TRAILS OF VIETNAM

Hi all, just wanted to touch base with fellow travellers on this trip departing 25th November.
It would be good to here back from people on this trip.
Hope you are all getting excited, Paul & Tracy.

Hi Pablo, my wife and I are on this trip. Looking forward to experiencing Vietnam, I've heard good reports from people who have been ther. Are you doing the Angkor wat extension? Be good to hear back from you. Cheers

Yes looking forward to it too, unfortunately not able to do the Angkor extension due to work commitments.
Somewhere i've always wanted to visit though.
Tracy's had her jabs today, her arms are now falling off!!
How's yours going?
Paul & Tracy

We have an appointment next month for the jabs, hopefully won't need to many myself but the wife probably will. Are you taking anti malarials? It's supposedly low risk, even in Cambodia. Missus is diabetic too so that complicates things a bit for her.

I am lucky enough not to need any jabs as i am fully up to date with mine, we are going to have a consultation with a travel clinic about the anti malarials, so not sure yet.
Tracy has some issues around food allergies so she is a little worried about that.

Hello i am a solo traveller also going.

Kayleigh

Hi ,welcome to the adventure.
That makes 5 of us then. :)

Are any of you travelling on the group flight or making your own arrangements? like myself and Tracy.

Hi Kayleigh, looking forward to meeting you. We are on the group flight out, but returning separately as we're doing the extension as I said. Has anyone been to Vietnam before? It's supposedly cold in the north at that time of year. Just wondering how much warm clothing to take?

For the trekking section in the north, we plan to take a selection of clothes for creating a layering system, ie a base layer, fleece top, light weight jacket. Walking trousers, waterproof trousers and jacket. This way we should cover all weathers.

Hi, I'm another solo traveller, I'm flying out on Thursday to arrive there Friday for an extra night before we start.
I don't think the climate is too much to worry about, average temp is low 20's in Hanoi.
Looking forward to the food

Hi, My partner and I are also on the trip. Not been to Vietnam before so were really looking forward to it and meeting you all.
Sol & Leila

Hi. I'm also on this trip with my husband Tom and we're also really looking forward to it - only two weeks now! We're on the group flight too.
I was wondering what people were thinking about clothing for the kayaking? It's not something we've done much of before so wondering how prepared we need to be to get soaked, especially if it's not too warm?!
We've not been before so looking forward to a new experience.
Polly and Tom

Hi all, not long to go now.
Hopefully the weather will be warm enough to do the kayaking in shorts an tee shirts.
looking forward to meeting everyone in Hanoi.
Paul & Tracy

Flying separatlely so will arrive at the hotel a little later :)
