Vietnam Hotel,Flight and Location Guide
5th December, 2008
I have travelled to Vietnam several times and have Vietnamese foster family,my Sis is in HCMC. Even for me though it is a headache to locate where hotels are and where street locations are? I am leaving for Vietnam this saturday for 5 weeks,and have found travelfish very helpful,so I join to help others if I can?
1. Finally found a way to locate addresses in Vietnam and hotel locations,and in English..^_* My Sis finally cracked it..it is called www.diadiem.com,a Vietnamese 'Melways' so to speak. She wanted me to get a hotel near her house and this showed her location and hotels nearby. It has other data also,very handy!
2. Western Hotel booking sites usually charge more,I never book through them,it costs me just a phone card and I call the hotels directly,and they usually speak English. I have had all my hotel booking honoured so far. You can also word search for 'khach san' & location to get Viet sites for some hotels and their 'local' prices. It is not perfect,but it is worth the chance for cheaper rates if you look for VND prices. I do know Vietnamese Hotel sites,some better than others,but will look at latter.
3. Vietnam Airlines has for domestic flights their prices on their website,do not book in Western country as more expensive,check their flight schedules and fees on their internet site,and book in Vietnam direct. Jetstar has taken over Pacific Airlines,and have cheaper prices than Vietnam Airlines even. They do not share all same routes,so maybe mix and match flights with open bus say,for best fares.
I hope this is helpful?
