Things are generally quite cheap in Vietnam, especially compared to Western world standards. It is hard to say the exact price for things, since it varies some depending on if you are purchasing them in a store, market, restaurant or street cart, for some examples. Yet, the prices don’t vary too much, so you don’t have to constantly feel like you should be searching for a better deal. Of course, in general, products are a tiny bit cheaper if you buy them at a wet market or off the street as opposed to a storefront location.
If you are buying food, fruits and vegetables are subject to change by seasons and meat and dairy may experience minor price adjustments.
These charts are only posted to help give you a rough idea of what to expect. Please do not be surprised if these estimations/averages aren’t exactly what you find, and keep in mind that things will cost a bit more within the larger cities in Vietnam and conversely, outside of them, things will be much cheaper!
