Daily Budget for Self Guided Vietnam Tours

by Dwight Z.

How much does it cost to travel in Vietnam?

I travel to Vietnam about once a year – Nov 2016 most recent

Hotels:

Saigon – US$15 a day (5 days) in Pham Ngu Lao area w/ Air conditioning, WiFi worked fine, slept undisturbed.  Desktop was available in lobby.  Any number of cheap hotels are available in alleys off Pham Ngu Lao, Bui Vien and Do Quang Dao in “Backpacker” area in District 1.

Dalat – US$7.50 a night (2 nights) in quiet hotel 3 blocks from Xuan Huong Lake.  Good shower, no A/C needed, restaurants close by.  Wifi included.

HoiAn – US$15 a night (3 nights) on Le Loi Street in heart of  “Old Town”.  Good shower, A/C worked fine, Wifi included w/ desktop in lobby.  Cheaper hotels are available but I like it there.  Thanh Binh Hotel

Meals:

I eat mostly street food (no problems in 15 years) US$1-2, evening meal in restaurant about US$3 -4 with drink.  Pastries are less than a US$1.  The search for the “Ultimate Banana Pancake”, usually a crepe, resulted in an US$3 breakfast.  Omelets about the same.

Transportation:

Cheap – usually “mooched” a ride from a friend.  Flew from DaNang to Saigon on a US$29 special offer from JetStar booked months in advance.  I usually wait until I’m “in-country” to book flights.  Took an “over-night” sleeper bus from Saigon to Dalat for US$11 – I can sleep reasonably well even with the driver honking the horn.

How Cheap Is It? My Daily Budget in Vietnam

Cost per day - Vietnam travel

I spent a day tracking my expenses in the tourist-friendly town of Hue. While my hotel room was unusually cheap, most of the prices were about average for Vietnam. I’m not including the motorcycle rental, since that’s not something that most people would want to do.
