone, with a hot and humid climate, much like the rest of Southeast Asia.
The northeast monsoon brings cool, dry weather to Vietnam between November and April while the southwest monsoon brings hot, wet weather from May to October.
