Let’s face it – sometimes we have to spoil ourselves to something extra, and what better way than to check in to a luxury hotel, where you can also get pampered? Vietnam is the perfect way to do it as well since the prices here are more affordable than in Europe for example, and there’s a great variety of boutique and luxury hotels in Vietnam. Whether you are traveling in the north, mid or south Vietnam, you’ll definitely encounter some incredible resorts.
Just remember to apply for a Vietnam visa before you enter the country. There are two online options: Visa on Arrival and the E-Visa. However, the latter is only available for certain countries. Acquiring a visa online is by far the most popular option amongst travelers, because of how easy, quick and affordable it is. But there’s also the option of going to the Vietnamese Embassy or Consulate and get a visa there.
So, let us take a look at the best boutique and luxury hotels in Vietnam, where they are located and why they are some of the best in the country.
