What a stroke of luck to have my first ever alcohol-free holiday in Vietnam. I hadn’t planned it this way at all, but it turns out there are dozens of delicious drinks options for the sober traveller in this South East Asian country.
By the way, when drinking, especially beer, Vietnamese people say ‘MỘT, HAI, BA, VÔ! which means ‘one two three, drink!’ It’s actually pronounced: Mot, Hai, Ba, YO!“ Cheers!
Coffee! I had no idea that coffee was grown widely in Vietnam and is a major export. And coffee is a major drawcard at cafes and tea houses throughout the country.
Who knew that there would be all sorts of cool craft breweries in Vietnam? Not me… myself and my husband visited a couple of them, and my drink of choice was generally a tonic water. Paul enjoyed a few ales.
So, there you go. There’s absolutel no shortage of cool drinks to enjoy in Vietnam, you can definitely find drinks that are interesting, cause a taste sensation to the tongue and that feel like treats.
