Trip Type:
City break Events / festivals Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Do the canyoning tour and check out the Crazy House!

Liked: It is a charming city. A good mix of city life and outdoorsy activities. It is a beautiful place with a ton to do and see during the day. The Crazy House is worth going to and the canyoning trip was amazing! It was nice to get a little cold weather as a break from sweaty Saigon. There are also tandem bicycles everywhere and cute little Cinderella-like horse drawn carriages. Gives the town a very playful and picturesque feel.

Disliked: We were here during some national holidays so it was a bit busy and it was hard to get taxis. I imagine this is not so much of a problem during the regular weeks.
