Surviving the First Week during your Vietnam travel

Vietnam is a wonderful nation with a lot of chances for local as well as foreign expats. The absence of expert skill in specialty fields, for example, publicizing, advertising, finances (CPAs), and so forth opens door for nonnative professionals who can undoubtedly fill the vacant job posts. Even ordinary jobs like working as an English and/or French tutor are enough to open huge job opportunities to Westerners.

However, just like in other growing nations, life in Vietnam could be hard to conform particularly to people who are already fully acclimated to the Western lifestyle with all its comfort. Here’s my two pennies worth advice on the most proficient method to survive the first week in Hanoi- the nation’s capital and the spots where most individuals generally visit. Yes, the first week, in light of the fact that that is the point at which the stun is generally serious!

The climate and Atmosphere:

The climate in Vietnam is hot and humid. While the south has a predictable temperature (hot all year round), as you move north, the temperature can change from great hotness to compelling frosty (amid the downpours). The best thing to do is to drink a lot of water, particularly in the event that you are from Scandinavian nations like Denmark, Norway, and so on. At least 2 liters of water will help you to slowly adjust to hotness and not get dehydrated as fast..

Remember to check the color of your urine; if you notice it is considerably dark take it as an indicator that your body needs water, and on the other hand if it is excessively clear, most probably you are drinking excess water in short intervals. Adding a pinch of salt to the water can keep you hydrated for a more extended period.

Get to experience Transport industry in Vietnam:

Bikes are a famous mode of transport here. Don’t be amazed when a whole group of four (once in a while even five) cycles on a solitary bicycle. Taxis are less expensive; however, drivers can entice you with expanded rates. Be sure to confirm with the actual price for renting the bikes from the locals so you can pay only the exact money for it else you get tricked and overcharged. Alternatively, you may go for the bike hire service but only if you can manage to navigate through the tight traffic on roads and pathways.

Foods and Nourishment:

Foods and fruits are available in plenty here and you will be overwhelmed by the varieties you find here. Noodles particularly Pho is extremely famous in the north and doesn’t cost much. An ordinary lunch would incorporate rice with meat, a lot of veggies, soup, fresh fruits, and a treat and would cost you around $3 to $4. You can even sample out some street foods. However, there are chances you may need to adapt to some tummy inconvenience. Individuals in Vietnam like to cook at home, and on average most residential household units are located at proximate distance to some food marketplace.

With these simple tips on how to survive your first week during your Vietnam travel, you are better informed on how to brace yourself for the short stay there.
