Hi there I have read on another site that you can get a hydro foil to Ho Chi ming apparently takes an hour I shall check this out and let you know. Also been advised by doctors to take midge repellant with DEET in it to protect against Dengue Fever. Can be bitten during daylight hours.

Hi, we just waiting to see the doctor re the best repellant that won't react to my husbands meds for asthma. Normally he takes garlic tablets 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after but I think he may need something stronger this time.

Hi , we did this cruise in october, you will see plenty of containers that for sure. be prepared for a lot of paper work to fill in. every day when we arrived back to our cabins, we had some sort of immigration forms to fill out. got really fed up with that, but over all very interesting places . we think it was best to do their shore excursions. worth doing one at ho chin ming city. hope that is of some help.

Have you managed to look into any trips yet. I am liasing with one guy in for ho chi minh and the cuchi tunnels but for four of us it is 140 dollars each? Trish.

I have just noticed that the itinerary has been changed. I have asked my travel agent to enquire when and why this has happened. Have you been informed of any change?

Hi, yes we had a letter from Voyana approx 2 months ago but I have shredded it. I believe we will no longer be going to Nagasaki but instead will be staying overnight in Hong Kong, something to do with visa/immigration. Anybody any advice on Chinese visas? Voyana's recommeded agent is asking £273 per couple for a double entry visa but we can save approx £100 by using one of the agents on the internet. Thanks.

Miami airport was so boring it took us 2 hours to get out. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale for a night and got on the cruise ship the next day. We checked in but had to wait about 30mins before we co...
