Vietnam School Tours loves nothing more than reading positive reviews of the country we know and love – Vietnam! And recently there has been a slew of great media that has really helped promote this amazing country. So much so that the number of international visitors arriving in Vietnam this July reached over 800,000 which represented a 42% increase over this time last year!
Conde Nast Traveler, one of the world's premier luxury and lifestyle travel magazines, has recently named Sapa, Hoi An Town and Halong Bay among the Top 50 most beautiful places to visit in Asia!
Sapa which is famous for its fresh, cool air, rugged countryside and unforgettable scenery is also one of the most intriguing trekking destinations in Vietnam. Vietnam School Tours loves organising treks for school groups through this region as it provides that perfect blend of culture and challenge – two ingredients that we believe are so important to expose our student groups to.
Hoi An in central Vietnam is surrounded by some of the best beaches in the world and has such a unique personality. So much so that all our school groups who visit Hoi An regularly rate it as one of their most memorable stops - and we absolutely agree. An Old Town frozen in time, great shopping and cuisine, awesome day tours dripping with culture and fun and golden beaches close at hand, Hoi An has it all. And speaking of reviews, Wanderlust travel magazine recently asked its huge reader base to name their favourite city in the world for their 2016 travel awards. And the overwhelming winner – Hoi An!
The jewel in Vietnam’s crown really is Halong Bay and any trip to Vietnam would not be complete without a visit to this place of such unmistakable beauty. Likened to a scene straight out of a story book, with its thousands of limestone karsts jutting out of the emerald green waters, Halong Bay is absolutely unforgettable.
In addition to all the wonderful travel reviews about the beautiful beaches, delicious food, charming scenery and awesome trekking, Vietnam was also recently ranked among the safest tourist destinations in the whole world! This was certainly wonderful recognition and certainly well deserved.
