Dear Mr. Dzung:

Thank you for copying me on your letter to Dr. Ajit Mehta.  My wife and I concur with Dr. Mehta (my brother-in-law) that our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia was a big success, fantastic and beyond our expectation. Sincere thanks to you for organizing our trip. 
Without your professionalism, care and proper planning of our itinerary, our visit might not have been successful.  Every one enjoyed the visits to various beautiful places in Vietnam and Cambodia.  We wished we had 4 to 5 extra days in Cambodia.  There is so much to see in this country.  Just for one-day stay in Siem Riep, the time was not enough.  However, whatever beautiful temples we saw in a day were breathtaking. We will try to come again to Vietnam and Cambodia---next time we will allow more time in Cambodia.
We certainly will recommend your company and your services to some of our friends in the USA who might be visiting Vietnam and Cambodia in future.
Most likely I might visit Saigon and Hanoi on business some time in April, 2005.  We met with a few companies in these two cities, which have expressed interest in our company’s products.
Here are some of the highlights of our trip:
*Our itinerary was perfectly planned.
*There were no problems at the Hanoi and Siem Riep airports for our visas. The procedures were simple and smooth.
*We found Vietnamese and Cambodian people very friendly, cheerful and helpful.
*The minibuses you had rented for us were comfortable, clean and the drivers were careful and excellent.
*All the four tour guides, Mr. Long in Hanoi, Mr. Tru in Danang/Dalat/Hoi, Mr. Luc in HCM City and Mr. Wong in Siem Riep were very good.  They were congenial and genuinely took interest in our trip.  They were also quite knowledgeable of the geography and history of places we visited.
*We really visited many interesting places and sites in Vietnam, which many tourists do not see all of them.  We all liked Hanoi and Saigon very much---particularly Saigon, which is an exciting city.
*Every one in our group did a lot of shopping. Embroidered paintings & tablecloths were gorgeous---every one purchased these items from the shops and factories we visited.  We did the big item shopping---purchased beautiful Rosewood 11-pieces Living Room furniture in Ho Chi Minh City. They will be shipped next month to Philadelphia via ocean-freight.              
*All the hotels were excellent and comfortable.  Thanks to you and me for selecting these hotels from the websites you sent to me.
*We certainly will recommend your company and your service to our friends in the USA, Canada and Europe when they want to travel to Vietnam/Cambodia
*When I visit your country in April, 2005, I will contact you again so that you may make travel arrangement, such as hotel booking, internal plane travel, visit to Cambodia, etc.
If and when you and your wife decide to visit the USA, please come visit us in Philadelphia, which is between New York and Washington DC on the east coast.  We wish you, your family and staff a Happy New Year.

