Traveling economically seems to be all the rage these days. VietJet Air, Vietnam’s rising aviation superstar and low-cost carrier, is set to surpass national carrier Vietnam Airlines. Now it seems like even inner-city travel is getting the awesome treatment. We can thank Kevin Cook for that. If you have ever wondered how you could travel through an entire city like Saigon for under $20 a day, now you have the answer.

Our friend Kevin Cook over at Monkey Abroad did the above in sublime fashion. He was kind enough to detail the entire adventure in this brief (but incredibly amusing) video. Watch Kevin visit tourist attractions and marketplaces, try exotic street food, and enjoy amazing Saigon beer. He keeps track of his progressively declining budget as he progresses, so you are in for some fun viewing!
