Don’t give money for the beggars

Da Nang city is very fresh, nice and clean. It’s not like Ho Chi Minh and Ha Noi, there are many lottery ticket sellers, beggars on over the street. If you don’t want to get trouble with them. You should say “Khong! Cam On!, it means “No! Thanks!” then go way far from them before they can pull your shirt or nudge you. Should not give money for them or sharing too much sympathy with them.

Actually, doing like I said is not good because they are old, disabled and harmless. However, you can help them by join in charity or visit some of orphans in Vietnam.

Go far away the city as you can to see more of the local activity, it so interesting. Trying to make a local friends if you can speak English, that’s your advantage because young people in Vietnam want to make a friend with foreigners to train their English. I wish you have a good trip to Vietnam with the wonderful experience.
