Organised visits to artists’ private studios and visits to charity organisations to give donations. Whatever red tape or permission is required, whatever introductions are sought, we will take care of everything so that you can enjoy a rich and fulfilling experience.
Most visitors to Vietnam need a visa to enter the country. Getting visas in your home country (if it has an embassy) can be time consuming and expensive.
Indochina Horizon Travel can arrange “visa on arrival” for you in advance.
The process goes like this:
* You give us you passport details and dates,
* WE PUT IN AN APPLICATION AND THEN GET THE VISA APPROVED HERE (3 DAYS)
* we send you a copy of the approval to print out and carry (to be allowed on the plane in to get to Vietnam)
* WHEN YOU GET TO VN IMMIGRATION YOU SHOW THEM THE APPROVAL they will take you to an office at one side and put your visa in your passport immediately.
Cost $15 to us ( Indochina Horizon ) and $45 at immigration – there you go – your passport never leaves your hand and you don’t have to take or send it anywhere!!(COST FOR 1MONTH/SINGLE ENTRY VISA)
You need to carry 2 passport sized photos with you or pay for them to be taken on arrival. Multi entry and longer duration Visas are also available: prices on request
We are able to purchase all internal and international air as well as rail and even bus tickets for you in advance and deliver them to your hotel when you arrive.
Although Vietnam is a very safe, friendly and welcoming country to travel in, many visitors find that they get more out of their travel by having a guide go with them and help discover what lies below the surface.
Apart from the obvious- explaining the history and culture of the tour – a good guide will be a link between the visitor and the real people – translating for you with anybody you meet and explaining the context and the detail of every day life and interaction.
They will also be your “minder” – they know when you need a drink or a rest – they know when you are enjoying yourself or in the middle of something and need more time – they quickly learn what interests you and how much depth you want.
All guides are registered with the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism which means they have passed an exhaustive course (2 months for Tourism graduates and 6 months for other graduates). They are polite and respectful yet pro-active and fun. We offer guide services in English, French, and other languages as well as specialty guides who are experts in various fields including fine art and history.
