One more reason why Hai Phong has become one of Vietnam’s most popular destinations is its delectable seafood offerings.

In addition, Banh Mi Que Hai Phong (Haiphong finger-size baguette) is a must-try dish featuring meaty pork pate stuffed inside a finger-sized baguette, all of which is then dipped in the local chili sauce.
