Earlier, News Nation, an Indian newspaper, named Vietnam the number one destination among the top cheapest countries you can visit without having to empty you bank account.
News Nation suggested that the mountain resort of Da Lat in the central highlands is the perfect feast. Untouched and undeveloped Vietnam is a super cheap travel destination, as well as a beautiful country of lush mountain scapes and sweeping white sands.
Other places to visit while in this beautiful country can include Hanoi. The place also retains some of the French food culture where you will find some great patisseries producing croissants. Have a pint of Vietnam’s most popular brew, Bia Hoi and stop over in one of the eccentric fairytale rooms of the Crazy House.
