But location and affordability are not the only reasons to use Vietnam as your hub for traveling around Asia. The Vietnamese people are some of the most friendly and welcoming people you will ever meet. And, of course, the food in Vietnam is absolutely amazing. From street food vendors to high-end restaurants, there is something for everyone in Vietnam. Trust us, you’ll want to stay here longer than you originally planned!

If you’re looking to explore more of Southeast Asia, consider taking a bus from Vietnam to neighboring countries like Laos, Cambodia or Thailand. Buses are a very affordable way to travel, and you can find buses that go to most major destinations in the region. For example, there are overnight buses from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Luang Prabang (in Laos), Siem Reap (in Cambodia) and Bangkok (in Thailand). The journey time is usually around 10-12 hours, and the cost is typically around $30-$40. So why not visit a few different countries on your next trip?

I have always wanted to go on a 6 month trip throughout all of Asia. Maybe some day I will be able to afford it. I really want to do it while I am young enough to enjoy everything!

This is a great suggestion but for me, if i am going through Vietnam, I plan on staying there. I would much rather plan individual trips to countries then fly through and around to several but that is just me!

I agree with you. I’d say that using Vietnam as a hub makes sense because it’s the closest country to several countries in the region and can make it easier to get around. If you look at where Vietnam is, it’s basically in the center of Asia: Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar is west of Vietnam, China is north, Japan/Korea/Taiwan is northeast, Philippines is east, Malaysia/Indonesia is to the Southeast, Singapore is to the southwest. Very convenient and prices for flights are cheap.
