The most concerning issue for foreign travelers when visiting Vietnam is to find famous destinations for their beaches such as Phu Quoc and Phan Thiet.... There are some tourist destinations in the northwest of Vietnam where the hotel system is not very well-developed.
When making a trip to these areas, for example, to visit ethnic minority
villages, you should consider the possibility of staying in local

price factor, you can also compare the facilities and locations of
hotels to pick out the one that best meets your needs.
If you choose a
website that focused in hotels in Vietnam only (also Vietnam-based), it
may come with other travel services essential for foreign tourists
(such as Vietnam visa, airport transfer and tours) as well as useful
travel guides and tips. With the advantage of being local, they might
give you a better insight on what you need and provide you with better
support once you are in Vietnam. Above is a brief overview of
accommodation in Vietnam and the choices available for foreign tourists.
