    • How much does it cost to obtain a hard copy visa stamp from the Viet Nam Embassy in the UK?

      Vietnam Oct 6, 2015 at 12:53 AM


      I will be travelling by bus into Vietnam from Cambodia and therefore I require a hard copy visa stamp to show at the border crossing point. (I will be staying in Vietnam for longer than 15 days.)

      Is there any way to obtain a legitimate hard copy visa stamp for Vietnam in the UK before travelling other than sending my passport to the Viet Nam Embassy in London? The website is archaic and provides no information on how much this costs.

      Does anybody know exactly how much the entire process costs (recorded delivery from and to a UK address, visa stamp, fees, arbitrary charges, etc.) and, crucially, do I have any alternative?

      Thank you,

    • What should I do within 10 days in South East Asia?

      Vietnam Oct 4, 2015 at 8:27 PM

      My family has 6 people and we are going to the South East Asia at the beginning of 2016. My grandfather wants to come to Vietnam to recall about his memories in the past. He also wants to meet some old friends in the battle if it could be possible. I’ve heard that some travel agents in Vietnam could arrange a meeting with ex soldiers so if you guys have some ideal about these please kindly recommend me. Not all of my family members are young so we need comfortable accommodation and light activities. I searched on Google and saw some results of the Best Price Vietnam and I think it seems quite okay.
      What do you guys think? Thanks.

      I have 5 days to spend in one of these two places.

      Which one would you suggest? I don't have any particular things i am interested in - just looking to get lost for a few days. Both seem to have places to go on good day/ over night trips to escape the crowds. I really cant decide between the two.

      Can anyone whos been to both help throw some light. If it helps, i have been to S.E Asia before - Thailand and Singapore. This will be just a 5-day trip from Hong Kong - so no other itinerary logistics. Also, I travel alone.

    • 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. 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

      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.
