30 of Vietnam’s most beautiful places

Thanks in part to its serpentine shape and lengthy coastline, (CNN) – Vietnam is home to wildly diverse landscapes. As you travel around the Southeast Asian country, you’ll be surrounded by photogenic scenery — from lush rice terraces in northern Sapa to the white sandy beaches of Phu Quoc.

The mighty Mekong adds to the diverse scenery, rushing through the southern lowlands and branching off into tiny canals that fuel agriculture in rural communities.

That’s not to mention the various national parks, floating markets, scenic mountain roads, farming villages, cemeteries, ancient volcanic geological formations and the world’s largest cave system.

CNN has curated 30 of their favorite corners here.

It’s by no means the final word, but it should take you on a travel adventure through beautiful Vietnam.
