Ideal for travelers on a tight budget, Vietnam’s capital city is one of the cheapest destinations for backpackers. “Not only is accommodation and food reamarkably affordable, but you’ll be spoiled for choice of things to see and do in the city, which has a mix of Southeast Asian, Chinese and French influences,” Helle magazine wrote.
Hoan Kiem Lake, Hai Ba Trung Temple and Hoa Lo Prison Museum are just three of the popular attractions, while backpackers often spend their evenings gathered at Bia Hoi (draft beer) bars across Hanoi, where you’ll find the cheapest beer in the world, the magazine added.
Tourist attractions in the capital city also include the Thang Long Imperial Citadel, the Huong Son relic site, the Temple of Literature and the Culture-Tourism Village of Vietnamese Ethnic Groups.
