Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Stay outside the Old Town as prices drop, and find more local eateries rather than restaurants-far cheaper (meal+side+drinks for 100,000 dong!)

Liked: Nice to wander, great and cheap food if you know where to go, more chilled out than Hue and Hanoi.

Disliked: Often a little too touristy and too many locals hassling you.

Disliked: No.
