    Great blog post! We’ve been thinking of visiting Vietnam in the near future. Seems like we need to be prepared for the chaos though!

      Hi Anders and Cindy! Thank you for reading and for your comment 🙂

      You should definitely prepare for the chaos, but that happens mostly in the big cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh.
      Vietnam has an amazing nature and a lot of peaceful places as well. You can check out some of my posts on Instagram for more information or reach out on my social media, I’ll be happy to give you a few more tips about travelling in Vietnam 🙂

      Cheers,
      Dan

    Hey Daniel ! Nice and informative post. I knew the east Asian countries are cheap to travel but this post cleared my many of the doubts. Now when I will plan to travel foreign , I will definitely reach out Vietnam.
    Keep the good work up.

      Thank you, Prabhakar 🙂

      Yes Vietnam is certainly one of the cheapest countries in the region, but it has a lot to offer, from chaotic city, through untouched nature and amazing caves to beautiful sandy beaches.

      Cheers,
      Dan

    I explored Hanoi on foot because seriously all the traffic was giving me major anxiety, haha. Glad to know someone succeeded and lived to tell the tale. I agree with you about food though, street over hotels. No one on the streets in Hanoi tried to rip me off but my hostel definitely overpriced me by a lot for each tours.

      I know, right? The traffic is horrible. I’m sorry to hear about the hostel but yeah, a lot of hostels do that in Hanoi unfortunately.

    Hanoi seems really cool! I’m glad to know it’s safe to eat the street food there! I’m always a little wary of eating street food in China. haha

    Love Hanoi – it was the last city we visited on our recent long-term travel trip. That is a really crazy story about the tiger meat, and well done for standing your ground. Something similar happened to me in Beijing when somebody who wanted to practice English approached me, and we went to a tea shop – then they brought a bill for about $150! I ended up just walking out. I knew that similar things happened in Vietnam but tiger meat is quite a stretch, haha!

      Yes, Alex, the streets are filled with such people that have what appears to be a genuine approach but are only after your money. It’s a bad thing that after such experiences a lot of tourists tend to stay away from locals, even from the ones that actually have good intentions.

    Nice post !! The story of cousin and tiger meat was funny but I understand you would be in very strange situation that time and may be hard for you…but good that you come out of that..
    I liked your photos too 🙂

    Very interesting post and informative. Hanoi is easily one of my favorite cities because of its chaotic charm that shows a lot of culture for a big city. I loved watching the locals, especially in the morning sitting down in low chairs sipping their pho and women selling just about anything on their bicycles. Im usually a nature kind of person but i loved hanoi anyways. But ofcourse to each his own.

    I was in Hanoi 3 years ago and I absolutely loved my time there. The people are so warm, the food is absolutely delicious and the lakes are magical. I miss the sounds of the bike and the taste of the pho bo and bahn mi. Would love to go back some day.

    This is one place that is defo on my bucket list, some great tips in this guide especially on what to do if you believe you are being scammed. I think scamming tourists happens a lot around the world not just in Vietnam but to claim you were eating tiger meat is a bit of a stretch lol. Thanks for sharing.

    Gosh, it always surprises me how cheap it’s to travel in Asia! No matter how often you go there, you never get used to that 🙂 You seem to have had an epic adventure btw!
