Vietnam Private Vacations

 

Dear Sunny Pham,

I just want to tell you how much we enjoyed our holiday. We all had the most wonderful time. I think I am in love with Hanoi. Cyclo rides in peak hour traffic are quite an adrenaline rush.

Our guides were all knowledgeable and helpful, they were also great company and contributed to our enjoyment immensely. Loan has such a great sense of humour and we shared a lot of laughs. It was hard to say good-bye to him.

Susan in Sapa was a great source of local knowledge and very helpful when I realised I would not be able to hike to the homestay. I am so grateful that she organised for the bus to take me as we all enjoyed the experience so much (as well as the rice wine). We were very lucky as the weather in Sapa was great and clear skys meant we have some excellent photos. I was surprised at how comfortable the train was.

Halong Bay is so beautiful and with only six other people on board we were very spoilt indeed.
Hue was very interesting and I would like to see it again when the weather is better as there were so many things to see and I would have liked to linger, but in the end we just wanted to get somewhere dry. Duong, our guide was very knowledgeable and looked after us very well as he sorted out the small mix-up at the hotel. He did look shocked when we said we had a great meal down in the markets. I’m not sure why.

Hoi An was lovely and we all enjoyed it greatly. We didn’t get clothes made as we were too busy sightseeing although Liz did get some shoes made. The cooking school was excellent , very entertaining and professional. I haven’t tried any of the recipes at home yet although I do make a good pho bo as we have all become quite addicted.

The Cu Chi Tunnels were a tribute to man’s ingenuity in dire straits but it was also a terrible reminder of the horrors and tragedy of war. I was constantly amazed at the determination of the Vietnamese people to rise above the past and look to the future. Impressive.

We all loved the Cao Dai temple. Very beautiful indeed.
The lunch we had there was disappointing and we would rather have had lunch at one of the roadside stalls. I heard other diners say the same thing. Up until this all the meals were fantastic so we can’t complain.

Saigon is big and impressive but for me it doesn’t have the charm of Hanoi but we did find some interesting places to eat and tried some unusual dishes like sparrow and dog, which I have to say we all enjoyed immensely. We can’t thank Moi enough for taking us. We decided against the dinner cruise as the food was rather western influence and we wanted to try a restaurant we had found instead.

The Mekong Delta was wonderful and I would have liked to stay another day.

I have travelled in Europe, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Thailand and India and loved them all, but Vietnam has been outstanding in its cleanliness, safety, and the kindness, helpfulness, warmth and humour of the people.

I want to thank you again on behalf of Liz and Robert Boekholt and Lee Gerchow and myself for organising such a wonderful trip. We are hoping to return next Christmas with Lee’s parents and will contact you as soon as we know for sure.

Please feel free to use any or all of this to promote this great holiday package and to pass on our e-mail address to any prospective clients.

Next time I hope we get to thank you in person.
Best wishes
Ros Gerchow
