Da Lat To Be Most Crowded Tourist Hotspot During The Next Holiday

The Central Highlands town of Da Lat is expected to become the most popular tourist hotspot during the upcoming Reunification Day (April 30) and Labor Day (May 1) holidays, travel agency Booking.com says.

This year, Vietnamese will enjoy a five-day break as the Hung Kings anniversary celebration falls on April 29, which is a Saturday, and people are entitled to take two extra days off the following week to compensate for that and the Reunification Day on Sunday.

Though Da Lat is famous for its French colonial heritage and year-round cool climate in a tropical country, it is not very popular with foreign visitors due to limited transport and tourism services.

Da Nang beach city in central Vietnam ranked second, followed by beach resort towns Nha Trang and Vung Tau.

The rest of the list included Phu Quoc, Hue, Hoi An, Ha Long, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, based on an analysis of check-in dates between April 28 and May 7.

Where To Go On Vietnam’s Reunification Day To Avoid Crowds?

Vietnam’s Reunification Day, also known as Liberation Day, is a significant holiday in the country, and many popular tourist destinations are expected to be crowded. However, there are still some hidden gems to explore without worrying about the crowds.

There are plenty of hidden gems to explore, such as Cat Ba Island with its stunning beaches and adventure activities, or Mui Ne, known for its sandy beaches and water sports. And if you want to venture even further off the beaten path, consider Hue with its Imperial City and traditional music and dance performances, or the Mekong Delta for a peaceful boat ride along the river and local culinary delights.

These destinations offer a unique perspective on Vietnam and allow you to enjoy the country without the usual tourist crowds.
