According to the article, entitled "Trans-Vietnam journey from North to South",  Vietnam is fascinated by its long coastline, rocky cliffs, terraced fields, and bustling cities in contrast to idyllic villages.
Eleven special tourist attractions have been selected to introduce for travelers before planning a post-COVID-19 trip, which are located in the unspoiled mountain areas in the North to the Mekong Delta region with tropical weather and high humidity in the South.
Topping the list is Sapa, a peaceful "oasis" with a cool climate in the northern mountain province of Lao Cai. It's followed by Ha Giang with narrow, steep and winding pass roads and surrounded by mountains, gorges, and stretching valleys below.
Other sites named in the list are UNESCO-recognised Ha Long Bay in northern Quang Ninh province, Cat Ba island in northern Hai Phong city with turquoise-colored sea water, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park in central Quang Binh province with a cave system stretching for more than 350 km.
The ancient capital of Hue is described to have a dreamlike beauty, nestled by the Perfume River. UNESCO-recognised Hoi An ancient town, which used to be one of the most important ports in Southeast Asia, still retains its characteristics despite the devastation of the war.
Also high in the article are Da Lat city in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, Ho Chi Minh City, one of the most dynamic cities in Asia, and the Mekong Delta, Vietnam's rice and fruit granaries and famous for Cai Rang floating market and Can Tho, the largest city in the region.
The article also provided information on the environment and climate, and travel tips for those who plan to visit Vietnam at any time of the year.
