There are many awesome fruits in Vietnam for you to try!


1. Rambutan (Chom Chom)

The appearance of this fruit might leave a deep impression on foreign tourists as it looks like a sea creature with its thick and rough shell. However, when the shell is removed, its flesh is juicy and sweet enough to amaze anyone who has a chance to taste. Some foreign tourists say that the rambutan has a very delicate flavor making them hungry for a second try.

It is worth noting that the best rambutan in Vietnam is Chom Chom Nhan – it is smaller with less thorns compared to other rambutans but its flavor is juicier and sweeter. On your Vietnam private tour, this fruit should absolutely be on the list of top fruits to try.

There are generally two types of jackfruits in Vietnam – one dry and crunchy while the other is sticky and sweeter. No matter which kind of jackfruit you would like to try, on your Vietnam vacation remember to buy the ready-to-eat bulks instead of the whole ones with sharp pickles.
