Hello!

Am just looking in to travelling overland from Luang Prebang to Hanoi. Was just wondering if any of you have done this, and where I can get my visa beforehand ( if it is neccessary to get it before!). I will most likely be doing this alone...
I am starting my travels from Bangkok... so do I get my visa for Vietnam there?
Cheers!

You better get your visa before heading towards the VN border - no visa on arrival.

Go to local travel agent to get them to arrange visa.

Remember, the NEW border crossing into VN is open (just south of Dien Bien Phu) and this will get you into VN and better roads quickly.

Sorry - BANGKOK is the better place to get the visa - the visa office opens at 08.30H and they are very helpful.

Thanks for that, Daklak 2. I think I am going to fly from Bangkok to Hanoi, as it makes my life alot easier! I will definitely get my visa for Vietnam in Bangkok, so thanks again for that address!
