How to travel Vietnam on $10 a day. Learn how to travel Vietnam on a budget. Vietnam is one of the best countries in Asia to travel cheaply, and this is how you do it with almost no money. We travel around Vietnam eating food, staying in hostels (AND HOTELS), going on tours, and more...Of course, occasionally you will have to spend more to go on a tour, but you make up for it on other days when you'll spend much less than your allotted $10. Lets go to Vietnam and see how we can stretch our dollar and stay longer. Please subscribe to see more videos on how to travel Southeast Asia and beyond.

You can try Bangladesh. I think you will not find cheaper than Bangladesh.
Ashik Zaman (6 days ago)
@Alexander Travelbum you need to bergain here as well regarding the prices. you can go to cox's bazar and saint martin island, saint martin is awsome. you can explore bandarban... hill tracking and water falls are great there, can explore sylhet and sundarbans, these all contains natural beauty. few historicals sites are available here as well. you can write me as well when you will be here, i am from bangladesh. one more thing, regarding alchohol these place is a little bit strict.. best of luck.

The cheapest accomodations i had, were in Nepalese Himalaya. Most of the Time we‘ve got a room for two for about a Dollar a Night. But mostly without warm water and sometimes even without water at all. So yeah a Little bit strange but definetly an adventure:D
Alexander Travelbum (25 days ago)
I really am going to make that happen. Thanks!
Daniel Neumeister (27 days ago)
Alexander Travelbum i can highly recommend it, it was an breathtaking experience! We‘ve done the annapurna circuit and its amazing.

Seriously?! The idea of buying 25 cents beer outside and brought it into the bar/pub where you could enjoy music and the atmosphere is such a shame for you! It's true that we are all happy to enjoy good things cheap prices, but do not giving these kind of advices that you can taking advantages of people please! 3$-4$ for a beer in a bar is not even call expensive for you western people.

You need a visa to go to vietnam? I have a passport is that all I need?
Max Vandeven (2 months ago)
You need a visa, do it on time because It can take long before it is accepted. Costs about €25. Online it is the fastest usually. Some countries dont need a visa

hey! what bus companies did you catch rides from/ how did you go about finding them? im currently planning a bit for my trip to Vietnam and any websites for buses or trains average about 40$ which just seems way to high. LOVE your videos btw :)
Kenzzo Phạm (4 months ago)
In 2017,i took a sleeping bus from HaNoi to SaPa was 230.000~10USD,as i still remember ,The name is Hải Hà-Hải Vân bus company ,can check it out on google,normally,just give them a call to check the price and seat available few hours before or in the last minutes than let them known where i am for them to pick me up.when i finnished to travel SaPa ,i wanted to go to Cat Ba island-Hai Phong .there are 3 incredible beaches there. I called a sleeping bus to arrange again,they picked me up at Sapa market at 10.30pm than heading to Hai Phong , i slept on that bus well,i paid 220.000VND~ least than 10usd.when the bus arriving HaiPhong, the bus driver woke me up to ask me and droped me where i wanted.than i took a express boat to forward Catba Island at 7am .good experiences.when finished CatBa island,i took a furry to go to HaLong bay at 9am,only 1 route per day at 9am every day. I paid 70.000VND~3USD. Omg 😱😱😱 it was very very amazing scenery during the time when i stepped up on the top of furry for looking scenery around there. Love that feeling.
Jadie (6 months ago)
Alex Travelbum alright that’s kinda what I thought! thanks for responding man! 💛
Alexander Travelbum (6 months ago)
Just get them when you’re there! They are sold at hostels, hotels, small shops, really everywhere. Booking ahead online might cost you more because only tourists do that. If you buy when there then you might get local price or close to it. Thanks for watching!
Gerrylynn Mako (6 months ago)
I like Asia better than Latin American because the service and people are generally better. The food as well. Atleast in Asia they attempt to communicate with you and realize their job is predicated on good service to tourists. Latin America doesn’t give shit about that it’s like they can’t make the connection between good service and making more money. Really sad l.

