You’re backpacking around Southeast Asia and you decided to spend a few months in Vietnam. You’ve been researching how much it costs to travel there, but you can’t find an answer! That’s why we wrote this blog post about the cost of traveling in Vietnam. We’ll tell you what it costs for accommodation, food, transportation, as well as other miscellaneous expenses like medical care or entertainment.
The cheapest and most flexible accommodation option in Vietnam is to stay in hostels. Hostels provide a variety of different sleeping options, from bunk beds to private rooms. If you prefer to have your own room, you’ll have to spend more money. Beds at hostels range from VND300,000 ($11.55) to VND450,000 ($21.14), with an average of VND320,000 ($13.97). Some places, like 5Sixty6 in Ho Chi Minh City, can cost up to VND560,000 ($22.47) per night. Also, be careful when choosing accommodation. Many hostels in Vietnam do not have Wi-Fi. Food Food is one of the most expensive things that you’ll have to pay for when you travel in Vietnam.
Food and drinks
For dinner, a hostel-provided meal with unlimited beer or wine will cost you no more than 200,000 VND (about 10 USD). You’ll need to take advantage of these hostels’ dinners.

In the most crowded street in Hanoi (Liên Khúc) you can find dumplings and street food for less than 10 USD. If you’re a coffee lover, you can buy instant coffee for $1. If you’re a more demanding customer, it would cost $2 for a good cappuccino.

Instead, try to get instant noodles or fresh herbs from the street vendors.
