Things to Do in Vietnam

 

Motorbiking
It is becoming increasingly popular to rent an old 125cc Russian (Minsk) bike - and ride from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City. Riddle with all kinds of challenges, not least avoiding all the bicycles in the cities, this adventure will be an exciting experience!


Meeting Local people
The best way to meet locals is to pull up a plastic chair in one of many side-walk bars, and order a beer, fresh peanuts and quails eggs and simply get chatting with local people. Even with a language barrier, you'll be sure to have a fascinating and memorable evening!


Hiking
There are hundreds of hiking trails across the country from long distance treks to short trail walks, there is also significant infrastructure for visitors who want tour guided hiking. Head south from Hanoi to Cuc Phuong National Park, for a wilderness of forested limestone mountains rising from the green rice fields, where you'll see many rare species, and you can visit the primate rescue centre. Be sure to spend the night with a family from a Muong hill tribe in one of their traditional stilt houses.


Cooking Lessons
Learn the subtleties of Vietnamese cooking at a class in Hoi An. Become engulfed in the hustle and bustle of a market to buy provisions before retreating to the calm of the kitchen. The best part of the day - you can eat what you have prepared under the guidance of a Vietnamese chef!


Shopping
For anyone interested in fine arts and crafts, Vietnam is a nirvana. Wooden water puppets, ingenious mechanisms, silk clothing, lacquers, ceramics, handbags, colourful hill tribe robes and hand-painted silk greeting cards are all available for you to choose from. Clothing is fantastic value and high quality - tailors can make clothes for you 24 hours in many places, especially in Hoi An.


Every town and city have one or more markets and they always worth a visit as much for the experience as the actual shopping. For those wanting more modern comforts, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City have seen the emergence of shopping malls selling luxury brands - international and domestic.


In small shops and markets be sure to negotiate for any item that catches your eye, but remember to keep it jovial! Many souvenir shops in major towns and cities now have fixed prices and unfortunately won't budge on price, no matter how hard you try!


Shopping hours:
Shops are generally open seven days a week 0800-2000; some are open until 2200hours.


Nightlife in Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City is packed with bars and clubs ranging from sidewalk restaurants to rooftop bars. Most nightlife is concentrated in District 1, Hanoi's nightlife is much quieter, and the streets may appear quiet after 10pm. The smaller places tend to be concentrated here in the Old Quarter and around Hoan Kiem Lake.


Live music is mostly limited to acts from Vietnam, Thailand and Philippines performing in hotels, with a few bars hosting local jazz and rock bands. Elsewhere, nightlife is often limited to bars and small hotels but there is a growing  bar/cafe scene, especially in Hoi An in Vietnam central. For travelers looking for something more cultural, be sure to book tickets for a theatre show about the water puppet. Hoi's pubs also provide an interesting social experience, and friendly local people will often talk to visitors. Food and snacks such as boiled quails eggs are also commonly available. Traditional music and dance is played in some restaurants in the main tourist areas, especially Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Da Nang and Hue.
