Don’t confuse between “15” and “50”, don’t have breakfast in hotel and be careful when riding motorbike are what two American tourists were drawn after a month travelling in Vietnam.

Steven and Bill, American tourists, is the owner of The Hungry Suitcase blog. After one-month journey, both of them give the question many times: “Thailand and Vietnam have many similar features in tourism, but why returning rate of tourist is 50% in Thailand while in Vietnam is only 5%? According to them, Vietnam is worth as the leading country in Southeast Asia to explore, but there are also some inconvenient experiences?” Bill said.

Buying without bargain

It took us a white to understand this. Sellers of Vietnam rarely use a fixed price which is up to who the buyer is. I don’t say all, but in many times, they said higher price than normal which are happened every day. Therefore, if you are really like an item, bargain for it, or not, don’t waste time with them.

Confusing between “15” and “50”

This usually takes place with the street hawkers. For example, you buy a cup of coconut water or clean a pair of shoes, make sure it is “15,000VND” rather than “50,000VND”. To make sure that everything is clarified, therefore, use fingers to show the price. You will think 35,000VND is small money, but this is the first reason why the tourists don’t come back to Vietnam.

Having breakfast in the hotel

Almost hotels in Vietnam from 2-star serve breakfast for tourist. But believe in me, Vietnam is a wonderful destination for street foods which are cheap and delicious like noodle, hủ tíu, Phở, Vietnam sandwich. Why do you have to free breakfast in the hotel and miss the chance to explore the city through amazing foods? During the time in Vietnam, we mostly sat on pavement to eat foods without boring.

Being subjective when riding motorbike

Traffic accident is the leading reason in the deaths of tourists. I got three times of motorbike accident in Vietnam, even I saw more dangerous situations on the way to Sapa. Motorbike is very dangerous but it is irresistible attraction and one of the most unforgettable experiences of us. Therefore, if you like riding motorbike, don’t forget to bring travel assurance for emergency situation.

Not sure food is cooked thoroughly

Abdominal pain, gastrointestinal disorders often occur in the less experienced travelers. Soup dishes are the main reason. Therefore, make sure that you eat in crowded shop, fire in whole day and dishes are boiled.