Just wanted to send you an email telling you how VERY VERY MUCH we enjoyed our trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.  All the hotels were FABULOUS.  The Nikko in Hanoi was ABSOLUTELY even with the Mandarin Oriental (which we consider to be THE BEST!). 
 The Vinh Hung 4 Resort in HoiAn was marvelous.  We got there during their floor from the Typhoon - and after the 1st day the entire resort was flooded up to 5 feet.  The suite was great, but they then had to move us to "higher floors."  They wanted to evacuate us, but we insisted on staying there.  Only one other party of 3 and us stayed; and they brought food to our room; and, had boats take us everywhere--because we could not walk through the "river".  They picked us up in town and brought us back.  THE STAFF WAS INCREDIBLE!! -- AND without the flood, the resort is gorgeous. 
The  Cabana room at the Angkor Palace Resort & Spa is BY FAR (including Raffles--although it is bigger) one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever stayed at, anywhere in the world.  It is so new, people don't know it yet!  Even some of the taxis did not know where to take us; and it is not on the main street, it has it's own private road--you know, you visisted.  English at the hotel was sometimes a problem--but the services, the food; and the rooms were magnificent.
The New World Hotel in Saigon was amazing.  We had the suite (which by American standards was very inexpensive) and it was the best.  We had a living room, a dining area, a huge bedroom; AND  2 BATHROOMS.  The shower was --THE BEST WE HAVE EVER HAD ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD --AND WE HAVE REALLY TRAVELLED.  The buffet breakfast was enormous, with so many kinds of food, I don't think we tried everything, even after 6 days!  The concierge desk was the most knowledgeable--they got us laundry done (for $6.00) outside the hotel, picked up and delivered--the hotel laundry would have been nearly $40.00!  My glasses broke, and the concierge arranged for a shop to pick them up, fix them, and deliver them back in 1 day - new lenses and prescription!!  Their English was perfect, and they helped us with EVERYTHING -- from shopping to restaurants, spas--ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. 
In Hanoi, we went to the "BELLISSIMA SPA" - WHICH HAS MOVED TO:  458 Hang Bun, Hanoi (Tele:  04-716-4672.  This spa was as perfect, clean and gorgeous as any Spa in the states--and we did a full half day for $45.00 -- that's 4-1/2 hours!!! It was absoluting amazing!  Individual Massages, or facials, etc. are about $10-$15.  Just do not have a manicure/pedicure--it just isn't their speciality--but everything else, including all the products used was fabulous!!!
We also went to the Shisedo Spa in Saigon, and it was a little more expensive, but again fabulous - with all Shisedo products.  The New World also has a GREAT SPA.  Again, not quite as cheap--but your room is right there....
We, again, want to thank you for ALL YOUR HELP.  You were a marvelous agent, with great information.  Please pass these comments on to your co-workers; and if you send any Americans to these hotels, THEY WILL TRULY BE AMAZED. 
If and when we visit Vietnam again, we will certainly contact you.  You were just THE BEST!!   Thank you.

Dear Dzung:

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for arranging such a marvelous trip to Cambodia for me.  Your patience was remarkable but even more extraordinary were the staff you offered.   Both guides/translators were outstanding and provided the depth of information and detail that moves a vacation from the ordinary to the extraordinary.  Both guides had a very good command of English, a solid knowledge of the history and culture of the region, and -- most importantly, a sense of humor. 

I have three friends who are contemplating visiting Cambodia within the next year and will solidly recommend your firm to them.  My only hope is that I'll be able to return in the near future.

Thank you again for your help and please pass along my thanks to the young men I worked with.

L'ensemble de mon voyage c'est très bien déroulé.
L’organisation entre le temps passé avec le guide et les temps libres me
convenait parfaitement.

mon accompagnés dans le nord, Ils sont très compétents et sympathiques,
grâce à eux je garder un excellent souvenir de ce voyage.

Les 3 autres guides étaient professionnels et compétents.

Ce voyage est l'un des plus agréable que j'ai fait.

Dear Dzung,

We arrived home last Sunday, uneventfully, and have now had time to reflect on our trip. .
We found Vietnam a fascinating country, we are pleased that we took just a little longer than most tourists in each of our three destinations.   
I was most impressed by how industrious  the Vietnamese people are. Tourism is certainly taking off, we have noticed that more Australians are considering Vietnam as  destination in Asia.
Thankyou Dzung wholeheartedly for firstly your good advice in planning our holiday, then the seamless way in which you organised our tour, everything went like clockwork, the accommodation was excellent and the drivers and guides you selected were very good at their jobs.
It was an extra bonus to meet you personally [photo attached] and chat about your interests and the background of your business. Di especially enjoyed discussing the weaving of the Hilltribe  people with you.
We naturally are more than happy to recommend " Discovery Indochina"  to our friends and anybody considering travel to Vietnam.

Thank you  again for a most memorable holiday.

Kind regards
Geoff and Di

hejj! : )
...already back to work and busy again, just want to let you know that our trip to  Nha Trang was great, enjoyed every minute of it, food, people, artists...we didn't  want to leave, and, our next trip will definitely be back to Vietnam.
Best regards,

Dear Dzung,

Thank you so much for organising our holiday in Vietnam. We will certainly be back and will contact you. We have already given your name to a couple we met in the Pimalai and to an Australian family.

