!!World’s Best Golf Destination 2019!!

Why organize a golf vacation in Vietnam? Because it is a place where travelers leave the heart, it is a country of a thousand facets, incredibly beautiful from a landscape point of view where you can find paradisiacal beaches, big cities, green rice fields, mountains to climb. It is also a land where a hospitable population lives, the climate is always favorable and you can experience many different and exciting experiences in a single trip.

I want to list some valid reasons for deciding to organize a golf vacation in Vietnam.

  • To get to know a friendly people.

Vietnam is the ideal destination for travelers who want to visit unknown countries by coming into contact with the local population. The Vietnamese are very hospitable, you can also meet tribes and minorities anchored in ancient traditions that will have no problem involving you in their lives. You can visit Vietnam in a group or even alone, man or woman that you are, without running any danger, tourists are welcome and almost all speak English.

  • To admire breathtaking landscapes

Vietnam is a real jewel where there are several places that have become part of the UNESCO world heritage: the Ha Long Bay, the Old Quarter of Hoi An, the Phong Nha Ke Bang and Cham Islands caves. Then there are all those places that are not part of the Unesco heritage (or not yet) that deserve to be visited. Hanoi, the capital, is a charming city, crossed by the Red River. In the city center is the Lake of the Restored Sword which according to legend was used by the emperor to fight the Ming dynasty. There are many attractions of the city such as the Temple of the Jade Mountain, and that of Literature, the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh, the one-pillar Pagoda and Thang Long, an imperial citadel also this part of the UNESCO heritage. Nha Trang is another unmissable destination if you love the sea and want to spend a holiday relaxing on a white beach in a fabulous hotel.

  • To experience many different experiences, all together

You can enjoy the wonders of Vietnam by going to a mountainous area in the north of Sapa, unique because the rivers during the rainy season change their flow creating cascades among the vegetation, or surfing by going to one of the many white sand beaches (in Vietnam there are about 3 thousand kilometers of coastline): everyone can visit Vietnam as they wish and live the experience they want.

  • To taste Vietnamese food

Dishes in Vietnam vary with the seasons and places and are very tasty. The Pho is a traditional dish of rice noodles in beef or chicken broth that is enriched with spices, herbs or bean sprouts. Fresh jellyfish salad is another dish to try, especially when accompanied with Banh Trang, a kind of crunchy sesame puff pastry bread. Absolutely to try is also the Vietnamese coffee, which is prepared with a special coffee maker that slides the liquid directly into the cup.

  • To participate in traditional festivals.

Many Vietnamese holidays are unknown to us in the West and are really interesting to know. If you want to visit Vietnam between January and February you can attend the Tet holiday, when families celebrate their love for their ancestors. In the countryside it is used to prepare the traditional Chung rice trout by night and keep up all night. On September 2, instead, parades are held in numerous locations for the Republic party and red flags are raised in all streets.

GOLF COURSES IN VIETNAM

The moment you decide to organize a golf vacation in Vietnam, don’t forget that the country is very large. There are long distances between North and South. The most important golf courses are in the North, in the Center and in the South.

It all depends on how many days you want to spend on your golf vacation. If you have a week, you should dedicate it to just one area, for example in the South. If you have 15 days, you can cover the whole country. Remember that it is essential to reserve days dedicated to your extra golf free time, the wonders to experience first hand are truly unique and incredible.

Some tips on golf courses:

  • To book the Tee Time, it is best to send an email to the secretary of the Golf Club you have chosen, asking for availability, obviously indicating the day and an indicative time. You can find the e-mail address by opening the Golf Club website from “Open website” and then searching for “contacts” or some Golf Clubs have the form to fill out to get the Tee Time. I think it’s better to send an email to the Secretariat.
