Vietnam is known for having beautiful places, lovely people, fine architectures, aboundant farms and ofcourse for their historical events that made a great impact to their lifestyle. It is indeed a good tourist spot for those who are seeking an amazing preserved culture and peaceful productive environment. To truly appreciate the beauty that this country possessed, one must travel it personally and explore the real thing rather than relying on the things seen on books, TV and other medias.
Before going there, you must already settle your mind in choosing the kind of transportation you will use when travelling around. There are private and public transportation in Vietnam. But if you would like to spend less while taking home lots of precious memories from the country, I suggest you avail their Open Bus. This kind of transportation is way more cheaper than the others. This is commonly used by most people living in there. But saving money is not alone the advantage in here, you also get along with Vietnamese people which is a big plus for your travel experience.
Open busess have large and comfortable seats. This will make you feel more comfortable while on the ride. They don’t have strict rules about the kind or the size of baggages you have as long as you can carry it with you along the trip. No rules about the food or drinks you will be bringing too, isn’t it cool? All they want is for your to enjoy your travelling experience!

Open Bus Travel Tips
1.) Know your destination
First thing, you must know where you will start and where you will end up. As a foreign traveller, a map or any guide is the most basic and the most important thing we MUST have. You can search on the internet or bring a travel book with you that can explain the Vietnam’s travel ways and locations. But some may bring a tourist guide with them to explain the things, places and even discuss the history of what they witnessed along the way. Which is also a great help.
2.) Booking ways
You can either book early online or book directly in the bus terminal. Some people who book their trip online are not mostly prioritized. If you have decided your destination already, be familiarize with the route so you can personally go to the terminals and book your trip there. It is much more accurate and easy.
3.) Place your bags in the right place.
Always make sure to settle your bags in the most proper and reachable way that won’t cause distractions to the other travellers. You can also ask the driver the right and appropriate place to place your bags. Be mindful about the fragile things, the things that will likely to get wet easily such as papers, and the things that will cause you heartache if misplaced. Try to separate those heavy things from light and fragile ones. Make sure you remember the places where you put all your stuff to avoid getting confused which is which.
As a traveller, you know what are the things that you need to bring and what are those unnecessary too. Your baggage must not be a disturbance for you to enjoy your travel. So bring only the most important. You must look like a wise backpacker!
4.) Make your travel safe and sound.
You are a smart traveller and as well as a normal human being. You might have imagined yourself in a fulfilling travel, but some things may happened as what you have expected. So bring your medicines, your personal kit and as well as extra money. And also be careful with everything, including your self. We never know what lies ahead. I’m not saying this to make you feel worry, but this is for you to feel safe along the way.
Lastly, enjoy your travel! Take pictures and bring home the best memories with you!
