Yes, that is ok. You can leave Vietnam on May 1 which is not problem. However if you leave Vietnam on May 2 you can pay fee 20-50 USD. I may catch this issue.

Depending on the time you have for your travel, it's a better option to take the night train (the train is VERY slow, so you lose quite some time during the day). Regarding buying the ticket, ours was bought by the hotel manager, and comparing to prices seen online there was no difference, so I assume there was no additional fee, compared to a travel ...

A 15 day Vietnam VOA allows you to stay in the country for 15 days ... pretty simple really. The day you arrive is Day 1. The day you depart needs to be Day 15 or sooner. Like most countries the counted day starts at midnight and ends at midnight, so entering through immigration at 11:59pm still counts as Day 1. And departing at 11:59pm on Day 15 is still ...

My very first trip to Vietnam, I was in the immigration line and the German guy ahead of me was trying to explain that he couldn't give the name of the hotel, because he had hired a guide, who was waiting just outside, and the guide had booked the hotel and not told him the name. The gruff uniformed agent listened with barely concealed contempt and boredom ...

Heat and humidity aside, the promenade alongside China Beach in Da Nang is probably one of the easiest places to run in Vietnam. Motorbikes tend to be kept off it, something that can't even be said for the parks in Hanoi! Even when it peters out in parts at the north end of the beach, the road is relatively wide and relatively quiet. It's shaded in places, ...

With that in mind, it's probably best to prebook tickets if you can, it guarantees you a seat on the train you want to be on. If you're ...

Rather than risk there being a misunderstanding I would put down the address of where I intended to stay. Just because I say I'm going to stay somewhere doesn't mean I cannot change my mind. Sometimes even when you have a reservation the hotel is overbooked...

Is it possible to rent a bike in one city and drop off in another, when traveling to Vietnam? It depends, namely on what cities you want to rent and drop off your bike in. There are a few one-way rental companies with motorcycles targeted at tourists. The one I saw advertised most often when I was in Vietnam last month was Motorvina. These companies ...

I'm not aware of any bike-rental companies that operate in multiple cities. What a lot of tourists do is simply purchase the bike outright -- you can pick up a perfectly serviceable Honda for $300 -- and then sell, give away, or abandon the bike at the end of the trip.
