Leaving for Vietnam in four days for my first visit

Jump to last reply

Am I ready?

I'm flying from San Francisco to Hong Kong. I plan to convert $100 USD into the Vietnam currency in Hong Kong since my connecting flight doesn't get into Vietnam until just after midnight. Good idea?

I'm using a Visa on Arrival when I arrive at SGN. I have two copies of the letter and the paper with my name on the form and two passport photos. Do I need anything else? I hope they can do a visa on arrival form at 1:00 a.m.

I plan to take a taxi from the airport to my hotel. Any suggestions on how to not get ripped off my a taxi driver?

Any major sites I shouldn't miss? Any good buys?

I'm packing really lite: three pair of pants, two pair of shorts, eight shirts, two pair of shoes. Should I bring a battery powered fan? Suggestions please.
