For some, a Vietnam trip is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. However, it can be expensive and confusing to get around. You’ll need to budget for the cost of flights, accommodation, meals, transportation and activities. The chart below is a rough guide to how much you should expect to spend per day on your trip to Vietnam.
Whether you’re staying in rustic homestays or boutique apartments, sipping cocktails at a Saigon skybar or knocking back a bia hoi at a Hanoi train street spot, this country knows how to treat its guests. Get a taste of the local food scene on a Hanoi street food tour, visit the One Pillar Pagoda and Ho Chi Minh’s stilted house or learn about Vietnam’s turbulent history at the austere War Remnants Museum.
The UNESCO-listed Halong Bay is a spectacular natural wonder dotted with limestone karsts. From scuba diving to kayaking, there’s plenty to do here. Alternatively, head to Sapa, a mountain town famous for terraced rice fields and hill tribe villages. Those who are more interested in Vietnam’s modern military history should make sure to visit the Cu Chi Tunnels. The maze-like underground tunnels were used by VC soldiers to ambush American troops and also served as living spaces.
For nature lovers, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is an incredible place to see the country’s impressive rock formations inside natural caves. The park also offers swimming, cliff jumping and jungle trekking. Those with an adventurous spirit can try the “cave hopping challenge” in which they jump down into the craggy crevices of a cave. 다낭 마사지 빨간그네, 청룡열차, 화월루
