4 Reasons To Get Married in Vietnam

Vietnam is full of natural beauty, and I’m not just talking about the women. The often-photographed green rice fields and one of the world’s most historical landmarks can be found in this country, and many couples have been making wonderful use of Vietnam as a backdrop for their wedding and honeymoon.

The fact that Vietnam, with its breathtaking beaches, lush countryside, rich history and colourful culture, is just a short plane ride away from Singapore, is definitely why couples have chosen to have their wedding photos taken there. While Vietnam has progressed at an impressive pace and become a very cosmopolitan country, it still retains its exoticness and has blossomed with beautiful boutique hotels, spas and villas, making it the perfect destination for a wedding or honeymoon.

Here are just four reasons why Vietnam has become such a great wedding and honeymoon destination.

1. Decades of Romance in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City

Full of history and culture, this city’s charming architecture is blossoming in romance that lures couples down elegant tree-lined streets, a testament to the original city of love – Paris. The Notre Dame Cathedral even rings out atop the secluded side streets, offering a beautiful backdrop for a photo with your loved one. Ho Chi Minh is perfect for cosmopolitan couples looking for a European-influenced destination at their door-step.

2. Higher Love in Da Lat

Da Lat, affectionately know as “Le Petit Paris”, offers couples luxury and sophistication, great for couples seeking an intimate wedding destination or honeymoon. Surrounded by mountains and lakes, this beautiful backdrop is comparable with the beauty of the French Alps. Popular for its year-round milder temperatures, imagine soaking in resplendent scenery whilst exploring the aptly named “Valley of Love”. Here, you can escape the humidity and chaos of the cities.

3. Tropical Paradise in Phú Quốc

Phú Quốc is an idyllic haven which boasts untouched natural beauty and pristine sand beaches. Relatively undiscovered, couples can be forgiven for thinking that they are alone in utmost peace on a romantic desert island. The National Park of Phú Quốc covers much of the island and this protected land is just waiting to be explored. If it’s peace and tranquillity you are after for your honeymoon or a dream beach wedding, then there is no better destination.

4. The Romantic Charms of Hội An

Hoi An Hoi An

The ancient city of Hội An is a 15th century trading port town, known for its beautiful shop houses and traditional hanging lanterns. The architecture of the city reflects the influence of Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, French and British traders. Hội An is one of the country’s wealthiest cities and known as one of the culinary and cultural meccas of Vietnam today. This coupled with its rich culture and architecture makes for a magical spot for a wedding.
