Vietnam or Taiwan

Jump to last reply

I've asked this on other forums but not on here:

I've narrowed my choices to 9 days in Vietnam or 9 days in Taiwan. Vietnam is more exotic, perhaps has a wider variety of scenery and has the interesting war history. Taiwan has famously friendly people, is off the beaten track, few hassles and is easy to get around. Flights to Taiwan from NY are about $100 cheaper, though Vietnam will be cheaper once I get there. I was just in northeast Asia in October (in China and HK), but have not been to Southeast Asia since 2005. I prefer Chinese food to Vietnamese.

Which would you choose?

I'd say the biggest things working against Vietnam for me are the scams / touts and the idea the 2 million motorbikes in Hanoi. I'm not one for who appreciates noise, exhaust fumes and trying to cross the street with crazy drivers speeding towards me.
