We Love Vietnam’s Sidewalk Culture

Streetside snacks are Vietnamese comfort foods

No matter where you go, we’re sure that Vietnam has the most active sidewalk culture game. We can’t stress enough how much our people love sitting on the sidewalk. It’s an essential part of our daily lives: from the signature sidewalk coffee to piping hot street foods. It should come as no surprise that the main reason why we love Vietnam is the gastronomically pleasing street eats!

We Love Vietnam’s Weather

Blessed with warm weather for a tropical country like Vietnam

As locals, it’s fascinating to us how Vietnam’s weather is so different throughout the country! You have Southern Vietnam with the dry and the rainy seasons. Though the rain is quite annoying, it always stays around 20 – 26 Celsius degrees, which is ideal beach weather.

Meanwhile, in the North, you can enjoy our version of “sweater weather” throughout December – January or catch snow in Sapa if you’re lucky enough. Isn’t it wonderful to experience all kinds of weather, in a single month, without ever leaving the country?

The winding Tham Ma Pass in Ha Giang trails challenge even the most experienced driver

Vietnam is the ultimate spot for travel lovers. We have Son Doong Cave – the world’s largest cave located in Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park – a UNESCO World’s Heritage since 2003. For fans of walking, the Ta Nang – Phan Dung trekking path, which is 55 kilometers long of Vietnam’s most breath-taking sceneries, will challenge any hikers.

Though it would never be Vietnam if we don’t mention our motorbike culture. Navigating through endless flocks of transportation coming from every direction is our daily dose of adventure and a free reflex exercise! That said, it’s always much safer and more enjoyable when having a local drive you around.

You’ll find youngsters dressing in Western apparel clubbing on Saturday night. Then you’ll stumble across sword dance performances on traditional music on Sunday morning. And on Monday, see how the Khmer practice Buddhism in Wat Chantaransay Temple, which locates on one of Ho Chi Minh City’s best street for “nhau” (drinking).

This multicultural atmosphere in Vietnam makes everyone feel like there is always a place for them. No matter who you are, Vietnam will cater.
