HCMC, Da Nang, Hanoi, Da Lat and Nha Trang are the most-searched-for destinations in November by Vietnamese tourists, according to Booking.com.

"As Vietnam gradually restarts domestic travel after months of lockdown, Vietnamese travelers have also started researching local destinations they want to travel to in the near future," the U.S.-based travel agency stated.

"Ho Chi Minh City is full of quirky and charming markets that best represent the city’s energetic atmosphere," it noted.

Tourists were recommended to visit Ba Chieu Market, a flea market and second-hand paradise for anyone seeking to buy incredible pre-loved goods.

Built in 1942, Ba Chieu Market underwent restoration work in 1987. The 8,000-square-meter market is divided into eight sections and is home to 800 businesses at the heart of Binh Thanh District.

Apart from iconic destinations in Da Nang like My Khe beach, Ba Na Hills or Marble Mountain, 29 March Park is not to be missed, Booking.com noted.

Located on Dien Bien Phu Street in Thanh Khe District, the "green lung" of the city is loved by locals for its fresh air and poetic scenery. The park features a variety of entertainment and amusement activities like dancing, fishing, and zoo.

In Hanoi, tourists can stay at InterContinental West Lake beside West Lake, Hanoi’s largest freshwater body, then rent a motorbike to visit capital icons like the Old Quarter, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Hoan Kiem Lake.

According to Booking.com, Da Lat, a chilly resort town in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong is where tourists can find brocade products along Prenn Pass, in Love Valley, on Liang Biang Mountain or at Da Lat market.

"But if you have a knack for items that embody the unique culture of different ethnic groups, you can visit B'nerC Brocade Weaving Village in Lac Duong District," it stated.

The online travel agency also urged tourists to explore high-end resorts along Nha Trang Bay, one of the world's most beautiful.

HCMC, Hanoi, Da Lat, Nha Trang and Da Nang reopened tourism activities and allowed accommodation facilities to resume operation since last month after prolonged social distancing.

Khanh Hoa, home to Nha Trang, and Da Nang are two among five localities to be given the green light to welcome foreign tourists from November along with Kien Giang, Quang Nam, and Quang Ninh.
