The street foods list which you “ must try” in Vietnam is as below:
This is the most popular Vietnamese dish around the world. In Hanoi, where Pho was invented in the early 20th century, French-influenced broth has a rich flavor thanks to well-cooked beef bones and a number of typical spices. Pho in Saigon is richer with a range of hot and sweet spices along with many herbs. There are two main types of Vietnamese Pho: chicken and beef noodle soup. Pho is ubiquitous in cities and you can use it at a sidewalk restaurant or in a fancy restaurant.
Banh My is available throughout the country, but you will find the best Banh My in Saigon. Bread is largely sold on mobile food trucks. The cake has a crunchy, delicious crust with fillings filled with meats, pâté, cucumbers, and many other accompanying vegetables.
You probably already know that banh mi is one of the top favorite breakfast dishes in Vietnam. So, what about other dishes on the delicious breakfast list? Today, you are going to discover one of the most interesting and oldest breakfast dishes in Vietnam: Banh cuon – Vietnamese steamed rice rolls.
Banh cuon sounds pretty easy to make, however, it requires a certain skill to roll a good one. Banh cuon with various fillings and styles came to be. Basically, we can divide the standard serving of Banh cuon into three main parts: the soft rice cover, the sophisticated fillings, and the tasty sauce.
Bánh xèo – also known as crispy Vietnamese pancake, crepe or sizzling cake – is a famous street food which is widely believed to originate from France during its occupation of Vietnam. The word xèo depicts the sizzling sound when pouring the rice batter into the hot skillet.
This “Vietnamese pancake” has a yellow outer layer and is filled with boiled pork strips, shrimp, bean sprouts and spring onion. Though some people might prefer to use chopsticks to directly eat bánh xèo, the best way to enjoy it is by eating with your hands. First, take a piece of bánh xèo and put it on the rice paper. Add fresh vegetables that are always served with the dish (there’re a lot of vegetables to choose, but lettuce, Vietnamese perilla, basil and bean sprouts are the most common) and roll them tightly. With each bite, don’t forget to dip the roll into the sauce.
Being the second-largest coffee producing country in the world is also one of the reasons Vietnam is known. The delicious coffee, especially impressive is milk coffee. Tourists can get acquainted with the habit of drinking coffee every morning of Vietnamese people. And especially, coffee is also indispensable for … street food!
Vietnamese-style coffee is sweet because the strong dark brew’s natural partner is sweetened condensed milk. It probably won’t elicit your interest if you’re among those who think that the only way to drink coffee is to take it black — but wait ’till you try Vietnamese egg coffee.
The Scandinavian region has its own egg coffee although the preparation is very much different. Vietnamese egg coffee is strong black coffee topped with egg yolk and sweetened condensed milk that had been whipped together until thickened. It’s really quite a unique experience, this Vietnamese egg coffee — almost like drinking coffee and custard together.
Bun Bo Nam Bo is a very mouth-watering vermicelli noodle dish served with stir-fried marinated beef, shortly known as stir-fried beef noodles. This popular food item has been introduced well from north to south Vietnam and is best well known in the capital Hanoi.
Literally, Bun Bo Nam Bo means beef noodles of the southern region, but until now there is no certain information about the origin of this dish. Many assumed that this noodle originated from the south of Vietnam, while some others agreed that it came from Hanoi and served in southern style: dry noodle without broth. Whether from north or south, Bun Bo Nam Bo is still a typical Vietnamese noodle dish that was once recommended among the top 10 must-try food in Vietnam by CNN.
Tet mentioned is one of the amazing things in Vietnam. It is Vietnam’s biggest celebration. Each year, employees will have about a week off, many returning home to celebrate the New Year with their relatives and relatives. At Tet, people prepare gifts, buy peach blossom, apricot blossom and together make traditional dishes such as Banh Chung, spring rolls.

Vietnam is one of the biggest beer consuming countries in Southeast Asia.
Not only that, Vietnamese people have the cheapest draft beer in the world – 5,000 dongs a cup. Some hostels and homestays are also free of beer for guests arriving during the golden hour because the price of this drink is too cheap. We are not sure if we can find a cheaper beer.
An interesting thing that caught our attention was the Vietnamese beer-drinking culture. For the most part, when Vietnamese people ask for beer, they will have dinner or order something more like chicken wings, frog legs …
Non La is on the amazing things in Vietnam list. If you walk on the street, you will see Vietnamese women often wearing a unique hat called a conical hat. This is a country located in the tropical monsoon region, so the weather alternates year-round. Therefore, Vietnamese people created leaf cones, initially to facilitate farmers to work in the fields. Traditional pyramid hats are still used today and become attractive to foreign visitors.
