Do your homework

Finding the right Vietnam travel agent requires a little time spent on research. A great place to start the process is to ask relatives and friends for recommendations. If a close family member was happy with their travel experience, there is a great chance you will be. Additionally, the review sites like TripAdvisor are a great place to start the research process.

Also, you may want to look at the locally based travel agents because they will have more knowledge of their country, and provide the more in-depth, fun and interesting travel itineraries.

Figuring out your needs

In order to plan the preferred holiday it is essential to figure out your needs. A locally based Vietnam travel agency can easily create the bespoke travel plan that matches the specific needs. Whether you are looking for a 14 day north to south tour of Vietnam or a 28 day Indochina tour that includes the highlights of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, there are plenty of travel options to explore in this part of SE Asia.

Touring the country is a very popular option. Simply being based in a single town or city can be extremely limiting, and this only shows a very small part of this wondrous and unique world. Plus, touring is a lot more satisfying and gives greater opportunities to explore what is on offer. A tour that spans from Hanoi in the north to Ho Chi Minh City in the south is a great way to see the changes in the country with its lofty peaks and beautiful islands.

Also, the tour style of holiday makes it possible to experience the hiking adventure, a city break, and sun worshipping in a single package.

How much do you want to get involved?

Some travel agents can plan every aspect of the Indochina travel, from booking hotels and excursions to airlines and dinner reservations. Other agents will be more than happy to give assistance on basing a travel itinerary on your personal research. Also, the option to communicate with the agent can vary; some are comfortable with email, while others may prefer phone interaction. The travel organisation is certain to work best when you are able to find an agent who is able to match your travel planning personality. Most travel agents will let you know their travel planning process and communication style by simply asking.

Compare prices

Many different factors are taken into considering when pricing the active or relaxing holiday, such as the complexity of the trip, the length, time of year, and places or countries to visit. The established agents are often in a position to get extras for their clients, such as room upgrades and more convenient check-ins and checkouts at airport transfers and hotels.
