"When on a summer's morn I wake,
And open my two eyes,
Out to the clear, born-singing rills
My bird-like spirit flies."

<<William Henry Davies>>

You know what, you look young and free when summer comes, no matter what age you are in. Waking up in the morning when some breeze knocks on the door and, guess what, right as you open the glass window, sunlight hastily floods all into your room. Such abundant source of energy and blissful joy will definitely excite you with an intriguing idea of outdoor enjoyment. Yeah, go out now! Throw yourself into the nature out there.

As you stay in Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City and want to swap places for the summer vacation, here are some destinations for you to visit while the summer is still young. In another article, I mentioned some places near Saigon for a weekend getaway. Now it's time to travel farther and enjoy further more!

Phu Yen - An alluring destination

Phu Yen is a coastal province in Central Viet Nam, bordering on Binh Dinh in the north and Khanh Hoa in the south with its capital of Tuy Hoa City. Visitors can visit Phu Yen by car and train or ship. A 12 hour ride on a night train will lead you to Tuy Hoa in the morning. There are many home-stays around town, where you just pay jack to get a room.

Once you set foot in Phu Yen, go have bánh canh hẹ (a type of noodle in Phu Yen) for breakfast at any street corners. Then rent a motorbike and set off toward Xuan Dai Bay (Vịnh Xuân Đài) in the north. Tu Nham is a sun-drenched sandy beach, where you can stop by and take a bath (bear in mind that there is no place nearby for you to have a fresh water bath then) or take photos. On the go back from Vinh Xuan Bay, you must visit Mang Lang Church, which was built in 19th century in Gothic style. Near there, Ganh Da Dia, similar to Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, is a coastal area of strikingly arranged basalt rocks created from volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.

After hanging out in Ganh Da Dia, you may visit O Loan Swamp (đầm Ô Loan) and Swallow Island (hòn Yến) on the way back to Tuy Hoa City.

Remember to come back early in the evening to eat Ocean Tuna's Eye at Tam's Restaurant on Le Duan Street. Or you must go to try dried chicken rice at Tuyet Nhung's or Thien Huong's on Le Thanh Ton Street. This is a special dish in Tuy Hoa City. Then ride along Bach Dang Street and stop by to have mixed ice-cream at Duy Tan's, before coming back to have a sound sleep then.

At 4 a.m in the early morning, you should set off toward the Easternmost Point (Cực Đông) on Dai Lanh Cape (Mũi Điện or Mũi Đại Lãnh) to welcome the first sunlight of the day. There is a lighthouse nearby, where you can climb up and spread your view over Mon Beach (bãi Môn) and Đại Lãnh Cape. Vung Ro Beach nearby is amazing as well. Don't come back early because Ca Mountain-pass (Đèo Cả) is worth hanging out for a while. Actually Ca Pass was once the national highway until a long tunnel through the mountains was built. Thus it's now safe for tourists to stop here and there and take photos. And before you go back to the salt mines (you know what I mean, right?), don't forget to shop for some bánh ít lá gai - a local special cake as a desert back home.

Solo travel means you will have more time for yourself, so taking selfies or self portraits sounds reasonable to do. And I have taken many of these self photos here and there during the trip to Phu Yen.

Elsewhere to go?

We have traveled really far from Saigon, and you want farther, don't you? Alright, let's get off flying straight to the north Vietnam and I'm going to show you somewhere to hang around.

Ha Noi Capital is, as a matter of fact, the biggest city in Viet Nam, where everyone needs to visit sometime. Ha Noi is in fact not a well-suggested place for a summer getaway because the weather is scorching hot during summer. Anyway, you should roam around the capital as a transit to elsewhere, such as Sapa and Ha Long Bay.

Once you set foot on Ha Noi, the Old Streets (Phố cổ) is a must-see spot.

When you are in Ha Noi, remember to try its special dishes, say, bún chả (a type of noodle with grilled pork cakes), egg coffee, Trang Tien or Thuy Ta ice-cream, etc. around the Old Streets. And you should hang out at the West Lake (Hồ Tây) as well, along with many tourist spots, namely Quoc Tu Giam (the first university of Viet Nam), Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and so on.

Now it's time to go up north!

Within a week-long trip, you may decide to visit Sapa and Ha Long Bay altogether. From Ha Noi, you can book a tour to either place or just grab a bus ticket and go!

Nestled in Hoang Lien Son Mountains, Sapa is a mountainous town of Lao Cai Province in northwestern Vietnam. It has long become a tourist hub thanks to its highly seasonal climate (subtropical climate in the summer and temperate climate during the winter), extreme topography with Fan Si Pan summit (the highest point in Indochina countries) and local diverse ethnical culture. There are plenty of tourist spots where you can visit, including the stoned church, Ham Rong Mountain (Dragon's Jaw Mount), Cat Cat Village, Fan Si Pan Summit (3,143m tall), etc. Visitors often go to Muong Hoa Valley to admire mesmerizing terraced rice fields, or Dong Van Stone Park to learn of ancient stones. Don't forget to try Thắng Cố (stewed horse intestine)!

HA LONG BAY

Located in Quang Ninh Province, Ha Long Bay is the World Natural Heritage Site designated by UNESCO, which is famous for its emerald waters and thousands of towering limestone islands topped by rainforests. You can have a glimpse of the bay via the re-made blockbuster King Kong - Skull Island. Thus it requires no more words to describe such a paradise on earth, right? Just go and enjoy yourself.
