Good Day Mrs Bich

You are 100% correct – back to work, but with fantastic memories of Vietnam

Vietnam is truly beautiful. All the people we met were kind and friendly.

While we were travelling we ran a travel blog for our family and friends back home. If you are interested, it is here:

Some feedback on our trip for you and your company

1.      Mrs Bich.

Without you  none of this would have happened.

With your expertise, organisation and good advice we had a fantastic time.

All arrangements, guides, travels, flights, hotels etc  were well arranged and there was no major issue that made our holiday any less enjoyable. 

We Highly recommend you!

2.      Our Guides

Shangi in Sapa, Anthony in Hanoi. Vin in Hue and Honian,  Vouthy in Siem Reap – they were all outstanding.

All had good knowledge, engaged with us, and put the extra effort in to make our stay that much better. We were very impress with all.

Special mention is needed for Vouthy in Siem Reap – He is passionate and very knowledgeable about his history, his country, and has a good grasp of English and a very good nature. He has a way of explaining and linking the legends and factual history. He really stood out and we highly recommend him.

Mr Mingh in Saigon is a kind, soft spoken and well natured gentleman, but lacks engagement/communication  skills I believe are necessary for a good tour guide.   He is more passive than active but we still enjoyed out time with him.

3.      Hotels

·       Silkpath in Hanoi – excellent. Good location, Good staff. Good food and clean rooms.

·         Bhaya Cruise on Halong bay – Outstanding! Rooms, boat, food, staff – everything was excellent. Will go again.

·         Victoria Spa – very good (for some reason rooms have no air-conditioning, and been put on the ground floor we were not happy to sleep with or leave windows open for air). Good food.

·         Siagon Morin in Hue – excellent. Beautiful woodwork and aged French look. Breakfast in the garden.

·         Palm Garden Resort in Hoian – Fantastic, on the sea and glad we spent 4 nights there. Staff outstanding, food excellent as was evening dining. A little out of the way, but they operate a hotel bus to get to town. Very good swimming beach.

·         Grand Hotel in Saigon – other old French style hotel. We were very happy with our room and hotel in general. Good pool area with evening BBQ on offer. Location good and easy to walk downtown.

·         Angkor Paradise in Siem Reap. A dump. Reviews in Trip Advisor are 100% correct and nothing has improved. Hotel creates a very good first impression and then everything thereafter is downhill. Main complaints were air-conditioning – did not work, Water – no water, some water, no hot, some warm, only cold, then very hot. Dripped out the tap or shower, then rushed out, then stopped . It was a lottery. We appreciate Asia-King offered  to change hotel for us, but we decided that to pack, check-out, go somewhere else, check-in, unpack etc  would waste too much time, so we’ll bear it – just one more night and just make the best of it.  I think it was the right decision.

4.      Train to SAPA

Other than this was an “experience” – their web site claims “Deluxe wooden 4 berths with embark on these carriages; visitors will indulge in the pleasure of the warm decoration and safety. These carriages feature a large space to fit your luggage, a large corridor and hot water suppliers on two sides of the carriages. Locks are carefully made to be sure you never lose things when beholding the panoramic views of ever-changing scenery. Each carriage can accommodate 28 passengers with the special care of Pole-star guiding staff in from the ground to the time you settle down. Each cabin has 4 berths; all berths are air-conditioned with water and breads for individual. The berths are remodeled to be soft sleeper with air conditioning. All cabins are air-conditioned, equipped with safe lock and bright,blarge corridors. Facilities are modern and well-fitted to bring  you a good night on the train.”

Well – quite frankly this is not at all the truth.

Facilities were terrible, old and very worn  – sleeper lights did not work, power-points  did not work, Staff  were very rude, and  going to Sapa, the air-conditioning went off at midnight and we become a sauna, toilets were utterly disgusting and unusable, so we had to use another carriage.

Coming back to Hanoi we had a very loud banging sound – every 1 min to 2 min. It was very loud and came from under the carriage and lasted the whole trip. Staff did not care about the noise. Again we had no power-points and berth light also did not work. Again, staff did not care at all. Toilets were cleaner on this trip.

Train trip overall – although we take it as a very unique experience, I feel it is very wrong to publish such un-true facts on their web-site.

I would say it is  more like  back-packers accommodation.

5.      Overall

Every part we visited had it own unique charm and appeal, so it is not easy to single out any one area that was better than another.

