Good Morning, Vietnam [2017]

Guess who’s back, back again? After a day of recovery from a long 21 hour flight, I am ready to be back on the grind. I’ve already contacted ICC’s Career Services team about a posting that I’m super interested in, but I know that I will need to continue researching for other options as well. Any suggestions or leads that any of you have will be super appreciated! Please just comment below or private message me 🙂

Anyhow, the past week spent in Vietnam was wonderful. With the dollar being so strong in the country right now, I highly recommend making the trip if you have the opportunity to! Given our budget, for most of our meals, Phil and I aimed to eat as the locals do. And since we were fortunate enough to have our housing taken care of by a close friend, between the two of us, we spent about $450 total during the week – that’s about $30 per person per day! Please continue reading below for our day to day trip itinerary and food suggestions.
