VIETNAM TRAVEL GUIDE

Vietnam is one of the most popular travel destinations in Southeast Asia – and with good reason. Whether it’s Hanoi and the beautiful Halong Bay in the north, Hoi An in the center or Ho Chi Minh City in the south, Vietnam is beautiful in every corner.

The best time to visit Vietnam is spring (February to April) and autumn (August to October). The temperatures are more moderate and rainfall is lighter. In spring, March and April have the lowest rainfall across all destinations and temperatures are pleasant, though still cool in the far north. Summers are sweltering hot in most of Vietnam, reaching more than 40 degrees Celsius/104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Things to See and Do in Vietnam

  • Take a Cruise on Halong Bay
  • Explore Cu Chi Tunnels
  • Unwind on Phú Quốc Island
  • Visit the historic site of Mỹ Sơn
  • Wander through the Imperial City in Hue
  • Travel along the Hải Vân Pass
  • Visit the Royal Tomb of Khai Dinh King
  • Trek the terraced rice fields of Sa Pa

Reisekosten

Unterkunft – It’s very inexpensive to find good accommodation when in Vietnam. Budget travelers will find hostel beds for 5 USD per night, while those wanting more comfort can even book luxury hotels at affordable rates.

Essen – Vietnamese food features a combination of five fundamental tastes in the overall meal. Must-try dishes in Vietnam include: pho, banh mi, banh xeo, goi cuon, com tam, and bun cha. If you eat at local restaurants, you’ll spend around 10 USD per day for food in Vietnam.

Transportmittel – Avoid taking taxis in Vietnam as they often target toursits for scams. Download the app “Grab” which is basically the Vietnamese version of Uber and you’re good to go. When using overnight buses and trains be sure to purchase your tickets in the official stations.

Vorgeschlagenes tägliches Budget

20-30 EUR / 22-33 USD

(Hinweis: Dies ist ein vorgeschlagenes Budget wenn man in einem Hostel übernachten, ab und zu auswärts isst, die meisten Mahlzeiten selbst kocht und die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel nutzt.

Wer jedoch in besseren Unterkünften übernachten oder häufiger auswärts essen möchte, muss mit einem höheren Wert rechnen!)

So kann man Geld sparen

  • Eat local food. Foreign restaurants are a lot more expensive compared to local Vietnamese places. You can save even more money when eating at street food places.
  • Refine the art of haggling. Especially when visiting markets, never accept the first price offered by the vendor. Your first offer should be a little less than half of the vendor's first price and then you go back and forth slowly finding a satisfying middle.
  • Book tours in advance. There are some places that are best visited with a tour. To get the best deal, be sure to book your day trips and tours in advance with services like Klook.
  • Check your Vietnam visa requirements. There are many countries eligible for Vietnam visa exemption but many that aren't. American, for instance, need a visa to enter Vietnam. Getting your visa in advance witha visa agency rather than sorting things out at the airport can save you a lot of money - and hassle.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM VIETNAM?

Vietnam is a fun and cheap travel destination that has something to offer for anyone. Whether you’re a budget traveler or looking for a luxury escape, you’ll find it in Vietnam.

Always remember to travel mindfully and respectfully. When visiting Vietnamese attractions, show respect and don’t take anything you’re not supposed to. Most places of worship will ask visitors to dress modestly. That means shoulders and knees covered. Be sure to dress appropriately, bring something to cover up or rent a scarf at most tourist sites for a small fee.

TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR VIETNAM

Ich bin immer wieder schockiert, wie viele Touristen keine Reiseversicherung abschließen. Eine Reiseversicherung gehört für mich zur Grundreisevorbereitung, genauso wie mein Flugticket oder eine Hotelbuchung.

Obwohl Taiwan relativ sicher ist, kann es immer zu unerwarteten Naturkatastrophen kommen und ich habe auch schon oft erlebt, wie Menschen Laptops und Telefone aus erster Hand gestohlen wurden.

Eine angemessene Versicherungsdeckung ist daher unbedingt zu empfehlen. Eine Reiseversicherung beinhaltet nicht nur medizinische Versorgungen (wenn man krank wird oder sich den Fuß bricht, zum Beispiel), sondern eine Reiseversicherung schützt auch dann, wenn einem zum Beispiel die Kamera gestohlen wird, der Flug gestrichen wird oder man durch eine Naturkatastrophe irgendwo fest sitzt.

Kurz gesagt, eine Reiseversicherung schützt gegen alle möglichen Szenarien, die beim Reisen auftreten können - und kann sogar dein Leben retten!