It was ALL GOOD –  a very memorable and  remarkable holiday.

The guides were excellent, we enjoyable the local food, it is a beautiful country, rich history, but with the most intriguing road-rules!

People are kind people and there is a lot of poverty, yet happy people.

We would most definitely visit again – just  take it a bit slower in places.

Thank you very much Mrs Bich.

Wish you and Asia-King good success.

Kind regards

Dear Ms Bich,
I just wanted to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip down the Mekong on the Indochine. The boat was very comfortable, the crew were always friendly and willing to help even when we couldn't understand each other and Minh was a great tour guide. The food on the boat was excellent. And the Mekong was endlessly fascinating.

The only thing we didn't like was the insects! They were ferocious and we all suffered fairly severe allergic reactions to whatever it was that bit us. It might be a good idea to warn future travellers just so they're prepared.

If you like, I'd be happy to write a review for

Thanks for your help with all the arrangements.

Dear Nam

We have just returned from the trip below. We have to report that your service was exceptional, better than we could ever have imagined. Not one single problem on the entire trip, always someone to meet us, even when we were delayed. Every guide was pleasant, friendly, very informative, helpful and flexible in meeting our requests.

We congratulate you on your service and would have no hesitation in using your services again should we ever travel back to Asia, we would and will whole heartedly recommend your company to anyone travelling to Asia.

Thank you for organising out trip, a wonderful experience.

Hello Bich

I just wanted to say thank you for all your assistance in arranging our honeymoon.

All of our plans went smoothly and as normal our guides were fantastic.  Our guide in Chiang Mai was excellent.  Where we had a free day or afternoon he let us know things we could do and gave us some options for additional tours on a day-to-day basis.  This enabled us to see and do a number of things that we would never have experienced otherwise, such as the Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai.  Our guide in Chiang Rai was very knowledgeable on local customs and very well versed in current affairs.  We learnt a lot from her.

This is the second time I have used Asia King for our holidays and as usual everything was perfect.

Dear Mr Nam, 


We want to thank you for a fabulous job planning our trip in SE Asia. 


Everything worked perfectly. We enjoyed all the hotels, the wonderful restaurants, the helpful and informative guides, and the interesting tours that were scheduled.  The entire trip was without a flaw. It was perfect!!!! Our favorite guide was Khim Vuthy.  He spoke english very well and  gave us a lot of information. We also liked Minh in Saigon.  The other guides were all very helpful and responsible but their english was harder to understand. Our only suggestion for an itinerary change was that we didn't have enough time in Hoi-An, as we arrived in the evening and left at 6AM.  The boat on Halong Bay was The Best!!!!  There were so many special moments and we have memories for a lifetime!

Thank you again for all your help.

Hi Nam

We have returned from our Vietnam holiday, the tour was fantastic, everything flowed like clockwork and the guides were wonderful. The accommodation was also excellent, and the choice of resturant meals provided with the tour were very good. I think that Vietnam is a wonderful country and the people are helpful and friendly and I have a lot of resprct for their good humored resiliance.

I have a number of friends who are interested in travelling to Vietnam, I will reccomend both the country and Asia King to them. A big thank you to you, your guides, the drivers and to Asia King.

Dear Ms. Bich,

We are back home now, and I wanted to write to thank you for the amazing tour you provided. Everything, from the booking until our departure, was well organized, the guides were very helpful and friendly, and we are very happy to have known those beautiful places. I want to thank Mr Dao, who picked us up from the hotel, and took us to Le Conchinchien, and then to Chau Doc, because he was specially kind and hard working. All the staff and the services in Cambodia were really great as well.  Once again, THANK YOU!

Dear Ms Bich,

I finally have had the time to let you know what a truely, fantastic service you provide. We had the most amazing 15 days in Vietnam, thanks to your well organised company. from the moment we arrived in Saigon to the day we left, every detail of our trip was planned to perfection. As you know we travelled with 4 children and my parents. The trip was a fantastic cultural experience for all. We did things and ate meals we woould never have done if we had not gone through your company. Our Guides Minh, Tung, Ha and Hung were most delightful and my children will remember them all forever. our drivers most importantantly were just as amazing and we admired the the two drivers in both Saigon and Hanoi for their amazing skill.

