Canadian travel magazine The Travel has included Vietnam in a list of the "world's 10 most incredible destinations which are surprisingly cheap to visit," along with Laos and Indonesia.

"It is one of the cheapest countries to visit, and among the most underrated," the magazine said.

Eating local dishes will only cost you a few dollars per meal, and a cup of iced coffee is less than a dollar.

Ca phe da, iced coffee, has become an indispensable part of Vietnamese daily life in recent years – with millions starting their day with a cup in the morning.

A cup of iced coffee costs VND10,000-15,000 ($0.43-0.64).

The Travel also recommended tourists to explore Vietnam by bus or train with cheap airfares.

"If you don't mind slow, long-distance travel, buses, and trains around Vietnam are among the most affordable in the world, making it easy to explore all of this beautiful country," it added.

The rest also includes Greek Islands, India, Colombia, Nicaragua, Mexico, Poland and Romania.
