Discover the hidden gems of Vietnam

Vietnam is one of Asia's most beautiful countries. The nation draws many visitors from all over the world due to its thriving towns, stunning beaches with golden sand, and green highlands from North to South. However, overcrowding has resulted in some locations losing their pure beauty. Therefore, more tourists are searching for off-the-beaten-track destinations in Vietnam to enjoy the unspoiled nature and healthy tourism. Enjoy the list of the 5 most stunning undiscovered treasures from every region of Vietnam.

Mai Chau - Hoa Binh

Countless rice fields, villages of ethnic minorities, and a few small waterfalls may be found in a 30-kilometers drive from Mai Chau's bustling town center. Spend the day kayaking on Hoa Binh Lake, a lovely body of water surrounded by jungle-covered hills. Visit Pu Luong Nature Reserve instead, where cold, fresh streams meander through the forest, feeding waterfalls and turquoise pools. 

Emerald terrace fields that is too mesmerizing to be true

Ban Lac, Xom Panh, and other villages scattered around are home to friendly, rustic ethnic Thai and Hmong villages, with stilt houses and emerald green rice fields. Homestay is the choice if you want to experience highland life on a budget. Join in traditional Thai music and dances with the locals and get a little bit tipsy in their traditional alcohols.

Phan Rang - Ninh Thuan

Kitesurfing along the coastline, wine tasting at local vineyards, visiting Phuong Cuu salt field, sliding through Nam Cuong sand hills, exploring Nui Chua National Park… There are so many things to do in and around Phan Rang - the capital of Ninh Thuan

If you love to dive into local culture, Po Long Garai is a venue you shouldn't skip. Notable for its architecture, distinctive brick color, and sculptural patterns, the tower has long been a symbol of the Cham people. We advise visiting the Ninh Thuan museum first to learn about the local culture before touring the temple complex.

Located right at the beautiful Ninh Chu beach, Hoan My Resort Phan Rang is an ideal destination in the Ninh Thuan area that offers comforting accommodation, full-pack tours, and great service.

Ha Giang

The province of Ha Giang is among the venturesome places out there. Drive a loop through Ha Giang to see the most spectacular mountains in Vietnam, high passes, and the distinctive customs of the communities here. The best way to do the loop is by motorbike with an experienced guide, but a safer choice like by car is totally fine. 

Hoang Su Phi is not along the famous loop, but trekking lovers should not miss this off-the-beaten-track destination as beautiful terraced fields in the harvest season and local villages await them to explore. Don’t forget to reach the Lung Cu Flag Tower - the tallest flag tower in Vietnam, and check in at the most northern point of the country.
