AOV - Vietnam Adventure

Hi Everyone,

I posted in the forum earlier in the year but didnt get many replies, now hopefully there are more people going on this holiday.

Would love to get in touch with fellow travellers before we go!

Looking forward to the experience very much, and its also my first trip with exodus, aswell as my first holiday im a bit nervous!

If anyone else is going on the Vietnam Adventure trip, departing on the 30th August I would love to hear from you!!


Hi Rebecca

I had originally wanted to go on the 7 Sep trip but was the only 1 showing interest and it wasn't a guaranteed trip so I have now changed my option to the 31st Aug ( will make my own flight arrangements)

I went to China last September with exodus and Laos & Cambodia in February and enjoyed them so now want to see more of Vietnam. My daughter was there for a student project 3 yrs ago and I visited her for 5 days. Its fine travelling alone on these trips everybody gets on well and its not a problem.

Must go and try research my flights now as I like want to extend the trip after the tour.


Hi Brian,

 I am so glad someone got back to me! I was starting to wonder if anyone else had shown interest in the holiday! I am so excited, as im sure it will be a great experience.

Will look forward to seeing you there!

Take care until then.


Hi Rebecca,

I'm just getting organised despite booking this trip back in April. I'll post a little more under the first chain as more people seem to have viewed that one.

Not long to go now! Can start to look forward to it.

Hi Rebecca

Have finalised my flights and just received my joining instructions.

I believe there are only 5 of us on the trip rather a smaller group than I have experienced before.


Hi to all of you,

The holiday is slowly creeping closer! Getting excited and nervous now...and Wow Brian only five of us, it will be nice though I am sure! See you all out there! :)  

Hi, would anyone be interested in meeting at the airport before the flight? :)

Hi Rebecca

Would have been happy to meet at airport Rebecca but I'm arriving the day before after a few days in Thailand. Don't worry your nerves will change to excitement. Looking forward to meeting you. I might be wrong but think Ann and Bob were on the 2 August trip. Off to organise my currency.


Hi All,

Somehow managed to post on the wrong trip. We did AOV departing on 1/8/13.

So for all you lucky people about to depart - you are in for a real treat!!!

Bon Voyage.

Hi guys,

 Brian, would you recommend getting most of the things on the 'general' section of the packing list as thats what I was just aiming to do. Would you recommend bring a sleeping bag/sleeping bag liner etc. Im worried about bringing too much unnecessary stuff, but then also worried about not bringing enough! What's your advice? 



Hi Guys.

Not clear if we are all on the same flights but we are flying with Singapore Airways from Newcastle via Heathrow (1130 on 30th) & Singapore (0920 on 31st) arriving in Hanoi 1140. Happy to meet up at airport. We are also doing the Angkor Wat extension - is anyone else? Our son was in the area at the same time last year - no need for a sleeping bag - too hot! He says a liner is a good idea on the train for eg.

Looking forward to it. Nick and Kate 

Hi Rebecca

Yes most of things on general side ok. Don't worry about sleeping bag, I took liner to China was useful on train, so maybe bring it if you have 1. Suitcase or holdall  with wheels good, lots of packing and unpacking. Small rucksack useful 2. I took cycling helmet last time but wont this time.


So my nerves have turned into excitement now!! Cant wait to get out there and meet everyone!

Although I have checked the weather forcast and its not great! But im sure we wont particularly be too bothered once we are there!

 Look forward to meeting you all!

 Bye for now x
