    Now I am planning to pruchase a Halong Bay tour from Sinh Cafe. Now they are asking us to transfer to money. However their bank account is not from Vietnam; it is from Commenwealth Bank of Australia under Mr ERIC TRUNG CANG TRAN. I book this tour from http://www.sinhcafevn.com. Is this real Sinh Cafe? Anyone ever transfer money to this bank?

    it's quite common for agents to ask for a transfer for such trips - or your credit card details... there is another post on here about which is the original sinhcafe

    Hi Chrispyrolls,

    Thank for the advice. However the bank is at Australia instead of Vietnam?

    Hi, You do have the correct url (and sinhcafe) so you should be fine - perhaps they use an international bank for tourists? ... i'm jst guessing there tho

    If you have time book your trip in Vietnam, make sure you go to the right office tho...

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    To all:

    Mr Eric Trung Cang Tran is the son of the Sinhcafe's owner.
    They've got Trung Cang hotel in Dalat city.
    He studied in Melbourne and just back to VietNam.

    Please note that Sinhcafe has changed its name to TheSinhTourist.
