TNH - A little help, please. I'm soon to be arriving in Ha Noi on my first trip to VN. A couple weeks later I'll be going from Ha Noi to Ha Giang. I'm having trouble figuring out my best transportation option. Don't want to hire a private driver just for me, that's expensive and piggy. I am concerned that the bus will be cramped (I am very tall), is that true? I've heard about an "executive bus" premium service of some sort, but can't find any real information about it. I've read that the night bus is dangerous, but it's hard to know how much weight to give those stories. Thank you!

Here's our problem.. We are traveling to Cambodia 25-28 Sept 2010 and we just got our visas (B3) today. The problem is this passport of his ran out of pages. He is holding an Australian passport and he is planning to get a new passport tomorrow (Est TAT would be 10 days). How does he transfer the valid visa on to his new passport? What to do? We looked at the passport site of Australia and is pretty much crap and cannot provide any valid answers.

My friends are flying into Ho Chi Minh city in a couple of weeks and they would like to go by train to Hoi An. The thing is the only trip we could find mostly went through the night which defeats the purpose of the train as my friends would really enjoy seeing the countryside. Has anyone had any experience going on a day time train from Ho Chi Minh to Hoi An? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
My sister is coming in a week (staying for a full two weeks) and I am considering doing a train trip to Hoi An, stopping at various places along the way (then flying back to Hanoi from Danang). Has anyone done this kind of a trip? If so what were your experiences and do you have any recommendations for travel arrangements? We would be stopping in Vinh and Hue for sure. Are there any other points of interest that you would recommend?
