The website described Vietnam with "endless adventure" for solo travelers. "Hop on a boat that departs from Hạ Long and cruise through Bai Tu Long Bay, home to some of the world’s most striking blue water and natural landscapes; take a guided tour of Hang Sơn Đoòng, the largest natural cave in the world; visit Hội An during the full moon and you’ll be welcomed by the awe-inspiring sight of hundreds of lanterns floating down the Thu Bồn River during the city’s monthly full moon festival," Travel and Leisure wrote.

Ho Chi Minh City is highly recommended for those traveling alone. The abundant amusements to experience "street food at Bến Thành Market, brush up on Vietnam War history during a tour of the War Remnants Museum and the Cu Chi Tunnels" will impress the travelers well. Besides, exploring Hanoi the capital of historical and cultural sites, and taking a leisurely stroll around Hoàn Kiếm Lake are the must-try.

Although traveling alone can gain a number of benefits, such as reflection, self-discovery, and new friendships, coming to a strange country without partners may be risky. According to the website, the top 20 countries are based on the safe, warm welcome sites, ideal for first-time solo travelers.
