“If you’ve ever tucked into a steaming bowl of pho, you’ll understand why foodie travellers fall in love with Vietnam”, said Skyscanner.

According to Skyscanner, Vietnamese food is irresistible, such as banh mi (bread) stuffed rolls, and soft and fresh salad rolls filled with shrimp and mint leaves.

After they enjoy the street food in Hanoi, Skyscanner also suggested visitors take an hour-long domestic flight to the city of Hoi An, where Chinese, French and Japanese influences are combined.
