    Vietnam is a particularly easy country to travel to, prices are cheap and travelling between different destinations is easy.

    Here’s one of my Vietnam Travel Tips, there is no need to get a Visa before hand. As soon as you arrive get a Vietnam Visa on arrival. Vietnamese Dong is the currency of the country, withdraw it from an ATM rather than knocking at an exchange.

    Start your trip with backpacking Ho Chi Minh, the financial capital of Vietnam. There are many things to do in Ho Chi Minh including exploring historical architecture and understanding its history through its fantastic museums.
