Amazing 4 best places to visit in Vietnam for a fun vacation



Yes, its true when it comes to flight booking we think about Thailand or Maldives first but we always forget that there is a country in south east Asia that offers much more than party hubs of Thailand. Yes, I am talking about Vietnam - a paradise on earth. However, when it comes to Vietnam we always think about its famous war. I used to think about the same but everything changed when I visited this lovely paradise on earth. From pristine beaches to UNESCO world heritage sites, there is so much to see here or in other words, It is a complete gem.  

Vietnam is enriched in culture and history with its mouthwatering food everywhere. And If I talk about the places, they are abundant and to see all you need minimum 3 weeks. In addition, everything is cheap here with good standards around the city. Though, this 1 page article is not enough to articulate my thoughts about Vietnam. However, I can give you a little bit brief about its places before you book your flights. I would suggest everyone to visit Vietnam above all other places before it gets too touristy and expensive to reach out.

Hey, I'm Bharat and clown on a holiday is my creation to document my travel journey. This blog is a medium to preserve my memories and to share it with everyone. What's the point of seeing places on internet if you cannot experience it. That is why I am on a mission to take me far and see the amazing world and experience it. If using right tools, traveling can be very cheap and will take you to see the wonders of the world. In addition, you can set your destinations and see the cultures, explore the places and eat the food at your own pace. I am not a full time traveler yet and always come back to my home country India after every trip. I never travel solo as I don't need to and don't want to. So I am always on road with a friend and it could be my family, friends or any like-minded person. I know for sure that this blog will inspire so many people in my life or people who I haven't met yet. This could help them to step out of their comfort zone and plan something for themselves.
