Tourist Information

Tourist offices in Vietnam have a different philosophy from the majority of tourist offices worldwide. These government-owned enterprises are really travel agencies whose primary interests are booking tours and turning a profit. Don’t expect much independent travel information.

Travel agents, backpacker cafes and your fellow travellers are usually a much better source of information.
