Expats in Vietnam
*SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE*
"I was determined to experience as much of Vietnam as possible during my 1 month of travel through the country. My journey started in Ho Chi Minh City in southern Vietnam, and over the course of my 4 weeks there, I slowly worked my way north to Hanoi via buses and trains. Covering a total of 7 destinations, this was definitely one of my busiest months of travel in Southeast Asia, however, I also feel that this pace allowed me to thoroughly experience Vietnam as a whole." -That Backpacker-

Public Transport: Buses, Taxis, UBER and more...
Honestly, with Taxi's and UBER it makes traveling around Vietnam affordable as it is so cheap, to use the bus system with a language barrier, it cold make it such a hassle. There is also bicycle rickshaws and Xe Om (motorbike taxi) available so it is clear that with minimal negotiation skills, you can land yourself cheap transport.

Vietnamese greet each other shaking hands, using both hands. When greeting also a light bow forward with the head is respectful. Woman are more inclined to only bow, without shaking hands.
