Accommodation in Vietnam: 

We always start our accommodation research with HotelsCombined. 

This site makes it super easy to compare accommodation across various booking engines so that you can simply pick the best price for the accommodation of your choice.

We also often book through sites such as Airbnb, especially when we travel in Europe as it allows for massive savings on accommodation.

We also recommend you book a cruise for both Halong Bay as well as Mekong River. You can find a selection of fabulous Mekong River cruises to book.

Flights to Vietnam

We personally book our flights on Cheapo Air, we find that they are often the cheapest (even in comparison to Skyscanner).  Click to check on prices for your flights.

Travel Insurance

We never travel without travel insurance with Safety Wing. We have claimed on our travel insurance more than once, claims that would have cost us A LOT out of our own pockets.  Don’t skimp out on insurance!! 

Safety Wing offers incredible plans and is one of the few insurance companies that allow you to grab insurance when you are already travelling!  Click to check on their plans and prices.
