The pandemic COVID-19 leaves negative effects and feelings for all of us, and that’s totally normal. What we need is a vacation to get rid of every burden, pressure and sadness. In other words, we strongly recommend a holiday focusing on stress release in Vietnam.

While the rest of the World is still fighting the fierce battle with the novel coronavirus, the last community-infected case of Vietnam was in April 2020. The country has shifted back to normal mode for nearly 4 months. Thanks to Vietnam’s timing measures and preventions, the outbreak of COVID-19 was put to an end. If you are looking for a safe destination after the pandemic, a stress release vacation in Vietnam will do.

Not to mention, there are a lot of Vietnam travel deals at the moment. So a trip in Vietnam is not only mentally stress release but also financially stress release.

Let’s find out 5 amazing destinations for stress release in Vietnam!

1. Halong Bay – Stress release in Vietnam’s bay

It will be a shame if you did not mention Halong Bay in Vietnam’s bucket list. Listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, this bay stands out because of its pristine, natural and undeniable beauty. Halong Bay can be explored on an overnight boat in the sea, floating around the limestone islets to let travelers truly immerse in nature.

Halong Bay will be an ideal holiday for stress release in Vietnam thanks to its surreal scenery, diverse biodiversity and convenient location. If you prefer a quiet stress release vacation in Vietnam, it is recommended to stay in Cat Ba Island which is very near Halong Bay. The island is less touristy but interesting to visit.

You can choose to stay in a homestay in the surrounding villages instead of booking a luxurious hotel in the town center.

While Ninh Binh has 2 separate seasons including dry and rainy seasons, both seasons have unique beauty for travelers to visit all year round. The dry season has cooler weather with less rainfall but the rainy season is when rice fields are the most impressive with its greenery.

There are a lot of activities to enjoy in Ninh Binh. A boat ride around Trang An Grottoes, a visit to Hoa Lu Temple and a hike to Hang Mua Temple will wipe out your boredom, tiredness and pressure. Cuc Phuong National Park and its biodiversity will also be a wonderful destination for your stress release in Vietnam.
