      Hi all, we asked a question a couple of weeks ago about visa changes. I now have a further visa question so hope someone can help me
      We are UK citizens and in February 2016 will be in Vietnam on holiday.
      We intend to leave Vietnam at the border crossing in Hat Tien, to travel to Kep in Cambodia.
      1. Is this border crossing open to foreign nationals?
      2. Can we use an e-visa to make this route.
      Or, 3 Do we need to obtain a visa before our travels from the Cambodian Embassy, here in the UK
      Any advice on the easiest way to make this crossing would be gratefully received.
      Many thanks in advance

      Any recommendation for where to go for dinner after seeing the Starlight Bridge? I was told the water show is only between 6 to 8pm.. Coming from District 1, it’s good if we can combine the bridge with dinner nearby..

    • 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?

    • left mobile telephone in Cat Ba

      Cat Ba May 2, 2014 at 3:22 AM

      We left our mobile telephone in the hotel in Cat Ba. The hotel (of which we don't know the name) was situated at the left end of the promenade almost opposite the bridge where the fishermen are (if you are with your back to the water). Next to it was a bigger hotel with balcony rooms. Our hotel had water views, but no balconys. The people did not speak English, they had a baby. Outside their place were a lot a big glass bottles with yellow liquid in, and some substance (dried food?or flowers? inside). There were a lot of these bottles outside. Our mobile Phone was a Polaroid one, the cable for uploading and little cotton bag was left there too. We are looking for someone who could go to this place and find out whether they have found it, and give them our email-address so that they can contact us ( It would be nice if somebody could help us. Lots of thanks beforehand,
