"Going to a touristy place in..." Vietnam Tourist Trap Tip by GenkiMac

Vietnam Tourist Traps: 103 reviews and 56 photos

Going to a touristy place in low season may not always be a good idea. Me and my friend were in Nga Trang in December/January and being winter the place was quieter than we had expected. This caused a problem in that there were less touists and per head of tourist more merchants! We were bugged for blocks and blocks by men with rickshaws when all we wanted to do was walk and by boys evtering the cafe we were chilling out in attempting to sell us paintings. Choose the lesser of the 2 evils carefully! Tourists or Merchants???????

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
