Central Vietnam has “got it all”

Central Vietnam is “one of the country's best-kept secrets,” says The South China Morning Post. “There are sandy beaches with stylish hotels, Unesco World Heritage Sites and top golf courses,” and Da Nang International Airport has flights to “a growing list of domestic and regional travel destinations.” Central Vietnam has got it all, insists Vietnam Coracle: “temples, beaches, mountains, jungle, historic old cities, dynamic new cities, tropical islands, and delicious regional cuisine.”

Here’s how Lonely Planet summarises the key attractions of Central Vietnam:

“Marvel at Hue and its imperial citadel, royal tombs and excellent street food.”

“Savour the unique heritage grace of riverside jewel Hoi An, and tour the military sites of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ).”

“Check out Danang, fast emerging as one of the nation’s most dynamic cities.”

“Also emerging as a must-visit destination is the extraordinary Phong Nha region, home to three gargantuan cave systems (including the world’s largest cave), and a fascinating war history concealed amid stunning scenery.”

And here are two useful lists: ‘9 wonderful experiences in the Central Highlands of Vietnam’ (Living Nomads) and ‘3 places worth visiting in Central Vietnam apart from Hoi An’ (Student Universe)
