The magazine described Central Vietnam as a melody of unique terrain, grand, sandy beaches, delectable islets quirkily creating a mini archipelago, and majestic mountains hiding many unfathomable wonders.

Quang Binh, dubbed Vietnam’s cave kingdom, is a rising star on the local tourism map and has been made various efforts to gain global recognition, according to the magazine.

It is home to UNESCO heritage site Phong Nha-Ke Bang and the world’s largest cave Son Doong.

Meanwhile, My Son Sanctuary in Quang Nam province is a must-visit destination on a tour of central Vietnam, the magazine stated.

The former imperial capital of Hue should not be skipped, it said. “Hue, once witness to the glories and collapse of Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945), is lined with dazzling pagodas in sculptured splendor, complete with palaces, shrines, citadel, and statues of warriors and horses guarding the secrets of ancient tombs.”

It also advises travelers to explore Da Nang, Vietnam’s third largest city, famous for the annual international fireworks festival./.
