The Legend of Halong Bay | Super Value Tours | Blog


Super Value Tours | Blog

The legend states that in ancient times, the Vietnamese people had to defend themselves against fierce invaders from the North. The Jade Emperor saw the peril of the Vietnamese people and sent a Mother Dragon and her children to defend the country. The mighty dragons swooped down from the heavens and landed in the sea. They defeated the invaders by breathing fire and throwing enormous jade and emerald boulders into the sea, forming an indestructible protective wall. The invaders were unable to maneuver their ships away from the wall, and so were dashed against it and destroyed. Thanks to the dragons, peace and tranquility were restored to Vietnam. The dragons chose to transform into humans and remain in the mortal world in order to help build the growing country. To show their appreciation, the Vietnamese people named the bay "Ha Long Bay" in honor of the dragons. After thousands of years, the solid emerald wall became the multitude of verdant green islets that dot the

Travel to Vietnam, How to get the Most from Your Vietnam Tours

Travel to Vietnam, How to get the Most from Your Vietnam Tours


Vietnam Tours, Travel to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanamar

If you’re thinking about cutting corners here and there before you embark on your Vietnam Tour Package, you may want to reconsider. One of the most sublime countries in Southeast Asia awaits you and if this is your first visit to Vietnam, you should ensure all measures are taken to cover every angle of your trip. Vietnam Tours from Australia are very popular choices for travellers looking to explore parts of Southeast Asia and although this country is not as famous as Thailand or Malaysia for backpackers, a Vietnam tour package will never disappoint you. With more than 3000 km of stunning coastline, you can always be sure of finding a spot that isn’t dominated by commercialism, leaving you with a tranquil droplet of paradise to relax and unwind. If your Vietnam tour package occurs between November and March, you can expect prices to be slightly higher as this is the peak of the tourist season. Cruises will be slightly more expensive and this is especially the case over the Christmas and New Year period. If you wish to enjoy a Vietnam tour package during a quitter time of year, the best time to visit would be between March and May, before the monsoon season takes effect. Vietnam holiday packages can be tailored as you see fit and will allow you to embrace everything that is most beautiful about this enchanting nation. Always be sure to make sure you passport has at least six months validity left from the moment you arrive here and if you are travelling on Vietnam tours from Australia, you will need to arrange a visa on arrival. See more:  Vietnam Tours Packages, Honeymoon Tours, Vietnam Family Tours  While here on a Vietnam tour package, you may find yourself in several different areas of the country, therefore you should be prepared for anything in regards to the weather. This country dwells in numerous different climatic zones, therefore you could be graced with almost any weather condition throughout your stay. While the south basks in a tropical climate all year round with temperatures rarely dropping below 25 degrees, the mountainous far north including hillside communities like Sapa and Buon Me Thuot experiences a completely different and much cooler climate. Before setting off on your Vietnam tour package, you should consider being vaccinated for diseases like typhoid, malaria and hepatitis and be sure to take out travel insurance as medical fees can be costly in the event of a serious accident.The currency here is known as the ‘dong’ or abbreviated to VND and if this is your first Vietnam tour package, you should familiarise yourself with the denominations as 100,000 can easily be mistaken for 10,000 VND notes, meaning that potentially you could involuntarily rip yourself off. Generally, you will only be able to withdraw between 2 and 5 million VND per transaction at ATMs. Vietnam lies in the GMT+7 time zone and upon arrival, you should try to familiarise yourself with the location of your embassy, which will normally be open between the hours of 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. The official language in this country is of course Vietnamese and during your Vietnam package tour, you will encounter several dialects of this language. The fact that Vietnamese is based around six different tones may make communication quite complicated, therefore it is wise to carry a phrasebook and upon confusion, simply point to what you’re trying to say. You can reasonably sure of your safety during your Vietnam package tour as this is one of the friendliest countries in Southeast Asia, even though it is still a developing nation. Violent attacks are incredibly rare and even theft is uncommon. Traffic in cities such as Saigon and Hanoi is incredibly chaotic, so be careful when crossing the road. Be vigilant and move at a slow and steady pace. As with any other country you are unfamiliar with, when enjoying Vietnam holiday packages, take all the necessary precautions to ensure the security of your belongings, such as using the hotel deposit boxes an carrying only what is essential.

Visiting the Taj Mahal with Kids

by Sally @ our3kidsvtheworld

When we were planning on visiting the Taj Mahal with kids, I have to admit I was a little anxious about taking the kids to India.

They don’t really paint a pretty picture or encourage you to take your kids there.  This post will provide useful facts about India for kids, particularly focusing on the Taj Mahal.
