Looking for the no.1 backpacking destination for 2017? Vietnam has everything you could dream of and more: beautiful beaches, UNESCO-listed national parks, vibrant cities, amazing food and some of the largest caves in the world.
It’s also incredibly easy to travel around by bus, motorbike and train. There are plenty of hostels and guesthouses, with dorms charging as little as $5USD per night.
Beer is ridiculously cheap and street food is some of the best in the world. Think banh mi, beef pho and spring rolls by the bucket load.
