You can either choose Western-style shows like a circus, dance, or orchestra or traditional ones like water puppetry, Vietnamese opera (Cai Luong), and tally card songs (Ca Tru). You may not understand a word, but that’s what makes it a unique experience. After all, Valentine’s Day is not for cliché things, right?

View The City from Beautiful Bridges

Bridges are beautiful places to view a city from a different perspective. When lights go on and the sky is embellished with sparkling stars, you will feel how romantic and miraculous the town can be. In the cool breeze from the rivers and canals, hold your loved one’s hands and gaze upon the city’s skyline.

Go on A Motorbike Tour

Motorbikes are the ultimate vehicles in Vietnam. Thus, why not take Valentine’s Day as a chance to go for a ride? Since Vietnam’s road system can be complicated, map out the directions beforehand. If you are not confident with your driving, look for private motorbike tours that allow you to adjust the schedule and destinations.
