Things to do for 2 weeks in Southern Vietnam

I will have 2 weeks in Vietnam in June. I already visited some places in the Northern Vietnam such as Hanoi, Halong, Ninh Binh, Mai Chau and Sapa. But I have little understanding of the Southern Vietnam. So any suggestion about places to visit or things to do in the South? Thanks in advance.

At this time, the weather is quite hot so you can consider relaxing on some beaches like Mui NePhu Quoc, and Con Dao. In addition, it's a good ideal to visit floating markets in Mekong Delta.

During 2 weeks, you can explore a lot of places in the South. From Hanoi, you can catch a flight of Vietjet or Vietnam Airline or rent a tour offered by vacation-in-vietnam to being taken to Ho Chi Minh City. There are quite a few historical sites in HMC such as Hien Luong (reunification monument), War Remnants MuseumNotre Dame CathedralSaigon Opera House, or go shopping at Bến Thành Market. In addition, you should spend time visiting some beaches, for example, Vung TauMui Ne or Phu Quoc.

Hello,

About Sa Pả you can  hike and enjoy nature. The most prominent attraction in the area around Sapa is Fansipan, which is the highest mountain in Vietnam. It's only 19km from town. This may seem like a short distance, but the trek is not easy; the rough terrain and unpredictable weather present some difficulties. Tourists who are fit and have mountain climbing experience will enjoy this attraction the most, as the peak is accessible all year round. Technical climbing skills are not necessary, but endurance is a must.

Fan Si Pan can be found in Hoang Lien National Park, which is an attraction in itself. The park covers a picturesque mountain landscape and several forests, and serves as the habitat for a diverse set of animals. Some species can only be found in northwest Vietnam and are highly endangered. Nature lovers will truly appreciate this park.

Other attractions that are part of the Hoang Lien National Park include the Cat Cat Village and the Ta Phin Village and cave.

In Sapa town, there's a small museum and a modest cathedral. We highly recommend taking a stroll up and down the steep streets of this tiny mountain town. You may be hassled by tribal ladies to buy their wares, but it's fun to talk to them.

Moving from Ho Chi Minh CityCái Răng, and Cái Bè District be floating markets in the Southwest region should be considered. Besides, Cồn Dầu 1 and Phu Quoc are not too touristy so they are stunning despite offering fewer services than other places.
