    • Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine Needed in the Northern Part of Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong,Sapa, ) Area?

      Sapa Jun 26, 2015 at 12:14 PM

      At the end of July/beginning of August I will be taking the train from Hanoi to the Northwest Vietnam to Lao Cai stop (near the border of China), then headed to Sapa. We will be going for a walk to some villages, which are surrounding the area. I understand this is now somewhat touristy.

      Have there been concerns with Japanese Encephalitis? I am wondering if any of you have had the inoculation in anticipation of traveling to this area.Have you heard of anyone getting bitten?

      Philippine peso to USD to dong

      Ho Chi Minh City Jun 16, 2015 at 3:06 AM

      hello! I will be arriving on the 22nd of June at 12:20 AM and I don't think money changers at the airport are still open that time? My question is should I exchange MOST of my PH peso here in the Philippines to USD and exchange USD to dong when I arrive in VN? I have no visa/mastercard so I won't be able to withdraw money using ATMs and I need dong for the taxi fare. I still have to check if PH money changers can exchange peso/usd to dong. Hope my question is clear > Thank you!

      is it for us?

      Hoi An 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?

      Thanks
      H
