Top New Year’s Getaway Destinations From Ho Chi Minh City

As the curtain falls on another year, and the world gears up to welcome 2024, tourists in Ho Chi Minh City are spoilt for choice with an array of charming southern destinations for a quick New Year’s getaway. Delighting in the allure of nature or basking in the lap of luxury, there’s a place for every preference and budget, as suggested by local tour guide and blogger, Chon Thanh.

La Ngau: A Nod to Naturé

La Ngau, a tranquil haven situated 192 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City, serves as an idyllic backdrop for both traditional camping and luxurious ‘glamping’. Here, one can disconnect from the world or stay connected with full services, including meals and Wi-Fi, depending on their preference. The cost of this wilderness experience ranges from VND1 million to VND2 million (US $41 to $82). However, due to the popularity of scenic spots, Thanh recommends booking in advance.

Can Gio District: An Ecotourism Enclave

At a stone’s throw away from the city center, the Can Gio District emerges as a seaside retreat, only 40 kilometers southeast of Ho Chi Minh City. This district offers a spectrum of accommodations, from homely stays to opulent resorts, priced between VND1 million to VND3 million (US $41 to $123). For those seeking more than relaxation, Can Gio is dotted with tourist hotspots like the Vam Sat ecological tourist area and bustling seafood markets.

Ta Dung National Park: Immersion in Cultural Richness

For the culturally curious, Ta Dung National Park, located 250 kilometers from the city, provides a window into the local ethnic cultures nestled amidst stunning natural beauty. Similar to Can Gio, the costs for camping and exploration here fall within the same range.

While Ho Chi Minh City finds itself on Agoda’s list of worldwide locations for an incredible New Year’s Eve celebration, Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi, has decided to abstain from fireworks displays to welcome the new year, focusing instead on a countdown event at Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square. However, fireworks will set the sky ablaze over 31 locations citywide to celebrate the 2024 Lunar New Year.

2024 also seems promising for the coastal city of Da Nang, as it braces for an influx of visitors during the New Year holiday break. The city is all set to entertain residents and tourists alike with a medley of activities including art programs, music festivals, street music, and night-time exploration of Da Nang.
