The Vietnamese condotel market, the only one in the region, shows serious problems because of legal deadlocks. Kai Marcus Schroter, CEO of Hospitality Tourism Management, commented that local authorities still lack necessary knowledge when assessing condotel projects.

Emanuel Hänsenberger, 24, and Fabian Seiler, 25, from Switzerland, who were also inspired to come to the Southeast Asian country by a tourist’s video on Youtube, spent 4 weeks traveling over 1700 km from Hanoi to Saigon by motorbike. “I’m a bike fanatic, and I heard that Vietnam is great to travel by bike,” said Hänsenberger. They bought two Honda Wins on their third day in Hanoi and started the trip southwards. “We didn’t have any specific plan, except from that we didn’t want to spend too much time in touristic places. So no schedule, we just decided spontaneously.” Hänsenberger recalled. "What impressed me the most was the people, like it was very easy to build friendships and have an emotional bond in a short time with a lot of them," said Hänsenberger.
