I lived in thongs and sandals on both trips to Vietnam - in fact wear them all the time when I am travelling. Just be careful if you are in hook-worm areas (the NT is full of them too), if you have open wounds you are more likely to get bugs and worms....

Aussie dollars are OK, you can change them but it is so much easier to have $US when paying for things and giving tips. You'll probably use Vietnam Dong for most things though.

Re: footwear in vietnam

by IdreamIam

US or Aus dollars, this seems to be a recurring question with Australian travellers to Vietnam, you do not need to take US Dollars to Vietnam, you can change your Aus $'s at various reputable places includiing banks for a very good exchange rate, you will also find Australian Banks in Saigon. If you are travelling by car for a few days and might not be in a large city where it might be hard to find an Automatic Teller or a good monechanger make sure you are prepared with enough cash. So remember you can take Dong from your account at Cash tellers exactly as you do in Australia except you can get it out in Dong. Believe me you do not have any worries and it really is simple. Just remember take normal precautions as you would in Australia.

If you only go to Hanoi, then thongs are fine.
Though i will recommend to bring shoes and buy sandals/flip flop here. they are cheap.

I was in Hanoi last week , many tourists are wearing sandals or thongs but be sure to have a pair STOUT sandals or shoes if going out into the Lakes or villages.
Many shops quote prices on USDollars and prefer them to dong. Quite anumber of clothing and jewelry shops decline credit cards and prefer you to go to ATM first , or they will expect you to pay the 2-3% surcharge for using a card.

,Your choice of footwear ,should come down to what your compfortable with,and how much walking or relaxing you intend to do.Its all ok ,dont over pack ,buy stuff here its cheap and a good reminder of your holiday.I dont cary aussie dollars, you can use atm,s here saves carrying larege amounts of cash,its a 5 dollar transaction fee though,but with i think is agri bank you can take out 5million dong at a time ,alsowhat has served me well ,if you carry alot of cash at a time ,keep the bulk hidden and a couple hundred dong loose, so when you have to pay for something ,they dont see large wads,and jack up the price.

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Yummy Street Foods - Banh Cuon Nong

by myspices

Yummy is the word - we had this street food dish a couple times. It is made of glutinous rice flour mixed into a batter. The batter is then spread on hot plate to form a sort of a "crepe". Chopped preserved radish is then placed on the "skin" or "crepe" and rolled up. Served with fried onions as toppings. It's something like the Hongkong "Chee Cheong Fun". How to eat it ?? Dip the pieces of Banh Cuon Nong into a bowl of sauce provided. Sauce is sweet and sourish - a very nice blend. Price : about 6,000 to 7,000 dongs a plate. Cheap nice food which are authentic in taste.

Damn, that's cold today!

by King_Golo

When in Hanoi in wintertime, especially in January and February, be sure to bring a warm coat and a warm pullover. Although it's located somehow southish, Hanoi gets pretty cold in winter. Temperatures range from 8-15°celsius, i.e. 47-59°fahrenheit. In addition to that, it's very likely to rain - the Vietnamese call this kind of rain "raindust" as it is so fine that you hardly feel it. Remember, that there are almost no heaters anywhere - 10° outside more or less equals 10° inside!

"One night five times"

by bpacker about Highway 4

How many times have you been to a night joint and drank one of those nasty concoctions with a stupid umbrella? Well, you won't have to worry about this if you're here. Despite bearing the notorious reputation of being the Minsk ( russian bike) HQ, this place is a good joint to try really good Vietnamese wine... Of course, before you order anything, take a look at Highway 4's menu and have a good laugh. You'll find really rib-tickling monikers such as "One night five times" and "Sanh Dieu (Sex Machine) . Hmm, those were definitely potent Vietnamese Viagra! After hubby finished laughing, we ordered a tamer sampler of honey-egg wine, raspberry, aniseed and scent of 500 flowers. All gauranteed to warm us up on a cold winter's night.

Cyclo Ride

by Arjaree

Eventhough I mentioned in the warning section that I got cheated by a tricky cyclo guy, I still encourage you to take a ride around the town. Some will offer you a trip around the town for 15-30 mins. We paid about 40.000 Dong. Anyway, you can practice your bargaining skill.
