What to eat

Vietnamese Food

It´s a must in Vietnam. Vietnamese food is one of our favorites cuisines in Asia. You should try delicious noodle soups, sandwich, coffee and ice cream, Pho and Bahn Mi. Prices are very affordable and you can find different dishes and street food starting from $1!

Vietnamese Coffee

One of the best and most popular coffees in the world is Vietnamese Coffee. Which one was our favorite coffee? Egg Coffee, without any doubt! We actually became addicted to this coffee and we also loved the atmosphere in the coffee shops.

Where to go

If you want a headache-free and smooth Vietnam Trip planning, you can contact Vietnam tours and they will take care of your daily trips in Vietnam! We know how convenient it is for us travelers to have someone plan our trips because this will let us have more time for other things.

Visit Vietnam: Saigon


There are almost 10 million people in the city of Saigon, as well as thousands of motorbikes, tasty street food and many activities you should try. There are also interesting museums and beautiful parks to visit here. Just be mindful of your belongings because there are too many people here and we don’t want to lose our valuables.

Visit Vietnam: Nah Trang

Nha Trang

Relax in the beach, visit the markets and enjoy the nightlife. We loved the vibes in Nha Trang.

Visit Vietnam: Hoi An

Hoi An

This is our favorite place in Vietnam. Just rent a bicycle and get lost around this small city. You can visit the beach, try local food, meet other travelers and most importantly, connect with local people. Don’t forget to also stop by and walk around local markets.


Enjoy the capital of Vietnam! Drink coffee in the afternoon and beer at night. Have fun walking around the lakes and their beautiful sunsets. It can be little bit busy in peak hours but very relaxing at night time.

Halong Bay

This is included in one of the 7 wonders of the world. It’s a perfect place for a getaway, picture taking, cave visitation and kayaking. A cruise around Halong Bay is also a must-try. We enjoyed it so much! 


Visit Vietnam: Sapa

This is a perfect place for hiking for a couple of days. You can stay in a home stay and drink happy water. It was great to have an opportunity to know how local people live in the mountain. You will surely have a good time watching the beautiful landscapes and rice fields.

Saigon to Hanoi by motorbike

Another great adventure you can try is a Vietnam motorcycle trip buying or renting a motorbike and traveling from Hanoi to Saigon and vice versa. Visit remote villages and there you’ll see splendid landscapes.
