Top Instagram Accounts You Should Follow For Vietnam Travel Inspiration

Before I visit a new place, I usually go to the app, type the keyword search for information about food to try, hotel reviews, and places to visit. I also love taking clothing inspiration from the fashionable girls around the world so I will know what should I pack for my trip (instead of carrying my whole wardrobe like I used to).

Among thousands of travel-focused accounts on Instagram, here are some Instagramers who have taken plenty of beautiful pictures of the Vietnam that I love. Let’s take a peek at their profile to motivate you to visit my home country.

In 2016, a German traveler visited Vietnam. He was amazed by the magnificent beauty of the country, the friendliness of the people, and the different cultures of a developing country in Southeast Asia. Through his first 30 days in Vietnam, he visited many places from North to South, from mountains to beaches, and bustling cities. After returning to Germany, he realized that had fallen in love with Vietnam and decided to go back for another road trip in 2017 and officially moved there to live one year later. His Instagram features pictures of Vietnam that he took from his road trip and his daily life. You can expect small stories about a journey of a foreigner in Saigon. I like the way he writes the captions because it feels like he is talking right to you.




On top of that, @Brightsidetrip has many unique spots that most travelers don’t know about. Follow him if you are thinking about moving to Vietnam and wonder how life would be in this tropical land.

A Vietnamese family meal

Many of thiennguyen1012 posts will make you hungry. Thien is a Vietnamese travel blogger based in Saigon and Da Nang. If he isn’t taking pictures of eye candy food, he’s paying attention to simple things around him or moments that he found interesting during his trip. However, he writes most of the captions in Vietnamese. Therefore, if you are learning the language, it’s a great opportunity. On the other hand, it’s already good to just take a glance at his delightful pictures.
