Ever booked a vacation spur of the moment? No time like the present! If you’re looking for some ideas, we’ve compiled a list of three-day trips that don’t require too much advance planning.
During the plum blossom season, have a good time in Moc Chau
Moc Chau (Son La province) is well-known for its food and dairy products, but the province is also blessed with a temperate climate that produces a wide variety of flowers all year. Flowers and plum trees, in particular, bloom from November to March, displaying their unique beauty and making the plateau an appealing destination for tourists, photographers, and nature lovers.
In Dalat, you can camp in the middle of a pine forest
CampArt by #Mother Jen is a good destination if you’re looking for healthy holidays. It’s located about 15 kilometers from the center of Da Lat city, next to Suoi Vang lake in Lac Duong district. In the morning, you will greet the dawn with chilly air, in front of the mist spreading on the surface of Suoi Vang lake, listen to the sound of pine trees and birds chirping while eating breakfast, search for apricots on Angbiang Mountain, or choose to paddle SUP on the lake. Guests staying here only need to bring personal items; the camp provides tents, pillows, warm sleeping bags, and attractive dinners with steak, smoked goose breast, pasta, and so on.
Enjoy Dak Lak, the largest natural freshwater lake in Central Highland
People in Dak Lak frequently refer to the myth of Lak Lake – one of Vietnam’s largest natural freshwater lakes, connected to the Krong Ana river, covering approximately 500 ha and located at an elevation of more than 500 meters above sea level. Lak Tented Camp is located about 40 kilometers from the center of Buon Ma Thuot on 4.8 hectares of land along Lak Lake. The resort is designed with open space in mind, with 15 lake-view ecological tents, 4 lakeside bungalows, a communal tent house, a restaurant, and so on. For guests who enjoy the outdoors, there are three outdoor wooden decks by the lake. The resort benefits from being on a peninsula, with an 8-kilometer connection to the main road. Trekking, running, and cycling on this road through the rolling mountains near Lak Lake is truly unforgettable. One of the most romantic experiences in Lak Lake is kayaking to watch the sunrise and sunset.
Discover high karst plateau, steep hills, winding roads and ethnic diversity in Ha Giang
For a longer trip, choose Hà Giang, a border province and official Frontier Area, located in the country’s far northernmost region. To visit this province is to travel back in time and see some of Vietnam’s most rugged and grand landscapes, as well as a plethora of minority villages. The pink color of peach blossoms and the yellow color of canola flowers fill the streets and villages at this time of year. Visitors can drive on Mã Pí Lèng Pass, the jewel in Hà Giang crown, get lost in the hills as Qun B is the gateway to the lofty limestone peaks and rock-strewn fields of Geopark, or hike through the mountains. Visit Sà Phìn H’Mông Palace which was built during the French occupation in 1902, or Lũng Cú where a massive Vietnamese flag proudly flies at the border. During their spring trip to Ha Giang, tourists can choose from a variety of homestays, particularly in Dong Van and Meo Vac.
