1. Is there a place in Vietnam with lots of ESL schools and cheap accomodations?

Is Hanoi a backpacking destination?

Hanoi and Saigon are the ultimate backpacking destinations in Viet. As for ESL schools and cheap rooms - I believe that would have to be Hue. In fact, one of the Aussies I know from Tripadvisor just started an ESL place there. I would give out his contact info, but he asked that I respect his privacy. Hanoi is the most interesting of the large cities in Vietnam, Hue is the best looking, and Saigon is the business center of the country. Hue is blessed with some of the best food there, and is the center of Viet culture and education.

Is cheaper to travel in Vietnam than Thailand?

I understand it is slightly cheaper there, but I believe it compares very well on accommodations and food.
