While plane tickets may be the easiest and most direct way to get to Vietnam, they are also usually the most expensive option. If you’re willing to take a little more time, consider other options such as traveling by bus or train. Not only can this be cheaper, but it can also be a great way to see more of the country. (And who knows, you might even meet some interesting people along the way!)

4. Try haggling.

Haggling is a time-honored tradition in many countries, and Vietnam is no exception. When shopping for souvenirs or bargaining for prices, it’s important to start high and then slowly lower your offer until you reach an agreement with the seller. This can be a tricky process, but with a little practice, you can master the art of haggling and get better deals on items. Keep in mind that haggling is not only about getting the best price—it’s also about building relationships and showing respect for the person you’re negotiating with. So, don’t be afraid to give it a try next time you’re in Vietnam! You may be surprised at how much fun it can be.

Getting your travel plans sorted in advance can really help you keep the expenses in check when it comes to accommodation and meals. And hey, buying your own airfare tickets can also be a money-saver. So, plan ahead, compare options, and be your own travel agent to save some cash on the flights too!

This is great advice for backpackers and budget travelers. But let’s be real, if you’re lookin’ for luxury or high-end accommodations, you’re not gonna save much money.

Travel seems to be the most overlooked thing. A lot of people just assume all travel is cheaper there and while this is true, you can save a lot when you know where to go and how to travel throughout the cities.

I think people opt for hotels because they are easier and overlook room shares and smaller accommodations because they don’t know what they are getting. If you actually look online, most places these days have reviews and pictures.
