Solo travel experience

Did a month in southern Vietnam solo. Loved it, and had no issues at all. Loved Hue (especially the citadel and tombs of kings and then the city itself), Dalat (so cool, great motorcycle tours around there into the central highlands), Ho Chi Minh City (busy but cool, and Mekong delta tour was fun) and Hoi An was my favorite place.

Solo travel experience

I stayed in Vietnam for a month and it was amazing! I suggest everyone should go there. I felt safe and secure the whole time. I traveled alone and I'm really proud of myself.

Solo travel experience

Vietnam was my first trip abroad and I was alone. It was fantastic. It’s very safe there, and inexpensive. I’ve been back 4 times since. I’ve been to several other countries but Vietnam is still my favorite.