Hello I from vietnam, Vietnam so Bad :)
selinarminé becky (6 months ago)
cheapest for me was Egypt by a landslide, I once bought 3 falafel sandwiches and a coke for 50cents. In another town I found a man selling containers of kosherie and rice-pudding for 50 cents a pop, two of those and you're set for the day!
Fouad Adel (24 days ago)
As an Egyptian, I would say Indonesia felt way cheaper than Egypt, but my opinion my be bias since I don't really live in Egypt on budget, but yea generally Egypt is definitely quite cheap.
selinarminé becky (6 months ago)
@Alexander Travelbum amazing value for your money if you aren't being scammed (kinda happens a lot unfortunately) also found 1-2eur accommodation in places

Can’t wait to go to Egypt. Soon
Vani Diaz (6 months ago)
Hai Alex Thanks for your video of budget tips at Vietnam. U said that u just take $25 at Halong Bay. How can? coz when I'm searching it, it's expensive. Can you give me an information? Thanks. 😊
Vani Diaz (6 months ago)
@Alexander Travelbum Ok. Thanks for your tips. how about transportation at there?
Alexander Travelbum (6 months ago)
Hey, if you don’t book ahead, you can book once you arrive. Do it through your hotel or hostel, or find a place offering it. It costs more to do it ahead online or from another city before arriving

You can booking at any hotel with that price,just ask them. normally,almost the tour company will colect customers from these hotel as agency, it is a 5 hours tour on a boat to travel around Halong bay and visit some amazing caves.

James Harken (23 days ago)
Yeah go through 12asiago
Alexander Travelbum (9 months ago)
I believe you can, but I would book them at stores all over, easily found in main cities offering bus tickets. And to make it easy, it is possible to book at your hostel or hotel, or ask where to go to get them

Mathieu Tallard (10 months ago)
The cheapest and the most beautiful country i went to is the cheapest and most beautiful country on the planet but because i got attack and robbed, it was also the most expensive but i got the live like a rock star for a few weeks before the event. Yes, i'm talking about Venezuela, the year air lines stopped landing there. Too bad it's so dangerous. I don't know how you can tell people how to travel a country for really cheap went it's you first time there yourself. I don't get it. Also, as a Canadian, what will happen if i present myself on a road border without visa? They should sell me one, not turning me back ? Can i get one in Cambodia for Vietnam ? Should i skip Thailand because it's a saturated country and many say it's now over price and also skip Cambodia because it's poor on nice beaches and just go to Vietnam ? I travel with home made scooter, i'm never on foot and can easily be outside beaten tracks anywhere. I love deserted beaches because all over tanning is the only way for me and of course, i am not a monk and like also fun with girls. I have three months. Of course, if i find paradise, i will spend the 3 months there instead of traveling all over those countries. Nice deserted beach, a cheap hotel and a few girls to take good care of me. i stay there !! Why looking elsewhere. What is the country between Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam i have the most chances to find my paradise? Thanks

I never hear much about the Vietnamese train system, did you use it at all on your travels?
Umbrex (8 months ago)
if u go for the sleeper cabin and dont get the top bunks it's pretty great ..coach and top bunks are pretty bad. Imo the sleeper busses are better for some reason
Tom Hogan (10 months ago)
@Alexander Travelbum no sorry I do actually mean train as in railway, supposedly there's a sleeper train from Saigon to Hanoi with numerous stops along the way
Alexander Travelbum (10 months ago)
The busses you mean? I used them a lot and they were very good. I like how they have individual seats sleeper style so you can be comfortable and have your own space

All around, Vietnam might have been cheapest. Other countries are cheap but not in every aspect. Indonesia can be very cheap, but not always to travel since there are many islands

Alexander Travelbum I haven’t been to Mexico City but I’m sure thatd be a great start. I was in a smaller town where a friend of mine lives. But I’ve also been to Cancun and if you can get past the touristy aspect of it, it’s got some incredible sights like chichen itza or all the crazy cool cenotes
Alexander Travelbum (1 year ago)
Awesome, I really want to travel Mexico more. Any suggestions? I want to make a trip soon and have no idea where to start other than Mexico City
