Da Nang has more options for food as it's a bigger city. Hoi An is quite smaller thus more busy with people.
Maybe a quieter area around Da Nang? Easy to change between the two as they are in close proximity of each other.
What Nathan said. Most travelers visit Da Nang as a gateway to Hoi An and Hue. The city itself is fairly more quiet than Ha Noi and Sai Gon. If you just want to relax on the beach a bit, Da Nang isn't a bad spot.

Maybe somebody know good techno club in HCMH? ๐ŸŽ›
dantom 16d
The second question โ€“ can anybody recommendation organize weekend trips outside HCMH? ๐Ÿ˜‰
alsurose 16d
can confirm that Okkio, Tonkin cottage, The Workshop coffee and Running Bean are all nice spots to get some work done ๐Ÿ‘Œ
dantom 16d
Thanks for recomendation! Observatory is very very close to me, so today I will spend time there ๐Ÿ˜„
Vung Tau is a good trip, thereโ€™s a Greenlines boat that leaves from D1 and costs ~220k

Anybody have experience VISA running from Hoi An? I'm thinking a cheap minibus over the Cambodian border might be an option? Should I expect issues?
i did it from Saigon with an agent and i had the following fees (in USD) :

evisa vn $40,00
cambodge evisa $50,00
vn stamp fee $15,00
cambodia fee $20,00
service $50,00 (car, snack, processing, ...)

Also, on your Vietnam Evisa, make sure to enter the correct entry point to Vietnam (the name of the border you will cross)

Make sure to use the official government website
dantom 13d
buy by internet on official goverment site โ€“ 25$ and 3 days for get visa to your mail

Whoโ€™s still in HCMC this week that wants to hang out?
Hi everyone, iโ€™ll be in HCMC in a week. Iโ€™m wondering if anyone knows if there are meetings for brainstorming/exchange on ecom or startup? Iโ€™ll be there for 6 days and i want to meet people and work on projects.

Peace vskin-tone-3
Also, anyone knows any organization to volunteer with kids in vietnam (teaching English/Art). My girlfriend is a teacher and sheโ€™s looking to volunteer. Let me know if you know Whatโ€™sApp group or any organization name.vskin-tone-3
legtar 13d
If she ready for broader audience she can try to reach out Masters cup cafe and english club

Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi? OR Hoi An? Can we currently do visa runs? Debating if I should go to Vietnam or somewhere else where I can stay longer. Let me know how you like VN and if I can just go ti Cambodia for a day and come back to do a visa run
๐Ÿ›ฌ qbpbiewshzig just arrived in ๐Ÿฒ Ho Chi Minh City, #vietnam
eelcoj 12d
They are similar, but totally different cities. Why not give both a solid try. I personally lean more towards HCMC. I really enjoy VN, but again all personal.
Can't you get 90 days for VN with your passport?
You probably need a visa for Cambodia (but check fpr your passport).
ranals 12d
Also interested in this. Has anyone done a visa run to Cambodia recently?
celenaliu 11d
I only get 30 days with the Viet visa.... isnt that the case for all travellers?

Guys thouse who likes surfing! Take into account that in Mui Ne now perfect waves for thesurfing and wind for the kite-surfing!

few months, I guess untill end of february
Looks cool. Thank for the info. I am now in thailand and surf and kite is not that common.
Uuuh Perfect timing, just thought about going to Vietnam soon.
Any recommendation for surf schools and accommodation with good wifi?
Yeah i thought it was 30 days for all tourists. I'm looking into trying to stay in Hoi An for longer than a month. Seems pretty possible to pay an agency $100-ish to visa run you to Laos and sort out all the paperwork

Hello Guys, i would like to come in vietnam as digital nomad.

Could you suggest me where is one of the best place to go for digital nomal (like beautiful clear beach, good wifi, chill mood) ?

thanks a lot guys ๐Ÿ™‚
kethle 9d
Beachside Danang and the beachside of Hoi An basically fill those requirements, though others might have some better beaches in mind.
legtar 9d
But Danang in winter is a bit cold so I would recommend Mui Ne instead
Hey cvcaagdnga what website is that?
official evisa site of Vietnam
Official means nothing when it comes to SE Asian websites, so many BS sites posing as official. Can you post a link?
ranals 9d
That link does not look official, I think the official links should be ".gov" not ".govt", also by looking at the content of the website
right but it seems like they are approved by Immigration Department
ranals 9d
Why do you think that? I'd be cautious with sites which are pretending to be official
Yeah they can all say that dude, honestly it's all bullshit

Usually just 3 or 4 days sometimes quicker
Mine last time probably 6 days
tonyd 5d
Might be slower due to Tet
Just so I knew I would get the right page, I went thru the US State department website. It directed be back to so I assume I am not on some scam site.
zszs157 5d
that is the correct page
Iโ€™m on day 10, still processing!

Do you see the payment taken from your CC?
๐Ÿ›ฌ obhjltkewfuy just arrived in ๐ŸŒ‰ Da Nang, #vietnam
I just got mine approved as well, so yeah they are definitely listening here.. In my case the payment was done more or less since I applied.

mbncbysmlv weather will probably improve soon, but you may want to explore other places. 3 months there would be far too long for meโ€ฆ
Iโ€™m looking for a place thatโ€™s comfortable but also minimal distractions for a little self imposed stress rehab ๐Ÿ˜‚ but it is too long if itโ€™s going to rain for sure.
haha coolโ€ฆi get it. i think weather will be better in march. thatโ€™s what all the locals told meโ€ฆ
I have not seen the charge go thru,but it has been since Jan 15. I sent a note to them via the webform. If I don't hear back by Feb 5 I will reapply.
Anyone knows if there is a whatsapp group for travellers in vietnam?
tonyd 3d
Id say if the payment has not shown and you are seeing that message then the application did not submit properly and is not going to get processed.
hi, Do people had experience withdrawing money with Revolut ? which ATM should I use? is it free?
tonyd 3d
No idea about Revolut but I found that MB ATM would dispense up to 5 Million Dong at one time.
OK I just re-applied from scratch AND got a payment confirmation IMMEDIATELY. Chances are it was my FU and not them. Let see how long this takes.
Yeah use MB, it's not free, no ATM is in VN is unless you get a local bank, and even then, only that bank's ATMs will be free, but MB is 49k per withdrawal, so just grab a few million at a time and it's 1-2% per transaction
Don't know about WhatsApp but there are some Facebook groups. We can create a WhatsApp group though.

Hi, I'm trying to pay for the visas to Vietnam online; we've tried multiple cards but none work. Has anyone had this issue?
pablof7z 15h
is there a visa waiver or an on-arrival visa for EU-passports?
jordnfk 13h
i believe you get 15 days on arrival without doing anything but if you want to stay longer, just do the e-visa.

My wise card didnโ€™t work, but my normal Canadian bank Credit card did.
