$600 is worth the ticket alone.

For $600 roundtrip, that alone is worth it.

Sounds too good to be true. Smells like a scam to me.

That is actually a very good price as it usually ranges from $1000-1400 in the off season flying from Atlanta, GA and about $1500+ during peak season (May-Aug?) for rountrips alone.

As for food/hotel expenses, you can easily rent a hotel room for about $10-15/night assuming it isn't a resort style like the Ritz which will hit $100+ a night. Hotels in DaLat and Nha Trang will probably be a bit more expensive since they're tourist-y cities known for the cool climate in Da Lat and the beaches in Nha Trang.

you can spend as little as you want in dalat and nha Trang if you eat street food. hcmc is typically double the cost. a hotel room starts at $25-30 for a decent room. you can find hotels in small alleys for $10 or less too, and they are similarly good quality. in total $500/wk not including hotels is a good budget. if you take the bus only take sinh tourist. it's the most comfortable, reliable bus for only like $2 more than the cheap ones

You are lucky that trip cost you only $600. I've just made a calculation that the cost could be at least near $1700.

$600 and $1700 The price of this compare is amazing. Someone tell me that you should give tips when you are in Vietnam airport. That's true?

Recently flown to Vietnam for a vacation (late April 2016). I paid about $750 just for the air fare alone, and that was considerably cheap already. As for the hotels in those city, I would suggest going on hotel booking sites and book through them. I was able to secure several nights in Saigon (HCMC) for only $10 a night.

WRT to the "fee" to get out of the airport: although my parents always do this (giving a $20 inside their passport to have a hassle free trip), I chose not to do it. I hated giving money to those people when it is not necessary. If you speak purely English to them, they can't do much to you besides letting you through. BTW - I speak their language.