Minh, our guide in Saigon was fantastic, he had a great personality and my family enjoyed his company. Tung in Nha trang, was the most adorable guide on our trip. being young, he related very well to our girls and we had so much fun in his company. We wanted to bring him home with us!! His english was very good and he gave us an amazing insight to the central part of your beautiful country.

Ha was clearly the most well educated and knowelgeable guide we had. She was very keen to impart all that she knew about her country and my chidren said they had learnt so much from her. She was very easy to understand and we enjoyed her company very much.
Hung too was a very good guide. We enjoyed, very much, his company.
From an Aussie perspective I would describe your company as a "Well oiled machine", your trip planning was perfect. We had the right amount of rest, or free and easy days, as well as many well planned and most enjoyable cultural days.
We do intend on revisiting your country soon and will definately go through your company. We can't wait to see the places that we did not see this time.
Thankyou again

Dear Ms Yen

Forgive my correspondence to you in English since it is my wife who is more comfortable in her native language, French. We wish to express our complete satisfaction with the guide and driver appointed to us for our sojourn through the north of Vietnam. Mr Huy has a graduate's grasp of historical events, times and dates. He was at all times at pains to be punctual, neat and tidy and with perfect manners. Important matters for us, the older generation. Our driver was quiet, polite and with a good driving sense that assured us at all times that we were safe while in his vehicle.

Mr Huy embodies all that is promising in the young people of Viet Nam and a portent of the great future that lies ahead in the next twenty years for your country as an emerging non- aligned nation in the Asia region.

We cannot praise Mr Huy too highly and appreciate your efforts to guarantee that our driver remained with us until our departure.The bond that develops between a small group and their guide and driver is important to western travellers,especially while visiting another culture with different accents and sensitivities towards differing social mores.

Again, many thanks to you and to the Agency and especially to our guide Mt Huy and to our driver , for a warm and friendly insight into today's Viet Nam

Dear Bich,


On behalf of my travelling companion and myself, I wish to record our gratitude for the perfect 19 day trip we enjoyed during November with Asia King Travel.


We could not have had a better trip, everything was perfect, the airport collections and transfers, the drivers, the guides the accommodation , the complete package was amazing. The only problem we had was our pick up from Bangkok airport on the way back home and I arranged that myself, in future I will leave it to the experts.


Thank you Bich, you are a Star, I don’t believe the trip would have been the success it was without your dedicated input and organisation skills. I have no hesitation in recommending your company and especially you to my friends and have already passed on your email address to a friend who is coming to Vietnam on her Honeymoon next year.


I hope to be returning to your fabulous country in the near future and will contact you to  organise another trip for me.


Many thanks to you and all your team that made our trip so memorable.


Kind regards,

Dearest Ms Bich,

Sorry I do not know your married name? & Congratulations on your recent wedding. I am writing a quick note to tell you how wonderfull I think you are, in making our trip the best ever. Your company Asia King should be very proud of you as you have gone far beyond requirements of your job. We most certainly will be recommending many other travellers to you, as we did all thru our trip. Every guide & driver you supplied to us were fantastic & we had alot of laughs most enjoyable. I am going to New-Zealand in 2 days time to see my father so I will write a decent letter upon my return to Australia Our trip was from 25 Sep - 14 Oct 09 Code 1954

Dear Ms  Bich,

This is just an email to say that I am now back in Hong Kong in front of my laptop having had a most enjoyable visit to your country. Many thanks for all the arrangements which all went very smoothly. I will certainly pass on your Agency to any friends that are thinking of visiting. I will also say that the north west is well worth visiting. You may be interested in the following points for future reference

The train is a necessary but not an enjoyable experience  Elderly people have difficulty with the top bunks. The train is noisy all the night long because of the uneven track

The Victoria Hotel is probably an unnecessarily expensive  experience for most travellers  I am sure there is a good three star which would be cheaper

I came back by road becuse I wanted to see the scenery between the highlands and the plain this was very rewarding.It takes a long time-- about nine hours-- but a break for lunch at  a  good local restaurant in nice surroundings would shorten the journey. This was  my own choice and the guide HUY was most helpful in arranging this for me. As I said in his report card "I was an exacting customer"and he did his best to please. His performance as a guide was amenable,English very good and knowledgeable about local things  for example in pointing out the indigo plant which I had never seen before but which used to be important in HK.

