Bond over food. Seriously. Vietnamese people love to eat and love knowing the food they have prepared is enjoyed by you.

It can be hard to connect with people when you have a language barrier so it is always best to know some Vietnamese before going. Even if it is just 20 different phrases. It helps a lot!

@photastic I agree with this 100%

You don't have to know everything but having a basic understanding helps. Having a travel booklet or app handy helps too.

I like the idea of offering to teach English or working with children as a means to connect with people. You help the country while making lasting connections and memories.

Knowing some of the language will definitely help. I think if you plan on going here more than once, it is worth learning the language, even if it is just a crash course.

I couldn't agree more! One of the best ways to make personal connections while traveling in Vietnam is to take part in a local cooking class - it's a great way to learn about the culture and cuisine, as well as meet new people.

Joining a jazzy cooking class is a smashing idea! Not only can you learn to whip up some delectable Vietnamese dishes, but you'll also have the chance to bond with fellow food enthusiasts. Plus, who knows, you might end up with a top-secret recipe or two. Ever tried making pho from scratch? It's a game-changer!

I know it makes a difference knowing some the language. I think people in Vietnam also appreciate it too. I mean how would you feel if people visiting your home and didn't know how to speak your language. You would be worried about offending them or not being able to help them.

For sure! Getting a few Vietnamese phrases down is key for connecting with locals. I tried saying xin chào and they were pumped. It's cool to show respect for their culture.
