Activities

Vietnam has 3450km (2140mi) of coastline, allowing tourists and travelers alike to take advantage of the tropical weather and ocean front resorts. The most popular beaches include Vung Tau, just north of the Mekong Delta; Nha Trang, near Dalat; the 30km-long expanse of beaches named China Beach, near Danang - but be careful of the currents.

Listed here are some of the more popular activities that Vietnam has to offer:

Cycling: With warm weather and lots of sun, Vietnam is ideal for long-distance cycling. Since much of the country is flat and there is a shortage of vehicles, traffic is light to non-existent, unlike many other Asian countries where bicycle jams can rival traffic in Manhattan. Bicycle taxis are widely available and recommended for those wishing to relax and enjoy Vietnam’s natural beauty.
 
Water Sports: In total, Vietnam has 3260km (2021 miles) of coastline. Snorkeling and diving equipment can be hired at most beach resorts. Other good beaches can be found at Phan Thiet (south-central coast); Mui Ne (noted for its large sand dunes); and the magnificent Ha Long Bay, where some 3000 islands, covered in lush vegetation and dotted with beaches and grottoes, rise out of the Gulf of Tonkin. Access to the islands is by boats, which can be hired in Ha Long City.
   
Hiking: There is good hiking and horse riding in the beautiful countryside around Da Lat. Guides are recommended and can be hired locally. Generally, the northwest is the best region for hiking. Other good destinations include Cuc Phuong National Park (near Hanoi); Bach Ma National Park; and Lang Bian Mountain (in Da Lat), where guides are compulsory. In the north, Cat Ba National Park on Cat Ba Island and Ba Be Lake National Park (which contains several lakes, waterfalls and caves) also offer beautiful scenery.
   
Other: Caving enthusiasts may head for the spectacular Pong Nha river caves, northwest of Dong Hoi. Boat trips are particularly popular in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam’s southernmost region, which consists of an intricate network of rice paddies, swamps and forests interlaced with canals and rivers. River cruises also operate on the Saigon River (a good way to see Saigon) or the Perfume River (near Hue).