I was fussy about wanting to eat Viet food all the way. This was enjoyable and interesting perhaps you should ask your guests what they want ? Don't assume that everyone from europe wants to eat "fish and chips"

The visit to the Mausoleum well worth while and Ha long just what I wanted to see although I skipped the grotto because I have seen so many limestone caves in my life

All in all thank you and Asia King, and thank you so much too for dealing patiently with me in good arranging my visit at such short notice.

Dear Tu

I write to thank you on behalf of my party for an outstanding trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. From the moment we set foot in Hanoi to our departure from Phnom Penh everything went exactly to plan and was to the highest standard. The travel arrangements went like clockwork. The flights, transfers, pick-ups etc were all efficient and punctual and meant that no time was wasted on any part of the journey. The hotels were of an excellent standard with service to match. Our five guides were extremely knowledgeable, informative, helpful and friendly. The dining arrangements were very good, allowing us to experience a wide selection of Vietnamese and Cambodian food in local restaurants. Our programme was full to overflowing but, as we were an individual tour, always flexible enough to meet our demands. The sights we visited were both interesting and spectacular, and our guides knew how to get the best from them.

Finally, to yourself. I have travelled widely throughout the world but have never had such an excellent tour organiser as you. Your ability to build a programme which was tailored to our wishes; you overall efficiency; the speed of your responses to my emails, and your friendly. personal way of working all made this trip by far the easiest to organise.

I will have no hesitation in recommending you and Asia King to friends.

I wish you and your family every success and very best wishes for the future.

Warmest regards

Hi Tu

We are now back in our home in Spain after a fantastic vacation in Vietnam and Cambodia. We wish to thank you for the time and effort you and your team at Asia King Travel put into our trip to make it a most memorable experience, the guides, drivers and their transport were of high standard, all of which had a high standard in  there knowledge of there country and of the sites of which they guided.The hotels which were part of the trip were of excellent quality and the services they provided were all carried out with the utmost courtesy and the broadest of smiles,(we just loved it). The train Journey we would not have missed,(being in the middle of Tet holiday,our timing was perfect).
Our R&R! on Phu Quoc in the Thien Hai Son was wonderful so restful after the busy pace of our mainland tour, a place to absorb all that we had seen.
The Cambodian adventure guides,drivers hotels and sight seeing excursions were of the same excellent quality.
Thanks once again for the planning of a fantastic trip, I will recommend your services to anybody.

We had a fantastic time and were very happy with the accommodation, food and effort put into making our trip comfortable & enjoyable. Please thank our fabulous guides – Truong in Hanoi, Hahn in Hue and Minh in Ho Chi Minh City. Each one of them was informative and friendly – making us feel very welcome and special.

Hi Tu Quyen !

Thanks to all your hard work and organization we had a perfect trip to Cambodia and Vietnam.  Everything went so smoothly without any problems, it was truly a vacation. We loved Sapa and the cycling thru the country side.  If you ever have someone that wants references please feel free to give them our name and e-mail or even our telephone number 206 528 2171. Our guides were all great. 

I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to meet when we were in Hanoi.  I was looking forward to meeting  you  after all the work you did on our trip.

I am still trying to  edit all of my photos all 900 of them!

Again thank you and if we can ever do anything to help you please  let us know.

Dear Mr Nam Nguyen

We are still on our journey! After Cambodia we visited Hong Kong, Dubai, Cairo, Ireland and are now in the UK. We'll be home in New Zealand on the 31st October.

Our visit to Vietnam and Cambodia could not have been bettered. The hotels could not be faulted, your appointed guides looked after us very well indeed and everywhere we went we received a friendly reception.  Our pre-conceived perception of Vietnam as a perhaps harsh regime was proved wrong as we came through the airport - a big smile from the Immigration Officer and 'Welcome to Vietnam' was our first surprise, and a smile at every subsequent greeting made for a very pleasant trip.
We were rather overwhelmed by the traffic in Ho Chi Minh City and wouldn't wish to stay there longer. However, the sights and bomb craters at Cu Chi reinforced our feeling that the so-called American War was a travesty that should never have happened! Alas, they are repeating their mistakes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Pandaw cruise up the Mekong River was a highlight. We became very comfortable with the routine and the dining. It was also a pleasant surprise that drinks from the bar - apart from wine and exotic spirits - were free of charge, so we didn't have bar charges at the end of the cruise. Siem Reap was delightful, excellent hotel, sights that we came to see and a thoughtful guide.

