In Vietnam electric current is mostly 220V in main cities, although you can still find 110V in rural areas. Sockets are both round and flat types.


Internet service providers are currently operating in most of the cities. You can access the internet through hotels, cyber cafés and restaurants


There are five international airports in Vietnam: Noi Bai in Hanoi located 45 minutes from the town centre, Cat Bi in Hai Phong, Danang’s airport at 4 km from the heart of the town, Cam Ranh located 40 mn driver from Nha Trang and Tan Son Nhat in Ho Chi Minh City located 20 minutes from the town centre. 
In Vietnam, we drive on the right side. An international Driving license is not valid. Only owners of a Vietnamese driving license are allowed to drive a car or a motorcycle. Without talking about insurance matters, renting a motorbike is possible although not recommended due to the dense traffic in main cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The road network has improved but still needs to be upgraded in some areas. To cover a distance, it is reasonable to count an average speed of 50 km / hour.

Safety and Securities

Vietnam is generally a safe country, however some simple common sense precautions with possessions lessen the chances of becoming a victim to petty theft. 
Carry your handbag or rucksack to the front of you and be particularly aware that handbag snatches / thefts from motorbikes occur especially in the bigger cities and crowds. It is advised to keep luggage locked while travelling, whether it is stored in the hold of a car or bus, during flights or train journeys. Virtually all hotels have safety boxes to keep your valuable belongings while on tour.

  • Mai Chau - Pu Luong
    Thuy Pham was very knowledge about the tour and super organized to ensure that I have the best experience from the tour. Mai Chau - Pu Luong was amazing with all the nature scenes and the friendly Thai minority in the village. I got to learn a lot of cultures in the area and how they are similar and different from the rest of other Vietnamese in the country...

  • Five Star Tour Agency with Excellent Service from Ms.Thuy Pham, Travel Advisor
    ...Words simply cannot express the awesome job Ms.Thuy Pham did in planning every detail personally. She gave us more than 100% of her attention before the trip and during our time. We shared almost a personal relationship during the process that we even met for lunch in Hanoi! Thuy took the time to share our travel experiences mid-way through the trip. That gave us a true feeling of “Vietnam Hospitality”...
