AVHC130303 - Timeless Vietnam March 3rd

Postby chadders » Mon Jan 14, 2013 8:05 am

Hi. My wife, Sue, and I have just booked this trip. We are a couple of young at heart 50 year olds and would love to touch base with anyone who is also on this tour or has been on it before and has any tips.

Thanks

Nick

Hi Nick,

I am not on your tour but I am considering to do either the Timeless Vietnam or the Best of Vietnam trip in late 2013, early 2014 together with my boyfriend. So I would be happy if you could tell me a bit about your trip once you get back. If you don't like to do that in the "Asia" forum of the Wateringhole I would be happy if you could sent me a personal message.

I have been to Vietnam already, I visited Hanoi, Sapa and Halong Bay in the North and Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta in the South and absolutely liked it. So if you have any questions according those places I'd be happy to help.

I really wanna go back and see more and I would like my partner who hasn't been to Vietnam yet to see it as well that's why I am considering doing one of those two tours but don't know which one yet, so opinions about those two trips are very welcome.

Cheers
Vanessa

Hi both, has your doctor advised malaria tablets? we don't have them as our GP said there was no need. But I'm the one who always attracts the bites, so would be nice to know.

Cheers

Yes, we've got malarone. I'm not sure I would have bothered but Sue does seem to be a magnet for biting things so more a belt and braces thing really. I think where we are going is not a high risk area but I don't think mosquitoes can read malaria maps! We've also got some products called 'Incognito' which is deet free but seems to get good reviews. We were sold it by the founder of the company at a travel show in Manchester and as well as the usual sprays you can get shower gels, after sun and the like. This will be our first try of it however.
