“The hectic streets of Hanoi can be intimidating, but one of the worst things you can do when crossing the street is stand still. Keep moving at a steady pace, and you’ll find that the traffic will work its way around you.”

“Enlist the help of a hired driver or taxi – even experienced drivers may find manoeuvring their way through Vietnam’s frantic streets and narrow country lanes daunting. Drivers will know the fastest and safest routes, allowing you to sit back and take in the sights.”

“Coffee-lovers should try Hanoi’s egg coffee. Consisting of a thick layer of foamy egg white atop a strong Vietnamese coffee, the combination of both bitter and sweet flavours is a city-wide favourite. It can be enjoyed hot or cold, and the latter is more of a creamy desert mousse. Exquisite.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the weather like in Vietnam?

As Vietnam sits in both a temperate and a tropical zone, the weather varies and is entirely dependent on region.

  • The north of Vietnam is monsoonal, and experiences its humid, rainy season between April to September, and its cooler, dry season around October to March. 
  • Central Vietnam enjoys hot and dry weather from late January to August, with the majority of rainfall occurring between October to November. Depending on where you’re situated in Central Vietnam, the weather can vary greatly on a daily basis.
  • Southern Vietnam has the simplest and most distinct weather patterns of the country, experiencing just two seasons – wet and dry. The wet season tends to last between late May to November, while the dry season begins mid-November to April.

What's the currency of Vietnam?

The official currency of Vietnam is the Vietnamese dong. The American dollar is accepted in a number of hotels and resorts, but you should expect to pay in dong for the majority of purchases during your stay.

What are some good examples of Vietnamese street food?

  • Available at all hours, you’re bound to stumble across a roadside Pho stand on your travels here, serving up a salty broth of rice noodles, fresh herbs and spices, topped with your choice of chicken or beef. 
  • Xoi, often referred to as sticky rice, is a savoury staple of Vietnam, and depending on the location and chef, this dish can be served alongside an almost limitless amount of accompaniments, but usually includes either fried eggs, pork or chicken.
  • Hanoi’s wildly popular and fiery bun bon nam bo dish usually consists of vermicelli noodles, slivers of beef, an assortment of fresh herbs, chili peppers and shallots, with a light drizzling of fish sauce.
