Travel Guide For Vietnam

Like so many other Southeast Asian countries, the #1 thing that pops into my mind when I think of Vietnam is food, especially street food. Then I remember the pretty villages, the countless motorbikes, bustling streets, friendly locals and the coffee as well!

My love for Vietnam is true, so I’ll make a bucket list for… you. Some of the best places to visit in Vietnam include Ho Chi Minh (its biggest city, but not the capital), Danang, Hoi An and Ha Long Bay. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the local markets, enjoy a boat tour and take a walk in the rice fields as well.

Already started planning your Vietnam itinerary? Awww yesss! Before going, I recommend checking out all my articles about this special country, so that you can organise the best Vietnam holiday for you.

Things To Know Before You Go – Vietnam

Currency

The Vietnamese Dong (VND) is the official currency of Vietnam. 1 USD is the equivalent of 23.170 VND.

Languages

The main language spoken in Vietnam is Vietnamese. But, luckily for travellers, English is basically their second language.

Religions

It is said that Vietnam is an atheist country - at least officially. The truth is that around 80% of the population follows tam giáo - a trio of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.

Best Time To Travel

The best time to visit Vietnam is from December to February, but it really depends on what part of the county you want to explore.

Visas

Yep, you’ll need to apply for a visa to enter Vietnam. Make sure you look into which one you need and arrange it before your trip.

Vaccines

No officially required vaccines for entering the country, but for your own safety, it is recommended to have these two taken before your trip: Hepatitis A and Typhoid.

SIM Cards

Countless companies offer packages for prepaid SIM cards to travellers right at the airport. My best recommendation is Viettel.

I’m a travel enthusiast, content creator and sun seeker extraordinaire! I love a good matcha latte, am obsessed with hats and like to give human names to the stray animals that I befriend on my travels ( I’m talking about you, Lesley!) In 2018 I took the leap and switched my London lifestyle for continuous adventures abroad.
