Trip Report Hello, Vietnam

Jump to last reply

We arrive in Hanoi about two hours behind schedule for our first visit to Vietnam. Having done the Visa On Arrival (VOA) process, entering Vietnam for the second time on the same day, due to an earlier weather divert, is easy. All of our paperwork is in order and we exit the terminal into hustle and bustle of people and cars going everywhere.

From the airport to the city is about 40km and the fastest way to get there is by taxi. However, cheap public transportation is available but since it is late we opt to take a taxi. For about VN$ 400,000, we are headed to The Rising Dragon Hotel.

Our Vietnam adventure and experience is about to begin. Good Evening, Hanoi.
