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...
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?

would be greatly appreciated.
We are a family of 4 with two adult children. Is there any accommodation that has 2 or 3 bedroom suits?
WE have 5 nights in Hoi An but only 4 days. We aren't worried about being by the beach as we have too much to see and do while there. We were looking at the Little Hoian Boutique Hotel and Spa. 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!

Hi, does anyone know if the Minh A, ancient lodging house is still open at 2 Nguyen Thai Hoc. It is a very old guest house which I believe has only 3 rooms.

I am looking for reviews on a hotel called Bach Dang. Should I assume that no reviews means no good news?
anybody know the date for the full moon festival in Hoi An for Feb 2013?

Is the water in late December warm enough to swim and generally romp about in?
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!

I am planning my first trip to Vietnam in July, staying at Hoi An and I have read with interests all the posts about tailors, but alot of them are getting old and I was wondering if anybody had recent dealings with specific tailors, and wouldn't mind letting me know who to avoid, and who to see. Thanks

WE HAVE 9 NIGHTS TO ENJOY A SIDE TRIP FROM SAIGON BEFORE WE FLY HOME (WILL HAVE DONE A CRUISE FROM SEAM REAP TO SAIGON). ARE TRYING TO DECIDE IF IT'S WORTH GOING TO DALAT OR HUE BEFORE WE SPEND THE REST OF OUR TIME IN HOI AN AND POSSIBLY ONE OTHER PLACE (HAVE HEARD MUI NE (think that's the name) is a nice small place??
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - including hotels, restaurants, things to see, do and buy!! Also which is the best airline if we decide to fly to Dalat or Hue (I've heard the trains aren't so good).
We are "older" travellers who like smaller hotels that are friendly, have a pool, comfortable and maybe even a view...probably because we are retired from work but not from travelling.
Thanks and I'm standing by for hints and advice.
Can anyone recommend a few good quality tailor shops in Hoi An. I am looking to make a couple of custom tailored suits.
