    Hi,

    I'm coming to Hanoi via Madrid, and I'm planning on being in Vietnam for a few weeks before finally going home to the USA.

    I wasn't planning on going to SEA when I first came to Spain, so I have a large suitcase that I will be taking with me.

    What are my storage options while I travel around the country? I don't want to lug my suitcase around with me.

    Someone told me some hotels will hold onto my bag for me. Is this a legit option? Which hotels?

    Thank you for your help.

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    I think you'll be best off trying the smaller, cheaper hotels. Nearly all of them are family run and very accommodating. Part of the key would be to stay at the hotel for at least a couple days before you expected them to agree. Every hotel here seems to have one or more luggage rooms, and I'd think that a 2-week storage of a large bag would be simple and free as long as you actually stayed at the place for a few days overall.

    I've stayed in a long series of hotels in Vietnam for the past 4 months and I'm sure any of them would have agreed to that if I was a customer and paid for a few days. People here are very friendly to Westerners and they really do seem to try to impress us.

    The problem with leaving luggage at a hotel is that very few put the luggage in a locked facility - most hotels just stash luggage in the corner of the lobby. I do believe that the larger train stations all have Left Luggage services. There are services that will forward luggage to any city in the world (for a price).
