How to save money is high on the priority list for most tourists. Here are our picks of the best Vietnamese resorts that don't cost you your leg and arm.

Vela Phu Quoc Resort

Opened in 2016 near Ong Lang Beach, the resort with 48 rooms is some 20 kilometers (13 miles) from the airport. Wood is the main material, giving the place a pleasant tropical island climate. Check out the poolside lounge chairs, which come with curtains for privacy. $45-68 per night

Diadem Resort

This Phu Quoc resort on Tran Hung Dao Street is close to the tourist-heaven Duong Dong Town. The bungalows are spacious enough for your big family. Walk to the beach or stay in and enjoy a nice dinner. $27-50 per night

Phu Quoc Paris Beach Resort

This is one of the nicest places to watch the sunset. There's nothing here that feels or looks like Paris, but that shouldn't matter. The swimming pool, the garden and the beach are more than enough. $39-84 per night

Hong Bin Bungalow

A hillside three-star resort on Tran Hung Dao Street, also in Phu Quoc. The swimming pool is small, but you won't even notice it when you spend most of your day by the sea. Its rooftop bar is a great spot for sunset view. $36-65 per night

Memento Country Home

A resort in Khanh Hoa Province with a countryside setting. Around 35 kilometers (21 miles) from Cam Ranh Airport, it has old-school cottages with modern amenities. To complete your bucolic experience, go fishing, take a hammock nap and enjoy food served in bamboo baskets. $27-35 per night

Another three-star resort in Phan Thiet on Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street. With 21 deluxe rooms and suite rooms, the resort is a few minutes away from Ham Tien Beach. It is praised for a relaxing and cozy atmosphere, the range of services is quite limited. Around $26 per night
