Far East Adventure Travel Best of “Live”-Vietnam

In this episode of The Best Of Far East Adventure Travel “Live” highlights from two great spots to visit in Southern Vietnam. The hill station town of Dalat and Vietnam’s largest beach resort, Nha Trang. Two completely different experiences both filled with adventure activities and beautiful scenery.

Dalat is a wonderful break from the tropics, especially on an extended stay in the country. At 1500 meters elevation Dalat offers relief from the heat and humidity, but you’ll need a sweater or jacket for the evening.

It’s Vietnam’s honeymoon capital with lots of French colonial buildings and even a replica of the Eiffel Tower. I found the local people extremely outgoing and friendly. Dalat’s streets reminded me of Nepal and hill stations in India.

Nha Trang has a beautiful 6km beach overlooking picturesque outer islands, lots of restaurants, cafes, and day outing options including a huge amusement park with the world’s longest over the ocean gondola.

Nha Trang attracts Russian tour groups, evident with the language on many restaurant menus, and the speedo bathing suits patrolling the beach. It’s obviously touristy but the mood of being “on vacation” is infectious.

I hope you enjoy these highlights of what I believe are some must see destinations in Southern Vietnam.