So, sorry - we cannot suggest any improvements!

A further trip into your area is unlikely in the short term - and at our age, the long term always has question marks . However, we will always recommend your services when our experiences are discussed

Thank you again.
Yours Sincerely

Gwyn Akeroyd,  New Zealand

Hello Tu Quyen

Dear Tu Quyen,

I hope this finds you well.
Yes we are finally back home, we arrived back on the 15th September. We have been travelling to Asia for the past 20 years but this was the first time to Vietnam and we enjoyed the experience very much.

Firstly we thank you Tu Quyen, as our personal contact at Asia King Travel your level of service was excellent. Your employers are fortunate to have staff like you. We are glad you liked the flowers, it was a just small token of our appreciation for the effort you put in to make our visit a memorable one. Missing Sapa was at first a disappointment, but Mai Chau more than made up for it, we loved it. All of your staff were very good, including the drivers, but a special mention for Mr. Hoa ..... he is a credit to your company, not only for his level of professionalism but also his happy and friendly nature made us feel very comfortable and welcome.

We were very happy with the level of accommodation and quality of the food at all times. We would definitely use you services again if required and would also recommend you to any of our friends. Our very best wishes to you and please pass on our regards best wishes to Mr Hoa.
Thanks again Tu Quyen,

Dear Quyen,

We have now been home for 2 weeks and have just celebrated our sons wedding day.

Our trip to Vietnam has been the very best holiday and overseas travel experience that we have ever had.  We cannot stop telling our friends and anyone who will listen just how wonderful it was.

The itinerary that you presented for us was so diverse and so well organised we were continually surprised by everything your country had to offer.

We appreciated the punctuality of tour guides and drivers, the cleanliness of the vehicles and the broad knowledge of each guide for their particular region.

We loved the food, had lots of fun at the cooking class in Hoi An, and loved the resturants that were selected along the way.  We felt very special and thoroughly enjoyed these dining experiences.

The hotels were very comfortable with wonderful breakfasts.  The Empress hotel in HCM city did not come up to the standard of the others that we stayed at, but I have noticed that Asia King is only using The Empress as a 2 star now.

The highlight of our trip was the Mai Chau trek with Mr Wah Hoa as our guide, and Tu who accompanied us and prepared meals along the way. We felt totally immersed in the culture of the H'mong and White Thai people, appreciating the natural landscape and farming areas that we passed through.  Not to mention the hospitality of the families that we visited. 

We hope to visit again in the next couple of years, including Laos and other areas in North West Vietnam.  We thoroughly enjoyed Mr Wah Hoa's company and would join his treks or adventures at any time.  Could you please correct me if I have spelt his name wrong, as I would like to have the correct spelling for my photo album.

After hearing some horror stories from other travellers, travelling with other companies with regard to handwritten names at the airports, we noticed and appreciated the professionalism of Asia King with our names clearly and consistently printed by computer printout at every pick up point.  (Not able to be copied by Taxi drivers).

Thank you once again, and we will contact you for our future travel arrangements and will happily and confidently recommend you to our family and friends.

Nam / Thuy,

We returned from our vacation on Friday and just wanted to thank all at Asia King for your help and advice in arranging the holiday. Everything was perfect, the transfers smooth and our guide Tai was very good and made our holiday as enjoyable as possible.

We will definately be returning to Vietnam in the near future and will contact Asia King again. We will also recommend you to our friends.

Thanks again,

Dear Ms. Khanh Van,

Irena and I were VERY pleased with the service that we received from Asia King.  All the arrangements were absolutely perfect.  In 25 days of travelling we were only let down once, when a driver failed to show up at The Majestic in HCMC to take us to David Taylor's house, at the end of our second day in the city.  However the situation was recovered by your excellent guide, Da Lat, who made sure that we got a back-up driver within the hour.  Da Lat, knowing that David Taylors house was difficult to find, also spend some of his own time locating the house to make sure that he was not late the following day, which we thought was exemplary service.

I do not have time right now to write comments in full, but I intend to write down some of my thoughts and comments in detail when we get back to Spain at the end of February.  We are currently in Singapore, so we are not yet home!

Thank you again to you and all the staff at Asia King for such a wonderful holiday.  We have many happy memories.  We will most certainly recommend you to any
friends travelling to Vietnam in the future.

