Overview: The easiest way to obtain local currency is through ATMs, which are found throughout Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. If you need to change currency, you’ll get the best rates at gold stores along Hang Gai Street in Hanoi. Banks and better hotels also offer exchange services (but the rates won’t be as favorable). Avoid changing money on the street. Credit cards can be used in most locations, but travelers’ checks are only accepted at banks.

Passport/Visa U.S.: Passports and visas are needed by citizens of Canada, Europe, and the U.S. When leaving, expect to pay a US$14 departure tax at the airport and make sure you still have the yellow customs declaration form that was given to you when you arrived in the country. Reconfirm travel document requirements with your carrier before departure.

Tipping Overview: Tipping is a relatively new thing in Vietnam, and to date, it’s more commonly seen in the southern part of the country. Gratuities usually aren’t necessary in inexpensive restaurants, but upscale places will often tack on a 5% service charge. Tips for taxi drivers are purely optional (and most appreciated, however small).

AUTRE TOUR OPERATEUR : Discovery Indochina Discovery Indochina Co.,Ltd 63A Cuabac str., Hanoi, Vietnam Tel: (+ 844 ) 37 164 132, Fax: (+ 844 ) 37 164 133 Email: info@ discoveryindochina .com, Strung on a network of rivers between the mountains and the sea, Vietnam is a landscape of moody alpine fogs hovering over thatch-roofed villages nestled in forests of rain. Vast expanses of reflective paddy fields posturing rice stands through which gentle breezes eddy. Lacework deltas fretted with canals carrying fertile mud recently arrived from China, and boiling white beaches guarded by island sentinels. Discovery Indochina is a leading local tour operator offering great service and good value for money products. Since the beginning the company has established good working relationships with local suppliers, transportation agents, hotels across the region we are in good position to have best offer from them. This enable us to meet the increasing demand of travelers at the most competitive rates and the highest ethical standards. At Discovery Indochina we commit to provide fine quality of service in any aspect of our products. We consolidates our position in the travel industry with a comprehensive range of programs and our friendly environment operation reinforces our commitment to the sustainable development. Placed amongst a mosaic of lakes, Hanoi, the capital, still retains the red-tile-roofed French provincial ambience of years gone by amidst the surging urbane energy of a modern metropolis fused to a thousand-year history of Chinese cultural influence. A city to stroll in, to gawk at its market offerings, munch tropical fruits, sip delicate teas, Hanoi also has places to ponder ancient verities: the Temple of Literature, the One-Pillar Pagoda, the Lake of the Restored Sword.Saigon, on the other hand, commercial hub of the south spun along mangrove riverbanks, threatens to become a financial lightning rod. Once an Asian Venice, its main thoroughfares are now boulevards of filled-in canals wiring between traffic rotaries to form interconnected molecules of enterprise.
