Vietnam is most known for its turbulent wartime history, delicious food, and hyped-up Ha Long Bay.
It is also home to some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Southeast Asia, and charming heritage sites that are worth a peek.
1 US Dollar = 21,475 Vietnamese Dong (as of the time of writing). To be a millionaire in Vietnam, you only need to have USD47!
Try checking your ATM card balance to get a good shock from all the digits. Purchasing power considered, your money still goes a long way in Vietnam.
This country is a great start (or end) to the Vietnam-Cambodia-Thailand Indochina banana pancake trail.
