The US National Geographic Traveller magazine has revealed the list of the best destinations for winter trips, including Viet Nam.

While Canadian rivers are freezing into winter skating tracks, Southeast Asia’s longest river, the Mekong, flows merrily along past arching palms and sunny floating houses, it said.

The Mekong connects six countries from China to Viet Nam, is second only to the Amazon in fish biodiversity and is home to rare Irrawaddy dolphins and giant freshwater stingrays. 

Don’t miss Cambodia’s Wat Hanchey, a rosy hilltop pagoda framed in ancient Sanskrit, and Viet Nam’s Cai Be floating market, where villagers sell fresh fruit by the boatful, the magazine said.

Other destinations include Japan, Patagonia, Tanzania, Vienna, Caribbean, Belize, Antarctica, and Baja California.
