British travel company suggests six best campsites in Vietnam

Culture Trip, a London-based online travel publication, suggested six best places to go camping in Vietnam that will capture visitors’ heart and soul.

Mu Cang Chai district, Yen Bai province

Located in the northeastern region of Vietnam, you can get to Mu Cang Chai after a considerably long ride from Hanoi – which means it’s as remote a place as there is.

Mu Cang Chai is known for its stunning landscapes, full of rice terraces dotted with tiny villages of ethnic minorities living in the region.

The best time to go camping here is between September and November, when the rice terraces turn yellow and the buckwheat flowers are blossoming.

Ta Xua commune, Son La province

The major attraction at Taa Xua is the magnificent view of a sea of clouds from the summit, Dinh Gio (Windy Peak).

To get up there you must pass through the Dinosaur Spine path, on which both sides are surrounded by a deep abyss.

The weather is most supportive from October to April.

Cuc Phuong National Park

Cuc Phuong National Park has borders over three provinces, and the majority of it is in Ninh Binh, a city known for its beautiful karst topography.

The park is made up of endless mountains and full of fun activities such as canoeing, bird watching, hiking and cave exploring.

Suoi Vang Lake, Lam Dong province

 

With cool weather all year, this spot is ideal to set up camp for the evening and wake surrounded by clouds. The scenery is magical.

Make sure to pack a jacket and sweats as you don’t want to be shivering through the night.

Trung Luong campsite, Binh Dinh province

Trung Luong campsite is 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) away from Quy Nhon city, having the advantage of being located on a pretty beach surrounded by beautiful nature.

Buy some fresh seafood on the way, start a fire and barbecue the night away. The following morning, spend the day exploring the corals underwater.

You may want to reserve your camping spot in advance as the area is quite small and spots may run out.

Cu Lao Xanh, Binh Dinh province

Cu Lao Xanh, a small island in Quy Nhơn, is known for being surrounded by clear turquoise water and dense with greenery.

Snorkeling, swimming, barbecuing by the beach and sunbathing are just a few ideas of activities while camping here.

Avoid this place during July and August, when storms are present. November till January are also not ideal.
