Information about Vietnam
We have designed this web site to provide as much information about Vietnam and its people as possible. We firmly believe that the more a visitor knows about Vietnam in advance, the more he or she will be able to appreciate its remarkable characteristics and qualities. Important though that is, it's being able to deal with the basic nuts and bolts of getting around on the trains, how much to give a guide for a tip, what to wear, how to avoid making a faux pas, and all the other minor issues and problems that can arise, that make a holiday stress-free and relaxing.
If you're an experienced traveller, much of this will be familiar to you. If not, we hope this section will provide answers to some of your questions, help you to adjust quickly, and contribute to enjoying your time in our country.
There are bound to be plenty of concerns that have not been covered. If there's something you want to know, or you want advice, or you don't have time to read the pages, just e-mail us with your query. You'll get a reply by return.
