Ta Dung Lake in Dak Nong Province is still new to tourists but already a popular spot for southern photographers. Ta Dung is dubbed the Ha Long Bay of the Central Highlands with 40 big and small islets amid the blue waters.

Hon Yen is in Tuy An District, some 20 km northeast of Tuy Hoa Town. Visitors to Hon Yen can see life in fishing villages, the busy traffic at sea and fishermen rushing to work in the early morning and afternoon.

Le Thuy beach in Binh Son District, central Quang Ngai Province is a major attraction because of the clear blue waters, cliffs, golden sandy beaches, and pristine landscapes.

The ancient town of Hoi An seen from above at dusk. A UNESCO world cultural heritage site in central Vietnam, it was voted by Travel & Leisure magazine as the worlds best city in 2019. 

Da Nang is well-known for its many beautiful beaches and modern resorts. Every summer the central city also attracts visitors to its international fireworks festival held on the banks of the Han River.

Terraced fields in Sa Pa in northern Lao Cai Province during harvest season. The best times to visit the terraced fields here are April to May (when the locals water their fields at full to prepare for a new crop) and August to September (harvest season). 

Visitors can take a cable car to Mount Fansipan, Southeast Asia’s highest point, visit Hoang Lien National Park and Muong Hoa Valley and experience the cultures of the HMong, Dao Do, and Tay ethnic minorities by staying in their homes.
