Join Thien Minh Group (TMG) in getting to know these three dynamic and beautiful Vietnamese cities.

1. Hanoi

Vietnam’s ancient capital has a treasure trove of tangible and intangible cultural heritage which is why Hanoi is ranked 42nd out of 100 of the world’s best cities to explore on foot. This makes choosing the right place to stay to conveniently explore the city of utmost importance.

Located next to Hanoi’s Old Quarter, Flower Garden Hotel – a member of Thien Minh Group (TMG) – is ultra convenient for visitors to explore some of the city’s most famous tourist attractions including the Old Quarter, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Vietnam Military History Museum, Hanoi Cathedral, Temple of Literature and the Tran Quoc Pagoda.

From the elegantly-designed Flower Garden Hotel, guests are a short stroll away from the famed 36 streets of the Old Quarter, with additional easy access to public transport and ride-hailing apps making getting around extremely convenient.

At the end of a day sightseeing around the capital, guests can look forward to returning to Flower Garden Hotel in time to watch a fiery red sunset over Truc Bach Lake and West Lake from 14′ Rooftop Bar, as well as savor delicious and authentic Vietnamese dishes at Spice Viet Restaurant. As night falls, a peaceful sleep awaits at the National Geographic magazine-recommended property in the heart of Hanoi.

2. Hoi An

Ranked 87th in the world’s top 100 places to explore on foot, Hoi An attracts visitors with its idyllic, rustic beauty.

From ÊMM Hotel Hoi An, a green oasis a short walk from Hoi An’s Ancient Town, guests can take in street scenes that speak to the culture and lifestyle of the people of Hoi An in its busy alleyways, noodle vendors leaning over steaming pots of soup and atmospheric sidewalk cafes.

To travel further, guests can borrow bicycles from ÊMM Hoi An to visit the vast, green rice fields in Cam Chau, the water coconut forests in Cam Thanh, the Thanh Ha pottery village, and the beautiful beaches of Hoi An, including Cua Dai Beach.

Situated directly on Cua Dai Beach, just 5km from the center of the Ancient Town, Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa enjoys the perfect location facing the De Vong River and backed by the gentle waves of pretty Cua Dai beach.

Like a miniature Hoi An, Victoria Hoi An’s design takes inspiration from a traditional coastal Vietnamese fishing village. The spacious grounds offer guests a range of fascinating experiences easily explored on foot.

Stroll the meticulously-maintained resort grounds and find shade under lush trees or get close to nature among the gorgeous lawns and fragrant flowers. Then walk to the picturesque infinity pool at the heart of the resort with views looking out to the East Sea.

More active-minded guests can walk to the football pitch or tennis court areas to expend some energy or head beachside to enjoy the waves off of Cua Dai Beach on a sailing catamaran, exclusively available at Victoria Hoi An.

From L’Annam Restaurant, famous for its croissants and room service delivered by traditional yoke, guests can take the resort’s electric shuttle to visit the Ancient Town or go on a sidecar tour or borrow a resort bicycle to explore nearby attractions like an old brick kiln, Tra Que vegetable village and Kim Bong carpentry village or book a day trip to visit the Cham Islands.

3. Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City is the third Vietnamese city to make the list of the world’s 100 most walkable cities. Situated in the heart of the city named after Vietnam’s most beloved leader, ÊMM Saigon Hotel is ideally located for visiting the city’s many cultural and historical landmarks, from walking through bustling Ben Thanh Market to strolling along the famous Nguyen Hue pedestrian street or perhaps stopping to take in the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral.

Guests at ÊMM Saigon can also enjoy authentic Vietnamese dishes at Spice Viet Restaurant, conveniently found within the hotel. From signature Saigonese dishes such as broken rice with grilled pork, beef stew that’s simmered for 8 hours, and banh khot (mini rice flour pancakes) to Hue’s famous steamed rice cakes, guests can look forward to an unforgettable culinary experience.
