Phu Yen is the first destination that we introduce to you.
Phu Yen is a province in the South Central Vietnam. This is the place that you cannot miss when traveling to Vietnam because of its noticeable features.

In particular, you will see a wild beauty and the serene nature of Om beach – Rang beach. These 2 beaches are next to each other with coconut trees lying between them.
However, they are very different. While in Om beach you can see raging waves all days and nights, it is quite peaceful in Rang beach with blue pure water and white sand.
There are several islands to explore such as Cu Lao Mai Nha, Hon Nua, Hon Chua, etc.
One more interesting thing, in Cu Lao Mai Nha, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your most private time amongst imposing scenes of beaches and mountains.
In Phu Yen, tourists can enjoy fresh and delicious seafood, for example Goi Ca Mai, steaming scads, cuttlefish noodles, etc.
Fansipan is known as the roof of Indochina.

That is because Fansipan is the highest mountain top in Indochina with an altitude of 3143m. It attracts a lot of mountain climbers. Moreover, standing from the top, you can admire the wonderful landscapes of impressive mountains and forests.
April is one of the most suitable months to come to Fansipan for this month is the time when the azaleas bloom.
Thanks for favorable weather condition, this kind of flowers flourishes with a variety of colors: red, yellow, orange, purple, etc. Don’t forget to take some photos with the gorgeous azaleas.
Amazingly, April is also the time when the Azaleas Festival takes place, from March 31 to April 9. Coming to the festival, tourists can not only marvel at the beauty of flowers but also enjoy special cultural performances.

#3 Son Doong – Quang Binh
April is a suitable time to come to Quang Binh because, at that time, the weather is cool and comfortable.
Quang Binh attracts thousands of tourists with wonderful beaches and mysterious caves, particularly Son Doong Cave.
Do you know Son Doong Cave?
Son Doong Cave is the longest and biggest natural cave in the world.
The cave is located in Bo Trach Commune, Quang Binh Province.
Every year, the number of tourists who come there to explore is limited – only 800-900 people.
That is because of its expensive cost. To be specific, you have to spend about 3000 USD for a tour of 7 days and 6 nights in Son Doong Cave.
Besides, if tourists want to explore this wonder, they will need about 30 assistants who will accompany the visitors.
However, these things cannot prevent adventurous travelers from exploring Son Doong Cave.
Coming there, you will go into En Cave and contemplate impressive stalactites and a primeval forest with a rich vegetation.
What you see in the cave is entirely different from the outside world. In Son Doong, you will feel the magic of the Creator.
