According to the World Bank, Vietnam is one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia, with GDP expected to reach 7.2% this year.
It’s this and a number of other factors that have helped keep inflation low and the cost of living cheaper in Vietnam than in Australia, Escape writes.
Visitors can choose services with better prices when traveling to Vietnam.
Drinking beer in Hanoi has become more popular with tourists when former US President Barack Obama and the late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain both ate bun cha while drinking beer in the Old Quarter in 2016.
Not only tourists but also locals like to drink beer. The price for this beer is quite cheap. Even a pint of craft beer from famous breweries costs only 4-5 AUD (about 65,000-82,000 VND) in HCMC.
This newspaper noted that the coffee drinking culture in Vietnam is similar to other famous cities for this drink, such as Melbourne (Australia) or Milan (Italy).

A regular iced milk coffee costs AUD 1.6 (about VND 26,000). Hanoi’s famous egg coffee costs only 2-3 AUD (about 33,000-50,000 VND).
For the same price, visitors in HCMC can also experience other unique coffee flavors.
Many airlines have direct flights from Australia to Vietnam. This helps visitors save some of the money and time. Not only that, but domestic flights are also reasonably priced.
Traveling by technology car companies is very popular in Vietnam, especially motorcycles. A trip through Hanoi’s Old Quarter costs only 2-3 AUD (about 33,000-50,000 VND). This price is considered surprisingly cheap by Escape.
Pho and banh mi, famous Vietnamese dishes, are also reasonably priced. Besides, the shops are everywhere, it is not too difficult for visitors to find a satisfactory address.

A delicious bowl of pho costs around AUD 2.5 (over 40,000 VND). The price of a loaf of bread ranges from 1-1.5 AUD (about 16,000-25,000 VND).
If you plan to visit Vietnam in March-April next year, an overnight stay in a 5-star hotel in the Old Quarter will cost 160 AUD (over 2,000,000 VND) including breakfast.
Visitors can also choose mid-range hotels in this area for AUD 29/night (over 400,000 VND).
Your trip to Southeast Asian countries is not complete without spending time relaxing with services such as facials, manicures or massages.
For 70 AUD (almost 1.2 million VND) you can relax in a prestigious spa. Guests can enjoy a 2-hour herbal foot bath, manicure and pedicure, facials, massages and sauna.
