Best Beaches To Relax On A Gap Year In Vietnam By Claire Ryman
Tau Featured Hotels
A five hour bus ride from
Ho Chi Minh City, Mui Ne's lovely stretch of beach is a hot favourite for
both tourists and expats looking to make the break from Vietnam's largest
|Home to a great number of
cheap hostels all jostling for competition among the gap year throngs,
Mui Ne also has other attractions like the desert-like sand dunes of Doi
Cat and a charming series of small fishing villages a little further up
Only a half hours hydrofoil
trip from the centre of Ho Chi Minh City, Vung Tau
is where the Vietnamese flock each weekend to get some respite from another
busy week ahead. Although not as quiet as Mui Ne or Nha Trang, Vung Tau
is a much larger beach town and has plenty of good restaurants and bars
to sample. Restaurant Good Morning Vietnam is particularly popular among
gap year travellers for its pizza.
The long coastline running
the middle of Vietnam is perhaps the most beautiful part of the country
and home to the busy coastal town of Nha Trang.
Famed for its many scuba
schools and snorkelling tours, Nha Trang is close to many small islands
that boats head out to for divers to enjoy coral reefs scattered nearby.
Asides from its stunning stretch of beach, the town also boasts busy nightlife
with bars like Guava, Red Apple and Why Not running late into the night.
Just off the bottom of Vietnam,
near the part of the country that borders Cambodia, is the island of Phu
|Largely unheard of as a
gap year destination, the island is made up of untouched, pristine beaches
making it a possible to have a spot all of your own. What's more is that
hiring a boat out to snorkel amid the coral reefs is just as simple as
heading to the port town of An Thoi at the foot of the island.
This UNESCO heritage centre
isn't usually famed for its beaches, with travellers favouring its silk
and tailoring outlets instead, but that isn't to say Hoi An's options aren't
just as good as others.
An Bahn and Cua Dai beaches
are short bicycle trips out of the centre of Hoi An and are close to several
fun bars and cafes. Famous among backpackers for its great parties, Hoi
An Beach Club on Cua Dai is just one of those.
