Vietnam Sim Cards and Packages for Tourists

Tourist Sim Cards in Vietnam
  • When something is not quite right, we, Filipinos, would often say, “I-Google mo na yan!” But what if you are outside the country and found yourself drifting in the cities of Vietnam?

    Though that’s not always the picture, wandering on its scenic streets can be more fun when you are connected to the internet. Therefore, as a preparation, you should also be considering whether you’ll go get a sim, which type and what data plans, or rent a pocket WiFi.

    To get a coverage, you may opt to get a local sim card in Vietnam. This is one of the cheapest and most convenient especially if your smartphones are already unlocked. In the Vietnamese international airports such as in Noi Bai and Da Nang, kiosks of different mobile network operators are available. It can also be bought in stores and shops by the streets.

    To make it even more convenient, you can book for sim cards already topped with your chosen plans which will cater your needs during the travel. Before flying to Vietnam, you may logged in at www.kkday.com or www.klook.com. These two online platforms allow you to choose from different options and customize the sim according to your preferences.

    Here are the lists of sim cards along with their plans and prices as per declared by the two web sites.

    Wi-Fi Rentals

    If travelling by group and everybody needs to be connected to the internet, buying sim cards for all may not be the wisest decision. After all, you’ll just dispose of it later. If so, renting pocket Wi-Fi might be the best option. So, where can you get one? Remember when I introduced you to Klook and Kkday? They do not just let you book sim cards. They can also let you barrow portable Wi-Fi hotspots at reasonable prices. It can also be accessed from different stores in Vietnam or at online shops. Here are some examples for your reference.
