      I intend travelling from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang(and onwards to Da Nang) in November.
      I dont like the idea of prebooking and collecting in Vietnam.Is it easy to book tickets in Vietnam and collect when buying.
      Train appears to be a better option than the bus?

      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!

      First time in Ho Chi Minh

      Ho Chi Minh City Jun 1, 2015 at 1:49 PM

      Hi all,
      We will be travelling to Vietnam for the first time during February 2016. We fly into Ho Chi Minh from Siem Reap, before moving onto Phu Quoc. We are considering about four days in HCMC. We enjoy Eco, history, eating and drinking and generally roaming aimlessly....
      So here are the questions
      What to see / do in HCMC, is four days enough time
      Which are the best areas of the delta to see to experience Vietnamese lifestyle and is it worth spending a few days in this area.
      Best and most interesting way to Phu Quoc
      Many thanks in anticipation

      Vietnam visa help

      Ho Chi Minh City May 16, 2015 at 8:55 PM

      Hello! I would like to travel to Vietnam, and am currently in Thailand, leaving for Laos very soon. I'm a U.S. Citizen and was wondering how long it takes to get a visa, not a visa approval, but the visa itself. The only reason can't do a VOA is because I would like to travel over the border instead of flying into Vietnam. My 3 basic questions are, how long does the visa take to get, what's the process, and how much does it cost compared to a VOA? Tia!

    • Mekong tour

      Ho Chi Minh City Mar 8, 2015 at 11:26 PM

      Hi,

      I'm departing to HCM City in 2 days time and rushing for info now :-) Read quite a few info about Mekong but I'm confused because looks like there are Mekong Cruise and Mekong Tour 2 different type.

      Since I don't want cruising on a big ship so I search for the Mekong 1 or 2 days tour. Prices range from $15 to $300 which varies a lot and I can't find out the pick up point (this is important because I need to check the transport time needed from my accommodation place to there). Can anybody give me some idea?

      BTW, are there any suggestion in dining at some of the French Colonial design hotels? I may want to try one, sit there to experience the environment.

      Many tks,
      Lily

      Hi,

      Understand that we can apply for Visa On Arrival in Tan Son Nhat Int'l Airport and would like confirm with more update information for my trip in March 2015.

      1. Apply online to some Vietnam travel agents to get a "government pre-approved letter" by email.
      2. Present the "government pre-approved letter" to immigration officers upon arrival to get the visa chop
      3. Do we need to prepare any photos for the Visa on Arrival?
      4. The US$45 VOA visa fee must be paid in cash and in US$ only?

      Pls advise. Many tks,

      I and 5 more friends (not so old adults, age ranging from 40-50yo) will be visiting HCMC on Oct 15-20. Been to the city twice already and I found Cu Chi Tunnels and city tour recommendable. Was planning to experience more, such as the following tours:
      1 Day Mekong Delta. Which is better between My Tho-Ben Tre and Cai Be-Vinh Long?
      1 Day Cao Dai Temple + Cu Chi Tunnels. Is this possible in a day?

      Any advice how a group can best experience HCMC to the fullest?
