    Hello Andrzej, This list is really helpful. I am picking out places to stay four our upcoming Vietnam trip. One question, how reliable is Agoda for hotel bookings? I am always skeptical of sites that don’t charge you upfront because I worry they’ll cancel last minute. A friend had a terrible experience of booking through booking.com as when she landed in Sri Lanka, she was told her booking was cancelled. Or should I just book through the hotel website?

      Hi Richa, we use Agoda for ALL our Asia bookings and have never ever had a problem 🙂 But if you are worried you can book through their direct website too. I love using a site like Agoda though, because the more you book the more you build up a bit of a reward system for benefits.
