The city center itself is actually still called Saigon as you will be seeing in signs everywhere.

Saigon has an ideal layout to explore on foot. It is a city of contrasts, you can wander through beautiful lanes and avenues with colonial French architecture but also explore flashy skyscrapers and luxury malls. Most people in Saigon will use a moped for transportation, these are omnipresent and will present a particular challenge when trying to cross the street. For lunch we will of course select a nice restaurant with great vegan food. You are also free to choose your own place to have lunch.

The second day in Saigon is free for you to do whatever you want. Your tour leader can assist you by making recommendations for places to visit, ranging from temples, parks, malls or museums.

Travel companions

In some cases Samsara Vegan Travels can decide to confirm the departure, even if the required minimum number of travelers has not been reached.

Money

The Vietnamese currency is the Dong. Money can be obtained by exchanging euros or dollars at banks, exchange offices or in the hotel. Credit cards are also widely accepted. Taking money from cash machines is also possible, especially in larges cities, with a debit card with Maestro or Cirrus symbol.

We recommend to bring with you a smaller amount of cash in euros or dollars for emergency purposes and to take out most of the money on arrival. You can best do this immediately after arrival at the airport or near the hotel. If possible bring an additional credit and/or debit card for unexpected expenses or emergencies.

Travel documents

You are required to have a passport that is valid for at least six months after departure from Vietnam.

For obtaining a tourist visa for Vietnam you have two options:

Option 1: Apply for a visa at the Vietnamese embassy in your country. You can do this directly by visiting the Vietnamese Embassy's website and filling out or downloading the appropriate forms or by using one of many commercial visa offices you can find online. More information about what type of visa you need, and the costs involved, you can use the following link for Vietnam Visa. Please ensure yourself of the through time for this application, we recommend to submit your request at least 4 weeks before departure. For travelers who reside in The Netherlands, forms can be found at Visumcentrale.

Option 2: Get your visa on arrival at the airport in Vietnam (Visa on arrival). This is the easiest and cheapest way to obtain your visa. Keep in mind though that you have to queue at the airport, which can take more than an hour at busy times. You can apply for your visa on arrival using the following link.

As a traveler you are responsible for having the right travel documents.

Climate

The climate in Vietnam is very dependent on where you are, because the country is elongated, there can be big differences between the north and south. The rainy season runs from May till October but it rarely rains all day, the rain is often limited to 1 to 2 hours a day. The climate in the north is subtropical, in the south it is tropical. In October and December typhoons can occur with abundant rainfall, this may possibly affect the itinerary.

Climate Hanoi

 

 

 

 

Transport

Most local transport is done by a private bus. Keep in mind that this is Vietnam and levels of comfort can deviate from what you are used to in your country, caused by factors such as road conditions, weather and local customs. As Vietnam is a very long stretched country, distance are quite long between destinations. This will result in some long days of driving, but we will make plenty of stops for photographs, stretching the legs and possible attractions. To give you an impression of the distances we will be covering, have a look at the table below. Driving times do not include stops.

Vietnam distances and driving times

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the Mekong delta we will make use of local boats that will transport us around the canals.

The boat we will use to explore Halong Bay might be shared with other tourists, depending on the size of our group.

If an overnight train is included in the itinerary, we will try to arrange 4-person couchettes, if available. Because train tickets can only be bought 60 days before departure, and preference is given to travelers that take the entire stretch from Saigon to Hanoi, this cannot be guaranteed. We will inform travelers as soon as possible if the train will be included in the itinerary.

Luggage

From a practical point of view, it is best not to bring a hard suitcase, these do not fit well in the luggage compartments of the bus and train (if applicable). The best is to bring a backpack or flexible holdall. Take a careful look at what you want to bring with you, experience shows that you usually have too much with you. You do have to carry your own bag from the bus to the hotel, so do not make it too heavy.

Evenings in Vietnam can be a bit chilly, especially in the northern regions, pack something warm to wear or use several layers of clothing.
In Buddhist temples, access is not permitted with bare shoulders and knees, dress appropriately.

Accommodation

The hotels are comfortable and all have private bathrooms and usually air conditioning. Because the exact accommodation can vary depending on the date and group size, we do not send a list. As a general example, rooms will look something like this (no swans were harmed for this photo):

Prices for this journey are based on shared rooms. If you are a single traveler we will put you in room with another traveler of the same sex, if available. If no other traveler of the same sex is available at the time of booking, we will put you on a waiting list till another single traveler is available. Rooms are generally fitted with two single beds, unless otherwise requested. If you would like to have your own room, this is possible for an additional fee of € 350,- for the 21 day travel. For the 9 and 12 day travels the additional fee is € 185,- or € 195,- respectively.

If you would like to arrive 1 or more days early, or would like to extend you stay after the tour has ended we can arrange a room for you in the hotel we are using for the tour. The daily rate for this is € 38,- for Saigon,  € 40,- for Hoi An and € 40,- for Hanoi. This rate includes the occupancy for 1 or 2 people, and breakfast. For booking extra nights, you can use the section 'extra nights' in our booking form.
