1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

So difficult to choose one thing. We did so many great things. Experiencing the New Year celebrations on the river side in Hoian was probably the most exciting and and enjoyable because of the colour, sounds and energy all rolled into one event.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Travel light. Laundry services are cheap and easy to use. Use insect repellent to stop nasty bites. Get up early to get to sights before the crowds build up.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We visited local people for several meals so I hope they received good recompense for their hospitality. We learnt about the country, and used a train for one transfer rather than coach or air travel. I think the tour guide could have told us more about the type of things we could buy which would benefit local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent. It was a busy schedule which made the most of our time in Vietnam. Not a vacation if you want time to relax! We experienced a very wide range of activities including pure pleasure with gorgeous boat trips to more sobering and informative trips to museums and war sites.
