A wonderful trip to Cambodia and Vietnam for 10 ni / 11 days with my wife was made possible by Vietnamtour.in. They planned and customised the trip as per our specific requirements and made it a memorable life long experience. We started from Siem Reap - Cambodia, followed by Ho Chi Minh city, Danang- Hoian, Hanoi, Halong Bay in Vietnam. Visa on arrival at both the country was simple process as initial documentations were already done by Vietnamtour. At each of these places, we were received by the tour guide and driver with excellent SUV carrying a name playcard giving a feeling of grandiose. Our accommodation was in 5 star Hotels - Angkor Miracle Resort in Siem Reap, Novotel Saigon in HCM city, Sunrise Premium Resorts & Spa in Hoian, Movenpick in Hanoi and La Regina Legend Cruise in Halong Bay. Trips to the monuments, tourist attractions or shopping requirements were meticulously planned and taken care of by them. The memories and experiences of the Mekong River boat cruise and the cruise on Halong Bay will be treasured by us all our lives. We got a taste of the authentic, traditional local cuisine in both the countries when we were taken for lunch to local houses . Its worth experiencing the simplicity, great hospitality and family values of common inhabitants. Our entire experience of 11 days was made possible by the sincerity, dedication, hard work and meticulous planning by an individual... Mr Trung Hoang, our Travel Consultant. He was always available to us on mob / W/A from the time of planning till we returned home. It gave us a sense of security in a foreign country without knowing the local language for any unforeseen situation. We are extremely thankful to him . Lovely Experience, Wonderful People, Great Hospitality is what we shall always remember. THANK YOU Vietnam Tours, our friends in those two unknown country Mr Trung Vũ Hoàng and the Wonderful people of Cambodia and Vietnam.

Had a very pleasant and satisfying trip with excellent cooperation from vietnamtour.in staff. The English speaking guides seem quite knowledgeable and organizers always care for comfort. Although we personally take all types of meat under the sun the organizer always serves us Hindu meal. Definitely worth the expenses and we would strongly recommend people particularly from Kolkata to participate.

A Response from Seni World

Choosing the best time to visit Sri Lanka is quite tricky as it depends on the part of the country you’re going to. It a year-round destination with consistent warmth and lots of sunshine with an average temperature between 22 - 31℃. In general, the best time to visit the west and south coasts is between December and April, while on the east coast, it is best visited from May to October.

A Response from Seni World

In general, Sri Lanka is a safe country to visit but with any international travel, remember to pay attention to your surroundings. Do not let your valuables out of your eyes and be cautious in local crowds and public areas to avoid pickpockets.

A Response from Seni World

There is no restriction in bringing money in foreign currencies into Sri Lanka. This sum could be in TCs, Bank drafts or currency notes. However, if the total exceeds US$ 15,000, that sum must be declared to the Sri Lanka Customs.

A Response from Seni World

You can exchange cash (USD or AUD) in Sri Lanka at hotels, trustworthy money changers or banks. At hotels, the exchange rate could be higher while in banks or money changers you will pay less. There are also exchange offices at international airports where you can change your money at any time.

A Response from Seni World

You can easily exchange INR to USD in India at a good rate. However, to convert INR to LKR in your country, you have to pay a bad rate as not many Forex counters maintain a stock of LKR in India.

Moreover, after the trip, you can easily use your spare USD, but for LKR, you have to convert it to USD before getting it converted to INR.
