Do I still have days where I’m [internally] screaming at the bank teller for giving me different information on one day than she had the day prior? Yep. Are there days where I’m literally screaming at motorbike taxi drivers for taking the longest route possible despite their Google Maps displayed clearly in front of them? Once a week. It’s all about balance, right?
What I’m trying to say is, when you begin to feel agitated, the best way of overcoming culture shock in Vietnam is to just wholeheartedly embrace every source of your frustration. It’s certainly a challenge, but a major perk is you won’t be that annoying expat complaining about everything under the sun. The biggest perk of all, however, is that you’ll be fully seizing each moment and making memories that last a lifetime.
