Top 3 travelroutes in Vietnam
Vietnam has been the first country added to GeckoRoutes as it requires quite a lot of planning and has many transport options to reach each route.
To give you some extra help with planning your trip to Vietnam, I created a top 3 of my favourite destinations in Vietnam. These destinations are Sa Pa, Halong Bay and Hoi An. Continue reading if you want to know why these are my favourite!
- Exploring the breathtaking karst mountains in Halong Bay or Cat Ba is something you cannot leave out of your itinerary. Check the route of how to get from Hanoi to Halong Bay to find your best options or to book a boat cruise including transport from Hanoi.
- Want to explore the magnificent ricefields in Sa Pa? Travelling by train from Hanoi to SaPa is one of our favourite routes in Vietnam! Thanks to the sleeper train, you can get a good night of sleep during this 8-hour journey to the stunning rice fields in the North of Vietnam!
- Looking for a vibrant and cultural city in Vietnam? Hoi An is the favourite destination of many travellers. This charming had a lot of international influence as it used to be one of the most important trade ports in Vietnam. You can either take a bus, train or flight to travel from Hanoi to Hoi An.
Another upcoming destination in Vietnam is Tam Coc. Tam Coc is a small village in Ninh Binh province. Ninh Binh is often called the dry Halong Bay, referring to the gorgeous landscape of limestone rocks that many travellers remember of Halong Bay. It only takes about 2 hours to travel from Hanoi to Ninh Binh by bus. So if you have a few extra days left, don’t forget to include Tam Coc in your Vietnam itinerary!
