Vietnam is a fascinating travel destination with various world-class attractions that are bound to fill your days with awe and adventure. However, some remote areas of the country offer a lot more to marvel at.

The Ha Giang Province in the east of the Red River is one of the less travelled sections of Vietnam. Limestone and granite landscapes line the province to create beautiful sceneries. Its proximity to the Chinese border is one reason the province doesn’t receive many visitors as it is the final frontier in the north.

The Vietnamese coastline is famous for its exquisite beaches, but you can trade in the favourites in Ho Coc and My Tho for the sparsely inhabited Ganh Da Dia coastline. You will encounter fishing villages with very little life and sparkling beaches that are not overpopulated with honeymooners. The sand dunes are very impressive also.

Phu Dien is another remote part of Vietnam you can head to for a spectacular coast. The Cham Temple used to be buried in sand dunes, and its ruins are an extraordinary vision. With various seafood places, it’s not hard to have a great time here.

Ho Chi Minh City offers several attractions, with some being more famous than others. The Museum in Ho Chi Minh is one spot that may not get very much attention. The various exhibits in the galleries are symbolic of different eras in Vietnam.

Hon Gai Peninsula is also a surprising find that will have you going back in no time. The area is between Ninh Hoa and Tuy Hoa to the north of Nha Trang. Discover stretches of unexplored beaches that are characterised by very high sand dunes.

Remote Vietnam is worth your time if you know where to look. Most of the places that are off the beaten path may present some infrastructure challenges. Prepare to find your own transport in some regions and struggle for accommodation in others, but that is part of the fun.
