VIETNAM

Photography and Editing: Done by me

I travelled to Vietnam in June 2018 for a week (as you must have known from my Instagram series – #TheGlitterCrumbTravelDiaries) with my parents and both my sisters ❤

This is the first time I’ve been there, it was so much fun and beyond beautiful, so here is a super quick roundup on what to do in Vietnam.

Where to stay – 

  1. We visited Hanoi first and stayed at Intercontinental Hanoi Westlake, it was the perfect luxurious resort and so close to everything we wanted to do!
  2. From Hanoi we went to Halong Bay where we did an overnight cruise at Alisa Cruise. It was a beautiful experience and we did such fun things like visiting caves, climbing mountains, we visited the pearl farm village, there was also this cooking class, a sunset party and many other activities!
  3. After Halong Bay we headed to Da Nang where we stayed at the STUNNING Sheraton Grand Da Nang resort which was simply perfect for a tropical retreat!
  4.  We ended our trip by visiting Ho Chi Minh where we stayed at Sofitel and this was again perfect because it was close to every place we wanted to go see.

What to see – 

  1. We did a lot of sight seeing in Hanoi, where we went first and saw places like the Ho Chi Minh complex, the Presidential Palace, Ho Chi Minh’s house, the One Pillar Pagoda, the Buddhist Tran Quoc Pagada, Quan Thanah temple and it was all so beautiful!
  2. In Ho Chi Minh we went and saw the Cu Chi Tunnels, Renunification Palace, Opera House, My Tho, the Mekong River, Vinh Trang Pagoda. Everything had so much history to it and was simply stunning.

Where to shop –

  1. To get all of your retail therapy under one roof and in the best atmosphere with stores like Marks & Spencer, Zara, Bershka you should go to Royal City Vincom Mega Mall, Trang Tien Plaza in Hanoi and Aeon Mall, Diamond Plaza in Ho Chi Minh.
  2. If you want to get an authentic and traditional market experience you must go to places where there are cute boutiques, I went to one called Sadec District that offered a variety of things like art pieces, beautiful home décor (I was majorly lusting on everything), accessories and many more things. I strongly suggest you should go have a look!

Where to eat –

  1. So i’m a pure vegetarian and didn’t really enjoy the food there but I got such good italian and asian at the hotels I was staying in and it was beyond satisfying!
  2. For indian you can try Dalcheeni in Hanoi and Namaste in Da Nang.

This was almost everything we did when we visited Vietnam this year and I had such a fun time! Hope you do too! Here are a few photographs that I took for you to see ❤

Have a look! Happy viewing 🙂
