We spent a total of 18 days in Vietnam. We were seriously looking forward to this leg of the trip, as it was previously one of our favorite countries in the world. We’ve changed our minds.
Okay, that is a little dramatic. We really did enjoy most of our time here. It completely paled in comparison to our 12-day trip that we took last year though. This is because last year we were vacationing, and money wasn’t a really problem. Last year we took one of the most expensive cruises through Bai Tu Long Bay (still cheap by American standards though). We signed up for street food tours that were $30. Each. It wasn’t a big deal then because we were on vacation.