Vietnam is an agricultural country. If you want to explore Vietnam in real, this is the best thing you must try.

Sapa is oriented to make the most of the spectacular views emerging on clear days; it overlooks a plunging valley, with mountains towering above on all sides. Views are often subdued by thick mist rolling across the peaks, but even when it’s cloudy, local hill-tribe people fill the town with color.
If you were expecting a quaint alpine town, recalibrate your expectations. Modern tourism development has mushroomed haphazardly. Thanks to rarely enforced building height restrictions, Sapa’s skyline is continually thrusting upwards.
But you’re not here to hang out in town. This is northern Vietnam’s premier trekking base, from where hikers launch themselves into a surrounding countryside of cascading rice terraces and tiny hill-tribe villages that seem a world apart. Once you’ve stepped out into the lush fields, you’ll understand the Sapa area’s real charm.
Instead of crowding with tourists in Sapa, come to Ha Giang. Nothing beats the thrill of driving along a narrow road and passing spectacular slopes and valleys. Ha Giang’s identity stems from a well-preserved tribal culture, fortunately not broken by modern development.
Every moment is deserved to enjoy. The scene is marvelous and the people here are super friendly. They are honest and open minds.
I don’t overstate but most of the clients, when visited Hagiang, want to come back or recommend their friends.
Tam Coc is one of the places appearing in the movie “Skull Island”. It is so peaceful and romantic to sit on a small boat floating on the river meandering through the peaceful rice fields and enjoy the sound of water tapping on the sides of the boat.
One of recommending things which you should try when you come to Tam Coc is that joining farming and catching fish. You will have a chance to understand the traditional Vietnamese style such as catching fish, cooking, biking, and rowing
Halong Bay is a beautiful natural wonder in northern Vietnam near the Chinese border. The Bay is dotted with 1,600 limestone islands and islets and covers an area of over 1,500 sqkm. This extraordinary area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. For many tourists, this place is like something right out of a movie. The fact is that Halong Bay features a wide range of biodiversity, while the surrealistic scenery has indeed featured in endless movies.
The best way to get to Halong City is by car, minibus or bus from Hanoi which is only 170km away. If budget is not a problem, an hour-long helicopter transfer is also available.
The beauty of Hoi An goes beyond its nickname, Venice of Vietnam. Every moment in this city paints a brilliant picture of Vietnamese culture. From early morning, when locals start trading until the late afternoon when tourists come to the river to drink water and watch the sunset, or in the evening the colorful lanterns make the city glow. more brilliant … It all passed slowly, smoothly.
The Cu Chi Tunnels are part of a massive war museum in Ho Chi Minh. They offer visitors a sneak-peek at the underground life of Vietnamese soldiers back in 1948. The site has over 120km of underground tunnels, with trapdoors, living areas, kitchens, storage facilities, armory, hospitals, and command centers. After the war against the French, Vietnamese soldiers expanded the tunnels and included effective air filtration systems, which helped them survive the Chu Chi carpet-bombings
The biggest floating market in the Mekong Delta, Cai Rang is just 6km from Can Tho in the direction of Soc Trang. There is a bridge here that serves as a great vantage point for photography. The market is best around 6 am to 7 am, and it’s well worth getting there early to beat the boatloads of tourists and the heat. This is a wholesale market, so look at what’s tied to the long pole above the boat to figure out what they’re selling to smaller traders.
Cai Rang can be seen from the road, but getting there is far more interesting by boat (US$10 to US$15). From the market area in Can Tho, it takes about 45 minutes by the river, or you can drive to the Cau Dau Sau boat landing (by the Dau Sau Bridge), skipping the least interesting section of the river, from where it takes only about 10 minutes to reach the market.
If you wonder how to get there smoothly, let Go Vietnam Travel help you
Comprised of dense green rice paddies and lazy, winding rivers, the Mekong Delta is like no other region in Vietnam. Whether firmly on land or floating with the river current, this region is flush with wildlife, historical sights, and incredible landscapes. The River of Nine Dragons, as locals know the area, is where the Mekong splinters into nine separate branches, crisscrossing low landscapes before reaching the sea. Life moves much more slowly here and is often surrounded by water. You’ll find even homes, farms, and markets take on an aquatic adaptation in the Mekong Delta.
