James Thornton, chief executive of Intrepid Group travel agency, said, “Vietnam remains a favorite for Aussies.”

He said his company chose Vietnam for two reasons – stunning cycling tours and amazing food adventures.

Besides, tourists can get 14 beers for just $20 Australian dollars in Vietnam, against two in Japan and three in Turkey.

Anthony Laver, group general manager of Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours, predicted that luxury river cruises through Vietnam and Cambodia on the Mekong River would be a popular trend in 2019.

Norman Arundel, director of hotels and resorts at Event Hospitality and Entertainments, said that Morocco and Vietnam would become more mainstream in 2019 as “an adventurers’ delight.”

Other destinations picked by the travel experts included Africa and Canada for nature and wildlife and France and Germany for food, wine and beer.

The article also provided useful insights into travel trends next year such as meeting new and local people with great stories behind them and leveraging technologies such as navigation and check-in via apps to enhance a traveller’s experience.

How does it sound if we spend the night out… on the beach?

Cam Ranh has more to offer than just an airport: lie back in a beachside shack, go for a swim and enjoy a BBQ under the stars by the campfire.

If you are fed with luxury resorts and constant pampering, maybe it’s time for a night in a beach hut away from the crowd. That’s exactly what Sao Bien Tourist Site (Cam Ranh, Khanh Hoa) has on the menu.

Located in Bai Lao village, the site is 90 kilometers from Nha Trang and 30 kilometers from Cam Ranh, convenient for passengers touching down at Cam Ranh Airport.

Not as crowded as Nha Trang, the waters off Cam Ranh are pristine with untouched beaches that attract many young backpackers.

What makes the site stand out are the tents for rent scattered along the beach. Away from the fake air-conditioned climate, tourists have a chance to spend the night on the beach, watch the sunrise and take a kayaking trip before the campfire is lit and the BBQ starts.

There are two kinds of tents available: wooden and canvas. Canvas tents are erected on the sand and furnished with mattresses, pillows, blankets and a fan for VND400,000 ($18) a night. Wooden huts are situated a little further down the beach and come with the same facilities for VND500,000.
