Vietnam

We spent three weeks in Vietnam, and loved every second of it.  Vietnam was the one country on our 5 months trip in 2017 that we wished we had more time to explore.  Although we saw an incredible amount of the country, we feel there is so much more to see.

Before we arrived, we were a bit nervous about backpacking around Vietnam.  Stories of scams and tourist rip-offs are common.  But with your wits about you, there are so many things to love.

The food was incredible, the scenery was beautiful, the people were friendly.  We can’t wait to go back!

Wondering what to do in Vietnam?  Looking for a 3 week itinerary for Vietnam?  Just curious about what it’s like to explore the country?  Check out all our posts on Vietnam below.
