Having been to both, I think each one has very different things to offer as a guest visiting or someone considering moving to either place. For me, I always felt a strong connection to Vietnam as I am part Vietnamese myself.

I’ve been to Thailand and I think the people are very friendly and the night life scene is great for people who are single. I haven’t been to Vietnam but the one thing that turns me off is their 1 month visa. They should offer 3 month visas for foreigners for those who want to stay longer.

I have never been to Thailand. I have considered it a few times but just never really planned anything out. I mean it sounds lovely when I read about it. I think Vietnam overall is a better place to travel to.

I've been to both, and I think it really depends on your personality.

Thailand is more modern, with lots of good restaurants and shopping. You can also get around easily using Uber or Grab. But Vietnam is more laid-back, and has lots of beautiful scenery. We went on a cruise down the Mekong River in Vietnam, which was amazing!

In the end, it all comes down to what you want out of your trip.

Having been to most Asian countries, I can say that both Vietnam and Japan stand out the most. I think Thailand is a beautiful place but I feel when it comes to food and culture, more is going on in Vietnam.

I think that Vietnam is the better choice. Thailand is a great country, but it's a little more expensive and there are more tourists there, so it can be hard to get immersed in the local culture. Vietnam has a lot of things going for it: delicious food, beautiful beaches, and a rich history. I've been there many times and loved it each time I was there!

@ElizabethGardner After traveling to both Thailand and Vietnam, I believe that Thailand is the better choice. While Vietnam has its charms, Thailand's infrastructure is more developed and its attractions are more easily accessible. Additionally, the Thai people are incredibly friendly and welcoming, making for a more enjoyable travel experience overall.

I've been to both countries and I have to say, I really like Vietnam. It's a lot less developed and touristy than Thailand, so you get a more authentic experience of the country. The food is also amazing!

Hmmm, tough decision! I think it really depends on what kind of experience you're looking for. Do you want to explore bustling cities or relax on a beach? Do you want to try new foods or stick to the familiar? Ultimately, it's up to you to decide which country is the best fit for your travel needs!

That's a great way to think about it! Both Thailand and Vietnam have so much to offer, so it really comes down to what kind of experience you're looking for. Whether it's exploring unique cultures, trying out delicious food, or simply relaxing on the beach, each country has something special to offer.

I don't think Thailand is a better option just because it's more developed and popular with tourists.
