Travelling to Vietnam – is it worth it?

Vietnam is one of the places that travelers usually discuss about when someone is designing a budget travel plan, or finding a destination for a backpacking tour, or simply a place for holiday occasion. The frequently asked question is “Is Vietnam worth a visit?”.

The very first things to bare in mind is whereever you go- whether to Vietnam or else where in the world- there will always be some (large) differences between your home country and the country that you are to go to (in cultural, social, economical, political terms and many other aspects).

For that reason, if you are a real traveler who is excited to join new adventures, discover new things and wants to get on well with the local people as well as get used to the local customs and norms, some things to be prepared before travelling are basic knowledge about the local culture, psychological readiness to adapt to the most oddest stuff (or at least be pleased with them, accept them) and last but not least, basic conversational language (greeting, buying things, ordering food,etc).    

To get back to the point of Vietnam, travelling to Vietnam is not an exception, which means visitors should come to Vietnam with an open mind if you want to have good time here enjoying fantastic landscapes, unique and delicious food, realizing the friendliness and kindness of Vietnamese people. A sad fact about Vietnam tourism is the rate of tourists wishing to come back is just as low as 5% - such a huge difference compared to that of Thailand (50%).

People of Vietnam

There are always good and bad sides when you go to anywhere depending on your attitude toward the trip, your preparation, your experience, even your luck!

You can see a lot of negative stories talking about scams, bad manners of the local people, or being ripped off; some of them are facts, besides, some of them are sadly misunderstandings. But, apart from those negative stories, there are still many positive things that travelers tell the world about Vietnam, they even said that they would definitely come back. Most of those positive people suggest travelers should accept the truth that Vietnam is not totally beautiful in every aspect- like any other places, and most importantly, as a developing country it still has numerous problems needing to be improved.
