So far my Internet research has revealed lots of companies that do local hires but I haven't really seen anything tailored to what I'm looking to do. Does anyone have any input or recommendations? I just stumbled across the web site of Flamingo Travel
which has offices in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Anybody have any experience with them?
I have seen conflicting information on whether an international driver's license is valid in Vietnam. Anyone know for sure? I have read that you are only eligible to get a Vietnamese driver's license if you have a > 3 month visa.
My goal for this trip is to eat my way through the entirety of Vietnam.
I just begin to write my report, but still there are some informations for you. I rented my bike from Flamingo Travel: helpfull and professional.
