My first post on this forum! Done some travelling before in Thailand with a group of friends. Due to circumstances now I am looking to head out to Asia- Vietnam on my lonesome come beggining of October time. As im going on my own im having to organise it all myself. I find it quite daunting and im looking to make a list of things to organise before I go. Obviously my flights an a place to stay when I get there, thinking pre booking it before i go.Would love some suggestions from some more seasoned travellers!
How many days are you going to be in VN? Arrival city? Departure city? Visa? What is your budget for this holiday? Prefer: beach time, cultural sites, off the beaten path, shopping? All the above? Give us a few details and and members will have a better idea of what to suggest.
My blog covers VN from Nha Trang to HCMC. My photo gallery covers from HaNoi to the delta. Good luck with your planning.
Looking at going in Oct and possibley starting in Hanoi and then trying to plana a route from there. Looking for a bit of culture and sights but some beach action too. Thinking of maybe staying there for a month or two then heading on. Got my whole travel budget at around 4500, and plane tickets will need to come out of that. With travelling im looking to meet people as i will be on my own but also see lots too, so dont neccesarily want to stick to travel ghettos! thanks for the help!
