New Zealand newspaper praises Vietnam’s tourist attractions


The NZ Herald compared Hoi An to a miniature Venice, supposed that Ho Chi Minh City is suitable for brave travelers and the Mekong Delta is a land of joy…

New Zealand’s NZ Herald called Vietnam an inspiring place for international tourism after Covid-19. This newspaper pointed out the preferable reasons to come to Vietnam for New Zealand visitors, in which they appreciate many destinations from North to South.

First, the newspaper praised Vietnam’s rich ethnic mix, considering it one of Southeast Asia’s most culturally diverse countries. Everything changes spectacularly from the northern mountainous provinces such as Lao Cai, Ha Giang with the culture of ethnic minorities to Phu Quoc island (Kien Giang). The newspaper also praised the island’s transformation, from a wild place to a tourist destination with many attractive services, good infrastructure and many enriched experiences such as diving, watching the sunset and enjoying the longest sea cable car in the world… If you want to experience more about the differences of ethnic groups, do not forget to visit the Vietnamese Museum of Ethnology in Hanoi.

Ha Long Bay (Quang Ninh), Hanoi, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City, Cat Tien National Park (Dong Nai), Mekong Delta… are places worth visiting in Vietnam. In Ha Long, visitors are suggested to explore on luxury yachts, enjoy high-class service and food. The newspaper used the word “key” for Hanoi, as it is a must-visit place to have a better understanding of Vietnam. Let’s take a walk in the French architecture Quarter and Opera House. Contrasting with the classic European look is the bustle of the ancient quarter.

Hoi An is likened to a small Venice version by the newspaper. There are a few “tourist traps” but this is also a romantic getaway with timeless beauty. Cat Tien National Park is a unique experience to visit the beauty of Vietnam’s tropical forests with precious animals. Ho Chi Minh City is a place of “rush, frenzy, chaos, non-stop” where visitors can experience the pulse of a modern Vietnam. The writer, Nigel Richardson, wittily writes “If brave, walk here, immerse yourself in the streets and alleys”…

The newspaper called The Mekong Delta is the “land of joy” with its river life and floating markets. Here, the most interesting travel experience is to explore the land by riding a boat. If you want to learn more about the Vietnam war, go to the Cu Chi tunnels or Con Dao island. In particular, Con Dao is attractive with incredibly gorgeous beaches.
