Trip Report Trip Report Vietnam/Siem Reap/Bangkok

Jump to last reply

Just back from a lightning trip to the east . Here is my first instalment.

We used Tonkin for some of our Vietnam hotel bookings and guides as well as our local flights upto and including our flight to Bangkok. Our flights from Toronto to Hanoi and Bangkok return were planned using FF miles.

The day before we were due to leave for Hanoi I heard of the tragedy in Halong Bay. I was a bit upset but Ms Nhung from Tonkin responded promptly telling me that the Violet was a newer and better boat and the trip was not suspended.

On arrival at Hanoi our ride was waiting for us and whisked us off to the Sofitel Metropole. We instantly fell in love with this grande dame of hotels and were vowed by the superior service. We were in the new wing prior to our trip to Halong Bay.

Our Halong Bay adventure will be coming up soon.
