Hi everybody, hope you are having an amazing day. You might wonder: “Why travel is important? Why travel is good for you?” I personally would say that travel is the best form of education, it’s like a therapy, travel is my theraphy (you don’t exactly have to take a flight to travel, you can explore your own city). That’s why in this post I will write about “Vietnam”, while I was doing some research I found out the most of Vietnam posts or news are negative, that’s why in this post I will share the beautiful things and positive things in Vietnam.

Hang Sơn Đoòng – Sơn Đoòng cave, in Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, Bố Trạch District, Quảng Bình Province, Vietnam, is one of the world’s largest natural caves. Located near the Laos–Vietnam border, Hang Sơn Đoòng has an internal, fast-flowing subterranean river and the largest cross-section of any cave, worldwide, as of 2009, believed to be twice that of the next largest passage. It is the largest known cave passage in the world by volume. Its name, Hang Sơn Đoòng, is variously translated from Vietnamese as ‘cave of the mountain river’ or ‘cave of mountains behind Đoòng [village]’. As a solutional cave, it was formed in soluble limestone and is believed to be between 2 and 5 million years old.

The Hải Vân Pass – is an approximately 21 km long mountain pass on National Route 1A in Vietnam. It traverses a spur of the larger Annamite Range that juts into the East Sea of Viet Nam, on the border of Đà Nẵng and Thừa Thiên–Huế Province, near Bạch Mã National Park. Its name refers to the mists that rise from the sea, reducing visibility. Historically, the pass was a physical division between the kingdoms of Champa and Đại Việt. It is nowadays also used as a signifier of the climates of northern Vietnam vs southern areas, where northern regions receives 4 seasons whilst southern areas receives just 2 seasons. The twisting road on the pass has long been a challenge for drivers traveling between the cities of Huế and Đà Nẵng. Since the completion of Hải Vân Tunnel, traffic flow and safety have improved. The pass has been the scene of at least two of Vietnam’s most serious rail accidents, and at least one air crash.

In conclusion, Vietnam is a beautiful country that offers more than what we expect. There’s something for every one.
