VIETNAM TRAVEL UPDATE
VIETNAM TRAVEL UPDATE
Vietnam is becoming very popular for all kinds of tourism. I encourage people to make their travel plans as soon as possible, before it is spoiled by massive tourist development and the costs escalate dramatically.
High-end hotels and resorts will soon occupy today’s quiet ocean front areas and sandy beaches. Budget travel to Vietnam will be replaced by that which has taken over the Caribbean and Mexico. Hotels are being developed by such international financiers as Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal – he is planning a US$65 million project near Da Nang’s China Beach. It will be known as Raffles Resort. I stayed at the Non Nouc Hotel on China Beach in 2002 for US$11.00 a night, the Hotel was renovated and renamed Sandy Beach and the cost per night went to US$40.00 in 2004 (published rate in 2009 is about US$100).
Vietnam Travel Activity
Ho Chi Minh City has seen an increase in Vietnam travelers over the past few years. The recent economic situation has resulted in a slow down. Cruise ships are making more stops in Vietnam ports. Vietnam travel from 5 star cruise ships adds to the upward pressure on tourist costs. Personal services such as cyclo rides and souvenir prices are going up.
Set a budget for your Vietnam travel plans – Money and Time
Your budget Vietnam travel plans should provide at least a 2 week tour, a 3 weeks would be ideal. Here are a half dozen places you should include in your Vietnam travel itinerary: Sapa, Halong Bay, Hoian, Nha Trang, Dalat, and the MeKong Delta. Fly into Hanoi and Depart Saigon.
A well planned itinerary should be available from the west coast of the US for about a $1000 round trip airfare and $10 – $20 a night for a tourist hotel depending on which city you’re spending the night. With good planning a 2-3 week tour can be had for $1500 – $2000.
