Three destinations of Vietnam among SEA Best Places
VietNamNet Bridge –The US-based travel website www.touropia.com has revealed the list of 29 best places to visit in Southeast Asia, including Hoi An, Hanoi, and Ha Long Bay of Vietnam.
The capital city blends the charm of the old world with a pace of life that is quickening as this old city modernizes. Touropia suggested that travellers should not miss to visit Old Quarter, an open-air museum of historic Asian and French colonial architecture that has largely remained intact.
Also known as Fai-Fo, Hoi An ancient town boasts a well-preserved Southeast Asian trading port, which it once was until the river silted up. The narrow, winding lanes of the old port are lined with beautiful old architecture, traditional wooden houses and hundreds of tailor shops selling everything from clothing to souvenirs, Touropia noted.
Located in northeastern Vietnam, Ha Long Bay resembles a scene from a fantasy story with its thousands of limestone karst islands of different shapes and sizes. Four fishing villages composed of floating houses where the occupants fish for 200 different fish and 450 kinds of mollusks, can be found on Ha Long Bay.
