The mark of Vietnam on worldwide tourism map:

  • Eating may be one of life’s necessities, but in Vietnam it’s one of its greatest pleasures, too. There are so many foods to try here, and like everything else, it’s all incredibly cheap.” – Thewanderblogger
  • Graceful, historic Hoi An is Vietnam’s most atmospheric and delightful town. Once a major port, it boasts the grand architecture and beguiling riverside setting that befits its heritage, and the 21st-century curses of traffic and pollution are almost entirely absent.” – Lonelyplanet
  • Ha Long Bay sits off Vietnam’s northeastern coast, and has incredibly serene emerald waters that are home to multiple small limestone islands covered by rain forests. It’s a popular spot for boat tours and cave explorers, and no trip to Vietnam would be complete without seeing it.”  – Businessinsider

 We were nervous and worried since this was our first time to visit Vietnam, and also my first tour overseas at first. 

Our trip was arranged by Ryan Mac of travel sense Asia, and this is one of the reasons why we Chose Travel Sense in the first place. Ryan was kind, nice and really patient throughout the process of ‘organizing’ our trip (since this was our first trip overseas to country we never set foot of) since we ‘demand’ sooo many things beforehand 😀 

But in the end all worries and nervous-ness were transformed into Joy and Excitements. Everything was well planned & memorable for all of us. We didn’t have to worry about anything. Vietnam is a beautiful country with many historical places (thanks to our tour Guide to pointing out this), natural beauty, strong culture and delicious food … very delicious signature Vietnamese food. Read more

Useful information for travel in Vietnam and Cambodia

What’s the difference between 3, 4, and 5 -star hotels?

We usually arrange centrally-located and Western-standard hotels. Five-star hotels are usually palatial with huge lobbies and comfortable rooms, their standards not quite matching the best of Paris or New York, but very close. Four-star hotels have quality facilities, but not as luxurious as five-star hotels. Three-star hotels meet the needs of most Westerners, but breakfasts have less choice. We also recommend some courtyard hotels or Vietnamese-style hotels with local features and architecture. These hotels have a good ranking, or positive feedback from our customers, and TripAdvisor. Usually, hotels in big cities, small cities, and rural areas are a bit different, even if they have the same star level. We try to use the best available hotel in each place.

Passport & Visa Requirements

You may be required for visa to Vietnam and Cambodia. Please check the list of countries which need visa to Vietnam and Cambodia in this links: Who need visa to Vietnam? Vietnam Visa is issued by Vietnam Embassy in your country or “Visa on arrival”. Travel Sense Asia will offer free visa to Vietnam for you (except some difficult countries). Cambodia visa can be issued upon arrival at the airport or border gate. You will need one clear page (per visa) in a full passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of your departure from Vietnam or Cambodia.

Currency Exchange

Vietnam – The Vietnamese Dong is the local currency.

As currency exchange rates in Vietnam fluctuate, we suggest you refer to the following website for daily exchange rates: www.xe.com or www.vietcombank.com In 2015 the USD & VND has been around 22.500VND per USD. There are many ATM machines that accept both Visa and Master card, but these are limited to cities. We also recommend the use of cash and travelers checks in USD currency. Major credit cards are accepted in most shops, but they may charge a 2–4% transaction fee.

Cambodia – The Cambodian Riel is the local currency.

In tourist areas U.S. currency in widely accepted in cities. It is best to carry both Cambodian and U.S. currency in small denominations. Credit cards can generally be used at hotels, but smaller business may not accept them or may charge a service fee for their use. It is recommended to carry cash in small denominations in local currency or in US $1 bills to make tipping and minor expenses easier. It is recommended to carry new or like new banknotes as older, torn or poor condition notes may not be accepted locally.

Tipping

It is customary to tip service providers in the travel industry in Asia, depending on the service. Tipping is expected — though not compulsory — and shows an expression of satisfaction with the people who have assisted you on your tour. Recommendations for tipping drivers (3 USD per person per day as a guideline) and local guides (8 USD per person per day as a guideline) would depend on the quality and length of the service. In additionally, you will sometimes use rolling boat, cyclo riding, porter which you should give a small tip to these local people.

Food

Eating is an important part of your Vietnam experience. Generally, breakfasts are included in the itinerary and offered by hotels. Travel Sense Asia recommend local Vietnam restaurants that are popular with local people for lunch. You can order dishes with the help of your guide. We usually leave dinner for your own choice — Western food can be found in most large cities. If you are vegetarian or you are looking for e.g. halal food, please feel free to inform your travel advisor, who can arrange a restaurant to fit your needs.

While it is generally safe to eat fully cooked meats and vegetables, care should be taken to avoid undercooked meat and uncooked fruits and vegetables. Because tap water is not potable, visitors should only drink bottled water or water that has been boiled and filtered. Avoid ice, as it is usually made from tap water.
