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.

Hi , we will be travelling to Phu Quoc Island for 10 days in March but are finding it very difficult to decide which beach to choose. We had wanted to stay at Bai Sao Beach, at the Beach House. But reviews seems to be quite negative. Many noisy day tourists, very quiet at night, dirty beach, few places to eat. Can anyone give us their opinion on this.
Perhaps we would be better choosing Long beach, or moving beach half way though our stay
In this case can anyone recommend a small relaxed mid…
Arrived today from Hanoi. In the domestic terminal there are some taxi desks. I showed one the address of my hotel. They told me the cost would be 400,000 dong I then went outside to the taxi line up. I asked one of the drivers there what he thought the approximate cost would be - 250,000 dong. I had emailed the hotel and asked them what they thought the cost would be, and they said no more than 200,000. I walked a few feet and got on the bus - paid 10,000 dong and I showed the ticket…
