It's no secret that Vietnam is a great place to travel on a budget. With its stunning natural landscapes, rich culture, and delicious food, the country has something to offer everyone. And thanks to the current inflation rate, there are still plenty of ways for budget-minded travelers to explore Vietnam without breaking the bank. photo: Alice Young Book your flights and hotels well in advance Eat at local restaurants and street stalls Visit free attractions…

I think it is always smart to book in advance but the problem a lot of people are having right now is airlines canceling their flights on them. I have heard this multiple times and it seems to be happening everywhere. The US has a major pilot shortage at the moment which is why this is happening. That and the cost of flights go up and down so often that people tend to all book when the prices are low so they overlook flights.

I think it's so important to have a mix of budget and luxury travel. I have spent my time in Vietnam traveling on a budget, but I also splurged on a few nice hotels and restaurants, and I feel like that balance has really helped me get the most out of my experience.

I think that's a great tip, but it's important to do your homework before you go. I've been to Vietnam a couple of times, and I've found that when you're in the big cities, there are a lot of tourists and they all want to spend money at the same places. So if you want to save money, try going to some of the smaller towns and rural areas outside of big cities like Saigon.

Vietnam is likely still going to be one of the cheaper places to visit, even with inflation. I think the same can be said for Mexico. It is just a matter of where you stay and what you plan on doing. You can easily make a trip on a budget!

I am so paranoid that while I know booking a flight and vacation in advance is smarter and often cheaper, I just don't feel like I can risk it being canceled on me. I really want to go back to Vietnam but I have to wait until all this nonsense of canceled flights stops.

I am jealous of my American friends because the inflation rate in Vietnam is helping them travel cheaply. The U.S. dollar is worth more than it used to be in Vietnam, as it is now worth 23,415 Vietnamese dong compared to 15,089 dong ten years ago. However, there has not been much of a change for the British pound over that time period.
