Vietnam among top 20 best places to travel on a budget

The Australian travel newspaper Traveler has just published an article introducing 20 of the world's most affordable and valuable destinations that tourists should visit in 2023, including Vietnam.

According to Traveler, Vietnam remains one of the cheapest travel destinations in Asia, with direct budget flights from Australia. Vietnamese food alone plays a key role in attracting tourists to visit. Travelers can expect to pay less than $2 for a beer or coffee, or a bowl of pho, and $50 for a decent hotel and $170 for an upmarket one.

Vietnam has a lot of reasons to be worth a visit besides food, Traveler said, listing "the transformations and heady vibes of an emerging economy, incense-laden temples, lakeside old towns, lush highlands and mushrooming beach resorts."

The newspaper suggests travelers visit places such as the tropical island of Phu Quoc for honeymoons or the up-and-coming new resort destination of Quy Nhon in central Vietnam. Other places the newspaper said were worth visiting are the former colonial hill town of Dalat and the eco-destination of Dien Bien Phu.

The Mekong River is a travel highway most easily navigated on a luxury river cruise, which also takes in Cambodia; you'll pay around $400 a person a day.

The best-value destinations list also includes Albania, Argentina, Bulgaria, Cuba, Egypt, Fiji, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand and Turkey.
