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. ...

Vietnam in two weeks

Posted by fire_lily81 on 10/4/2006 at 13:14

I'm planning to start at Hanoi and end at Hi Chi Minh and cover these routes: Hanoi - Halong Bay - Ninh Binh - Hoi An - Nha Trang - Dalat - Ho Chi Minh City How do I get from one place to the other? Should I opt for open tour bus?

I know that train route is possible from from Hoi An to Nha Tran ...

5 Days in Vietnam

Posted by Mia on 30/3/2006 at 00:18

Hello. I managed to arrange for 5 days in Vietnam. I will be travelling solo, therefore, the whole planning is very flexible other than the fixed number of travel days. This is my situation at the moment - I have the choice to either fly in Hanoi, or Saigon. I definitely will visit Hanoi and I'm not for the touristy tours, but a nice soak in the local culture/sights/arts. I am just considering if it is wise to visit Saigon as well, in this duration. Here are few enquiries if anyone can help, ...

Racism in Ho Chi Minh City

Posted by ironmonkey on 10/3/2006 at 19:48

Through another message board, I've become aware of Racism at Hotels in HCMC. It appears that some Vietnamese hotel owners are refusing accomodation to black people. I was in Vietnam last summer and as a mixed raced (Jamaican/English) person I cannot say I experience any overt racism. However, I did notice that there were quite a few black africans hanging out in the backpacker areas of HCMC. Whilst travelling down Vietnam's coast, I hadn't seen a single black face so I asked an Aussie, who ...
