1. Da Lat – The city of Eternal Spring
There is a reason why this beautiful city is very well-known with all the lovely-dovey couples and honeymooners. Being the capital city of Lam Dong province, Da Lat is called “The city of Eternal Spring” with lovely French villas, the fresh air, green valley and beautiful pine forests.

Another suggested highlight is to visit the beautiful French villas and the replica of the Eiffel Tower which have given Dalat the name of “Le Petit Paris” (A Little Paris)
2. Nha Trang – The pearl of the Far East of Vietnam
If you are searching for a place where you can both enjoy the peaceful sound of the sea and still be able to attend all the busy celebrations, events, countdown show and the fireworks party then Nha Trang is definitely a place for you.
Not only being famous for having the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam, during Tet, Nha Trang is literately filled with flowers from all the three regions of the country: North, Central and South so you will get to see many different kinds of flowers on Ly Thanh Tong Street, the Sports Center, Xom Moi Market, Dam Market and Le Hong Phong Street as well as peach branches and apricot trees. One of the most attracted places to visit here on Lunar New Year’s Eve would be the Holy Mother Tower where the fireflies gather and fly around the tower to warmly welcome the new year.
