We leave for Vietnam in a week! And I'm still planning. I have a few specific questions, which follow:
(Family of 4: 2 adults and 2 children, ages 11.5 and 13.5, younger child adopted from Vietnam in 2000.)
1. My 13-year-old really wants to go to stay Vinpearl resort and it's amusement Park in Nha Trang. I have read very mixed reviews of the Park. SO I do not want to make a special stop in Nha Trang unless the Park is pretty great.
Our Itinerary :
Arr: HCM City late on March 17 - CHeck out on MArch 19 (Staying at Sherwood residence apts),
Arr: Phan Thiet March 19 - Check-out March 22 (already booked)
Arr: HCM City - March 22 (Sherwood again)
Arr: Hoi An - March 23 - Leave March 26 Wanted to stay at Palm Garden, which looks full (plan some cooking, biking, photography)
Arr.: Hanoi March 26 - Leave March 30 (back to USA)
(plan Water Puppets, day trips, other depending on weather) Hoping to stay at Essence but it's family rooms are booked, so am trying Sherwood Residence.
2. What's the best way to make international and domestic calls in Vietnam? I have an iPhone 4S, but I'm not sure if I should bring it. I've heard there are better ways to make calls. Any advice is welcome.
3. Any advice on Sherwood Hanoi and/or beach-front hotels in Hoi-An truly appreciated.
Plus Vinpearl Nha Trang.
Thanks again, Diane and Family