Best regards,
Peter and Irena Greaves

Hello Ms. Khanh Van:  

The tour from start to finish was excellent.  I had a mis expectation on the Victoria sleeper train but I now know we got first class accommodations.   Service, accommodations and amenities at the Hanoi Melia Hotel was more than we expected.  A visit to the old Hanoi Prison was a surprise extra that we did not expect.  Sapa was very good but it was raining and foggy but very interesting and scenic.  Also the Walk and Trekking to Cat Cat was too much for me and my Mrs. but the the other youngsters enjoyed the walk.  The tour guide made adjustments.  Overall it was very good.  Halong Bay Cruise aboard the IndoChina Sail was awesome and I am glad to have seen it.   The stops at the Humanity Centers hit deep in my heart on what harm Agent Orange did to the people of Vietnam.

Mr. Ha did an excellent job even on arranging and explaining the Vietnam Visa Process.  We had no trouble and everything went exactly as he described.   
I will  recommend this tour to my friends and customers.

Dear Mr Ha/Ms Van

I was very happy with the service provided by your guide and driver. They were extremely professional and really made my trip a great experience.

In particular the guide I had for Mekong and Chi Chi tunnels was excellent as he really went out of his way to provide information. His cheerful happy manner was nice and his level of english was excellent. I think you should use his services more as his good funny personality made the trip.

The guide I had for the city tour was very sweet . We still had a good day and she gave me a good insight into the city.

So I would happily recommend your company to my friends as my trip went very well.

Kind regards

Dear Mr. Nguyen Viet Nam,  Sales Department Manager

In October, your company, in conjunction with our local travel agency - Valerie Wilson Travel (Lois Dudley) - arranged for my wife and I to be guided privately in a number of places throughout Thailand in connection with our Southeast Asian travels.  We had a wonderful trip,  met many interesting people in our travels and had a lovely travel experience.  Your company fulfilled our every expectation and made our time in Thailand very special.

All of your recommendations were excellent and the guides were all very knowledgeable and courteous.  We wanted to tell you that one guide, Ms. Saipin Chuathong (Kay), was especially memorable for us as her enthusiasm, attentiveness and language capabilities made our time in Chang Mai very special.  Please thank her again for us for making our limited time in Thailand especially meaningful.

We wish you and your colleagues a happy and prosperous New Year.

Hello Mr. ( the young) Ha,

Thank you for your note.  We had a fantastic vacation in your country.  It was a joy to see all the varied terrains and peoples of the country.  It also gave us great insight into our shared history. 

Your guides and drivers were excellent.  They took very good care of us and showed a great sense of responsibility.  My suggestion though is to give us travelers a suggested tipping range.  Both a low end and a high end.  Within your document that confirms the itinerary ,  might be a good place to add some info about tipping amounts. 

Also the restaurants that we ate at were good but a bit redundant.  I know you were probably trying to find us the cleanest  places with good food.  In Nha Trang we ate at the same restaurant twice, which though the food was fine it was essentially the same meal the next day.  I personally like to try a variety of restaurants.  Also, in Da lat, the restaurant at the Sofitel palace, as a white European-American traveler, should not be missed.  Though it is somewhat French -Vietnamese fusion it was one of the most romantic with the best food and service I have had all over the world.  This should be suggested as a place to eat but you don't  necessarily have to include it in your program as it is not cheap.

Shopping,  one or two of those government backed shopping places is fine, it would have been nice to find some more authentic  Vietnamese shopping experiences.  I feel we paid on the high end.

I also would have liked to visit more of the smaller non-tourist villages, even if it were just a drive/walk through.  I felt like we were kept on the tourist route, which based on the time we had was fine.

The Horison is not the best hotel for tourists because it is so far from the tourist area and traffic being what it is in Hanoi is somehwat problematic.  It would have been nice to be able to walk into the old quarter from the hotel.  I realize this was a last resort because of the busy season.  I think though I would have considered a good 4 star hotel near the old quarter.  Food in Hanoi was the same we ate in the same restaurant twice that was okay,  certainly no Vietnamese eating in these restaurants. There must have been some fine Vietnamese Restaurants in Hanoi.

But again these comments are all in retrospect.   Maybe a suggestion would be to look through some of the Vietnam tourist books for suggested restaurants and make these options for your clients to choose from.

