Vietnamese Phrases for Cyclers

During the journey you can meet many Vietnamese people, some of them can wave their hands and say “hello” to you. The simplest way to respond is by saying “ hello” with a smile, but if you can say some Vietnamese sentences like “Xin chào” or “ Cảm ơn” that‘s much greater. In case you want to ask someone for the direction you should use the phrase “ ở đâu”, it sounds like “o dough”. But the best way to find direction is by writing it down because it is quite hard for foreigners to pronounce Vietnamese, or by using Google Maps.
