From my point of view; no matter what is your traveling style, you will have anything from nature reserves to the food and experiencing weird things to ancient and history exploration. Sapa, is a region in northern Vietnam with border to China, this is my favorite destination in Vietnam, the reason is the far i went the more i experience the unique and authentic ethnic culture of Vietnam, Hue and Hoi An were the unique places for me to see more of history of Vietnam. oh, i forgot, Ho Chi Minh City is the hustle and bustle of Vietnam, i called it NY city of east so far.
Vietnam is a touristic destination, however, locals are very warm hearted with a good smile on their face all the time, the younger students are very keen to stop foreigner to practice English with, they are very curious about west (though im not from the west) and other cultures, asking me a lot of questions about my foods, culture, difference between Vietnam and my country and one great thing, they love to take selfies. A great place to chill out with local would be Hanoi’s Hoan Kiem lake where there are a lot of tourists strolling around.
Travel to Vietnam and or other neighboring destinations, the country itself is a connection destination to Indochina. If you travel style is to spend more time in destination you travel to, then, Vietnam and perhaps Indochina (Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar as well as Thailand) is your place to be, there are a lot of travelers who are traveling not only to Vietnam but to its neighboring countries, the reason is because you can cross the borders via bus (if you have more time like me),flights are pretty reasonable as i got a flight from Hanoi to Bangkok with only $ 70.
