Best holiday destination


Am considering booking a holiday to Veitnam next January and am doing a little research - Was wondering whether anyone could give some advice on nice resorts out there. Somewhere that has lovely beaches and a vibrant town, but somewhere that is local to some touristy attractions?

Only want to stay in one place, and not travel up and down the country etc

thank you!

At that time of year you will be limited to the south as central and north will not be warm enough. Have a look at Nha Trang, Mui Ne and Phu Quoc Island. Personally if its just a one stop trip I would look at other countries for January. Hoi An would probably be most ideal but not in January.

I'm with JoLeicester on that one, and not just because you intend visiting in January. When it comes to a stay-put beach holiday, Vietnam is not the greatest of choices because it's a heck of a long way from the UK and there are closer places where the infrastructure for such holidays is far better developed.

Nha Trang comes closest to tick all the boxes you mention. But little choice that time of year.
