I think Vietnam is one of the greatest places in all of Asia. It’s steeped in exciting history, and has an unbelievable amount of beauty that just can’t be realised until you’ve seen it for yourself. The people of Vietnam make visiting all the more lovely; they are always cheery and polite. Without further adieu, here are some fun things to do in Vietnam if you’re thinking of visiting:

Have a Brew With a Local

There’s nothing better than drinking an old fashioned brew, but what about enjoying one in the company of a Vietnamese local? If you make your way up to the tribal villages in the hills by Sapa, then you’re sure to be invited into their rustic homes for a drink to wet your whistle. You can even view Sapa and many other places with Vietnam tours from Adventure World.

Learn How to Cook, Vietnamese Style

Vietnamese cooking is delicious, and learning to cook is lots of fun. This must mean that learning to cook Vietnamese style is the best way to do it! You can find many classes on offer with gourmet chefs, so don’t miss out if you want to take some skills home to impress your friends.

Six Senses Con Dao Beach

This place is the perfect place to just relax and have some ‘you’ time. You could literally spend hours here just whiling away the days; meditating, relaxing, reading, exploring – you name it! The white sand beach is stunning. You haven’t seen true natural beauty until you’ve seen this!

Take a Bike Ride

Riding a bike is very good for us, but in Vietnam it’s so much fun. If you want a unique way to explore, you can’t get better than hiring a bike. Riding through the streets of Hoi An is amazing, and you’ll get to see all of the cultural influences of Southeast Asia as you do so.

Go on a Cruise

A private, overnight cruise that is! Wouldn’t you like to explore Vietnam on a traditional Chinese sailboat? You’ll get to see some of the most beautiful places in all of Asia, as well as people kayaking, sea fishing, and more.

Visit the Egg Mud Baths

This might sound quite strange for you, but it’s definitely one of the best things to do in Vietnam. It’s around £10 to enter, and within a few moments you’ll be floating in a plastic egg covered in mud. Next to a mountain. Honestly, it’s a lot of fun! It’s also great for your health; it’ll make you look and feel younger, cleanse your pores, and bestow unto you a whole load of minerals. It’s only around 20 minutes, but that’s plenty of time to enjoy all of the benefits floating inside a plastic egg covered in mud has to offer. Afterwards, you can even have a massage before enjoying a nice lunch.

As you can see, Vietnam is full of fun things to see and do. This isn’t all though; you’re sure to discover a plethora of amazing things to do there once you arrive. Remember to keep your wits about you and you’ll have a fab time!
