5. The beaches in Vietnam are great! Seriously, if you head to Da Nang or Nha Trang, you are in for something special. The beaches are beautifully white, and the sea is crystal clear. It is safe to swim in most areas too. If you are planning a bit of a romantic getaway, you will be pleased to know that there are a number of top quality resorts along the coast with their own private beach, they are pretty cheap to stay at too!
