According to the website, October represents the beginning of the dry season in the country’s northern and southern regions, where monumental natural spectacles and buzzing city scenes can both be enjoyed.
Condé Nast Traveler revealed that Sa Pa is renowned for being the gateway to misty treks, while Hanoi is famous for locals sipping condensed-milk coffees on low plastic stools. The capital city is also home to a range of outstanding local cuisine.
“Down at the bottom, the Mekong Delta is a whole world bobbing on canals and streams; and Ho Chi Minh City is where the bohos go - don’t miss The Café Apartment, a nine-storey block stuffed with fairy-lit mini-boutiques and craft coffee stores,” the article stated.
Rounding the list of top 30 list are destinations such as Málaga of Spain, the Ningaloo Reef of Australia, Darjeeling of India, Churchill of Canada, the Japanese Alps, Atacama Desert of Chile, and the Lake District of the UK.
