Central provinces among places to visit post-pandemic: US TV channel
The central provinces of Vietnam have been included on a list of seven lesser-known destinations in the world to consider visiting post-pandemic, according to the American news channel CNBC.
Hoi An in central Vietnam.
With three UNESCO heritage sites including historic Hoi An, former imperial capital Hue in Thua Thien Hue Province and My Son Sanctuary in Quang Nam Province, central Vietnam has long been famous on the country's tourism map.
In addition, Quy Nhon Town, blessed with a 42-kilometre coastline, called the "Maldives of Vietnam", is now a rising star on central Vietnam's tourism map.
Son Doong Cave in central Quang Binh Province is estimated to be between 400 and 450 million years old, but only "discovered" in 2009. The cave, with a total length of nine kilometres, was declared the world’s largest and opened to tourists in 2013, four years after members of the British Cave Research Association finished their exploration.
The TV channel also included other destinations worth visiting post-pandemic such as Normandy in France, Kagawa in Japan, and Dandenongs in Australia.
My Son Sanctuary is a large complex featuring religious relics, including temples, shrines, and towers.
One of the entertainment services travelers enjoy in Hoi An is riding buffalos and learning to farm. The special tours allow local farmers to earn big money.
