    How difficult is the cycling in Vietnam?

    It varies day to day, but on average you will do 40km - 60km (sounds like a lot but you'll get used to it quite quickly!). The longest day we did was about 95km, and the shortest just 20km. It can be quite warm so drinking plenty of water is essential. There are a few days with some steep hills but the support bus is always nearby for anyone who wants to take a break and avail of the air-con. A lot of the roads are straight, flat and pretty quiet, passing through countryside filled with small towns and villages - expect lots of waving and "Hello hello!".

    Any shopping tips for Vietnam?

    There are some great local crafts you can buy throughout the trip, all hand made and very reasonable. For anyone interested in getting some clothes made, Hoi An is the place to do it. The local tailors can usually turn garments around in a a day or so, and you can pick up some bespoke items for a fraction of what they would cost at home. Just leave some room in your luggage!

    What's the standard of accommodation like in SE Asia?

    The hotels are of a very good standard, roughly comparable to a 2/3 star standard with air conditioning, spacious rooms and centrally located. Because certain areas have only opened up to tourism relatively recently, in the past 15 years or so, most of the hotels are newly built but in a traditional style. More remote areas can also have slightly more basic facilitiers, but these are usually more than compensated for by the location.

    How much do you spend on food in SE Asia?

    On average, a lunch should cost no more than £3 and dinner up to £10 including drinks. The standard and quality of the restaurants is very good while still retaining a traditional ambience. In the more remote locations, it's amazing how the local people can prepare such delicious meals!

    Can I get a Vietnamese visa on arrival?

    No, it must be gotten in advance. We suggest applying for the visa at least six weeks before departure. It is normally valid for 30 days and will ask for your entry and exit days. You can add the exact dates or, because you can use the whole 30 days, you can put the start date down as a week before you're due to get there and extend it for 30 days beyond that. This way you are covered in case there is any changes to your plans. Either way is fine. Brendan Phelan - Customer Operations

    What is Vietnamese food like?

    Like a lot of South East Asia, Vietnam meals consist mainly of rice, vegetables and frilled or stir fried meat. The staple dish is Pho, which is a noodle broth with veg and meat. You can buy it off many small roadside stalls very cheaply, as well as the more established restuarants you will be visiting during the trip. Due to the French colonial influence, another item you shouldn't miss is the fresh baguettes, filled with cheese, pate or meat, again available from small stalls in most towns.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
