Welcome to Vietnam Backpacker Tips for the backpacker traveling through Vietnam who may need that little helping hand.

I started the Facebook group many moons ago to help backpackers stay away from the scam artists and rip off merchants I had heard about or come across on my backpacking trip through Vietnam back in 2011.

Vietnam Backpacker Tips was also started to allow other Vietnam backpackers who have travelled through Vietnam before, the chance to offer their hints, tips and experiences, good and bad to hopefully give new backpackers the chance of a better traveling experience.

This website will also give you the basics to get started when in Vietnam such as how to get from the airport to the centre of town, or where to buy a SIM card on arrival. We will also help with the currency, which can be daunting for the first time Vietnam backpacker.

We will give you hints and tips about backpacking through the many cities and areas of Vietnam, starting in Hanoi, heading down to Hue and Hoi An and then on to Saigon and the Mekong Delta.

Check out our Facebook group now for some on the spot hints and tips from members about travelling through Vietnam as a backpacker or check through our website here for more details.

Happy travelling guys!
