The famous travel site Thetravel.com has just listed Ha Long Bay in the northern province of Quang Ninh and Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City among the top ten must-visit epic and adventurous places in Southeast Asia.

Ha Long Bay

According to The Travel, Southeast Asia is a most attractive travel destination of the world for its beautiful beaches, delicious food and wonderful experiences, from hiking through rainforests to snorkelling in the world’s most spectacular coastal areas.

This prestigious travel site has shown a list of places that tourists should visit, in which Ha Long Bay and Cu Chi Tunnels of Vietnam are ranked at 9th and 8th, respectively.

Ha Long Bay, which is situated in Northeast Vietnam, is regarded as one of the world's geographical beauties due to its green seas scattered with hundreds of limestone islets, each capped with its distinct tropical jungle, the magazine said. 

The wonder possesses outstanding aesthetic, geological and geomorphological values which have been recognized by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage several times.

Cu Chi Tunnels

Meanwhile, the Cu Chi Tunnel system, situated 60 km beyond Ho Chi Minh City, is a vast network of subterranean tunnels that stretches towards the Cambodian frontier. The tunnels served as a way of communication among settlements. Furthermore, the tunnels are easily reachable from HCM City, with a one-and-a-half-hour trip./.
