There’s many things to do in Vietnam
You can’t find more rural grit than at the Mekong Delta. From floating markets to houseboats, fishing boats and the Mother Mekong, life on the river is all about rice and commerce. (Southern Vietnam)
3. Take in a water puppet show
Theater is the voice of the people; it’s the laughter, sorrow and joys which moves people to seek it out as entertainment. It’s not got fancy pyrotechnics,revolving stages or high-wire daredevil feats. What it’s got is more simply a great idea— puppets performing in water!Incidentally, this wins my 3rd spot, beating out Halong Bay, simply because although Halong Bay is very striking, it takes a long time to get there.
4. Get a haute couture suit or dress made in Hoi An
It’s no secret that Hoi An bores the best and speediest tailors in all of Vietnam and Southeast Asia. You can take the latest haute couture design to them and have them custom tailor it for you for less than you’d ever buy it in a store.
5. Take a Motorcycle tour of the countryside
The Vietnamese are masters on the motorcycle and there’s some nice motorbike routes to take through the countryside.
