About Travel to Hai Phong
Hai Phong is a city with more than two millennia of history that grew in size and importance dramatically at the end of the 19th Century when the French colonial government decided to develop the existing harbour into the largest port in its Indo-China Empire. Modern day Hai Phong is Vietnam’s third largest city after Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. As a tourist destination, however, Hai Phong tends to be overlooked in favour of Hanoi and most foreign visitors who come to Hai Phong are only passing through to connect with ferries to Cat Ba Island and on tours around the popular Ha Long Bay. Hai Phong does, however, have some notable points of interest and the fact that the city is not oriented towards the tourist industry (the city makes its money mostly through trade, manufacturing, agriculture and fisheries) will make it more appealing to some visitors.
Amongst the highlights of a visit to Hai Phong are:
- Do Son Beaches: Located 22 km from Hai Phong City, Do So has three beaches. These are the closest swimming beaches to Hanoi and as a consequence attract large numbers of city dwellers particularly at the weekend and on public holidays. Do Son is very much oriented toward the domestic tourism market.
- The local cuisine: Hai Phong is noted for it’s seafood dishes and this is the second biggest draw for tourists to come to the city. Amongst the best known seafood dishes in Hai Phong are brown noodles with crab, crab spring roll, red jellyfish salad, and fish noodles.
- The Old Quarter: Hai Phong has it own Old Quarter similar to the one in Hanoi, just with fewer tourists. Hai Phong’s Old Quarter is centred on Dien Bien Phu Street and Tran Hung Dao Street and the surrounding side streets. This area has the city’s best European style architecture as well some great cafes and bars.
- Du Hong Temple: This 17th Century Buddhist temple overlooking the sea is Hai Phong’s most famous historical attraction.
- Hong Khen Communal House: Fascinating and unique temple made from natural materials in a primitive style still used by the local community for important occasions.
- Bai Dao Villa: European style building used by Vietnam’s last Emperor but now open to the public as a museum.
- Tam Bac Lake and Flower Market: Located near the Old Quarter, the flower market is located the edge of a tree lined lake inside 5 colonial era buildings.
