      MEKONG DELTA AND SOUTHERN CAMBODIA ADVICE REQUIRED

      Vietnam Apr 26, 2015 at 2:15 AM

      Hi all,
      We plan to visit Vietnam in January / February 2016, We arrive in Ho Chi Minh then plan to move onto Ha Tien followed by Cambodia, Kampot and Sihanoukville. In total we planning on about 5 weeks travel.
      We have never visited Vietnam before.
      What is the best route to take (on bus or private car) and where are good stop off points.
      We are keen to find paradise beaches that are not too touristy and also eco type trips ie wetlands, rivers jungle walks etc.
      We still have a blank canvas to work from and are also considering going direct to Phnom Penh from HCMC by boat, is this practical and worth the experience....
      Many thanks in advance

Any advice on maximising our time & cost effectively would be greatly appreciated. Did similar in Europe & it worked out well but understanding Europe is far different to Asia.

      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!

      Vietnam: Travelling from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi for +/- 3 weeks.

      Vietnam May 14, 2015 at 1:31 AM

      I am attending a conference (as a professional photographer) in Singapore, during the second week of October and afterwards want to travel to Vietnam for about 3 weeks.
      My plan would be to fly from Singapore to Ho Chi Minh, travel overland (trains/buses) north to Hanoi and from there, fly back to Singapore. When travelling I generally try to avoid tourist areas/sites and I am particularly interested in photographing local life - people just getting on with their lives, ‘street photography’. So the first place I visit in a village/town/city would be the market/local areas. I will be travelling on a fairly tight budget and will therefore seek inexpensive accommodation – hostels are OK, as long as I have my own room/facilities!
      I would therefore greatly appreciate any advice/tips/recommendations as to which places are worth visiting between Ho Chi Minh & Hanoi and the best methods (trains/buses) of travelling around.
      Many thanks,

    • Travel time from Nha Trang? (vice versa) + Canyoning tour, reviews?

      Da Lat Dec 3, 2013 at 8:13 AM

      I'll be visiting Vietnam in early February (yes I'm aware it's tet) I'm planning on leaving Nha Trang on the 10th and was originally going to get a flight to Da nang. Now I'm wondering whether it's worth spending 2 night in Dalat in order to do a canyoning tour which includes abseiling down the waterfalls. I was wandering if anyone had done this tour (groovy gecko or other company) and if you would recommend visiting Dalat mainly for this experience?
      Also a lot of people are saying 5-6 hours from Nha Trang to Dalat while others are saying there is a new road that takes 3-4 hours. The earliest the bus leaves is 7am and the latest flight from Nha Trang to Da nang is 12:10 is this a feasible amount of time to travel and arrive at airport with enough time? Would a private car be quicker and any idea of the cost?

    • Cycling from De Lat to the coast

      Da Lat Jul 5, 2009 at 4:12 AM

      Hi all

      I'm planning my trip to Vietnam - I'll be there in December for around 4 weeks and will be travelling from Chau Doc to HCMC and north to Hanoi.

      I can't make up my mind about whether to visit Dalat as it seems a bit kitsch.

      I though a good compromise might be to travel up Highway 20 from HCMC so I can pass the Dambri Falls then continue on to Delat for the night. I've read its possible to cycle from Delat to Phan Rang-Thap Cham or Nha Trang and that the ride is through beautiful scenery. ReidOnTravel.com says there's a guided cycle tour for70.

      I feel that taking this route would allow me to see a bit of the central highlands without chewing up too much time.

      My questions are:

      1. Has anyone cycled from Delat to the coast?

      2. Is it feasible and How long will it take?

      3. Can it be done independently as the guided tour option seems expensive and if so how much would bile hire be?

      Thanks so much for any help!

    • Da Lat - Nha Trang via Open tour bus - any overnight buses?

      Da Lat Mar 19, 2008 at 5:27 AM

      Hi!
      I want to go from Da Lat to Nha Trang. From what I gather from my internet research, there seems to be only open tour buses that leave around 0700 to 0800 in the mornings, depending on the agency and then arrive in the afternoon at Nha Trang.

      Does anyone know if there are any open tour buses available that are overnight? Because I don't want to spend too much time travelling in the day.

      Please advise! Thanks in advance! :)

    • Water Falls!!! Which not worth? How much time needed for each Falls?

      Da Lat Jun 18, 2007 at 9:32 AM

      There are so many nice falls that i wanna visit all! but i only have 1.5days and i wanna visit other DaLat Attractions too.

      1. Prenns Falls (am excited of the chance to walk through the 'water curtain')
      2. Datanla Falls (Luge Ride)
      3. Dambri Falls (one of the highest)
      4. Pongour Falls (100m semi circle wide, layered falls)
      5. Tiger Falls (some say this is the most impressive)

      can anyone help me to comment on each of the falls? rank them if you wish. how much time would i need to spend to get to each falls and time recommended to spend there?

      if i got my way, over my friends, i would go for 4 if not 5 of those. haha. by the way, i will be travelling from Saigon to Dalat.
