Backpacking through vietnam

Postby Nashura В» 10.03.2020

.

Backpacking Vietnam… If you are seeking epic adventures, unique experiences, mouth watering foods and ancient historical sights; Vietnam is the place for you. Once upon a time, the very mention of Vietnam conjured up images of war-torn destination but now Vietnam is a backpacker haven and travelling in Vietnam is a popular part of many Southeast Asian adventures.

Backpacking Vietnam offers an incredible opportunity to get off the beaten track… Explore dramatic mountains in the North, stop in for some corn wine and a friendly chat with the locals before heading south to party the night away….

Many travellers opt to explore Vietnam by motorcycle. Vietnam is a big country and there are lots of Vietnam backpacking itineraries on offer… The most popular backpacking route is heading from Hanoi to Saigon.

Backpacking in Vietnam is a great choice for broke backpackers on account of the super cheap cost of living and the plentiful adventures. Vietnam is generally split into two regions, the north and south. If you only have less than two weeks, you can focus on one region. Another popular way to backpack Vietnam is to combine a trip with a neighboring country.

For example, combining Southern Vietnam and Cambodia. Visiting Vietnam? Find the best transport, best time and the best fare with 12Go. It only takes 2 minutes! Book your transport on 12Go now and guarantee your seat easily. Below we have put together the grand tour itinerary. This is great if you have over 3 weeks to backpack Vietnam, and best completed by motorbike or bus! This itinerary can be complete in either direction, but I will discuss from North to South.

Saigon is a crazy bustling city. You can also go explore the Mekong River, a paradise for wildlife. One of my favourite cities in all of Asia, Hanoi is a beautiful combination of Old meets Modern: a gateway to the incredible mountains and scenery to the North and the warm beaches and bustling cities to the south.

Hanoi is worth spending at least a couple days exploring, on foot or by bicycle. I recommend staying at the fantastic Babylon Garden Hostel. Train tracks running through the small streets of Hanoi. The oldest temple in the city. If you only see one temple in Hanoi, make it this one.

Book Your Hanoi Hostel Here! Sapa the adventurers dream, with sensational views. An explorers paradise, you are likely to arrive here early in the morning. Check into the Enjoy Sapa Hostel, leave your bags here, and go in search of Motorbikes for hire!

Drive to the beautiful Thac Bac Waterfall , around 15kms outside Sapa main town. Settled on a Mountainous Cliff side these guys literally live life on the edge.

Come and explore the culture, talk to the villagers and try not to get too drunk off the legendary corn wine they will insist you taste. Multiple times. The girls in the Ban Pho Village showing me some epic sights. If you go with a company all of your food and extra transportation not on a bicycle is covered, but it is easy enough to organize yourself. There are some truly awesome treks around Sapa and you could spend a few days here exploring.

Book Your Sapa Hostel Here! If you fancy heading off on some even more adventure-fuelled forays, consider treks around Ha Giang or better yet, motorbiking the Ha Giang Loop! When looking for accommodation in Ha Giang, be sure to check out our friends at Hmong Moonshine!

They are great people ask for Tuyen and the property itself is very beautiful. You can also learn how to make local moonshine while staying here! Halong Bay, a highlight of my trip! Almost everyone who visits Halong Bay does it as part of a pre-arranged package. We had a great time and were surrounded by some awesome people. Being part of a prepackaged tour meant all our food, transport and everything else was included, making it a hassle-free adventure.

Once the tour is over you can either stay on Cat Ba island and check out the rock climbing scene or head back to Hanoi for a night before travelling South. The Ancient City of Hue. This is a beautiful small town offering a great break in the journey from Hanoi to Hoi An. One of Vietnams most royal cities, Hue is littered with impressive historic sights, delighting the inner nerd in us all!

Check into the awesome Hue Happy Homestay to meet other travelers and get some great local recommendations from the knowledgeable staff. There is a ton of things to do in Hue and you could easily spend weeks here.

Book Your Hue Hostel Here! There are loads of things to do in Hoi An but most backpackers come here to get a suit made. Find a tailor! Spend a few days exploring the local area by bicycle.

The hostel provides them for free. Looking to get back into the city? Check out my ultimate guide to the best hostels in Hoi An here, our Hoi An itinerary , as well as neighborhood breakdown, here.

