1 US Dollar converts to around 23,200+ Vietnamese Dong (as of the time of writing). To be a millionaire in Vietnam, you only need to have USD 43! (PHP 2100+) Try checking your ATM balance to get a good shock from all the digits. Purchasing power considered, your money still goes a long way here. Today, it’s one of the World’s cheapest countries to travel. Vietnam is most known for its turbulent wartime history, delicious food, and Ha Long Bay. Before arriving in the country and traveling around its countrysides, little did I know that it is also home to some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Southeast Asia, and charming heritage sites that are worth a peek. Vietnam is also a great starting point to traverse the (Vietnam-Cambodia-Thailand) Indochina trail.
Travelers either arrive at Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) in South Vietnam or Hanoi in North Vietnam. Da Nang in Central Vietnam is also a good option as it caters to a growing number of direct international flights. Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi are well-connected by flight (2 hours) as well as by train (33 hours with no stops), and overnight buses.
