Searching for best pho in Hanoi is worth-a-try experience: CNN

Pho is a popular dish in Vietnam.

CNN, a US news cable network, has suggested 13 can’t-be-missed experiences when traveling to Vietnam including savoring a bowl of pho in Hanoi.

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is considered the birthplace of the de facto national dish, so CNN makes sense when suggesting travelers to seek for the best bowl of pho in the capital.

“Wedged between grand colonial French buildings in the labyrinthine Old Quarter, the best pho shops are often the most unassuming, filled with modest furniture, if any at all, and epic cauldrons of bubbling broth”, CNN wrote.

The network hinted two best traditional pho shops in the city that undeniably please the cravings namely Pho Gia Truyen at 49 Bat Dan, the Old Quarter and Pho Thin at 13 Lo Duc street.

CNN also listed promising distinct adventures in Vietnam, including tea plantations, coffee farms, stunning bays, caves, and coastlines.

 

Accordingly, the article suggested tourists should once take part in the lantern lighting activities in Hoi An on the little lanes of the Old Town as well as on the Thu Bon river to see the most mesmerizing scene of “thousands of rainbow-hued lanterns glow against an inky black sky”.

Besides, people are suggested to trace history in Ho Chi Minh City by commemorating lives lost in war and gain a better understanding of the conflict in some museums and monuments across the city.

There are other amazing experiences on the CNN list including ride the Reunification Express train, taking an aerial tour of Halong Bay, enjoying the most beautiful beaches in Phu Quoc island, cruising down Mekong river, exploring Son Doong, the world largest cave, taking a motorbike ride through the majestic north, soaking up tea culture in Sapa, enjoying strong coffee in Dalat, making vermicelli noodles in Cu Da village, and Cycling around Hue’s ancient ruins.
