In addition to classic sun-and-sand activities, things to do in Vietnam include cultural sightseeing and off-road trips to the scenic countryside. Vietnam's coastline is dotted with fine white-sand beaches like An Bang Beach and top surfing and diving spots. You can go kayaking, explore caves, visit a fishing village, or spend the night in an island bungalow at the World Heritage-listed Halong Bay. Busy urban centers boast colonial-era neighborhoods, open-air markets, national museums, war memorials, and modern restaurants. The downtown hub of Hanoi, Old Quarter teems with cafes, bars, temples, shops, teahouses, and stalls selling French and Vietnamese food. War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City reminds visitors about the events from the Vietnam War.
