      Route Advice

      Vietnam Aug 26, 2015 at 7:22 AM

      Hello, I'm planning on coming to Vietnam for two weeks at the end of October. The basic plan is to purchase a motorcycle in HCMC and ride to Hanoi. I'm hoping someone has done a similar trip and has some advice about which route to take and what are the "must see's" along the way. I would like to see as much of the country as possible in my two weeks.

      Thank you in advance.

    • How long in Hanoi and places to stop off.

      Hanoi Aug 20, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      We, my wife and I arrive in Hanoi 2 Feb and intend training down to Ho Chi Min where we depart on the 27th. Concerned about TET.

    • Getting to Cat Ba island

      Cat Ba Aug 28, 2015 at 8:53 PM

      We heard that this is lovely, but a tour operator/travel agency we've been communicating with in Hanoi wrote the following: "Cat Ba island is unrecommended because it’s almost for local people only."
      Why would they say this? Can you recommend a tour that includes Cat Ba?

    • How much money do I need for 7 day in Hanoi

      Vietnam Aug 19, 2015 at 12:47 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I and my girlfriend are having a plan to visit Hanoi, Vietnam this September to see Mid-autumn festival. We’ve never been in Vietnam before and we don’t know how much money we need for a 7-day-trip. We also want to make an adventure to the north. I heard prices in Vietnam are quite cheap. So can you give me some example about prices of hotel, restaurant or spa?

      Thank you very much.

    • Itinerary advice

      Vietnam Aug 25, 2015 at 5:13 PM

      We are at the starting line with regard to planning our trip. Ideally, we'd like to have a well paced, comprehensive trip to Vietnam, Cambodia/Angkor Wat, and maybe Luang Prabang/Laos. January or February would be ideal for us. We prefer to avoid the days around Tet after reading all the warnings on this site.
      Does anyone have a sense of where guided tours are essential, and what is doable on our own as English-only speakers? Should we start with a local US travel agent or tour operator in Vietnam, or plan the whole trip through web sites?