We had a wonderful trip and would highly recommend your service.

Thank you again for everything.  It was a truly memorable experience especially the cruise on the Valentine.  Just the best!.

Hello Mr. Ha,
Nice to hear from you again.  I have been busy telling everyone about our adventures in Vietnam. I have already given your name and phone number to 2 people who are thinking of visiting there.

You know that we loved our trip.  There are very few things I would change now that I have been there.

I hope you are well.  I bet it is cooler now than when we were in Hanoi!
Regards to you and all your lovely staff, 


Dear Sir,

Thank you for your excellent tour. All went very well & we were very pleased with the whole experience. Your personnel choices were excellent.

Vietnam - wonderful vacation we will highly recommend it & you to our friends.

Again Thank you,
Jeff & Flo Kaffee


Dear Mr. Ha,
We had a wonderful day today in Nha Trang, in spite of rain all day - our guide Mr. Choung (spelling???) and our driver, were just terrific and we had such a good time and learned so much about this lovely area.
Everything went very well, and we appreciate your help in arranging our visit.

Mr Ha

We had a wonderful time with your tours and glad to meet you as well.Your guides were first class.

We have recommended your company to 2 ladies flying to Vietnam early Nov to Ho Chi Minh City first then to Hanoi. They were just going to organize something over there but after we talked to them I am positive they will email and book with you for Halong Bay and Sapa. If you could organize the same guides it would be appreciated. One of the ladies is Maryanne Ahlstrand who live in Rockhampton.

Dear Mr. Ha,

We're back in Beijing with wonderful pictures and memories of Vietnam.I want to thank you for the great job that you did in organizing our trip for us. The guides, the hotels, the breakfasts and service in general were excellent.I have already recommended you and your company to American friends who will be traveling to Vietnam very soon. I want to mention a couple of things that might help future visitors:

The Homestay in the Mekong Delta had two types of accommodations: 1) living with the family in their house and 2) bungalows with private shower; this was much more suitable for western tourists. All the hotels had wonderful western breakfast; the breakfast at the Glory Hote(supposed to be 4 star) had a very limited breakfast.

Poom Coom is a much more suitable Homestay for older, western tourists. It's authentic but not too primitive.

I hope that these comments help in your future plans for western tourists.

Special thanks to the Thang Long Opera Hotel; I left my camera battery there and they sent it to Ho Chi Ming City for me. Excellent service!

Dear Sirs,

last Friday we left Siem Reap after having had a very great time on board Toum Teav and in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap alike. Unfortunately we forgot to pass the questionnaire to Mr. Phat in Siem Reap before our departure.

Therefore I would like to let you know now that we regarded the whole trip as very well arranged and the hotels in general well elected. Especially the boat trip was an extraordinary experience for us. We liked the excursions, enjoyed the meals and felt ourselves comforted by Mr Serge's hospitality.

I must admit that we did not know very much about todays daily life in Cambodia Due to the trip we have learnt a lot and would really like to come back.

Thank you very much.

Kindest regards

Monika - L. and Georg Carstens


Dear Mr. Ha,

Thank you for a fantastic trip on Halong Bay. It was definitely the highlight of our two week stay in Vietnam. The junk was not only beautiful, but very well kept. The staff was very nice and the food was among the best we had while in the country. Our guide and driver took very good care of us.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to my friends and associates planning a trip to your country.

Very best regards,

Mr. Nguyen Viet Nam

We are exceptionally happy and pleased with our tours and stay provided by your Asia King Travel Co. We have nothing but praise for everything aspect of our visit in your beautiful city!

Our tour guide was the best! He was very very knowledgeable and interesting. We learned much! He prefaced every interesting site with the rich history of the past. He always concluded his explanation with present history. We hope every American Tourist will have the same good fortune we had – by hearing and having him as their tour guide.

We had two different drivers during our stay. Both were very skilled. We thank you for over-seeing everything and providing for us the BEST!

Our heartfelt gratitude to your and your entire staff.

