Hello Mr Lee

Very good to hear from you. How are you?
We are fine thank you. We are really missing Vietnam. We loved it.
The trip we booked with your company was fantastic. Our tour guide, Mr Tai, was incredible. He was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about Vietnam's life culture and history. He was so easy to get along with too. When he took us through the Mekong we had a wonderful time. We really felt like we had experienced life in Vietnam. The people, the places, the sights, the food were all tremendous. We had the time of our lives and had an experience we will never forget.
Our time in Cambodia was excellent but not quite as good as our time in Vietnam with Sinh Cafe. We really enjoyed our time there, seeing some of the main tourist places in Cambodia. If it could have been improved I would suggest that the hotels we stayed in while in Cambodia could have been more central to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap as they were quite a way out of the main part of the cities. Apart from that everything was fine.
Of course we will introduce your company on Trip Advisor using the link you sent. We will say what a fantastic time we had with your company.
If you would like any photos from our time travelling with your company, let me know. Mr Tai said he would send some to us through the company. If you see him please give him our best regards.

Best regards

Bob Whittome

Subject: Good morning Vietnam

An ethereal, ghostly mist shrouds Hanoi before sun-up and the city's early morning traffic is nothing but a quiet hum. Yet there's more life on the street than you might expect at this hour. Dozens of locals gather beside the shores of West Lake in the Tay Ho area to gently practise tai chi. Fishermen wobble precariously on stepping stones as they cast their lines into the grey waters.
But it's not all tradition in this part. Tay Ho - in the north of the city - is a fashionable hot-spot. Can an old-style communist suburb be described as such? Apparently so.
A local man tells me there is at least one Ferrari in town now, that Western opera is popular, and that a decent house near West Lake would set me back $1million dollars. He is, however, an estate agent. Yet everything he says shows how times have changed in this once red city.
Tay Ho is also home to the Fraser Suites, another un-Socialist addition. I am staying in a luxurious serviced apartment with giddying views of the city; it's an economic, stylish alternative to one of the larger international hotels. I also find new restaurants and bars mushrooming.
Bobby Chinn has relocated his eponymous eatery around the corner. The red lantern-clad restaurant is so atmospheric (read dark) that magnifying glasses and torches come with the menus.
Luckily, excellent eating is still a bargain in Hanoi  -  £15 a head, plus booze, should cover it in a trendy restaurant; double that for a sumptuous feast.
 And if you brave one of the street vendors, then budget for a few thousand dong.
The local currency takes some getting used to - the numbers involved are so huge. There's about 31,000 dong to the pound, so changing a hundred quid (sterling is easily exchanged) makes you an instant multi-millionaire.
The half a million dong I pay for a silk shirt is well shy of £20.
Of course, shopping is a prime reason to visit this fascinating place. In Tay Ho you'll find Dome, a top-drawer interiors boutique (great for lacquer-ware, soft furnishings and furniture). But I love the old quarter, Hoan Kiem district.
It's a 20-minute cab ride from Tay Ho to the city centre and oriental retail nirvana. Rich embroideries, spices, clothing and shoes, ceramics, teas, fake sunglasses, exotic lampshades, bundles of silk, ornamental birdcages and musical instruments vie for attention alongside T-shirts, antique shops, incense stalls and contemporary art galleries.
 Street florists are everywhere. I take my time, soak up the atmosphere, browse and hone my bargaining skills.
This industrious show of capitalism intrigue me, and I ask my guide if the government's grip on the country has relaxed. Judging from his nervous reaction, I assume some aspects of living under one party remain firmly unchanged.
Nothing had prepared me for the anarchy on Hanoi's streets. The roads throng with bicycles and mopeds - and crossing them is hair-raising. I need refreshment to calm my nerves.
My yin and yang are restored in Wild Lotus, one of Hanoi's most glamorous restaurants in the adjacent French quarter. This is a buzzy place in a colonial art deco mansion with gilded walls and discreetly lit art works. Carrie Bradshaw and the girls would feel at home here.
Cua bay sot me (deep-fried soft shell crab in tamarind sauce) is delicious, and as none of the main dishes costs much more than a fiver, you can experiment.
But only a philistine would come to Hanoi without seeing some of the many ancient pagodas, temples and cultural sites. And no visitor should miss out on paying their respects to Ho Chi Minh.
The granite mausoleum - it looks like a huge Thirties drinks cabinet - housing his mortal remains has imbued a cult of personality around him.
Uncle Ho, as he's affectionately known, lies permanently in state like a communist Snow White in a crystal casket, preserved by the dab hands of Russian embalmers. Don't be put off by the long queues. They move quickly, and this is a chance to witness a blink of history.
Four days in the city should be enough for the casual visitor, then you'll need to explore farther afield. I head to Ha Long Bay, a three-and-a-half-hour drive to the north-east coast.
Finding a boat on which to stay for a few nights is easy - there are plenty of travel agents in Hanoi with deals. I opt for a larger luxury boat with about 30 cabins, but on reflection wish I had chosen a smaller junk.
The jostling crowds of tourists around the wharf are overwhelming. Only when my boat (the Ha Long Emotion) set sail into the bay did the beauty of the place begin to emerge. Strange-shaped islands - there are 2,000 exquisite limestone 'karsts' - rise from the flat calm waters of the Gulf of Tonkin.
 Happily there are no crowds on the islands of Cat Ba national park, and the beauty of the place is dizzying. I paddle a kayak around isolated lagoons accessed through watery grottoes. You don't have to be super-fit - I take to it like a duck to hoisin sauce.
Nearby is Fairy Story Lake Cave. Squeezing through narrow tunnels in the pitch dark, we pop out into a stupendous cavern riddled with stalactites and stalagmites - and a resident spider the size of my hand.
But it's the small water villages that really entrance me. Like brightly coloured garden sheds floating on blue oil drums they house whole communities of fishermen and pearl fishers, and even have schools and floating shops. The entire village is towed into a sheltered lagoon during the typhoon season.
Back on my own floating home I settle down, beer in hand, and watch the sunset. Deep red dramatically fading to pink... just like the politics of Vietnam.

