[Có tiếng Việt bên dưới] Galápagos islands are recognized as World Heritage Site by UNESCO, but they weren’t on my list before I arrived to Ecuador because I thought it might be out of my budget. I booked the flight only one week in advance, didn’t have any accommodation reservation (as usual) and came here with little

[English – Tiếng Việt] Ecuador offers visa exemption for most countries, including Vietnam, up to 90 days. Ecuadorean official currency is US dollar, like Panama.
