The Hanoitimes - On the World Tourism Day (September 27), Cutacut decided to make a list of budget-friendly destinations you can travel to without drilling a hole through your pocket.
Vietnam has been ranked sixth among the seven budget-destinations to travel to before you turn 30, according to a list released by Cutacut, a digital content company.
If you speak to anyone who is an avid traveler, they’ll tell this: traveling is for the soul, what eating is for the body. “Again, Vietnam is a good option to tie-in on your trip to Thailand without turning you finances upside down,” Cuttacut wrote.
Sri Lanka tops the list, followed by Thailand, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia.
Earlier, Vietnam has been ranked 13th among the 20 best places to visit in October, according to a list released by Condé Nast Traveller, a UK travel magazine.
“October is the beginning of dry season in Vietnam’s north and south, where monumental natural spectacles and buzzing city scenes both abound. Up top, hill station Sapa is the gateway to misty treks, Hanoi is all chaos, condensed-milk coffees on low plastic stools and some of the best food you’ll ever taste,” Condé Nast Traveller wrote.
In addition, the Mekong Delta is a whole world bobbing on canals and streams, and Ho Chi Minh City is where the bohos go, don’t miss The Café Apartment, a nine-storey block stuffed with fairy-lit mini-boutiques and craft coffee stores.
Vietnam welcomed some 11.616 million foreign visitors in the first nine months of 2018, an 22.9% increase from the same period last year, the General Statistics Office (GSO) has said in a monthly report.
Arrivals by air, road, and sea in the reviewed period recorded annual increases of 17.4%, 62.1%, and 0.5%, respectively, while growth was also seen in the numbers of visitors from all five continents.
