Hoi An is a shopping mecca, with tailor shops lining the
narrow streets from Tran Hang Dao Street to Le Loi, and everywhere in
between. Some people brought photos and designs of clothes to be made, since
custom-made clothing is so inexpensive and can be ready within 24 hours or
The city showcases not only clothing shops but also an array of art
galleries, cafés, and high-quality restaurants. Ly Café 22, run by
chef/owner Miss Ly, serves unforgettable fried rice, which has lingered on
my taste buds since.
Also located in Vietnam's south is the Cat Tien National
Park, forming 720 km² of tropical rain forests. While the park's fauna may
be under threat, it is impressive nonetheless. Large animals such as the
Javan rhino, Asian elephant, bear species and buffalos can be spotted on
Vietnam holidays here. And the smaller animals are here in impressive
numbers too, with species of gibbon, macaques, deer and shrews all
habituating within the park. Birds too, are remarkable in their numbers,
with beautiful species such as white-winged ducks, Siamese firebacks, great
hornbills and black eagles all residing there.
If you want to go boat riding, then you should visit Ho
Xuan Huong, which is also called Xuan Huong Lake. This is located in Dalat
and is a favorite among tourists who want to get some peace and quite. This
is also a favorite spot of honeymooners as they stroll hand in hand along
the banks of the lake.
