A trip to the peaceful Vinh city will be widely different than modern Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. Vinh lends its rustic charm to a slow and tranquil living lifestyle. Vinh Guru has shortlisted some of the most memorable experiences in Vinh:
Search for the best Phở
Not only can you find a hot flavourful bowl of Pho on every road in Vinh but you can also discover how our local Pho recipes differ from that of other regions. Its taste might be a little more salty compared to that in Hanoi since people in the North Central region tend to use more salt and cook the broth for longer time.
Trace history in the Provincial Xo Viet – Nghe Tinh Museum
We would recommend you to spend a few hours at the museum to discover the old history of the city. The museum traces several graphic photographs and military equipment – including a collection of helicopters, tanks and fighter jets.
Hire a motorbike with a professional Vietnamese driver to wander around the city.
You will see a striking difference in the traffic flow between Vinh and other big cities in Vietnam. It is way less crowded, congested and polluted as Vinh is not a densely populated city.
Visit the local market
If you look for local flavor? This is the place to go! There is a a huge market providing fresh items like fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs etc. But there is also a big covered part where you can find houseware, clothes, electronics etc. Go and bargain here for your best deal and for nice pictures. And don’t forget to visit Bot Coffee, the secret of Vinh City.
