Vietnam

Is

Awesome

Vietnam Is Awesome started in 2016 as a public Facebook group that allows locals and tourists to share their experiences in Vietnam. The name was chosen to reflect our goal of promoting positive aspects emphasizing the awesomeness of Vietnam! Our group offers a place to for users to ask questions, make recommendations, or just share photos!  

Since then, we have grown into a platform that directly reflects our community-driven feedback. We believe that travel should be about more than just ticking off a list of must-see sights. It should be an opportunity to connect with new people, experience new cultures, and create lasting memories. 

Our platform celebrates community and encourages travelers to connect and share their experiences.
