Hidden Gems in Vietnam

Many peaceful hidden gems can be found in Vietnam

There are so many beautiful and undiscovered places in Vietnam. Next time you visit be sure to venture off the beaten path. Instead of Ha Long Bay, try La Han Bay for less crowds. Instead of sticking to the Hoi An ancient city, venture out to the countryside to discover the peaceful rice paddies and more!

Vietnam on a budget

Vietnam might just be one of the cheapest places to visit in the world! Making it an amazing destination to visit affordably. I stayed in the most stunning hotels for $30 a night! I was in disbelief. I mean take a look at this hotel pictured which looks like Morocco but is in Hue, Vietnam for only $25 a night!

Food is super cheap too. You can eat one meal for less than $4.
