If you’re looking for a new vacation destination, then look no further. Full of beautiful locations, great food and unbelievable prices, it’s no surprise that so many people have been choosing to travel to Vietnam for their next vacation. If you’re planning your trip or even if you’re still on the fence, here are some of the coolest things you can do in Vietnam in 2020.
Decorate Your Own Lantern at Hoi An
Part of the Vietnamese New Year celebration, each year Hoi An is transformed into a colourful masterpiece. For a full week, one particular road becomes the home for an unbelievable number of lanterns. Tourists are also encouraged to design and release their own beautiful lanterns. It’s probably the closest you’ll come to recreating that scene from Tangled.
Visit the Cao Dai Temple
Vietnamese churches are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before and this one is no exception. Filled floor to ceiling with beautiful colors and surprising artwork. This temple is home to one of the most interesting religions, Caodaism, a combination of a surprising amount of other religions you may not suspect. It’s worth a Google. Prayers can take place up to 4 times a day. To help you keep an eye on your timings, why not check out these watches from galle, a popular Vietnamese watch seller to make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to witness one of these sermons for yourself.
Cross a Bridge Held Up by the Gods Themselves
An absolute marvel in engineering, this bridge towers an eye-watering height above the beautiful Ba Nang province. But it isn’t the bridge itself that has made this attraction one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam. The bridge is seemingly ‘held up’ by a pair of god-like hands carved entirely from stone. An absolute must for your Instagram.
