    • Sol Beach House Phu Quoc

      Phu Quoc Dec 19, 2016 at 11:19 AM

      Anyony who knows something about Sol Beach House Phu Quoc? I found this hotel on Hotels.com and I think it looks really nice. The price was also very good. But after looking at the pictures for a while, I realized that the pictures was not real.

      I suppose it´s because the hotel is not finished, but I can´t find so much information about the hotel. Anyone with some information?

      Vietnam Jan 7, 2017 at 12:44 AM

      Hi All

      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

      Fly to

      Luang Prabang - 6 nights

      Fly to

      Siem Reap - 7 nights

      Fly to

      Phnom Penh - 7 nights

      Boat to

      HCMC - 5 nights

      Fly to

      Hoi An - 5 nights

      Hue - 5 nights

      Fly to

      Hanoi and Halong Bay - 3 nights

      Or maybe skip Hue and spend more time in Hanoi/Halang Bay/SAPA?

      Thanks for your input.

      Regards

      Vaccinations for South African citizens

      Vietnam Jan 7, 2017 at 12:22 AM

      Hi all

      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?

      Regards

      Johann

      HOI AN OR NHA TRANG OR ELSEWHERE

      Hoi An Aug 31, 2016 at 12:04 PM

      Hi, WE land in H C M C at the end of February next year. Our plans are to spend a few days there and then move on.
      We are really flexible about travel, ie bus plane or train. We have looked at Nha Trang and Hoi An, to spend about seven days there before returning back to H C M C for our outbound flight.
      Ideally we are after sunny climate, no rain,,,,Nice beaches nice clean seas to swim.
      So whats the best Nha Trang or Hoi An..
      We enjoy lazing on beaches,,, beachside food stalls,,, a little bit of nightlife and a little bit of unspoilt village life not to far away...
      Any suggestions...
      many thanks

      is it for us?

      Hoi An Jun 13, 2015 at 3:32 AM

      First off I was looking at Da Dang but now after some feedback Hoi An has been recommended to us.

      What we like
      would be going for 3 weeks
      like to lounge about the pool through the day
      go for lunch and a beer
      some tours to break it up
      go out at night for dinner and beer
      not so young now, like the choice of having a quit beer and moving on to a livelier area.

      would you recommend Hoi An to us for what we want?

      Thanks

It isn't too big and looks like it would give us the feel of the place. So many to choose from. Any recommendations please? Would like to get some clothes made too so would be good to be handy to town. What experiences have you had and ideas would be welcomed, thanks!

      We will be in Hoi An on Dec. 24 and 25, 2011. I am trying to book accommodations and find that some hotels (like Ancient House Resort and Hai An Pacific) are charging a mandatory X-mas Eve and X-mas dinner fee of around35 USD per person. Does anyone know whether this will be standard with all hotels of similar standard to the above mentioned hotels for X-mas (ie. should I give up on trying to find a hotel that doesn't charge this surcharge)?

      I really don't want to pay for this dinner, as we would rather just get a bowl of pho to celebrate X-mas in Vietnam!
