10 reasons why you should travel to Vietnam (part 3 of 3)

#4 Best coffee in the world ?

There are almost no Starbucks with the humongous frap and latte but there is the French drip coffee that can be found all around the coutry, evden in the most remote villages. Why rush your visit in Vietnam? Enjoy a cup of black coffee (ca phe den) or iced coffee with condensed milk (cap he sua da/ nau da) and watch life goes by on a corner of the street. It might give you another point of view about the place you are in.

#3: Budget 

Vietnam is a well-known destination among budget travellers. Alhough the price is climbing, it’s still much cheaper than travelling in other continents. For example, a 5 star resort in Da Nang will cost you an equivalent amount to a 3 star hotel near JFK airport in NYC. For lower end market, there are a plenty of hostels and guest-houses in most cities. Food costs even lower and street foods are among the best in the world. That says, even in biggest metropolitan areas like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, you can get by a day with $15.  Also, keep in mind that not because you pay less that you get less!

#2: It’s people

Like many other neighbour countries in SE Asia, Vietnam has the best treasure: its people.  Everywhere you go, you will be welcomed by smiles and kind helps from the locals whether they know how to speak your language or not. People from Hue, for instance, are famous all over the country for their royal-like attitude: elegant and sweet. If you have time to spend in the Mekong delta of Vietnam, you will even be more surprised and inspired by the way you are received by local farmers. Dont be shy and try to communicate, you will not be disappointed.

#1: Amazing landscapes: 

There are no matches to the Pyramids, Sydney’s Opera House or the Grand Canyon. However, Vietnam is a hidden gem that only those visiting the country will be able to witness and tell. To put it correctly, Vietnam is not short of World Heritage Site: Halong Bay, Phong Nha Ke Bang caves, Hoi An Ancient Street and Cham Islands are all recognized for their intense beauty. However, it is the bits and bites of the non-heritage site that will surprise you further. Da Lat, for example, is too picturesque to miss. French style villas sitting next to a pine forest, bordered by strawberry garden. It’s like Europe but the market scenes speak otherwise.
