Travelling from Vietnam

Travel From Vietnam

So you’ve decided to do a life-changing internship in Vietnam. But whilst you are in Vietnam why not take some time to travel elsewhere in South East Asia!

Vietnam borders 3 countries; Cambodia, Laos and China. All of which are easily accessible by either plane or train from Vietnam!

Cambodia

Famed for it beautiful temples and stunning natural beauty this is somewhere you’ll definitely want to visit if you plan on travelling.

Temples to see in Cambodia include the world famous Angkor Wat. This temple dates back to the 10th century and is surrounded by a vast moat. There are a large number of temples in Cambodia each unique to the next.

Furthermore, in the South, there are some beautiful as yet untouched islands, unlike the mass tourist destinations of Thailand. Expect endless rolling sandy beaches, picturesque fishing villages and bright blue oceans.

Laos

The natural beauty and undisrupted nature of Laos make it a fantastic destination for travellers. Whilst Laos is completely landlocked this doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any beauty. Nature lovers can tour the country taking in the wildlife including gibbons and elephants.

Laos

The extensive network of rivers and caves in Laos make for great exploring. It’s a more off the beaten track destination than other locations in the region. Laos is the perfect destination for the traveller within!

China

Whilst China might not be the go-to location for travellers in South East Asia there is so much to see and do in the country of over 1 billion people.  From the deserts and grasslands in the north and west to the bustling cities on the east coast.

China is full of culture and beautiful nature. A short trip from Vietnam can get you to Hong Kong or the beautiful tropical island of Hainan. China is definitely a country to consider when you are thinking of travelling around Asia.
