I. Vietnamese Street Food Culture

Street food in Vietnam is not simply a list of Vietnamese traditional dishes sold on streets, it also expresses a part of the beauty of Vietnamese people’s culture, lifestyle, feelings, thought. Moreover, it is a combination of Vietnamese traditional culture and other nations’ cultures which dominated Vietnam in history especially China.

Throughout more than 4000-year history with many ups and downs, Vietnamese culture, in general, and cuisine, in particular, were affected so strongly by Chinese culture that people have no difficulty in finding some Vietnamese street food quite similar to Chinese food such as baozi, noodles, and so on.

There are many reasons for tourists to discover and get addicted to street food in Vietnam. However, the mass agree that there are four main reasons to keep their feet, including the taste of street food, the cheap price, the authenticity and freshness of ingredients, and the local way to enjoy street food.

1. The taste of street food: It is completely delicious

Most street food in Vietnam is said to have an unforgettable delicious taste by tourists. Each dish all has its perfect recipe that has been tweaked for many generations before reaching perfection. Besides, there may be some differences in the taste of the same dish between regions in Vietnam such as street food dishes in the south and south-central are sweeter than other regions while in the north and north-central they are saltier and spicier. However, all of them will make a great impression on visitors right from the first time.

2. Cheap price

It is considerably cheap. Normally, it takes you only about 1 2 dollars to enjoy a street food dish and no more than 25 dollars to get full. And, you will be surprised when you see a decent portion of street food such as Bun Bo Hue (Hue beef noodle), Bun Cha, Banh Cuon (rolled rice pancake) and so on. It is full of noodles, meat, herb, and tasty soup that are believed to have higher prices at only 1 3 dollars depending on stalls.

3. The authenticity and freshness of ingredients 4. How to enjoy street food in Vietnam

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Street food in Vietnam seems to be not as delicious as it is if you don’t enjoy it in a Vietnamese way. For travel-lovers, when coming to any country, you should do the same way as the locals to understand more about the country you are visiting. Most tourists agree that when exploring Vietnam’s street food, you should enjoy it in a local way! People here are friendly, hospitable and willing to share their culture, customs, life and street food is a wonderful place to experience it.

5. Overcoming the fear of street food

The fear of unfamiliar food or street food seems still popular main anxiety even for the most experienced tourists. Therefore, how to overcome the fear of street food is an important problem for any tourist having the intention of experiencing Vietnamese street food cuisine.

Firstly, most of the anxiety comes from the fact that we don’t know exactly what it is and similarly, a large part of the fear of street food when traveling is simply a fear of the unknown. Therefore, you ought to research street foods you are likely to experience on the trip as much as possible. You can search in reliable sources on the Internet such as professional travel bloggers’ youtube because they usually review the experience such as where to go, what to eat and some notes when they visit countries, Lonely Planet, TripAdvisor, BBC New, and so on.

Secondly, try something similar before coming to Vietnam if there are any Vietnamese food stores or restaurants in your city; however, this way is not truly effective because the chiefs tweaked all recipes of almost dishes a little bit to fit with the taste of the locals.

Thirdly, ask as many of your friends who have visited Vietnam before as possible to get an objective look at Vietnam’s street food and which favorite dishes you had better try or avoid on the trip.

III. 20 Favorite Vietnamese Street Food III.1. Best Vietnamese Street Food in Hanoi & Northern Vietnam 1. Bun Cha (Vietnamese Grilled Meat Vermicelli)

Cost: The cost of renting a motorbike in Hue ranges from 185,000 347,000 VND ($8-15)/person. Going on a motorbike tour may cost you approximately 1,500,000 VND ($58).

Pros and cons: The most appealing experience when travelling this way is that you can take short breaks to capture beautiful landscapes. Thus, this journey is extremely risky as it requires great physical strength and mental health to conquer the dangerous Hai Van Pass. You need to possess remarkable driving skills to solve unexpected problems on the road as well. Besides, in comparison with the above ones, travelling by motorbike is costlier and more time-consuming.

4. Travelling from Hue to Hoi An by Taxi/Private Car

Booking: Dichung Taxi is a reliable company specializing in transport service. You can book a transfer service on website chúng tôi and a booking confirmation email with a unique ticket code will be sent to your email address.

Route: The taxi/private car will stop at these locations for soaking up the landscape: Elephant Spring, Cau Hai Lagoon, Lap An lagoon, Lang Co Bay, Hai Van pass and Marble Mountain.

Duration: It will take you about 2-3 hours to get to Hoi An.

