A land of staggering natural beauty and cultural mix, of dynamic mega-cities and hill-tribe villages, Vietnam is both exotic and compelling.
New Year’s holiday’s were approaching and we were still juggling to finalize the place – where to visit, on arrival visa, availability of good hotels etc etc. Then the name came to mind as Vietnam – near to the Philippines (which is my current base location), a beautiful place, with friendly people, and more importantly we found the availability in Intercontinental hotel. It was a 3 nights stay and we enjoyed our stay with beautiful ambiance and helpful staff.
BEST TIME TO VISIT VIETNAM
Spring is one of the best times to visit Vietnam (February to April) and the second most favorable time is Autumn (August to October). The temperatures are not too hot and rainfall is less. Spring has pleasant weather though it is still cool on the north side.
If you want to see the whole country then it is difficult to decide on the best time to visit Vietnam. It is over 1000 km in length and has regional diversity. The best thing is, travel to any part of the country in any season is possible.
VISA FOR VIETNAM
It is a very easy process. Apply online with your travel details. They will email you the confirmation of eVisa. On arrival at the Vietnam airport, show the confirmation letter and get the visa stamp. Visa fee is 45 USD per person (always check online as it changes from time to time), then they will scan your passport and grant a Visa of one month.
