Recently, World of Buzz, a famous Malaysian news site, published an article introducing destinations with rich historical value and fascinating culture of Vietnam.
Accordingly, after the government opened the border, Malaysians were able to travel normally again. And Vietnam is one of the top destinations that World of Buzz suggests to its readers during this year’s summer travel season.
“If you’re looking for inspiration for your next adventures, we recommend choosing destinations in neighboring countries. Not only is it convenient and cost-effective, but most of these cities also have rich history and fascinating cultures that are fun to explore,” said World of Buzz.
Here are four destinations that the famous news site suggests visitors should not miss when coming to Vietnam
