    • Ho do I get lunar days compared to solar ones ?

      Vietnam Sep 25, 2015 at 2:21 AM

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

      Vietnam 11 hours ago

      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.

      is it for us?

      by Hoggie Online Now Jun 13, 2015 at 3:32 AM

      First off I was looking at Da Dang but now after some feedback Hoi An has been recommended to us.

      What we like
      would be going for 3 weeks
      like to lounge about the pool through the day
      go for lunch and a beer
      some tours to break it up
      go out at night for dinner and beer
      not so young now, like the choice of having a quit beer and moving on to a livelier area.

      would you recommend Hoi An to us for what we want?

      by travelling_princess8 Online Now Oct 24, 2011 at 1:05 AM

      We will be in Hoi An on Dec. 24 and 25, 2011. I am trying to book accommodations and find that some hotels (like Ancient House Resort and Hai An Pacific) are charging a mandatory X-mas Eve and X-mas dinner fee of around35 USD per person. Does anyone know whether this will be standard with all hotels of similar standard to the above mentioned hotels for X-mas (ie. should I give up on trying to find a hotel that doesn't charge this surcharge)?

      I really don't want to pay for this dinner, as we would rather just get a bowl of pho to celebrate X-mas in Vietnam!
