It is said that if you are not trying a night bus or a sleeping train in Vietnam you came for nothing here. 😀 Vietnam has around 2000 km from North to South and these are great ways to travel the distance.

Cat Ba Island, Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay, Vietnam This northern part of Vietnam is perhaps the one with the most spectacular sea views. I consider it the landmark of Vietnam.