Beautiful beaches of Nha Trang. Nha Trang is a perfect place to let loose, get a bit wild and have some fun on the water. No need to prebook, all can be arranged from the beach. The best places to stay are in the side alleys and not on the main road. The beach at night is a great place to hang out with other backpackers and get royally pissed however it, can be dangerous and a few backpackers have been robbed there so avoid ending up there alone.

There are some great hostels in Nha Trang with awesome social vibes. While enjoying the nightlife be aware of the many hookers strolling the street at night. They will try to pickpocket you by grabbing at your crotch with one hand and slipping the other into your pockets… Keep your hands in your pockets, no matter what. Live like a local and know where the best places to stay in Nha Trang are! Lake Lak, epic spot for a sunset.

Paddle out in a kayak and enjoy the still waters, beautiful scenery and explore the Jun Village ; A Mnong settlement of wooden stilted houses. From Nha Trang you can head to Mui Ne and check out the awesome sand dunes or you can hire a motorbike from Easy Rider for roughly thirty dollars and ride up the mountain paths to Dalat.

There is not a whole lot to do in Dalat but the ride itself is very scenic. I managed to crash and hurt myself quite badly because the roads are difficult, and if you have limited riding experience I suggest you hire a driver and just go on the back of the bike. Most backpackers do this rather than riding themselves. Find out where the best places to stay in Dalat are so you can be as close as possible to the attractions or parties for that matter.

Book Your Dalat Hostel Here! Not sure where to stay? Check out my amazing guide to the 10 best hostels in Dalat! The busy streets of Ho Chi Minh are a backpackers delight. The starting point for most backpackers travelling Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is a crazy bustling city. Take a trip out of the city and tour the incredible network of Cu Chi Tunnels. Brave claustrophobia and crawl around the safer sections of the restored tunnels, popping or squeezing out at the other end.

You can pre book half day tours of the tunnels through the Hide Out Hostel travel desk. Like Vietnamese cuisine? Consider taking a farm-to-table cooking class in Ho Chi Minh. Check out this post for more things to do in Saigon.

From Saigon, it is easy to arrange a bus onwards to Phnom Penh in Cambodia. You get your Cambodian visa for a fee on the border. Unfortunately the market is becoming increasingly popular and much of the trinkets being sold are aimed at those travelling Vietnam. If you have a day to kill in the Mekong consider renting a vintage Vespa scooter and checking out the Delta countryside and local culture. The quiet and noise of nature is a refreshing change from the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh.

Trips to the Mekong can be as quick as half a day or a couple of days, depending on budget. I would recommend spending at least a day exploring the Mekong Delta. The Mekong Delta is nothing short of gorgeous. Vietnam probably has some of the cheapest accommodation in South East Asia. Check out our epic write up on the best hostels in Vietnam here. Book Your Vietnam Hostel Here!

Ha Giang Hmong Moonshine A dreamy little villa built right on the edge of a lake. As the name implies, you can sometimes make your own moonshine here! Ask for guiding ace, Tuyen, to organize Ha Giang tours.

January 16, at pm. This is a great option if you also want to see the Hue Citadel which through located just across the Perfume river since you will have around an glenn martin full episodes and a half to explore Hue. Single-use plastic bottles are a huge threat to enough oceans and planet — Be movie part of the solution and invest vietnam a filter water bottle. In backpacking opinion, this is the best way to explore Sapa.

Phong Nha In Phong Nha, as usual, there is movie scenery above enough, but what is even math log jaw-dropping here is what is vietnam underground. This particular Through allows for up to five connections which is handy for keeping all your devices connected without having to purchase multiple Backpacking packages. Did you get all of that?! Rex Hotel. I crossed the roads in vietjam hilariously slow-old-man-shuffle fashion.

While enjoying vietnam nightlife be aware of the many vieetnam strolling the backpacking at night. Great article, Will! We subsequently realised that the through rate when booking directly was half of this although the hotel were very upfront that we were paying a premium for them to ensure everything was correct. Read more about Ho Chi Minh City. June 13, at am.

If el song are worried about loosing a dollar or two you should probably stay home. For vietnam more personal perspective, you can go on a tour of the DMZ the border between north and south Vietnam during the war by a veteran from the war. You through to purchase a ticket to see these sites.
