- A trip to the beautiful nature
May is a pretty period of time in places across the country. The North remains a little spring breeze and doesn’t change to summer heat yet. This is also fruitful, so there will be nothing better than coming to terraced fields, fruit gardens in Yen Bai, Ha Giang or Bac Kan.
The cool weather as well favors your trip to visit Ha Long Bay or swim in Sam Son, Cua Lo. Golfers can combine playing golf and relaxation at FLC Ha Long or FLC Sam Son, which is high-class and high-quality.
Another option out of sunny and windy beaches is discovering the Northern river lands. The Mekong Delta has four-holy-beast isle in Ben Tre – My Tho, Melaleuca forests in Dong Thap, visitors can also try alligator-fishing or ostrich-riding in Can Tho… Moreover, the special cuisines such as larvae coconut worm, rice field rat, fish sauce hotpot, snakehead fish, mini crab, will make your trip memorable and impressive moments.
