One of these countries is VietnamAnd you can also find a lot of great offers for your holidays.
From all over the country, Hanoi, its capital, and also a city with a lot of charm that is a mixture of colonial environments with Asian classics, is especially striking, making it look really cool. I leave you a few places of interest in Hanoi so you can organize your trip:
– Old neighborhood: It is north of Han Kiem Lake and there are a lot of streets where you can see artisans working in various workshops where you can buy the most typical products and handicrafts in the city. In this area there are also a lot of shops for many things such as fabrics, jewelry, porcelain, wood or medicinal herbs.
– Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum: It is located in the historic Ba Dinh Square and houses the rest of Ho Chi Minh City in an impressive coffin made of glass. To visit it you have to go with moderately decent clothes and with a very respectful attitude at all times since if you do not do it you could have problems with the authorities.
– Ho Chi Minh Museum: It is also in Ba Dinh Square and is the place where tribute is paid to a man who was so important in the history of the country as the first President of the Republic of Vietnam. There you will see a lot of memories and objects that belonged to him or that had some special significance during his tenure.
– One Pillar Pagoda: It is one of the most spectacular places in the city, a temple of literature that is ideal if you are a lover of this art but that although you are not it is highly recommended that you visit it.
