Some tips for a better vacation in Vietnam from Chan May Port.
Since the only way to get to Hue is traveling by private cars, it’s incredibly essential that you choose the right agent to book. According to our experience, visitors should work with local agents instead of others.
First of all, a local agent can give you a much more affordable price as there are no third parties taking part in your trip.
The quality is also much better as their local guides understand thoroughly this area. They have more knowledge and experience than any other overseas tour guides provided by other traveling agents.
Last but not least, working with a local agent will give you much more authentic and unique experience than what other cruise ship service can offer. You will no longer face overpriced issues or overrated attractions that waste your time and money.
Moreover, a local agent can also provide many insights of your desired destinations that others cannot know such as the weather, the traffic status, etc. Having these details will be extremely beneficial for your trip!
- Rent a bike: The total area of Pho Co Hoi An is about 2 kilometers square. In this area, there are a few streets that don’t allow vehicles, so going by bike is a great idea. Although you cannot ride in those streets mentioned above, you can still take the bike with you. If you go by motorbike, you’ll have to park it outside with an additional fee. The price to rent a bike for the whole day is 25.000 VND to 30.000 VND.
