    • Nordvietnam in January

      Vietnam Nov 12, 2016 at 10:42 AM

      Hello, I would like to visit Vietnam in early January 2017 for 2 weeks and look for malarie-free areas. I would like to go to Hanoi, Halong Bay and 1 week beach holiday. In the north it should be only around 20 degrees in January. For the visit of Hanoi does not disturb. But for the beach holiday it should be warmer. The beaches north of Nha Trang are said to be malaria free. Who knows? thank you

      Vietnamese SIM card

      Vietnam Nov 19, 2016 at 10:14 PM

      Hi guys,

      I'll be in Vietnam for 18 days, travelling by land from the south (HCMC) up to the north (SaPa). I would like you to recommend me a mobile operator (SIM card) which offers a good coverage with low price. I'll only need it for light browsing and emergency calls.

      Many thanks!
      Ibra

      Sapa for 4 nights

      Sapa Nov 25, 2016 at 4:21 AM

      Hello,
      I'm planning to spend four nights in Sapa end of December. As I would love to go in daily trekking tours and would like to visit some villages around Sapa (please recommend me if you have visited any). Therefore my question is, should I book one accommodation for the all 4 nights (which means that I have to back to my accommodation at the end of the day) or is it better to spend a night in my first room and book other accommodations for the rest (which make my trekking tour as a one way tour!). Please also do advice me if you have tried any authentic and cheap homestay in Sapa or any village near to it.

      I really do appreciate your huge help guys!

      Best wishes,
      Ibrahim

      3 weeks for 3 - from Saigon to Hanoi

      Vietnam Nov 14, 2016 at 6:53 AM

      Hi everybody,
      I'm planning my trip to Vietnam in April 2016. We'll be arriving to Saigon from Siem Riep, Very probably by plane.
      Still hesitating, because I want to go to Mekong delta for a couple of days. Meanwhile I consider as my best option - flying to Saigon and going from there. Still have in mind the other option - getting from Siem Riep through Pnom Pehn by river boats. This is one of the questions for you :)
      So here is our plan by days
      1. Arriving Saigon

      2-3 Mekong delta - Is taking a tour the only possibility and what places exactly are the best (less touristic)?

      4-5 Dalat. Probably flying there. But still the question is - is it worth long and rather expensive travel just to see what? a couple of waterfalls? What do you think?
      From Dalat we'll take a bus to Nya Thrang, night traing to Danang on our way to Hoi An, where I hope to spend a couple of days -

      7-9 Hoi Ann
      10-11 Hue
      12-15 Dong Hoi - caves and 2days trek - one of our must sees!
      Last day we'll catch night train to Hanoi
      16 - Night train to Sapa
      17-20 Sapa and all possible hiking in the area.
      Last night I want to catch a bus to Halong Bay - I've heard there is a new highway and it's only 5 hrs now without entering Hanoi. Anybody heard about this new service?

      21-23 Halong Bay - not sure if I have to book from home or wait till we get to Hanoi. As usual, I want the off-the bitten-track route - or as far from the busy tourist route as possible.
      24-25 Hanoi and going home!
      ---
      This is my plan and I'll be glad to hear any critic/remarks.
      We are hiking and moving-all-the-time, not too extreme, but definitely not soaking-on-the-beach type of family, no small kids, open to any suggestions.
      Thank you beforehand

      best way to tour Cu Chi tunnels (with 2 year old) - group tour or private car?

      by crewrower Online Now Feb 1, 2014 at 8:27 PM

      Looking for recommendations. Want to go this Tuesday. Have a two year old in tote. Is the coach tour with Sinh tours a good idea? Or is it better to get a private car (if so, any recommendations?).

      vietnam discovery tour

      by philpisdaan Online Now Oct 31, 2007 at 1:19 PM

      i have booked an 18 day tour with one of the major operaters based in sydney.
      part of the tour is a trip to the cu chi tunnels. i told them i did not want to go and see war relics, fire big guns and rifles,dress up in vietcong clothes and crawl down tunnels eat wartime rations underground to relive a past war. thats really sick. they have told me that the admission fees are a part of my tour and the bus travel is pre booked also. if i elect to wander the city instead i will have to pay100 penalty for changing the tour schedule. have other travellers faced this problem

      Cu Chi - Shooting Ranges

      by Holmesboy Online Now Sep 30, 2004 at 10:49 PM

      Hello All, I was reading in the lonely planet guide something about some shooting ranges around around CuChi. I am not a sicko or anything but heard that you can fire off AK-47's, M16's etc. Does anyone have any info on this? ie Address, contact details, experiences? All comments on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
