Exactly a year ago, in September 2010, we (me and my girlfriend) went to 18-day journey in Vietnam. In connection with the anniversary trip, I decided to finally write a report about that trip. I will try to explain as much more information, with emphasis on the practical side, to facilitate economical journey to other travelers in this beautiful country.


Looking ahead:

Budget. Summing up after the trip, we calculated that in 18 days of travelling in Vietnam with a 2-day stop in the capital of Cambodia is Phnom Penh we spent on accommodation for 7800 roubles (of course in the conversion of U.S. dollars and Vietnamese dongs). On travels and excursions (except, of course, bought in advance tickets) and about 4000 rubles. Approximately 4,000 rubles was spent on food. Total travel budget for two to Vietnam+Cambodia (2 days) 18 days was about 16800 roubles. About 13 000 was spent on Souvenirs, clothes, gifts for children, and things that we brought home. Overall, we took $1500, brought $511 home.

Tickets. Tickets for a departure in late September 2010. bought from Vietnam airlines (Vietnam Airlines) on their website two months before the trip. The route – Moscow – Hanoida NangHo Chi Minh city – Moscow cost 51 Tr, how many euros can't remember. Planned arrivals to Cambodia for a few days on the bus, but it is decided to organize on the spot. There are no hotels were booked, they also decided to take place in a supervised advance options.

A visa regime. Vietnam visa for Russians to stay up to 15 days are required. In Cambodia the visa on arrival when crossing the border (the border was crossed on the water) cost $20. Returning after a 2-day stay in Cambodia into Vietnam at the border again received a stamp on the visa-free stay for 15 days.

before departure,
and on feet those sneakers

Shoes :-) Coming out of the house in old sneakers, found that they literally began to fall apart on my feet. Back home it was already late, so took beach shoes, sneakers and boldly went into the trash. So in most of these sneakers I've been all the way through two countries, 6 flights, a bus ride and a boat trip to Cambodia, and has successfully returned home. Here!

Glad you liked Saigon, I really like it too. But I would be careful with recommendations about "least a week". Still, not everyone will like spending time in a noisy bustling city instead of the beach. Two full days for most of them will be enough, and those who love other people, large cities can linger a little longer. ...

About a week - I wrote that we would like there is so much to be. :) And of course, to each his own! But there are so many museums and the city itself is so interesting that walk-not to deregulate. Next we go to Vietnam no less than 3 weeks. You have a good photo, immediately reminded of our journey.
Jane_M, we too were at the factory where they make fish sauce. Yes, the smell of it is still the same! But it is possible to buy in addition to sauce a lot of good and very tasty sun-dried local fish. It's in Fukuoka. And, by the way, Fukuoka is prohibited to take out this sauce. ...

He googled and found that the earlier airlines in Fukuoka was used ATR72 aircraft, where the Luggage area combined with a passenger. And when the bottles crashed, the cabin was transported "mouthwatering aroma" best Fukuoka fish sauce :SUPER . And then it was forbidden to export. Actually, I always pour the sauce in plastic bottles, when being taken home. So safer and easier without glasses. ...

I didn't know about the true reasons for the ban! :) Now I know!

I have a holiday to Vietnam is only the most positive memories and emotions. Oh, the beautiful beach of Nha Trang, we were here in June, rested perfectly. For travelers chose the hotel Den Long Do Hotel, the conditions are excellent, the service is good. Of the trip brought a bunch of Souvenirs and delicacies, in particular, found the shop "Alco House", where he bought the local bottling alcohol in bottles that you can carry in the airport. Loved the nature and the hospitality of the locals, sightseeing and culture. ...