Cost: ranging from 1,700,000 2.200,000 VND ($75-95)/car

Pros and cons: This is a perfect idea for safe, comfort and privacy. Another bonus point of moving by taxi/private car is that you can avoid extreme weather on hot summer days or rainy days. The best thing is, you can chill out at several stops, either by taking some photos or savoring yummy seafood along the coast.

However, this method has some minor drawbacks. Firstly, it will be a bit pricey if you are a lone traveller. Secondly, you cannot feel the wind and penetrate into fresh air.

5. Travelling from Hue to Hoi An by Seaplane

Travelling by seaplane is the fastest, but the most expensive way.

Booking: Hai Au Aviation is the name that should cross your mind first when considering travelling by seaplane. You can go on its website at chúng tôi to book a flight from Hue to Hoi An.

Route: It is a straight flight. It will depart at Phu Bai International Airport (Address: Zone 8, Phu Bai Ward, Huong Thuy District, Thua Thien Hue Province) and will be landing at Danang International Airport (Address: Duy Tan Street, Hoa Thuan Tay Ward, Hai Chau District, Danang City).

Duration: Travelling from Hue to Hoi An by seaplane will take you about 40 minutes.

Cost: about 3,500,000 VND ($155)/one-way ticket

Pros and cons: This travelling method is wonderful in its way as you can see breathtaking views from above. The only demerit is that the price is a little bit high.

With these 5 suggestions, we hope that you can make a wise decision on your upcoming Hue Hoi An trip.

Review Wandering West Yen Tu – Bac Giang By Car

Preparation: We buy some food with water first at home and bring it. If I go next time, I will learn from experience to go there to buy because going there is mainly inconvenient to climb mountains. Next is to bring money and the spirit to prepare for climbing. As for the outfit, I should wear soft shoes because it is misty on the mountain and the road is a bit slippery.

Weather: We went to Bac Giang and saw how the two of us prayed to God for Buddha’s prayers, but the weather cleared up. When I got to Yen Tu, it was neither sunny nor raining, cool

Move: In the morning, we grabbed the bus to My Dinh bus station. Out there, there will be a series of car assistants asking where you go. And my job just needs to ask for a car to Bac Giang, then ngta will show the parked car, get in the car and sit upright, trying not to choose the last seat of the squirrel that wants to vomit like I am. (Ticket 60k) we told the driver to return to BigC Bac Giang.

The car will drop you at bigC then you move to the opposite side of bigC waiting for bus 07 to Tay Yen Tu, the ticket price is 55k back to the temple gate. One thing is that waiting for the bus does not need to stand at the right point, so you do not need to go looking for a pick up point. Just stand on the sidewalk and wait for the green 07 car to approach, then wave.

It is nearly 70km from BigC Bac Giang to West Yen Tu, so just get in the car and get some sleep. This road has many big trucks, so you should ride a motorcycle carefully and slowly. The bus will take you to the gate of the pagoda, which is also the end of the turn, so when you return, go to this point to catch the bus back to Bac Giang.

Near the temple gate, we enter the Square inside which has a gallery of art galleries, some antiques and Buddhist documents are also quite interesting. Going for a tour, I went out to buy a tram ticket to go to the lower pagoda above. 10k 1 super cheap round-trip ticket. Up there, we burned incense and took a photo, then walked to the cable car station to get to Yen Tu nearby.

We intend to walk up to Yen Tu in the true sense of pilgrimage. But the truth is not like a dream because the Yen Tu trek from Bac Giang is not like in Quang Ninh. The main road is a fast walking trail that takes about 3 hours and more importantly, we can’t see anyone walk, so with the bravery of the two girls, we also crept, didn’t dare to go, so we took the cable car. The ticket is 260k / 1 round trip ticket, it only takes about 10 minutes to reach the station above. Going there, you should buy sticks to easily climb the mountain, it is dewy and cold to go up, but walking for a while will feel hot so you should just wear thin clothes. A hat is better than wet hair. There are many stops up there selling water and food so don’t worry. On the way to Dong Pagoda, there was also Thuong pagoda, we went to burn incense and then continued to climb a quite long distance.

So that is the end of West Yen Tu. Climb down and take the cable car back to the station. We went downstairs and waited for the car to return to Bac Giang and then back to Hanoi. On bus 07, you just tell your child to get off the bus to take the bus back to Hanoi and they will show you. Luckily, we just got off the bus and got the car without waiting.

For those of you who want to go sightseeing, I think this is a place so you should avoid the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. As for those who mainly go to the Buddha worshiping ceremony, you probably know “Hundred years of accumulating virtuous practice, not yet successful in Yen Tu” so this is a place worth going if you do not have time. We went from HN starting at 5:30, then arrived at 8am.
