Vietnam Tourist Traps: 103 reviews and 56 photos


-Don't use towel that they put in a plastic bag and keep cool on ice because it will charge on your bill after you eat .It's not free but not expensive either ,around 10 cent/ bag .
-Don't eat the food they already put in the table .It's not free and not include on your meal ,so you eat it ,you have to pay it.
-Don't buy something on street like postcards ,gum ,candy....ect... because the sell-street- people won't leave you alone .They will annoy you until you run way .heeeeheee.
-Don't give money for begged people when they have too many around ,they will annoy you until you give away all the small amount of money .Ignore it or give money only see one begged person who lose one part of body or disable overthere.Your light heard will be use because too many begged people on the street that Vietnamese goverment could not take care of .POOR GOVERMENT and poor system !!!!
