Vietnam named among cheapest holiday spots
The Australia-based travel website News has named Vietnam among the world’s cheapest holiday destinations.
“Buzzing street life, great food and stunning scenery; despite its rise in popularity over the last few years, Vietnam is still beautiful and it’s still super-cheap,” the news said.
With an average of USD10, travellers can cover basic guest-house accommodation, local food, transport and the odd beer.
According to the website, Cua Dai Beach is the cheapest beach destination, not just in Vietnam, but in the entire world.
The travel website TravelBird’s calculation showed Cua Dai came out on top on the 2016 Beach Price Index through the cost of spending a day at the beach at 250 coastlines around the world, looking at the average cost of sunscreen, water, beer, ice cream, and lunch.
Earlier, in August, the UK-based travel website Rough Guides listed Vietnam among the world’s top twenty cheapest destinations; the country also ranked sixth among the ten cheapest countries to visit in 2016 according to a poll by The Richest, a US magazine in July.
Other countries ranked on the website’s top wallet-friendly destinations are India, Bolivia, Cambodia, Bulgaria, Albania, and Laos./.
