  • Train is considered a cheap and safe way to travel at night. We can help you purchase night train tickets to save time for your trip.
  • Boats are popular when taking Halong Bay Cruise and Mekong Cruise. Contact us for a qualified cruise with safe boats and experienced crews.

At the moment, there is no mandatory requirement for vaccinations before entering Vietnam unless travelers arrive from the Yellow Fever zone (South American & African countries). However, be careful and check your health record and make sure that you are inoculated against at least those diseases: Typhoid, Tetanus, Polio and Hepatitis. Bear in mind that there is a possibility of malaria risks in a few rural areas of Vietnam. Ensure that you contact your hospitals and take medical advices for your children no less than two months before your trip.

We used 220V, 50Hz and 2 and 3-pin electricity socket. Most hotels will provide electric outlets which accept many plug shapes. Universal travel adaptors are needed if you travel with many devices.

Wifi connection is relatively good in hotels, coffee shops and restaurants in Vietnam, especially in big cities. Take advantage of free wifi to contact your family and friends through Skype, Viber or Whatsapp.

However, if you travel to rural areas where wifi is not good, we highly recommend you purchase a SIM Card in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City for internet service. It is easy to find a Viettel and Vinaphone official store in the city center or at the airport. Check with us then we will prepare a free SIM Card for you.

In tourist destinations like Hanoi, Da Nang, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City, people can speak English in a decent level. However, when traveling to rural areas, it is advisable to download some translation apps to your smartphone so that you will not encounter any language barrier.

We highly recommend obtaining international travel insurance. By having an international coverage you do not need to worry about emergencies that can happen anytime, anywhere, before or during your travels such as having to rush home to a family member or having a tour changed or canceled because of a natural disaster.
