Top Destinations in Central Vietnam to Escape from Holiday’s Crowds

Go Diving at Ly Son Island

Ly Son Island is located in the northeast of Quang Ngai Province. It combines two small islands named Big Island and Small Island, and Mu Cu Islet with no inhabitants. Known as “the kingdom of garlic,” Ly Son Island is known for its hospitality, extensive beaches, and gorgeous scenery. You can go to Ly Son Island to enjoy the beach from June to September for the sunny season. Or come and visit this place from September to early December to learn more about the island’s specialty – garlic.

You can visit the To Vo archway – the most beautiful archway formed by natural lava in Vietnam, to enjoy the sunrise and sunset. You don’t want to miss Thoi Loi (Gieng Tien) Mountain, formed by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago for the spectacular view of the sea, mountain, and sky. Mu Cu Islet and Small Island (An Binh Island) are some natural spots you may want to visit.

Bask in Quy Nhon’s Wind

Most tourists would recall Nha Trang as one of the best beaches in Vietnam. However, the city gets overcrowded quickly during the holiday season. On the contrary, Quy Nhon sounds unfamiliar to tourists, but this is where you can enjoy Vietnam’s stunning coast line without finding yourself lost in the sea of people. There are quite many activities for you, both relaxing and active:

  • Visit local fishing villages
  • Snorkel and swim
  • Explore Champa architecture at Cham temples
  • Enjoy the sunset at Eo Gio
  • Stroll around secluded, pristine beaches

The best time to visit is from January to March, when the rainy season is over.

Go Camping in Da Lat

Even though Da Lat is a tourist-centric city, you can find your favorite camping sites to enjoy your private time among the beautiful nature here. All of them are famous, and each has its own beauty and what you are looking for: peacefulness.

Some good spots for camping in Da Lat you can consider are Da Phu Hill, Golden Valley, Golden Stream,& Tuyen Lam Lake

Da Lat is famous for its camping sites and amazing natural beauty. However, for its dry season, you should travel to Da Lat from November to June.

Pick up your favorite camping spot from the list of the Best Places for Camping in Vietnam. Dong Cao Platue (Bac Giang Province), Mount Ham Lon (Hanoi), Con Co Island (Quang Tri Province), Binh Ba (Khanh Hoa Province), etc, are also beautiful places to camp and to refresh your mind.

Have Fun at Suoi Mo Park

Located in Dong Nai Province and a 2-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City, the recreational park Suoi Mo Park, popularly known as the “heaven of the sea on the forest,” is full of stunning scenery and relaxing activities. In addition to its natural beauty, this location features a lake, waterfalls, an in-ground swimming pool about 1.5 meters deep, and a gorgeous natural landscape.

You can try water cars, some shaped like swans or vehicles to cruise around the lake. Moreover, you can feed the Koi fish using the baby bottle or swim in the natural pool with a sand-filled bottom.

Escape to Green Stone Lake (Ho Da Xanh)

If you find beaches in Vung Tau are filled with crowds, you can head to Green Stone Lake from 8 AM to 6 PM with a free ticket. At Green Stone Lake, you can take many nice photos with the clear and blue water, cottages, or the swing.

You should bring some fast food and water since there aren’t many food stalls here, and the prices are relatively high. However, going to a peaceful sea-like place in the crowded Vung Tau is a great way to escape from the holiday crowds.

Relax at Con Dao Islands

There are a lot of beaches where you can sunbathe, swim, and have fresh seafood for lunch or dinner. There is a beach called Bai An Hai right next to the town. It connects Ben Dam Harbour to several beachfront resorts and fishing villages. Rent a motorbike and drive south to Mui Ca Map (Shark Cape) and Nhat Beach if you prefer privacy.
