Only pay according to the amount stated in the booking. iirc Only time they add amount is when they enter or exit from the airport.

enter airport dnt need extra, dnt be scam by them. they will tell u it's baggage related. tht's wat the taxi driver tld me to try to scam me


use credit card or grabpay is indeed cheaper. but for some, they might prefer pay cash instead, for security purpose.
wat security purpose?

anyway, if they dnt like, they can dnt accept the job cause they can see paid by cash or card

no lah.... its the airport entrance gantry fee. iirc its like 10K-12K VND
its like our ERP charges when we take grab in Singapore.
erp charges will be added to the passenger at the end of the ride.

wait till you kena those "black-hearted" grab drivers

if you are a Platinum grab user, then the chances of getting such "black-hearted" grab drivers will be greatly reduced.

anyway... vn is a country whereby it is still advisable to use cash

Thanks, that’s what I was thinking in my heart... maybe 2 nite would be great but no time. . Happy New Year.
1 nite should be enough. I went for 2D1N Halong Bay cruise. They will bring us for sea activities and island hopping. All inclusive in the price.

Thinking of doing one day Halong Bay tour, any thoughts on this? Any cruise to recommend as I know there’s many out there!
4 years ago I went on this cruise. http://halongfantaseacruise.com/.

2D1N should be sufficient. see above link for more info.

Just came back from Hanoi. Had a very noice holiday there.

We took a couple of tour from a tour agent recommended in this thread. Both trips went well.

Can be quite chilly on certain days, with slight rain.

Guys. I was contemplating btw SQ and VN air. Prefer the latter because of the timing. For those frequent travellers using VN air, how was the experience in terms of delay and service etc?
