Backpacking and hammocking: Two words describe low-cost tourism in Vietnam

After spending time in Vietnam, Canadian tourists have compiled a list of travel experiences that can help them save money.

Matthew Pike, a Canadian, has written many articles on the travel website "The Culture Trip" about his experiences living in Vietnam. He decided to relocate here because he admired the culture and people. He now resides and works in Ho Chi Minh City.

Matthew stated in his travel article that "Vietnam is the place where tourists can make the most of their precious money."

"If you're willing to look for low-cost services and eat like a local, you can easily spend less than $ 20 per day - nearly 500 thousand VND," the Canadian tourist explained.

And here is the cheap travel experience that Matthew summed up after spending a long time living in the "S-shaped strip of land."

Move

Motorcycles are common in Vietnam. You can get a car for a reasonable price. However, Matthew stated that buying back an old car from a foreigner about to leave Vietnam is the most convenient option. The most convenient locations are Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Many foreigners rent motorcycles and go backpacking in Vietnam.

To locate, simply Google "sell motorcycles" with additional locations, which will yield hundreds of results to choose from. You can use it for a few hundred dollars and a small amount of money for the initial repair. If there is no longer any demand, it is not difficult to sell at the same price.

The Canadian visitor did not overlook the importance of purchasing a good helmet and travel insurance in case of possible uncertainty.

Motorbikes are convenient, but if you are not familiar with the road or traveling long distances, visitors can choose a plane, train, or bus.

Matthew said that passenger cars are vehicles that meet the needs of comfort and savings. The car is air-conditioned and there are day trips to all destinations. The fare of each trip is also very reasonable.

Accommodation

Vietnam, according to Matthew, is a very appealing destination for "backpackers." Most cities and towns are easily accessible and reasonably priced for visitors. However, he advises that if you want to save money, you should actively book ahead of time and track transactions.

Bunk bed sleeping.

Rooms with bunk beds designed as dormitories are the most affordable option. The benefits of this type of room include the opportunity for visitors to make new friends. However, it can be inconvenient if you run into drunk or insensitive men.

When renting a hotel, the price is also lower than in many developed countries. Breakfast is generally provided free of charge in hotel rooms. The Canadian visitor mentioned that cheap hotel are frequently located far from the center. Where there are a lot of foreigners renting, the price will be higher.

Resting in a hammock.

Also, if you plan to travel across Vietnam, consider bringing a good-quality hammock. In rural areas, some restaurants or households also allow you to get a free break. Some famous travel bloggers have experienced this and said that thanks to that they spend no more than 10 USD (more than 230 thousand VND) per day.

Dining and shopping

Saving money or not depends on how each individual spends their money. For example, it is difficult to break the habit of "overspending" on meals in large cities such as Italy, France, or the United States. However, in Vietnam, visitors can easily find delicious restaurants at reasonable prices.

Bread is a popular street food among many foreigners.

Shops that only cater to tourists will be more expensive. Don't be concerned if you don't speak Vietnamese. When you walk into the restaurant, you can indicate which items you want to order. And many locals can still communicate with visitors in English.

When shopping, go to places where the price list is open to the public. When shopping in traditional markets, remember to bargain to get the best price.

Recreational relaxation

If you want to go to museums, the admission fee is very low. Some places to visit include Hanoi's Temple of Literature and Ho Chi Minh City's War Remnants Museum.

Near the hotel, nightlife options include bars and beer. There are pubs that serve customers all night.
