Two Vietnam resorts rank among world’s best
U.S. luxury and lifestyle travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler has published a list of the top 50 resorts, and it features two from Vietnam.
At number 15 is one of the country’s top resorts, the InterContinential Danang Sun Peninsula, in the central city of Da Nang.
The magazine wrote: "Though just 30 minutes from the Danang airport, InterContinental’s flagship Vietnam property feels much farther away from the ‘real world.’
"Scattered from the lush hills of the Son Tra Peninsula nature reserve down to the sandy shores of the East Sea, the resort—which opened in 2012—has become one of the top picks in the country for relaxing getaways."
The tariff here ranges from $400 to $3,000 for a night.

Phu Quoc is Vietnam's largest island in the southern province of Kien Giang.
