It has been a long long time when we are all soaked in the worldly breath of big cities and gaspingly surrounded by packs of people and messes of life. Now it is time. It is the time we pack our bag to make an excursion we have long been waiting for, a reversion to the starting point of nature in this country – Central Vietnam.
1. Central Vietnam – the promise land where the earth meets the sky
In the three regions of Vietnam, the Middle is probably not as lucky for numerous of typhoons have caused serious incidents to the people’s life. Despite all that, the land is standing still like a true wonder, a true conquerer and there is no doubt that it has fought bravely and courageously with its people for all those years. Central Vietnam is though not a sleepless and crowded land as the South or is the center of the industry as the North, it still has so many things to be proud of.
The land includes three administrative regions of North Central Coast, South Central Coast and the Central Highlands with a total of 19 provinces in which Đà Nẵng is a municipality. Completely in contrast to the North and the South, it sometimes feels like the Middle is a pliant fillet of green silk connecting both parts of the country as where the earth and sky meet each other.
The Central always brings any visitors a kind of dear reminiscence. Everything seems to get slower and slower here as the time has gradually come to a stop. Coming to the middle land of the country, you will discover the gentleness of a purple Huế, sink in the calm embrace of the romantic Đà Lạt and be brought to an extreme adventure by Tây Nguyên. So let’s hurry and pack your bag because it is now or never.
2. Best time to travel Southern Vietnam
If you are in the North and want to travel Southern Vietnam to get to the Middle, there are many ways and the traveling time is also not too long. Usually, people will travel by plane from the North and a normal flight will take from 1 to 3 hours depending on the distance. For example, a flight from Hanoi to Hue will take about 1 hour 30 minutes.
Central Vietnam in the season
And as mentioned earlier, because Central Vietnam comprises three other administrative regions so depends on each, the weather will be considerably diversified. The best time to travel the North and South Central Coast is probably in the summer when the weather is a little bit dry but still better than the coldness in winter. What you should pay severe attention is not to travel North Central Coast from July to October and South Central Coast from October to December because those are the flood season here. If you tend to take a short trip to explore the wildland Tây Nguyên, May to October will be a perfect time.
3. Tour operators in Vietnam
As we have noted from the start, the journey will be traveling the Central Vietnam which includes all 19 administrative regions. Therefore, traveling Central Vietnam means traveling a lot!

4. Tourist attractions in Central Vietnam
Traveling to the Central means setting yourself a mission of exploring to the fullest and calming your desire and eagerness of a fast-flow life. When speaking of traveling to Central Vietnam, it is not just “traveling to the Central” but it is more like an adventure of where you will go, where you will stay from each play, how you can fit in the specific culture of each region that you pass through. The Middle is a wonderful place to be but it does not mean that everything will turn out just fine. Each region has a different kind of beauty, culture, and people. You may hear many accents or even languages traveling from this to that area. From the city life as in Đà Lạt or Huế, you may return to the starting point of the civilization in Tây Nguyên, befriend with elephants and nature. From Southern accent, it can change into ethnic languages. There say, the Central is a strange yet interesting place to at least enjoy once in life.
Huế’s Old Citadel
If you have not come to Hue then you have not traveled Central at all. Compared to Hanoi or Saigon, Hue is like the capital of the Central, standing majestically and poised through centuries of its once glory historic time. People say Hue is purple, the dreamlike purple sink through its cover, its people to the sceneries. Everything in Hue is slow, its kinds of working, serving to its people. Sometimes you may feel quite put off because you have not used to this life rhythm. However, if you stay for a few days, you will discover how sweet the people and the sights are. If you travel to Hue, remember to drop by the Old Citadel built in Nguyễn dynasty, Ao Dai Market to get yourself a customized Ao Dai, Perfume River and the night snack market at the foot of Truong Tien Bridge to enjoy the crowded life of Hue at night.

Đà Nẵng City
Just like Saigon, Da Nang is a sleepless city. There is always something so youthful, so fervent and urgent in Da Nang. It is like everything has been lit up a fire of enthusiasm making it so beautiful and wonderful place that you will want to come to live up your youth. Da Nang people are “young”, from their outward to the soul. At night, you will be stunned by the fantasy of the Dragon Bridge shining its vivid light through the beautiful curve of its body, you will be amazed by the magical movement of the spinning Han River Bridge and be soaked in the busy life in café and bars all around Da Nang. Coming to Da Nang, you should not miss Ba Na Hills, one of the largest entertaining area of the city; you should also drop by the Asian Park, My Khe Beach, the Love Bridge, Cu Lao Cham, My Son and so many other destinations waiting to be explored!

Hoi An Old City
If you have visited Hanoi’s Old Quarter then you will find there is something similar in Hoi An except for Hoi An is more deserted. In fact, Hoi An has something that brings the sensation of a little China with red lanterns and antique houses beautifully lit up at night. Most tourists after visiting Da Nang, they will drop by Hoi An because they are quite near (1 to2 hours by car). Hoi An is kind and romantic with everything seems to be the most original of Vietnam culture all lies still. Hoi An should be visited at night when you can capture the wonderful splendor of the Lantern Street, the magnificence of Hoai River where you can drop flower garlands and coloured lanterns. In addition, you will want to try some local specialties such as “cao lầu”, Ms.Kỳ’s chicken rice, corn sweeten porridge and so on.
