Vietnam is next on my list! There’s something about the Asian culture and way of life that I always found intriguing. I just came back from Bali – which felt like heaven after a couple of rough years – and now I’m planning next year’s trip to Hanoi. Fingers crossed the pandemic doesn’t mess it up all over again…
If you had the chance to spend a whole month in Vietnam would you make your own itinerary or use guides? We’ll be traveling as a group so I’m guessing if we use our common sense safety won’t be an issue.
