Its complexity was beyond imagination containing meeting rooms, kitchens, wells, clinics, schools, depots, trenches and emergency exits all aimed for guerrilla warfare. The tunnels were deep and strong enough to withstand destructive bombings and self-contained enough to outlast prolonged sieges. Back to Ho Chi Minh City and spend time at leisure.

Don, United States

In February, my wife and I spent 12 days in Vietnam and Cambodia. 365 Travel made all the arrangements, and Daisy Trang was magnificent in her guidance and her attention to detail. She made things quite easy for us, in that we had absolutely no glitches anywhere along the line. Our guides and drivers were great, and we felt that they were truly interested in pointing out things that they felt would be of special interest to us as Americans. Our hotels and restaurants were all top shelf, and we highly recommend 367Travel to anyone considering a "tailor-made" experience. Read more

Gregory, United States

We spent a total of 19 days visiting Vietnam and Cambodia. I planned the trip with fairly short notice and rather individualized. Daisy was super accommodating with our requests even after our arrival. She showed great concern for our well-being when the weather turned cold as we were heading toward Sapa in the mountains. We purchased the ubiquitous "North Face" jackets for the experience of snow in Vietnam. Our trip had numerous guides and every form of travel. Never once were we stranded by our hosts. Our favorite parts of the trip were Sapa, Ha Long Bay (boat), Hoi An (beach), and Angkor Wat. In these and the other locations we always felt well taken care of in excellent hotels and on the arranged tours. The vacation using 365 Travel met our expectations and then some. I would highly recommend using 365 for your Southeast Asia travels. Read more
