      To enjoy perhaps 10 days in CHAD

      Chad Jan 11, 2017 at 3:39 PM

      My wife and me (around 70 y.o.) want to visit the more beautiful of this big country: probably Ennedi Plateau, perhaps the Zakouma NP... Please, may you advise about the places to visit? Which local Tours are the best? Do you think to do this travel is too hard or difficult? We live in Europe (Barcelona, Spain): to arrange the visa and papers need a lot of time? Last question. We will try to visit also the close country: Cameroon. Is it possible to cross this border?.

      Thanks for any advice!

      Mombassa Apr 5, 2011 at 2:57 AM


      I am thinking of going to Diani beach in the next couple of weeks or so. There is limited availability left so was wondering whether to just pick a cheaper hotel and eat out once I got there. Does anyone know what prices are like to eact out in Diani, whether there is a wide range of places to eat/drink and what the weather will be like in April. I have heard it rains but wasnt sure this was more related to going on a safari. Thank you

      Going to Saigon

      Saigon Feb 16, 2008 at 9:13 AM

      I'm taking about a 10 day trip and want to visit Bangkok and Saigon. I was stationed at Tan Son Nhut (1966-68) and would like to go onto the base to take pictures and see what its like since the 40 years since I left. Is there any problems getting onto the base? Is it a "controlled area"?? Are the barracks and buildings still standing? And I would like to stay in a safe hotel but not expensive. Any suggestions? I would also like to join a tour leaving from LAX to save money. Travel dates are still open but I want to go within the next 3 months or so.

      Anyone familiar with the Phu Tho area of Saigon?

      Saigon Apr 20, 2007 at 12:13 PM

      I will be in Saigon the month of May and would like to find the location I was stationed at in 1970. The name of the unit was RCG and it was located a couple blocks off of a street called Plantation Road. It consisted of about a half dozen buildings. There was a Catholic church nearby, the steeple of which could be seen from the rooftops of the taller buildings at RCG. It was about 1 mile from the Phu Tho Race Track, going toward Tan Son Nhut off the right hand side. There was also a BEQ on Plantation Road called the Montana and also a Navy relocation building, both within a few blocks of RCG. I believe the name of Plantation Road may now be Nguyen Van Thoai. If anyone is familiar with the area and thinks they may be of help, I would appreciate it.

      I need a general consensus

      Djamena Mar 18, 2003 at 9:53 PM

      I have been mulling over the creation of a N’Djamena travel page for some time now, and I thought I had reached a decision. However, as I was reviewing my materials (photos), I noticed that I am holding a weapon in every picture. Most of the pictures I have of N’Djamena are of me standing in front of some building or are of a group of locals and I together, and I fear the presence of an M-16 A2 Rifle in these pictures may lead some of you to conjure images of a hostile city. I don’t want to offend anyone with the graphic nature of these pictures, and I feel they may do Chad a great disservice if they are posted. Does anyone else feel my pictures maybe unsuitable for the VT community? Should I create this page or not? Please, I need some advice.
