Vietnam on a Shoestring - HCMC to Hanoi and everything in between

ShekhaV | Apr 10, 201702:56 AM     2

Hi everyone!

I am visiting Vietnam for the first time and am basing my trip mainly around food and seeing as much as I can. We are doing the whole thing by motorbike and basically want the most authentic, local experience that we can possibly get. We will be slumming it; we will be looking to save money. But I have heard that food is delicious and cheap so I'm hoping you guys can recommend some cool options.

Street food, cool bars, interesting restaurant concepts and maybe one high end in Hanoi or HCMC would be fantastic. Also up for Chowdowns if people are around the same time. This is the rough route:

Ho Chi Minh
Dalat
Nha Trang
Da Nang
Hoi An
Ninh Binh
Cat Ba / Halong bay
Hanoi
