Hey everyone, i am traveling to Vietnam in November with my girlfriend and would like to know if we should pre-book tours/ transport before we leave?
I have read almost everything i can find on TP about Vietnam and southeast asia and most people suggest that we should wait till we are there so we can compare prices and find the best deal, especially in places like Halong bay.
We have a friend who is from vietnam and will be traveling with us for some of the time. He keeps trying to book stuff for us and saying that he is worried we wont be able to do what we want if we dont pre-book, because november is the busiest time for traveling.
What is your advice?
Is it true that we may miss out on some stuff because it will be to busy if we dont pre-book?
We would like to keep our trip fairly open, so that we can decide when we get there. This is becoming hard with our well meaning friend harassing us. I have a feeling this is just Vietnamese hospitality but is there anyway to let him down nicely and without hurt feelings?
Any info or advice would be much appreciated
thanks in advance, Isaac and Christie
