Are there any places that are free to get into, like specialty parks or amusement parks? Those are my favorite places to people watch.

I agree with everything you said, but I also think that people watching in Vietnam is best done at the coffee shops. The Vietnamese coffee shops have such a unique vibe and feel to them that it’s hard to get enough of them!

People-watching is something I love to do but would never admit offline to enjoying. I think there is a stigma attached to people just watching others, even if there is not malicious intent behind it.

I prefer to be in a park space for this myself. I think it is more relaxing. Are there any park areas in or near major cities that are active with people for people watching?

Hoi An is probably my favorite place for this. You are in a very active area in the city, in central Vietnam so you get to experience seeing all sorts of different styles in terms of clothing and lifestyles people live.

I thought this was something I only did in 2022. LOL
Anytime I go somewhere new, I like to find a park and just watch people and will make up my own plots and stories for them. It is so much fun! I have to do this in Vietnam again. These places sound perfect for it!
