12. Alluring Vietnamese country-style decor

Most Airbnb rental units are decked in conventional decor. Not this one. This is a wondrously quirky room adorned with eye-catching Vietnamese country-style furniture. Check out the wooden stools, gas lamps, and wicker chairs. You will want to stay and immerse yourself in the laid-back atmosphere of this room. But we would urge you to go out and explore, with the apartment just minutes away from Hanoi’s night market, walking street, and beer street. At the very least, step out of the room and make friends with the guesthouse staff, who may invite you to join them for a cooked dinner or even a BBQ on the rooftop.

Greenery lovers will absolutely adore this Scandinavian-style three-bedroom house that can house up to seven guests.

The host lives on the opposite side of the street, and you can text her to arrange for tours or airport pick-up service.