Hello Hieu,

Greetings from the U.S. So sorry it has taken so long to send you an E-Mail, but we have all been
getting back to normal here...working and enjoying our beautiful spring weather.

Ron and I went to visit Lynn and Pat and Weibe and Teri last week. We looked the pictures of our
trip to Viet Nam and remembered all of the wonderful times we had there. Thank you so much for everything
you did to make our trip so fantastic. We will never forget you or your kindness.
Wiebe is trying to get all of our pictures on a CD disc. If he is successful, we will try to send
some of them to you. We have many good ones of you! I am not very good at working on the computer, so I will have to wait for someone else to do it.
Teri(dark hair) lost her camera in Cambodia and we are all sad. With her artists eye I am sure she had some wonderful shots. Luckily, the rest of us has some good ones,too. I hope you are busy giving many tours. We miss you and Nhi. We are hoping to arrange for Nhi to come here and visit us some day soon. It is hard to make the arrangements, but we would love for her to see where we live and to have the chance to visit Jessnga for a while. Yesterday I went to visit Jessnga at her new nail shop. It is very beautiful and she seems to have a lot of business. I think she will be very successful Again, thank you, Hieu, for making our trip to
Viet Nam such a great one. We will always think of
you fondly.

Your Mom, Terri

Dear Thanh!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful Vietnam holiday!!
Rick and I enjoyed it immensely!! It was an incredible trip with many
memories. I will totally recommend this to my friends. I will let you know if anyone is planning to go so you can set an itinerary for them.

Just a few things....
Hien was great!! He is such an amazing guy! He really looked after us and catered the trip to our needs. Rick really enjoyed his company!
Thong was ok too. We found him a bit too serious than what we were used to with Hien. We recommend that he becomes more relaxed with clients to make the trip more enjoyable. All-in-all, he was good. Minh was awesome too!! He has that young spirit that really shines thru to the guests!! He too was very good at accommodating us with all our needs. He was wonderful!!
The drivers were excellent too!! (especially our last driver in Ho Chi > Minh). Very safe and reliable!!

Thanh I just want to say the trip was an absolute success! The hotels were great too (especially Palm Garden Resort!!). I would recommend the itinerary in the future to have more time in the Hoi An Region as it is sooo beautiful! Tourists love the beach...another day beach front would
have been ideal!

Thank you,
Take care and I will totally recommend you to future clients!!

ATTENTION : Giang Nam Nguyen

Ken and I would like to thant you for a wonderful trip to Vietnam. WE flew
out of Hanoi on April 23 after 14 wonderful days.

At each stop along the way we were met by excellent guides who were
efficient and helpful. Your drivers were truly excellent and need to be
congratulated. The hotels were also of the highest quality. And lastly the
tour encorporated all the many and varied wonders that make Vietnam such an
interesting place to visit.

There is only one suggestion. Perhaps the train trip from Hue to Hanoi
could be optional . Travellers could chose to either take the train or to
fly. The hygiene on the train was a worry.

Another small suggestion. Perhaps each tour guide could carry some water in
the car for the travellers to purchase as sometimes we were too busy to buy
extra water.

Once again many thanks for an outstanding tour. Our elderly friends were
delighted with their experience and I know thay are going to tell everyone
about you and your tour.

Dear Mr. Le Thuc,
We would like to say thank you for your tour, we have had very good time in Vietnam.
We will inform to our friends about your tour, we were very satisfied with the itinerary.
We however had a bit of trouble each time we joined with a new group as they all had a ticket or receipt and we were the only ones without a ticket, but Ms Thu Hong(Asia Pacific Tour) helped us with this situation.
Once again, we thank you and Ms Thu Hong too..

Some weeks ago I and my wife visited Vietnam and it was your company that arrange the trip for us.

Everything was grate, and I should appreciate if you can send me the owners of the company (or some of the owners deputies) “private e-mail address”.

The reason for this special requirement is that we want to send some short lines and comments from our trip.

Dear Mr Giang Nam,

Many thanks for your organisation during our recent tour. The itinerary,
guides and drivers were very good. Overall, the accommodation was good
with the exception of the Empress Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City where the
rooms were sub-standard. We would have been better off paying more for a
better, more central hotel.

Dear Mr Thanh Do

Our tour in Vietnam is over. My group went back to Australia yesterday and I stay in Vietnam for two more weeks.

I would like to tell you that your company provided the best guide, the best driver and the best service to our group. I used a different company in Hoi An and a different company in Ho Chi Minh City. We travelled all over Vietnam and Cambodia and of all the companies used, yours was the best.

Mr Tu is a very professional guide and all my clients enjoyed being taken around by him. Mr Van was a very good driver and all my group felt safe with him.

I would be happy to do business with you again in the future.

Happy new year to you.

enyoyed very much our trip in Vietnam. It is a country we really like, the
