Perhaps the most diverse part of Vietnam, the central region is filled with national parks, varying landscapes, some of the best beaches in the country, fascinating war history and plenty of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Venture into Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park where Asia’s oldest karst mountains reside, as well as the extraordinary Son Doon Cave, the largest in the world! The well-preserved, charming old town of Hoi An is one of Vietnam’s most well-known with a long and varied history. Nearby is the thriving coastal city of Da Nang, and if you’re looking for a lively beach destination An Bang is one of the best in the country with its strip of unspoilt white sand - the perfect spot to relax and unwind for a few days.
History buffs can learn about the war and visit the site where some of the worst battles took place in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ). Head away from the coastline and cities and visit My Son, once the capital of the Champa kingdom and the site of many temples ravaged by war and time.