By the way, the Pimalai was really lovely. The Pavilion rooms were worth paying extra and the service at the hotel was exemplary It was a pity that we were there at the most expensive time of the year but as we were really in need of a rest, we understood we would have to pay for it. The manager himself arranged for his own car to pick us up in Bangkok and take us to the best hospital (where he arranged appointments with the top specialists) while we were in transit on our way back to London (my son had an ear
infection and Michael had a tooth problem).

In all we had 10 flights during our trip and not a single delay. Your management of our time was perfect. I wish I had spent more time at the beach in Hoian and next time would like to try to spend time in Sapa and by the sea in Vietnam. In fact, we all preferred Vietnam to Thailand as Thailand has 'industrialised' tourism to such a degree that you could be anywhere in the world whereas Vietnam retains its own identity.

Thank you for all your hard work, and for responding even in the middle of the night. You really do deserve to do well and I hope that your company goes from strength to strength.

With kindest regards,

Linda Falter

Mr Dzung,

Thank you very much for arranging our trip to Sapa. The train was luxurious and comfortable. The hotel was beautiful and restful.
Sapa and outlying villages were magical. And, our drive back to Hanoi smooth. We would especially like to commend Mr Ton.
He is an excellent driver, guide and a perfect gentleman.  Thank you.

It has been a great pleasure getting to know your wonderful country.
We will come again!

I will be sure to pass your company details to all our friends
and family. Thank you for the excellent efficient service.

Dear Dzung,

Since 2 days now we´re back in Germany and we´re really sad because we enjoyed our trip so much! We really thank you for the brilliant organization - everything was just great and well organized!
We would recommend you to everybody who´s thinking about a trip to Vietnam!

Now more detailed:
1. Welcome at Hanoi Airport was fine. Nice girl to pick us up.
2. Hotel "Golden Key" for the stay in hanoi was fine and in a good position, just for sleeping it´s OK. Price/Value good.
3. Trip in Halong Bay on the boot was great!
4. Victoria Express to Sapa - very interesting trip! Welcome was great! Meeting with the guide there (also Nam?)was very nice. He´s a very nice guy with lots of knowledge about the area. It was a very nice exprerience to visit with him sapa area.
5. Driver from Hue to Danang was very friendly
6. Our guide for Mekong Delta (Son?) couldn´t be better! The 2 days in this place have been really exciting and he took us  to places I´m sure lots of tourists wouldn´t see them. He was more than friendly and we would deeply recommend him to everybody! Nothing he could do better! Even on our drive to the airport to go back to Germany he called us again to ask   if the driver arrived in time and if everything is fine. Really great!
So, Many thanks to you again, everything was more than fine and maybe we will see each other again.

Have a good time,
All the best, Andrea – Germany

Hi Dzung!

My wife and I want to thank you for the superb trip/tour (Mar.8-11) we recently enjoyed with Discovery Indochina. The visit to Lao Cai/Sapa was nothing less than incredible. We loved it.

Please convey our heartfelt thanks to Manh, Nguyen Van, who was our guide. He did a masterful job and it was a pleasure meeting and travelling with him.

Without question you have a beautiful country.

Dear Dzung,

Just to let you know we arrived safely back home and want to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to your country.  It is a wonderful place and I hope to return soon.  I was especially impressed with the guide in Ho Chi Minh who took us on the Delta tour overnight.  He was a lovely young man and very helpful.  His name was Son. So I think its good to let you know these things.
The guide in Middle Vietnam also was very knowledgeable as well.     He certainly knew his history.  All in all we had a wonderful time .  I will certainly recommend you and your country to any of my friends travelling. I can recommend the Hoi An Hotel very highly as well as the  Cooking School there in Hoian.  That was a highlight. The train journey from Hanoi to Hue was great but if you book for people of my age perhaps you should order the lower bunks. Luckily some young tourists changed with us so we were able to have the two lower berths. We also had bought silk sleeping bags for the train and I think that was worthwhile so you might like to suggest that to future clients if they are older.  people.
Anyhow just thought I would let you know my thoughts on the trip as it could be helpful for you in the future.  I also am considering coming to teach English next year  

Best Regards
Carole Blackman
