    Great list! Although, I would add Ninh Binh and Sapa, completely remote and amazing natural landscapes and genuine local immersion. A little bit hard to reach but the trip is definitely worth it.

    • Unfortunately, I did not have time to visit those two places so I cannot speak of them. Regardless, they are wonderful places as seen in pictures in the internet and word of mouth from fellow bloggers. Perhaps, one day, I will have a chance to visit Ninh Binh and Sapa. 🙂
