We can highly recommend a trip to Vietnam.
Our family and friends travelled to Vietnam in April 2005 and our itinerary has been used by many people since.
Vietnam itself is a very safe, clean country and is incredibly cheap. Our 17 day trip cost approximately $2,000 per person which included airfares, accommodation and some meals, some transfers, guides/train trip to Sapa, Halong Bay junk. Meals were very cheap – US$2 bought a good meal.
We flew with Vietnam Airlines – we found them to be excellent. We generally chose to stay at 3 star hotels and found them clean and comfortable. Many included breakfast. (more…)
