If travelers are looking for a milder climate, relative quiet of stay, a more budget level of prices and, accordingly, comfort, it is better to go on vacation to Vietnam. The disadvantages of recreation here include street thefts and the lack of interesting sights built by Europeans — which are plentiful in Thailand.

If you are attracted by a vibrant nightlife, lots of entertainment for every taste and a high level of service — welcome to Thailand.

The climate for both countries is approximately the same: a large tourist flow occurs at the end of winter- the beginning of spring. The presence of both countries in the tropics zone means a constant period of prolonged rains (it is better to foresee this short time of uncomfortable weather in advance at the rest date).  There are more places in Vietnam where the pristine nature has been preserved and the ecology of such places is better.
