Vietnam Airlines to fly direct to Hanoi and Saigon

The dates are in and the England Cricket Team are playing Test Matches against Sri Lanka in Galle between 26th and 30th March and in Colombo 2nd and 6th April.

We can pretty much guarantee now that there will not be a room free within an hour of Galle during those dates. There are just not enough rooms to accommodate all the people who will want to watch cricket in one of the world’s most exotic Test match venues. It’s going to be good – but please get in touch with us NOW if you want to get one of our tours booked.

Experience Travel’s top 5 hotels in Vietnam:

Vietnam is a funny place for hotels. There is nothing like the variety of Thailand or even Cambodia and the vestiges of state ownership still affect the feel and design of many hotels. A sort of undynamic fustiness still pervades some of Vietnam’s more venerable institutions!
Like everything in Vietnam though, the quality of hotels is changing fast and there are some very dynamic and really great hotels around now. There are more on the way too. Here are 5 of the best that I saw on my recent (very busy) fact finding mission!
In no particular order, these 5 deserve a mention!

Rick Stein’s Far Eastern Odyssey – a review:

Rick Stein did us a massive favour by doing a programme that focused, almost exclusively, on the area that we specialise in. Apart from Laos, all our bases were covered – Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia and of course, Thailand. A big ‘thank you’ to Rick then, as we saw a definite increase in inquiries from the sort of people keen to do something a little different and sample the true flavours of the region – something which we can deliver!
