My girlfriend and I are considering taking a tour with easy riders across the central highlands. The destination will be Dalat. However, we are not sure what will be the optimal starting location. As we are starting our Vietnam trip in Hanoi, we are considering Hoi An and Nha Trang. Will you guys recommend the Hoi An-Dalat tour or the Nha Trang-Dalat tour?
Secondly, we are considering which company to use. In other forums, vietnameasyridertours.com owned by Mr. Happy has been recommended…
My friends and I would like to go to Vietnam in November. We intend to stay Sai Gon in 3 days and then visit some places in Mekong Delta and Phu Quoc island. Do you know much about Phu Quoc? Places to see? And how to move from Sai Gon or Mekong Delta to Phu Quoc?
we are going to Sapa region this weekend. Our plan is to arrive to Lao Cai on Sunday morning using overnight train, to visit Bac Ha market and Monday and Tuesday spend on trek in nature and visit local villages.
Is there any regular/local bus from Lao Cai to Bac Ha on Sunday morning, or do we need to book some guided trip? Information are different, some local guide informed us, there is no bus from Lao Cai to Bac Ha, but on different websitest I found a bus leaving Lao Cai between 6:00…
Me and my sister are travelling through SE Asia next year and stopping off at Vietnam for 2 weeks. We are looking at making Ho Chi Minh & Hanoi our main bases.
Where looking at things to do but was wondering if anyone could mention the best places they went to and would recommend!? :)
Thanks in advance!

I am planning my trip to Vietnam in the middle of July, and I found contradictory information on the bus from from Danang to Phong Nha. As the website of Easy Tiger Hostel states, there is a local bus from Danang at 1 p.m. (the company called Bao Vuong I think), and I found this bus on other sites as well (somewhere they say it's a minibus), but the website of Oxalis Adventure Tours says there is no reliable bus connection between the 2 towns.
Is there anyone who could give me first hand…
