      Will it be chilly in the morning and evening in Hanoi and Halong, will it be misty / rainy / windy.....
      We do appreciate that nobody can forecast the weather but it would be useful to have first hand experience of previous weathers in Feb..... We have checked the various web sites on climate and weathers in the area and are tempted to go further south.... Please somebody advise us that Feb is a good time to go.....

      So, I will be in Ho Chi Minh from Friday to Sunday, and I am trying to understand if it's possible to get a same day visa for Cambodia in a consulate. Yes, I know about the e-visa, I am just not fond of the concept. Yes, I know there is VOA in land borders, I am just not sure if the secondary bus company connecting Can Tho with PP will let me board without a visa and, of course, if I take care of it in the consulate that means least chances of "troubles" dealing with the border staff.

      Hi There,
      We complete our halong bay cruise on the 28.04.13 and will then fly to Da Nang for the next leg of our honeymoon. My question is as follow: would we be better to travel back to hanoi and fly from there to Da Nang, or else travel the shorter distance to Cat Bi Airport and fly from there to Dan Nang? we can get the 18.00 flight from Hanoi arrive Da nang @ 19.15 or the 16.30 from Cat Bi arrrice danang 18.15. Any opinions on using cat bi airport would be greatly appreciated particularly in relation to getting taxis from halong bay to there, facilities at the airport (its looks pretty basic), safety, other western opinions/experiences of using it, and also its its affected by fog/weather at this time of year? All help and opinions would be great as we dont particularly want to spend 4 hours going back to hanoi airport if there is an easier way!

I've been told this is quite doable, but would be very interested in hearing from anyone who has travelled in this area. I'd like to spend quite a bit of time in Guilin and the rice terraces (Longji & Jinkeng) to soak up the atmosphere, and also go on a river cruise for a few days in Guilin and perhaps a junk overnight in Halong. Can anyone give me some insider tips, i.e. places to stay, how to travel (train, car/driver). Our budget is middle of the road. Thanks so much for any info!

      Most Junk operators offers two options to go/return from Hanoi to Halong Bay

      * Shuttle Bus
      * Private Car

      While I think that perhaps a Shuttle Bus is a good (and cheap) options, I have read comment of some tourists complaining about the bus is not comfortable enough, that there is not a place for the luggage (then you should keep it above you), etc...

      Also I wonder if a privete car may be used also as a private tour (perhaps to stop in the route to take some photos, etc...

      I would like to ear of those that have had experience in order to take a decision. Thanks in advance!

      My question is that I have to be back in hanoi for a 1430 flight on the second day, how reliable are the times from different companies and does anyone have the name of a smaller more personal company over the big 5 that I should look out for when I am there.

      Cruise through Halong Bay September 19 & 20 - looking for participants

      by bisbj Online Now Sep 7, 2009 at 1:03 AM

      I note that some people on this site find Cat Ba a tourist trap; I do not quite share that opinion. Compared with the hundred of boats going out of the Bai Chay charter boat harbour it is very peaceful. I no longer live in Hanoi but I am back in Vietnam for work and would like to repeat my favourite trip. The itinerary would be:

      Day 1:
      Leave Hanoi at 6.30 am for the two-hour drive to Hai Phong and take the hydrofoil to Cat Ba. Arrival will be at 11.00 am. Check into hotel and then spend the afternoon on Cat Ba beach no. 2. Alternatively, a boat could be rented for the afternoon for50 or60 (possible activities are kayaking (extra cost about7), caves, swimming and an island with monkeys & lots of other tourists).

      Day 2:
      Take a boat for the day back to Halong City. This is a six - eight hour boat trip including stops. Normally I stop at a couple of “natural” caves (these being without any facilities) and go for a swim or two; either on remote beaches or just off the side of the boat. Lunch is on the boat. Return to Hanoi by around 5 or 6 pm.

      The costs for a good quality car or minibus from Hanoi to Hai Phong and subsequently back to Hanoi from Ha Long City is around100. Boat rental should be under100 for Cat Ba to Ha Long City. So with four people splitting the costs, each would have to pay under50, more participants would lower costs. Other costs for each individual are hydrofoil tickets ($10), hotel on Cat Ba ($15 for a single or double room in 2007 at my preferred hotel), and lunch on the boat ($2 or3). Lunch & dinner on the Saturday and all beverages are not included in the above budget.

      I am not sure how the practical aspects will work: I am working outside Hanoi before and after my proposed trip, but I would like some mechanism, so that I am not stuck alone with a minibus and hydrofoil at 6.30 on the Saturday morning! Alternatively, somebody else could collect down payments and fund the vehicle & hydrofoil reservation (I will do the practical work).

      Right now I am just seeing if anybody is interested, it is a beautiful trip away from the crowds.

      Halong Bay - more adventure, less luxury?

      by idy Online Now Aug 14, 2009 at 7:20 AM

      Greetings forum folks!

      I wonder if anyone knows of a reputable tour/cruise company that offers something alternative to the luxury cruises, at a reasonable price for a backpacker.

      I'm looking for something like Indochina Junk's fisherman homestay trip , but I'd also like to explore the caves and maybe even hike at Cat Ba National Park.

      Your recommendations would be very much appreciated!

      I am planning on a trip to Halong bay next month. Any Halong Cruise to recommend?
      Anyone been on the Bai Tu long junk cruise or the Huong Hai cruise?
      I was quoted 149USD and 170USD respectively. Am i been ripped off or the price is reasonable?

      ODC Travel feedback

      by stamporama Online Now Jul 1, 2009 at 3:18 PM

      I've read some previous VT tips regarding ODC and they seem to be generally favorable so I intend to book an overnight cruise with them. To have a confirmed booking however, their terms in their website stated that they need not just my credit card details but also my 3 signatures.

      Since I'm suppose to divulge credit card info, I need to know if this is a reliable company and if others who have toured with them had no booking problems.

      Thanks for any replies.
