If it's your first-time travel to Vietnam, it is best to hire a travel agency. They will provide you the best services at the most affordable prices according to your budget. However, scams are present in every country, and we would advise you to do proper research before you finalize one. It's better to visit their website online and read other customers reviews. These travel agencies will narrow down the best places you can visit in Vietnam and have an itinerary that you can follow. The service operators are experienced and have complete knowledge about the must-visit places in the country. Many tour operators offer bilingual tour guides, which will be an added advantage for foreign tourists.

Which months should be avoided to travel to Vietnam?
Vietnam is a beautiful country, and you can visit all year round. However, the months of April and May are better to avoid as the weather tends to get very hot and humid. The best months to visit Vietnam would be in Spring (i.e., February to April) and autumn (i.e., August to October).

Is it safe to travel to Vietnam?
Vietnam is an extremely safe country to travel. The police of the country are very efficient and rarely would you hear news regarding tourists being mugged, robbed, killed or assaulted. However, one thing you should beware of while visiting the country is being scammed by charging you an exuberant price or looting you. Instances of pickpocketing are also, and hence it is advised for tourist to have some caution while going out.

What are the must-visit places in Vietnam?

Every person visiting the country has a different list, and hence you should take advice from someone best and local. This is where tour operators come into the picture.
