    • 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

    • Getting to Cat Ba island

      Cat Ba Aug 28, 2015 at 8:53 PM

      We heard that this is lovely, but a tour operator/travel agency we've been communicating with in Hanoi wrote the following: "Cat Ba island is unrecommended because it’s almost for local people only."
      Why would they say this? Can you recommend a tour that includes Cat Ba?

    • left mobile telephone in Cat Ba

      Cat Ba May 2, 2014 at 3:22 AM

      We left our mobile telephone in the hotel in Cat Ba. The hotel (of which we don't know the name) was situated at the left end of the promenade almost opposite the bridge where the fishermen are (if you are with your back to the water). Next to it was a bigger hotel with balcony rooms. Our hotel had water views, but no balconys. The people did not speak English, they had a baby. Outside their place were a lot a big glass bottles with yellow liquid in, and some substance (dried food?or flowers? inside). There were a lot of these bottles outside. Our mobile Phone was a Polaroid one, the cable for uploading and little cotton bag was left there too. We are looking for someone who could go to this place and find out whether they have found it, and give them our email-address so that they can contact us (serenabeligum@hotmail.com) It would be nice if somebody could help us. Lots of thanks beforehand,
      Jan and Lieve Van Coillie-Lams from Belgium
