Not everyone is capable of traveling with extended family or group of friends, so what should you note when traveling alone?
Safety is the most important thing
Travel to Vietnam and travel alone, in general, requires you to determine how much time you need and how much money it will take to go from the airport or bus station to your hotel, to the city center or to a certain location. If you like to take a city tour by car, you should check with the driver about the price. To sum up, you need to pay enough attention to your safety.
Don’t be gullible
One of the most exciting things when you travel to Vietnam alone is being comfortable meeting new people. Howerver, this also brings you the risk of falling into hazardous situations. Hanging out, traveling and making new friends are good but be careful to keep your personal property safe. You should be open but be cautious as well.
Avoid extra surcharge
Independent travelers should be familiar with the extra fees during the trip that are often added to bills. Additional fee may cost about 25% of the total trip, especially high when you travel alone. Sometimes you will have to pay the amount equal to the amount for a companion. To avoid this, you can choose specialized or customized tour package with tour operators and they will arrange you the all-inclusive services.
You should specify the location of the internet shop before starting a travel to Vietnam. For your safety, send a record or a copy of your itinerary to either your family or friends, to help them more easily in checking your regular routine. It would be all the better if you use a roaming cell phone while traveling overseas. Let your family and friends know this number to use in emergent cases.
Just feel the trip!
You should pay a lot attention to your emotional feelings during the trip. If you are tired and somewhat feeling down, don’t hesitate to make a short stop or temporarily delay the schedule, treat your health well and continue on the journey. Sometimes you need to slow down the speed and take back the habit. That would be the most ideal way to enjoy your travel to Vietnam.
