Vietnam completely blew us away - one of our best experiences ever! From the bustling of the Old Quarters in Hanoi in the north, thru beautiful Hoian with its thousand colorful lanterns in Center, down to Ho Chi Minh with the tunnels and Mekong river, this has just been one of the most scenic, most exquisite tours. The natural beauty of Halong Bay took our breaths away and it's one of the places we will definitely return to in future. Thank you so much to Trung Hoang who made this tour extra special - your assistance and guidance will hard to top! You were the best!!!

A Response from Seni World 26/04/2019

Tipping is not customary in Vietnam but it's highly appreciated. Most the high-end services include a service fee but if you receive a service that exceeded your expectation, then a tip is highly recommended. Normally, you should tip at least 1-3 USD/pax/day for your guide and driver.

A Response from Seni World 18/07/2019

Vietnam's weather is tropical climate with high humidity creating a favorable condition for many insects especially mosquitoes. Whenever you head outside especially in mountainous areas, be sure to apply repellent to all areas of exposed skin. 

A Response from Seni World 15/04/2019

Depending on individual hotels, most of the hotels in Vietnam are equipped with all necessary amenities such as hair dryers, private bathroom, safety box, shampoo, body lotion and more. If you're not sure about the quality of these kinds of stuff, you can bring your own or buy outside.

A Response from Seni World 07/12/2018

You can easily find an ATM at any major cities across the country. Though, it's hard to find one in local areas, so make sure you prepare enough money for a journey out of the city.  Do not keep too much money along you to avoid the risk of theft.
