Visa By Mail

Posted by travelsalone on 1/4/2006 at 06:43

I discovered that it is possible to send for a visa by mail, but the application says this: "Name, address of your contact in Vietnam: (organization or individual)" Does anyone know if this means I must have a specific place to go initially, and that I cannot just state tourist, or something similar? I have written to the Vietnamese Embassy but have not yet received a response. Thanks, or thanks anyway! ...

Halong Bay Tour

Posted by clouie on 15/3/2006 at 13:29

Is it easy to book a Halong Bay Tour once in Hanoi? I inquired over the internet and the agent wanted to charge $360 US per person for a 3 night tour. Will this be cheaper if I try and book it once I'm there? I'm afraid $360 is not within my budget. I don't think I paid over $30 for the Mekong Delta Tour a couple of years ago. ...
