Imagine misty green mountains swathed in rice terraces, serene coastlines of powdery white sand and thrilling cities dripping in culture and neon lights—that’s just a hint of what you get from the diverse places to visit in Vietnam. Whether you want to buy a bespoke suit from a custom tailor in Hoi An, race around Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh on a motorbike or explore underwater wrecks, you’ll need to know where to go in Vietnam for the best hotels.
That’s where we come in. Ranging from colonial-style accommodation to opulent remote resorts, Vietnam hotels are as rich and varied as the country’s history. You can stay in a bungalow in a secluded bay near Nha Trang on the country’s 3,000-kilometer coastline, or rub shoulders with the cool crowd at a rooftop bar overlooking the Saigon skyline. Dig into the nuances of the local cuisine at your hotel’s restaurant or nearby eateries, so by the end of your trip, you’ll know your phở bo from your bún chả.
