- You need to ask clearly about the price before you order anything. It’s the same as eating street food, remember to ask the price before buying it. If you feel that you are paying higher than locals, leave that place and go to another location. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from.

- be care for with the pickpocket, in the public place such as supermarket, walking stress… you should watch out with some bad guys….Petty thefts are a common problem in tourist attractions, so you would want to keep an eye on your luggage while on the streets. The advice here is to never store your money in one pocket. Keep separate sums in different bags so that you can have a backup when one is lost.

- Cross the stress without paying attention: the traffic in Viet Nam always is hot subject to discuss. Not only do travellers but also do people living here. One of the most “freaking-out”
- Experiences Oreigners have in Vietnam must be crossing the street. The traffic here, particularly in big cities, is more than a mess. That’s why it’s difficult and dangerous when you want to pass the street. The best way is to find a walking bridge or tunnel. But when there is none of them, you may kindly ask the locals for a favor. Don’t be shy or embarrassed.
- In Vietnam, people used to chopsticks rather than forks and knives, so if your chopstick skill is minus, it’s better-off asking the host for forks or spoons, or you can bring your own utensils. When not in use, place your chopsticks in the holder. Never stick them vertically in the middle of the rice bowl, which is deemed as offerings for the dead.
