Problem with words like 'cheap', 'pricey', 'not too expensive' is that everyone has a different idea of what the mean.

It also depends on what you plan to do. Drink cocktails in a high end resort/rent a car/just lie on the beach.

Here's a start: https:/… A couple of years old, but add 10% or so and you won't be far off.

Generally areas frequented by tourists are a bit more expensive than the rest of the country. And in tourist areas, moving back a few streets from the main areas can save you money.

On average the island is about 20 to 30% more expensive than the mainland. That said, Vietnam now being the cheapest country in the region, is still cheap.

Paradoxically, the things you would expect to be much more expensive because they are heavy and bulky and have to be shipped in, are not :Example alcoholic beverages about the same as on the mainland :Dalat wine 65 to 90 K, cần of beer around 10000, bottle of Hanoi Vodka 85000, exactly the same as across the water.

Locally made baguettes or noodles, on the other hand, are 50% more expensive :A baguette sandwich is 15000 on the island 10000 in the rest of the delta area.

So, if you are a drinker like myself, there is nothing to worry. If , on the other hand,you eat like a horse, stay on the mainland.
