We've explored big cities, small villages, high mountain communities, and incredible seaside resorts. We have travelled on horrendous buses, comfortable trains, and exhilarating bum-numbing motorcycles. We’ve slept in rooms like concrete bunkers, rooms with full cable TV and balconies, and a beautiful room floating amid Ha Long Bay. We’ve eaten some of the most disgusting and most delicious foods, and admired certain foods which we were too afraid to try . We’ve ventured out of our comfort zones, mostly voluntarily but sometimes forced, and loved every minute of it. We’ve been ripped off bad, and struck incredible bargains. But most important we’ve created incredible memories that will last a lifetime and had a ball creating them.
Vietnam was an incredible country. There is so much history and culture and the people are more than happy to indulge curious tourists with tales of adventure and hardship.
We’ve spent a month here but instead of feeling like we’ve conquered a country it’s like we’ve just been given a small taste of a cake that is much bigger than we ever imagined.
If our experiences in this country are any indication of the things to come in the future countries we visit it’s going to be an amazing trip!
Thank you Vietnam, see you later.
Our next country is Laos, as we fly from Hanoi to Luang Prabang.
Total Spending for 4 weeks in Vietnam inclusive of everything = $1,644
