    • 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!

      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

      better place for family with 2-year-old for one week - Phu Quoc or Mui Ne?

      Phu Quoc Sep 21, 2013 at 6:22 AM

      Traveling late Jan / early Feb (the Chinese New Year). Will fly into HCMC and likely spend a couple days there. Afterwards want to spend about one week at a nice resort - ideally on the beach and with nice pool etc. Don't need a lot of adventure given the toddler. At first was looking at Mui Ne, but then thought Phu Quoc might be better since we could fly there form HCMC, and Mui Ne is a rather long bus or car trip. I know this isn't a lot of information but would appreciate your views if you have any.

      Thanks!

      Snorkeling

      Phu Quoc Oct 2, 2012 at 8:33 AM

      Hi fellow travellers. I am going to Phu Quoc for 5 nights in December and would really love to try some snorkeling whilst there. I have heard snorkeling isn't that great, but I am not too worried as long as I can see some tropical fish. I have snorkeled a few times in Thailand (Phuket) where the corals are pretty dull and dead. I have my own gear, therefore, I'd love to hear your experiences of any trips that you have organised yourselves by hiring a boat from local fishermen as well as any trips organised by companies such Phu Quoc Explorer - especially the private tours. I have spent quite a few hours online looking for information so I have a pretty good idea what to expect from John's and Rainbow Divers, which isn't necessarily what I am looking for.

      I am planning a family trip ti Phu Quoc between end of December, beginning of January 2012. I have read some great reviews and seem to like the idea of a laid back vacation there. However, I have a phobia of dogs (and all kind of animals). How are the dogs there? Do they run wild,without leashes? Are we bothered by them at the beach, market and other public places. I also have children under 5 who are afraid of dogs. Please help!

    • swimming in Phu Quoc

      Phu Quoc Oct 18, 2011 at 1:50 PM

      We will be travelling to Phu Quoc from Dec. 31, 2011 to Jan. 4, 2012. I have read reviews about the beaches in Phu Quoc that they're not all that fit to swim in (apparently there are sea lice and jellyfish that put a damper on swimming in Phu Quoc).

      As we have decided to make Phu Quoc our "tropical beach" getaway and want to spend a good chunk of time relaxing on the beach and swimming (and enjoying water sports) in the ocean, I want to ensure we can actually enjoy our time in the ocean.

      What have other VT members experienced with the ocean and swimming conditions in Phu Quoc? Is it not as ideal as I seem to have researched?

      Hey there, almost planned the honeymoon completely!

      Final question is for accommodation in Phu Quoc.

      Looking for beach bungalows, pref. with air con or fanned. A lovely beach to swim in. Tropical setting etc. Will be hiring bikes so isolation not a problem. Budget of up to200 US per night but very happy to spend less.

      So far Chen La Resort & Spa looks okay and The Mango Bay resort looks pretty good. I have heard good things about Freedomland but I like the idea of being on the beach.

      Phu Quoc, Nha Trang or another destination?

      We'll visit Vietnam next turn of the year. After a short tour (Saigon, Cu Chi, Cai Rang, Mekong delta) we want to a spend beach holiday. Which resort would you recommend? Although we want to enjoy beutiful, sandy beaches, infrastructure is very important, because we want to party at night. That's why I originally tended to go to Nha Trang. Unfortunately I researched, that late december/early January is a bad season to go there beacuse of a high chance of rain and due to lack of sun hours. Should we change our destination and go for Phu Quoc? Are there other worthwhile alternatives?

      Thanx in advance!

      I am looking for a nice hotel/guesthouse in Phu Quoc that I can stay at with my family (two kids 7 and 10). I have read about many great places: Mango Bay (despite TripAdvisor's bad reviews) and Tropicana. Unfortunately none of these places have television. Are TVs in rooms an oddity in Phu Quoc?
      I need one (or at least rather close access to one) as we plan to stay over Xmas holidays and there are vital footie matches on at that time that MUST be watched.
      Does Mango Bay have a bar with a television at least..?
      If TVs in hotel rooms are not common, are there bars where games are shown that are close by hotels/guesthouses?

I hear on many info websites that the rainiest time is October, but we have planned our trip to be in Phu Quoc from October 21-25 this fall. Is that a bad plan? Should we find an alternative beach/island somewhere off the eastern coast of Vietnam to ensure better weather? Or is Phu Quoc totally worth it and is it great no matter the season?

      Also, could someone please tell me decidedly whether we should risk buying the plane tickets ahead of time and have it be canceled, or should we take the fast boat from the coast?
