My husband and me have won a one week trip to Vietnam in April of this year through his company. The thing is, I'll be 5 months pregnant by then and I would love some feedback from experienced travelers or maybe moms who have traveled to tropic destinations during their pregnancy.
Here are the facts:
_Trip will be one week, probably split between Hanoi and beach
_Staying in nice hotels, no backpacking
_I have been to the tropics often and have never had problems adjusting to the climate…

I am in Hue right now and going to Nha Trang in two days. I got a toothache and therefore would like to know if it’s legit to go to a dentist there? I googled it already but all the information was at least three years old and said "get a good clinic". Therefore I was wondering if anyone could recommend a clinic. Probably won’t need more than a filling.
Thanks for the time.
Has anyone been on an overnight cruise from cat ba around lan ha bay etc and can recommend a company to go with? Over tet some of the most popular companies are shut including catba ventures. We have got a good deal from a company called catba discovery operating out of catba Seaview hotel, has anyone used this company?
Hi everyone, and thank you for your time.
Here is the thing : I am trying to plan a little trip to Vietnam with my family in a few weeks, but I am getting a bit confused regarding the visas, and especially the new exemptions.
My plan is to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Hue (via HCMC).
We all have French passports, and we would like to use the new 15-days exemption visa.
Do you know if we can get that visa in every airport of the country (especially Hue airport), or only in the international ones…
We are an Australian couple in our 50's and will be staying 9 days in Hoi An in September. Can I have some resort recommendations please. We like markets, the beach and good food. We don't mind if it is adults only or child friendly. We have looked on the internet and totally confused. Thank you Leanne
