Itinerary For A Perfect Christmas Season in Northern Vietnam

Unlike the European countries, Christmas in Vietnam is not synonymous with white snow scenery and the taste of turkey in the air, it is just one day long.  And whether you are drawn by the grandeur of Vietnamese countryside in the warm Christmas Eve or fascinated by the legendary long white sandy beaches and excellent-standard kayaking conditions, Northern Vietnam can deliver it all.

Need a winter break in Vietnam? Or your travel bug just cannot wait until summertime, then the best luxury tour companies will advise you to plan a Christmas vacation in Northern Vietnam.

Hanoi Night Market with its hustle and bustle is among the oldest, biggest, and most fascinating of its kind in Northern Vietnam. It is even much greater and more colorful in this festive period.

The night market taking place in one of the prettiest and most crowded areas of Vietnamese capital city gathers nearly 4,000 stalls full of goods of all kinds from a wide range of mouthwatering Vietnamese style street food and fresh drinks to clothes and traditional toys. Just forget everything and soak up the genuine Christmas spirit not only in the crowded night market itself but also in a labyrinth of narrow streets lined with several-century-old tube houses in Hanoi Old Quarter!

Note: Hanoi Night Market is only open from 6.00.P.M. to 11.00.P.M. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Day 2: Ninh Binh Province – A Land Of Tranquility and Natural Impressiveness

Christmas excitements do not have to mean joyfully battling through market crowds or trawling through the bustle and hustle of the city center for fun. Why don’t you combine your Vietnam luxury travel with a journey to the Vietnamese countryside?

Though not considered as the most highly rated place, Ninh Binh Province is still on the podium of the best Christmas getaways in Northern Vietnam. And those celebrating the most festive time of a year in this historical and poetic land will have a hard time finding words to describe how beautiful it is. Mystical? Lyrical? Or magical?

No matter how cold, rainy, dry, or dark winter in Northern Vietnam gets, the Gifts of Nature Mother around the city such as Van Long Wetland Nature Reserve and these temples worshiping the honorable Vietnamese king will certainly be successful in cheering up all travelers during the large gatherings in the city’s favorite tourist area.
