In this Episode we explore the value of time on a holiday in Vietnam.
This is part 2 - with Miquel Angel.
While we discussed in Part 1, the aspects of travel opening up to 5 provinces from November 2021. In this Part 2, we expand the travel opening conversation and unpack the normal trip duration of 14 days to see the main destinations. From there we discover the highlights and lowlights impacted by how much time you have in each place. Time becomes a BIG factor in your trip planning.
Commonly this kind of trip known as the “top to bottom”, or “bottom to top” trip tends to leave the traveller pretty exhausted( especially the long haul travellers) : and while many will attribute the trip to being magnificent, they don’t decide to come back and see more. So, unlike many other SEA countries which welcome back tourists over and over again, Vietnam, statistically in the main, doesn’t get the repeat tourist. It’s the “reasons why” that takes Miquel and I on a funny anecdotal journey of experiences that could contribute to this outcome.
During the episodes (Part 2 &3) we flesh out the typical experiences of this 14 day trip and how they could be better managed if the focus was on particular regions ie The South, Central, Highlands and Northern regions
Miquel and I will unwrap the very typical tour and hopefully give you some advice and feedback from being involved with these tours so you can choose wisely and possibly make better choices for yourself. Oh, but that’s on the proviso you come back, as we are pretty sure, you would be crazy if you didn't.
Please stay tuned for Episode 3 in this series as Miquel and I continue to unwrap the travel landscape of Vietnam and guide travellers to their best stay in the country.
