More and more people are getting back out on the road and hitting the skies. With COVID restrictions being lifted, this could not be a better time. It does not help that gas is reaching an all-time high, but what is a little bit of money on a lifetime of memories? There is nothing like building long-lasting memories that you and your kids can carry with you everywhere you go for the rest of your lives. While you will no doubt have tons of exciting destinations to choose from, you should put Vietnam right at the top. Want to know what makes the country so special?
You might not know it, but Vietnam is one of the old dated cultures in South East Asia. It dates back to the early 2000 BC. Throughout its inception, there have been a lot of interesting developments and turnabouts, starting with the native Dong Son culture. In addition to this, the country is heavily influenced by Chinese, Khmer, and Indian cultures, along with some French colonialism. You will see this incorporated not only into the street designs and building designs, but you will see it in everything from the people to the food. It is a place to experience a lot of everything in one spot.
It Is Heavily Documented
The best thing about Vietnam being so old is, people have already been there and done that. If there is something in Vietnam to be explored, you best bet someone has already explored it. While there is nothing like being the first, hindsight is a powerful tool. Especially when it comes to traveling. There are a lot of sites like the Vietnam itinerary that already have 21-day trips planned out for people looking to explore the country. They will provide you with a list of the most exciting attractions, as well as what you need to know about visiting them. This will help you get the most out of your travels.
Speaking of cultured food, street food is just one of the many trademarks of Vietnam. There are plenty of food stalls you can stop at on the sidewalk and converse with the locals while grabbing some delicious home-cooked cuisine. They have everything from pho noodle soup to spring rolls, banh mi, sticky rice, and a whole selection of seafood. Vietnamese food is always tasty and fresh, so you don’t have to worry about the health grade.
Access To Fresh Fruit
Whether you are a big fan of watermelon or pineapple, it is hard to turn down a succulent, juicy piece of fruit on a hot Vietnamese day. Tropical fruit is certainly something you do not want to miss during your travels to Vietnam. It is sold just about everywhere all over the inner city or you can find it at the malls as wells. You will never have to worry about overpaying for it, as it is always cheap, and better yet, it is always fresh and delicious right down to the very last drop. There are also all kinds of exciting tangy fruits that you have likely never even heard of. Do not be afraid to get outside your comfort zone.
