The first successful test of recreational space travel on July 11 has many people aiming for the prospect of "space tourism". Before realising this "luxury" dream, visitors can experience "space tourism" without leaving Earth. Fansipan peak is one of the rare destinations that help visitors get this experience.

After researching more than 28 million properties in more than 152,000 destinations worldwide, has suggested five out-of-this-world destinations across the globe that will transport travellers into ‘outer space’ without ever leaving the Earth’s surface to help prepare space wannabe travellers for when the time finally comes to book their trip to outer space.

Fansipan Mountain, known as the ‘Rooftop of Indochina’, is the highest peak in Vietnam and a great choice for your stargazing experience in Vietnam.

Far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Fansipan is an incredible place where you can feel like you are in space without actually having to leave the planet. To reach the summit, you can choose to hike or trek which normally takes two to three days.

Alternatively, you can also ride up to the summit via cable car. Once you reach the towering top you’ll be rewarded with an unbelievable sight of cloud-covered peaks stretching all the way to the horizon./.