Hello Nam
Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time my group of 35 kids had last week. Every activity that you planned was engaging and interactive. Our tour guide, Nguyen Van Phuong  was outstanding. His familiarity and knowledge of Vietnam and Hanoi City were so interesting. We were truly blessed with such a delightful guide.
This was my third trip with you at Asia King Travel and I keep coming back because of the quality of your service and moreover the excellence of the people who are so accommodating and knowledgeable. I probably have more fun on these trips than the children do! I know that my School really loved being in Hanoi because the activities were unique and captivating. The hotel accommodations were great. The variety of meals was also memorable. It was another fantastic trip and I want to thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Dear Mr.Hoang,

I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip. It was far and above what we had expected. Our tour guide, Chau, was fantastic. She thought of everything and went out of her way to do extra little things to make our trip more memorable. Her knowledge of Vietnam, professionalism, and warm and caring personality made her a first class tour guide. We enjoyed the selection of tours. I believe we saw the best of Vietnam. Our hotels were very nice and centrally located. The hotel staff were very courteous and accommodating.

Being recently widowed and traveling with another woman, we felt completely safe and did not feel the need to worry about anything. Everything was very well planned and went smoothly from start to finish. Without a doubt we will use
Asia King Travel again.

Dear Mr. Hoang,

I enjoyed very much my visit to Hanoi and Halong Bay, Saigon, the Mekong Delta and Luang Prabang. It is great if I have one more day in Saigon, in order to see the tunnels and some other sights. All hotels I stayed in, were very nice especially the hotel in Luang Prabang and the Rex Hotel in Saigon. The tour guide and driver, each one was excellent. I especially appreciate Tuan, my guide in Hanoi and Halong Bay, my guide in Luang Prabang, and my guide in Siem Reap, who suggested that I spend an afternoon at Ton Le Sap Lake. All guides and drivers were very professional.I will recommend this tour and Asia King Travel to everyone I know.

Dear Asia King Travel,

Thank you very much for all the travel arrangements that you made for our trip to Vietnam & Cambodia.
Everything was very well arranged. There was always someone waiting to pick us up at the airport/boat port or hotels. The three guides that showed us around the Mekong Delta, Phnom Penh & Siem Reap where all very helpful and knowledgeable. 

The hotels that we stayed in were all lovely hotels and at Siem Reap we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite. The Victoria hotels at Can Tho, Chau Doc and Phan Thiet are all beautiful hotels and the staff all very charming and attentive. 

We very much enjoyed the boat travel from Chau Doc to Phnom Penh and from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. On the trip from Chau Doc we were accompanied by a lady from the hotel who dealt with all the formalities for leaving Vietnam and entering Cambodia.

Thank you also for managing to get us both seats on the flight from Siem Reap to Saigon at short notice.
We very much enjoyed our holiday and will use your services next time we visit Vietnam. We would be very happy to recommend your company to others.

Best regards,
Suzanne and Brian Robbins




Dear Nam

My friend and I have just returned from our first trip to Vietnam and would like to take the time to thank you and your company for organising the hotels and internal flights. Everything ran smoothly and everyone we dealt with was friendly and professional I would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and would definitely use your services next time we return. The hotels we chose, The Majestic hotel in Saigon, The Victoria resort in Phan Thiet and The Methopole sofitel hotel in Hanoi were all fantastic and the prices we paid through your firm were much cheaper than anyone else on the market. Nam  you are number 1 ,Thank you again for all your help and making our holiday the success it was.

Many thanks

Dear Mr.Nam,


The attention and customer service that Asia King Travel provided from the initial planning stages to the actual trip to the post trip follow-up were simply outstanding! The professionalism of the staff, to the quality of the guides, to the flexibility provided on the trip itself took away from the "tour" experience, and created a nice "customized" program.  The experience in Sapa  was exceptional, and you provided a very comprehensive, yet unstressed, sapa trekking ! It was a nice  way to trek,. Oh food that the cook prepared is wonderfull,the guide Tuan,he is very nice, his english very good ,unbelievable. I try to keep in my  really good souvernirs I had in Sapa a long the trek,Nam thank you very much for your organization of trek. One day we will come back to say hello again.

Dir Sir

Before I travel your way again, I wanted to let you know how GREAT of a job Asia King Travel did for me. Everything went just as you said and your scheduling of my trip was flawless as were ALL the associates of your company that I had the pleasure to be acquainted with. Everyone was Very friendly and showed me every courteous possible and centered their job around me, which I found very refreshing. There are many companies that could use Asia King Travel expertise in providing good service. I need to say one more thing before saying goodbye. The food provided to me from Asia King Travel was the absolute best. Every meal was not only delicious in taste but the presentation of each plate was beautiful.
