    • work visa renewal

      Vietnam Yesterday

      Can I get a Vietnam Work Visa renewed in Phnom Penh, Cambodia? I have a one month, single entry work visa extension now (from a 3 month multi entry work visa). They are saying I cannot get my second extension in the country anymore, but need to go to Cambodia. But I am not sure if I can get the work visa there, or only a tourist visa. I am a short term US teacher in Vietnam.

    • Visa Renewal/Extension

      Vietnam Jan 7, 2015 at 8:05 PM

      I will be landing in Vietnam on February 9th and have applied for a 3-month visa. I plan on traveling around Southeast Asia and returning to Vietnam for the flight home. When is the earliest we can get an extension/renew the visa so that we can enter the country again on May 15th for our return flight home? (Since the visa will expire on May 9th).

      I will be in Vietnam from 02/09-02/20 and again 03/25-04/22. I was hoping I could apply for the renewal on March 25th when I return to the country. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    • Homestay in Sapa

      Sapa Jan 17, 2015 at 7:15 PM

      Hi, Can anyone recommend to me how I should arrange my trip to Sapa?

       

      As I will arrive in Hanoi on the 20th of Feb, I was planning to take the overnight train to Sapa and be there till the 23rd before taking the train back, a total of 3D2N spent in Sapa.

       

      • I know I will be able to book the train tickets online but what about the bus from Lao Cai to Sapa? I have heard many commented that they booked through either an agency or the hotel, because I'm pretty sure I will get ripped off if I were to book it at the train station itself. 
      • Since I will be there for 3D2N, are there 2 nights homestay or should I do just a 1N homestay and 1N hotel before heading back to hanoi?

    • Ideas on itinerary

      Vietnam Jan 19, 2015 at 11:21 AM

      Hello, I am planning a trip to Vietnam in February. I'd like to see Hanoi with probably a day trip to Ha Long Bay. I know it will be chilly so would rather not stay overnight on the Bay. I am also considering going to Hue, Hoi An or Danang.

      I like to see historical things and wander around different cultures. I am not too into beaches but a afternoon may be nice. I will probably be in Vietnam for 9 nights.

      How many nights do you recommend in each city?

    • Travel time from Nha Trang? (vice versa) + Canyoning tour, reviews?

      by RianneSkate Online Now Dec 3, 2013 at 8:13 AM

      I'll be visiting Vietnam in early February (yes I'm aware it's tet) I'm planning on leaving Nha Trang on the 10th and was originally going to get a flight to Da nang. Now I'm wondering whether it's worth spending 2 night in Dalat in order to do a canyoning tour which includes abseiling down the waterfalls. I was wandering if anyone had done this tour (groovy gecko or other company) and if you would recommend visiting Dalat mainly for this experience?
      Also a lot of people are saying 5-6 hours from Nha Trang to Dalat while others are saying there is a new road that takes 3-4 hours. The earliest the bus leaves is 7am and the latest flight from Nha Trang to Da nang is 12:10 is this a feasible amount of time to travel and arrive at airport with enough time? Would a private car be quicker and any idea of the cost?

    • Cycling from De Lat to the coast

      by refused Online Now Jul 5, 2009 at 4:12 AM

      Hi all

      I'm planning my trip to Vietnam - I'll be there in December for around 4 weeks and will be travelling from Chau Doc to HCMC and north to Hanoi.

      I can't make up my mind about whether to visit Dalat as it seems a bit kitsch.

      I though a good compromise might be to travel up Highway 20 from HCMC so I can pass the Dambri Falls then continue on to Delat for the night. I've read its possible to cycle from Delat to Phan Rang-Thap Cham or Nha Trang and that the ride is through beautiful scenery. ReidOnTravel.com says there's a guided cycle tour for70.

      I feel that taking this route would allow me to see a bit of the central highlands without chewing up too much time.

      My questions are:

      1. Has anyone cycled from Delat to the coast?

      2. Is it feasible and How long will it take?

      3. Can it be done independently as the guided tour option seems expensive and if so how much would bile hire be?

      Thanks so much for any help!

    • Da Lat - Nha Trang via Open tour bus - any overnight buses?

      by flyingmudpie Online Now Mar 19, 2008 at 5:27 AM

      Hi!
      I want to go from Da Lat to Nha Trang. From what I gather from my internet research, there seems to be only open tour buses that leave around 0700 to 0800 in the mornings, depending on the agency and then arrive in the afternoon at Nha Trang.

      Does anyone know if there are any open tour buses available that are overnight? Because I don't want to spend too much time travelling in the day.

      Please advise! Thanks in advance! :)

      There are so many nice falls that i wanna visit all! but i only have 1.5days and i wanna visit other DaLat Attractions too.

      1. Prenns Falls (am excited of the chance to walk through the 'water curtain')
      2. Datanla Falls (Luge Ride)
      3. Dambri Falls (one of the highest)
      4. Pongour Falls (100m semi circle wide, layered falls)
      5. Tiger Falls (some say this is the most impressive)

      can anyone help me to comment on each of the falls? rank them if you wish. how much time would i need to spend to get to each falls and time recommended to spend there?

      if i got my way, over my friends, i would go for 4 if not 5 of those. haha. by the way, i will be travelling from Saigon to Dalat.
