We are leaving for Vietnam on 11 January 2017. We arrive in Hanoi on 12 January 2017 and depart from Hanoi on 26 February 2017.
So far I have only booked a hotel in Hanoi for 7 nights. The rest of the itinerary is still flexible.
I need some suggestions and comments and recommendations from your experiences as to possible changes to cities being visited, number of days and other cities to be visited, etc.
Hanoi - 7 nights
Luang Prabang - 6 nights
Siem Reap - 7 nights
Phnom Penh - 7 nights
HCMC - 5 nights
Hoi An - 5 nights
Hue - 5 nights
Hanoi and Halong Bay - 3 nights
Or maybe skip Hue and spend more time in Hanoi/Halang Bay/SAPA?
Thanks for your input.
We are a couple from Cape Town leaving for Vietnam on 11 January 2017 entering through Hanoi.
We have been reading a lot about vaccines recommended and get conflicting stories.
According to the website www.dirco.gov.za (dated 27 November 2013):
"There is a risk of malaria in non-urban areas. Hepatitis A & B immunisations are recommended (Dengue fever or DHF). There is no immunization against DHF. It is strongly recommended that comprehensive travel and health insurance be obtained which would include emergency air evacuation by a recognised carrier. Prospective travellers should check with their insurer to make sure that their policy meets their needs."
CDC again recommends that:
"most travellers" get travel vaccines and medicines for Hepatitis A, Typhoid and that "some travellers" get vaccines for Japanese Encephalitis. They even warn They also warn about the Zika virus.
I personally have travelled to many parts of the world and have never taken any vaccines before but my partner is concerned.
Can anybody please shed some light on the subject?
Traveling from London Single guy 43 yrs on first visit to Vietnam , looking for a nice relaxed pampered holiday , but at the same time want to see all the tourist attractions with regards the war etc.
Want a nice luxury hotel but at the same time that wont cost a fortune, preferably looking for relaxed night life , not mad busy touristy areas , prefer to stay away from big crowds etc,
