      Public transport to get around the city

      Hanoi Oct 11, 2016 at 4:06 AM

      I am moving to Hanoi in a couple of weeks for work and will need to get around fairly quickly to different areas (teaching in different language centres). I was wondering if the buses are fairly easy and stress free to use a couple of times a day to get around, because I reeeeally don't want to get a bike. Thanks!

    • Halong Bay to Hanoi Airport - Day cruise Halong

      Vietnam Oct 10, 2016 at 3:22 PM

      Has anyone traveled from Halong Bag to Hanoi Airport by car?

      If so, how long did it take you?
      Was there much traffic?

      We have a domestic flight at 21:15, and we can be in Halong on the same day at 11:30 the latest by car.

      So are not sure, when we are there if we have time for a cruise and for the trip back to the airport by 19:30 latest so we can catch the flight at 21:15.

      Thanks in advance

      Hi there We are from Cape Town, South Africa and are planning a trip to Vietnam in December 2016 for about 7 weeks. We are wondering whether to visit the neighbouring countries of Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia as well. We have been to Thailand (Bangkok and Phuket) before but would like to maybe spent some time there in a place we haven't been before. We would like to stay at least 5 days in one place so we would like to select the best places. We would appreciate your advice as to an which cities and towns to visit and the itinerary. If we have to miss 1 or 2 countries, which one's would you suggest. We will arrive and depart from Hanoi. Possible cities to visit include: Hanoi Hue Ho Chi Minh Siem Reap Phnom Penh Vientiane Luang Prabang Hanoi Thanks in advance. Have a good day. Johann

      Visa from Indian Embassy in HCMC

      Ho Chi Minh City Oct 20, 2016 at 10:26 PM

      Hi there, I'm a UK citizen and I had my passport and wallet stolen in HCMC. I've now got an emergency passport and am in the process of getting all the visas I need for my onward journey.

      However I'm a bit confused... My flight back to the UK involves a one and a half hour stop over in Delhi to change planes. On the UK gov site it says that people travelling on an ETD ( emergency passport) need a visa and TWO ETD's - one to enter Delhi and one to leave Delhi. I'm having trouble finding out if this is true as I've had no reply to my emails and can't get through on the phone to the Indian Embassy. Can anyone help?

    • My Tho too touristy?

      My Tho Mar 5, 2016 at 10:10 AM


      I'm leaving for my first trip to Vietnam next week :-). I read a review which stated: "the trip to My Tho is nothing but a tourist trap " - and it's not a real experience, as it is all created for tourists.

      What is your reply & thoughts to that? If you agree, are there 2D,1N Mekong Delta tours that skip this and still remain very good?

      My Tho Nov 30, 2013 at 7:06 AM

      Approximately how much would a taxi (for two persons) cost from Ho Chi Minh Airport to central My Tho? We will be landing at a time when the last bus of the day has already gone.

      Anybody has any recommendations for a budget guesthouse in My Tho?
      Say maybe5-10USD per night?
