At first glance, tourists will be surprised by the transportation there, with car horns and chaotic motorbikes. However, that is not its top-rated traveling spot, the Tuol Sleng Museum is. Most visitors vote this place as a worthy experience because it displays many proofs that provoke the miserable days when Cambodia strives against the Khmer Rouge.


Vientiane is the charming cultural city of Laos. Officially, this place is the country’s capital city, where the ancient past and modern times collapse.

It used to be a former French post-trading center. Therefore, Vientiane is under the strong influence of French architectural art. Most of the buildings in the city today are made during the French colonial period.

Walking around this charming town, tourists can find many structures that influence the Laotian signature decorative art such as the Patuxai – Laotian version of Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Luang Prabang

Laos is the hidden gem of the Indochina region. The country still stands in its shadow from its glorious old days, situated next to the enormous China and Vietnam. However, that doesn’t mean that traveling to Laos is boring. Instead, if you are looking for Laos’ serene heart, Luang Prabang is a go-to place.

The spring is slowly replaced by winter. Waking up in the morning, you can feel the wind flowing through hairs like winter has come. The temperature will gradually rise to a peak at 12.00 p.m, then, of a sudden, the degree drops. It will slowly turn cooler and cooler till midnight comes.

With picturesque scenery, cool climate, and blooming flowers, Da Lat is a great place for couples to enjoy the romance that is in the air.

Mui Ne

Mui Ne is another famous traveling spot in central Vietnam. In the past, this is just a small, coastal town with a few residents. However, after a solar eclipse in 1995, the city has risen to stardom and remains on the top trending travel destination.

What people love about Mui Ne is its “yellow sand portable hill.” Each year, because of the wind, the hill moves to another spot and changes the color. In some years, it is yellow, but other times, it is orange.

During special weather time, the sand can change into red, either. Climbing up the wobbling sand, sliding along the hill while seeing the sunset are all experiences that Mui Ne gives you when you visit it.

Safety guidelines

Even though Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos are relatively safeguarded countries with high Coronavirus recovery rate, you should still educate yourself with safety tips because this Virus is unpredictable. Below is some helpful advice for you:

  • Always wear masks in public: It’s a must to wear masks in public in some cities like Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), so having a mask is not only to follow the rule but also to protect yourself.
  • Wash your hands in hand sanitizer immediately after going outside.
  • Avoid touching your face with bare hands: Your hands are literally the dirtiest place on the body, so touching your eyes or mouth is the fastest way to transmit Coronavirus directly into your body.
  • Open or close the hotel room’s door by your wrist, not by bare hand to avoid direct touching.
  • Remain 2 meters minimum from others: You can’t control the sneezing or any means of body fluids transmission, so the best way to prevent virus exposure is to stay away from strangers as far as possible.
