Viet Nam makes HuffPo list of cheapest tourist destinations

Huffington Post, an American online news aggregator and blog, has named Viet Nam as one of the countries that can be visited for less than US$50 a day.

"Despite a recent spike in popularity, Viet Nam remains an affordable destination. Thanks in part to the favourable exchange rate for the dollar, travelers can easily get by on US$20 a day."

Other top five low-cost destinations include Thailand, Cambodia, India and Nepal.

"The numbers and information used to make the list are average budgets based on statistics. The budget mentioned in the story might not be a good fit for you," wrote the article in the Huffington Post. — VNS
