If it is better to have one made here, in HCMC, is there anyone who would like to come help me pick out fabric and meet with a tailor? I just got in yesterday, and my Vietnamese is nil.

      Is mid February a good time to visit Hanoi and Halong Bay.... We are desperate to visit Halong but only really at the best time....
      Will it be chilly in the morning and evening in Hanoi and Halong, will it be misty / rainy / windy.....
      We do appreciate that nobody can forecast the weather but it would be useful to have first hand experience of previous weathers in Feb..... We have checked the various web sites on climate and weathers in the area and are tempted to go further south.... Please somebody advise us that Feb is a good time to go.....

      5 days in HCMC

      Ho Chi Minh City Mar 29, 2014 at 9:13 AM

      Hey there :)

      I'm from Ha Noi and will be in HCMC for several days for a business trip. Do you have any recommendations for places to visit, foods to eat when I have limited time in the city? (I will have to work from 9 a.m until 6 p.m, so I can just discover the city in the evening).

      And are there any big events happening from 18th to 22rd April?

      Your opinions and comments would be greatly appreciated!

      By the way, I would love to catch up with people whilst I'm staying there so if anyone wants to catch up for a coffee, a sightsee, anything really let me know :)

      Obtaining Cambodia visa em HCMC

      Ho Chi Minh City Mar 25, 2014 at 11:16 AM

      So, I will be in Ho Chi Minh from Friday to Sunday, and I am trying to understand if it's possible to get a same day visa for Cambodia in a consulate. Yes, I know about the e-visa, I am just not fond of the concept. Yes, I know there is VOA in land borders, I am just not sure if the secondary bus company connecting Can Tho with PP will let me board without a visa and, of course, if I take care of it in the consulate that means least chances of "troubles" dealing with the border staff.

    • How would you spend 4 days and 4 nights in Hanoi and Halong Bay?

      Hanoi Mar 3, 2014 at 9:01 PM

      Hello everyone. I am a single male traveler who will divide my 4 days and 4 nights in Hanoi and Halong Bay.

      I have read many posts of Hanoi and Halong Bay. Most people say they disliked Hanoi because it is very noisy and has annoying traffic. However, most reports say that 2 days and 1 night in Halong Bay is more than enough.

      If you would have 4 days and 4 nights, how would you divide your visit?

      A.  Would you spend 1Day/2Night in Hanoi and 3Days/2Nights in Halong Bay? or 

      B.  Would you stay 2Days/3Nights in Hanoi and 2Days/1Night in Halong Bay?

      If you have experienced a Halong Bay cruise for 3Days/2night, Did the cruise sailed different places on the second day and night? Did the captain took a different route to show different landmarks?

      My decision would be made on the responses I get from this forum. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. cool
