A new season is arriving, a merry Christmas is slowly coming, and everybody once again flocks to have their own plan for welcoming Noel.

Why don’t you try to welcome Christmas in a place you have never been to, to feel the full flavor of happy days in the year ending, and find for yourself a peaceful time to contemplate happened stories, and wait for happiness that are untold in your heart. 

Now, let’s look at some pictures of Christmas in Vietnam to feel the atmosphere there is as bustling as other countries in the world:

1. Sapa – A truly European-style Christmas season

Sapa is the best place for Christmas in Vietnam and also figures on the list of Vietnam destinations, where the entire nature is plunged into harsh cold weather and the paths being covered by the snow during many days. 

For the dreamlike people, Sapa is like a mini European of Vietnam. Visiting this foggy city in the bustling Christmas days makes people feel that they are in a magnificent Western city which are too beautiful to bewitch people’s mind.

2. Hanoi – Christmas comes to warm up whole winter

Ha Noi is one of the ideal destinations for Christmas in Vietnam. For Hanoi people, Noel appears not to have religious meaning, people considers it as an occasion for relaxing, family reunion, or just feel the peace dwelling in the heart.

Hence, at the early day of December, when seeing vivid color on busy streets, people are once again excited with the joy of waiting for Christmas coming to the splendid capital.

Perhaps, the St. Joseph's Cathedral, Hanoi is the place attracting the most number of people. We can see parishioners who are praying sincerely, or visitors are pensively contemplating the miniatures that retrace stories about Jesus God.

Da Nang is one of the ideal cities for Christmas celebrations in Vietnam. The coming of Christmas creates a unique beauty for this city - modem but antique that make people sometimes step faltered to enjoy fully Noel atmosphere in a dreaming Da Nang.

When visiting Da Nang on Christmas Eve, visitors cannot skip off Da Nang Church, where people can feel the hallowed atmosphere as if they came back to thousands of years ago and feel its quiet appearance despite the changes of the city in the recent years.

Being a dreaming city, Da Lat makes people dream more about a fairy sky each time Christmas is about to come. This seems to be a place for those who want to enjoy a Western – style Christmas in Vietnam. 

As staying in Da Lat on Christmas, you should go to Domaine Church, which possesses traditional French architecture with vaguely plateau taste, or visit Chicken Church - the most ancient and beautiful church in Dalat, or Cam Ly church, which conforms to the large roof of indigenous people.

5. Sai Gon – A sunny Christmas season

Saigon is sunny all year, therefore, if you want to experience a very different Noel that is boisterous in the sweet sunshine of the day, this is your place!

The whole city is often overwhelmed by the shimmering and colorful lights from just the end of November. Most of shops are decorated with full of colors as a sign for the coming of a new season. It can be said that, Saigon is one of the cities having the most typical Christmas activities in Vietnam.

But perhaps the most unusual and attractive area is Saigon Notre Dane Basilica area. People go there not only just for its splendid decoration but also for the desire of being harmonized into the solemn atmosphere and praying for good things.
