VND1M is about RM180

their food is like RM2.50-3.00 per person. who would even go near that shop?

and BKT is from Klang. when is it from Singapore?

SG version BKT, Pepper soup base
Because from SG, must convert from SGD.
40SGD BKT meal in SG consider normal.

I been to Vietnam a few times, at first I thought their food price +- the same as in Malaysia. I was so wrong. my 2nd trip there I stay at outskirt area, the price is like 15,000, 18,000, 20,000, 25,000 max for a bowl of noodle. that's RM2.70-5.00.

Eating at KFC is like a luxury for them I guess.

to fork RM180 to eat BKT is simply mind blown laugh.gif
if their fast food also closing down 1 by 1, i don't think this shop will survive long as well

Funny, I never seen any family style restaurant in Vietnam. more towards stalls and roadside foods. Maybe cause their mode of transport so family eating out is not so normal.

Malaysia no lobster buffet. Vietnam got lobster buffet.

This is Year 2018. Malaysia no longer #2 behind Singapore in South East Asia. In many ways (economy, growth rate, education, access to basic amenities, infrastructure) - Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines are overtaking or poised to overtake our beloved homeland in leaps and bounds.

other than halong bay, is Sapa recommended?

what are the attractive in the 2 places??

I went to Vietnam before and I really amazed with Mekong Delta. Mekong Delta is a colourful floating markets, fruit orchards, rice paddies, sugar cane groves, bird sanctuaries and quaint villages. It located in southwestern Vietnam. and yes, Sapa is a very nice place to enjoy with your loved ones because of the weather is pretty chill and a perfect spot for any social media post. Sapa present views beautiful waterfalls and the opportunities to experience the food, customs and way of life among the local tribes. Hope its helpful! smile.gif
