Vietnam gay tripTo Vietnamese people, the dragon brings rain, essential for agriculture and what turns this country a vibrant, lush green. It also represents the emperor, and the prosperity and power of the nation. Like the Chinese dragon, the Vietnamese dragon is the symbol of yang, representing the universe, life, existence, and growth. The Vietnamese dragon is the combined image of crocodile, snake, cat, rat and bird. You can also imagine the shape of the country on a map as a verdantly green and sinuous dragon.

Many first-time visitors to Vietnam are overwhelmed by its ancient history, rich culture, and the sublime beauty of the country’s natural setting. It boasts almost 2,000 miles of coastline with endless stretches of white sand beaches. Inland mountains soar majestically from dense, misty forests to heights of nearly 10,000 feet. Hidden away in impenetrable jungles lie the remains of ancient cities. The fertile Mekong Delta in the south is a patchwork of vast rubber plantations and brilliant green rice paddies tended by women in conical hats. Come with us for an adventure on this exciting “green dragon” starting in Hanoi and ending in Saigon, with an optional extension to see the wonders of Cambodia.

Trip Notes

Entry Requirements
For citizens of the United States and Canada, visitors must have both a passport (valid for 6 months from entering the country) and a separate visa for each of the two countries visited on this tour.
Vietnam - There is now a fairly simple procedure for pre-registering to obtain your visa upon arrival. You must get an approval letter in advance. You can obtain your visa in advance through the Vietnam Embassy (or a Consulate).
Cambodia - It is possible to obtain an electronic visa for travel to Cambodia. Click here for a link to the official Cambodia government e-visa service. Visas can also be obtained in advance at any Cambodian embassy or consulate.

Exit Requirements
There is currently no separate departure tax required of visitors leaving Vietnam other than that included with the cost of your airline ticket.

Immunizations and Health
Please consult your personal physician or a travel clinic. Please click to visit the CDC website.
You should only drink boiled or bottled water throughout the duration of this tour. Complimentary bottled mineral water will always be available on our motorcoach.

Making Travel Arrangements to Vietnam
On this tour, international airfare is NOT included. Two internal flights are included within Vietnam, and if you are taking the Cambodia extension, we have included the price of your flight to Siem Reap.
You need to purchase your international flights to Hanoi, Vietnam (code HAN), and back from Saigon (code SGN). If you take the extension to Cambodia, you will return from Siem Reap (code REP).
We suggest you arrive in Hanoi at any time on Friday, February 14, 2020 (hotel rooms available after 3pm). Morning departure is from Saigon on Wednesday, February 26, 2020, or from Siem Reap on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

What to Bring
In February, the temperatures will be cool in Hanoi, between 60 and 70 degrees. The middle of the country in Hue and Hoi An will be about 10 degrees warmer between 70 and 80 degrees. Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) can range from 75 to 85 degrees. With such a wide variance in temperature, you will want to bring a sweater for cool evenings and lightweight clothes for hotter days. The tour is informal and dinner attire is casual, but you will want a nice outfit for welcome and farewell dinners. Try to pack light and bring only one piece of luggage plus your carry-on. Pack any medications you require in a carry-on bag and leave expensive jewelry at home.

Money Matters
Vietnam: The currency unit is the Dong (VND). Major credit cards are now more widely accepted throughout the country at most hotels and restaurants, but you will need cash at local shops. On March 23, 2019, the interbank exchange rate was 23,140 VND to the US Dollar.
Cambodia: The official currency is the riel (KHR), but the US Dollar is the currency favored by the locals. On March 23, 2019, the interbank exchange rate was 3,870 KHR to the US Dollar.

Tipping Guidelines
Gratuities make a huge difference in the lives of those who work for us here, as the local wages are minimal at best. We will make group tips where appropriate, and guidelines will be provided prior to departure with a suggested contribution to a group tipping fund.

The recent trend in travel is for people to finalize their plans much closer to departure time than was customary in the past. While we try to be as flexible as possible we often must turn away last minute registrants because we relinquish hotel space and air reservations 8 – 12 weeks prior to departure! Please keep this in mind when making your travel plans.

This unique tour of Vietnam provides unforgettable memories and personal interactions with members of the gay community, plus the opportunity for incredible adventures at the World Heritage Temples of Angkor in Cambodia. Mount the “green dragon” and fly with us to another world! If you have any questions, please email us.
