Hai Van Pass, Vietnam

(4.3/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Traverse Hai Van Pass, a 21 km (13 mi) long scenic route boasting vistas over lush misty hills, green valleys, and beach lagoons, some of which you might recognize from the Top Gear series. Along the way, see the small fishing village of Lang Co, a former leper colony and now a developed tourist destination. Stop to check out the old military bunkers, where you can also refresh with snacks, drinks, and exotic fruits. Don’t be surprised to see newly married couples climbing the ruins--couples often come to celebrate with photos overlooking the scene of foaming waves and sandy beaches.
