Maybe the Americans should have brought baseballs instead of bombs. –Ann E. Burg

Nothing is ever so expensive as what is offered for free. –Viet Thanh Nguyen

I can’t say what made me fall in love with Vietnam – that a woman’s voice can drug you; that everything is so intense. The colors, the taste, even the rain. -Graham Greene

Your problem isn’t that you think too much; your problem is letting everyone know what you’re thinking. –Viet Thanh Nguyen

Vietnam Souvenirs -Books about Vietnam

Vietnam was a country where America was trying to make people stop being communists by dropping things on them from airplanes. -Kurt Vonnegut Jr

Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet. –Thich Nhat Hanh

That’ll put us about a hundred miles due east of Ho Chi Minh City in another five hours.” The name always caught Max off guard. Vietnam’s largest city would always be Saigon to him. –Clive Cussler

A country that has been through as much as Vietnam has to have some crazy music somewhere. -Henry Rollins

Vietnamese food has probably been saved from the mass market because most people never master the sauces and condiments that must be added to the food, at the table, for its glories to become apparent. It’s too much trouble, and a lot of people don’t like asking for help, especially if the interaction involves some linguistic awkwardness. -Tyler Cowen

They say whatever you’re looking for, you will find here. They say you come to Vietnam and you understand a lot in a few minutes, but the rest has got to be lived.

You can hardly remember your name, or what you came to escape from. -Graham Greene

The Vietnamese see their history as an unending series of struggles of resistance to aggression. -Noam Chomsky

I didn’t expect to find much visible trace of the American war in Vietnam. The Vietnamese are too hard-bitten to dwell on it, and they’ve sanded away all but the outcroppings of history – the museums, the memorials. -Evan Osnos

5 Things to Bring to Vietnam

Greece - Crete - Stephanie Luggage

The Lonely Planet Vietnam guidebook for your trip. I used a Kindle version during my time in Vietnam. It’s hard to find guidebooks once you’re actually on the ground.


Backup Charging Bank for your cell phone since you’ll be using it as a camera, GPS, and general travel genie.

A Camera since Vietnam is super photogenic. I use a mix of my Nikon D810 and my  Samsung8 smartphone these days.


A Full-Sized Travel Towel for anyone taking advantage of Vietnam’s beaches (or…hostels…). This is the best travel towel in the world, and you’ll need it if you are staying in hostels or anywhere that requires you to bring your towel.

A Great Day Bag so you can carry what you need with you (like your camera, snacks, water, sunscreen, cash, etc). My current favorite is the Pacsafe Citysafe, which is especially great for Vietnam because it has many anti-theft features designed to deter pickpockets. It also transitions to a night bag more easily and won’t embarrass you if you go to dinner directly after sightseeing all day.

Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance!

Before you leave for Vietnam make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road. I pay for World Nomads, and I happily recommend them. It’s especially important to get travel insurance if you’ll be hanging out in cities like Hanoi where tourists can easily become the targets of pickpockets.


I have been a paying customer of World Nomads for travel insurance for three years, and I happily recommend them.  If you get sick, injured, or have your stuff stolen, you’ll be happy to have the ability to pay for your medical bills or replace what’s stolen or broken.
