Booking accomodations in Vietnam

Jump to last reply

My fiancé and I are considering a honeymoon to Vietnam. We want to go somewhere on the beach that is affordable and exotic. We randomly spoke to a stranger in passing who mentioned that he and his wife honeymooned there and it was "super cheap" due to the currency exchange. He explained that we can book an ocean villa with a private beach for $35 USD a night and eat well along with drinks for less than $20/person/day. He got our wheels spinning so we began to do some research and these are not the prices we are finding. However, this man had extended family there and he did mention that they stayed with them briefly. This makes us think that possibly the prices are so high because of trying to book through travel agencies from America and they were able to book directly with the resort while being present in Vietnam already.

We are not sure if we want to chance not booking something before we arrive but are curious if this is a safe/do-able possibility...?? Would we be able to get a private villa on the beach for only $35 USD (or in this ballpark range) if we wait until we get there?

Any advice is appreciated!!
