4*+ Pandanus Resort

Unlike many of the smaller resorts that line the beaches on Phan Thiet, the Pandanus Resort is large enough to give guests that unmistakable feeling of freedom and independence. The buildings and landscape are designed to compliment, not compete with the natural surroundings. Adjacent to the beach is a huge free-form pool surrounding an island covered with palm trees.

FLIGHT TIMES: 12.35 hours direct from London Heathrow to Saigon (Vietnam Airlines are only airline to operate direct flight on particular days of week). Other airlines fly indirect every day of the week.

 

TIME DIFFERENCE: +6 hours in summer time / +7 hours in winter time (BST).

 

CURRENCY: Vietnamese dong £1 = approx. 31,000 VND 

 

MONEY: Almost all goods and services are calculated and paid for in US dollars. Credit cards are accepted only at major hotels, restaurants owned by foreigners and souvenir shops. Travellers cheques and currencies other than US Dollars are accepted only by major banks. We recommend changing a small amount into local currency on arrival, for drinks and gifts etc.

 

VISA: No visa is required for UK passport holders if stay is 15 days or less in Vietnam. 

 

LANGUAGE: The official language spoken in Vietnam is Vietnamese. 

 

BEST TIMES TO VISIT: Generally Spring and Autumn months – February to April and August to October. The temperatures are more moderate and rainfall is lighter. 

 

FOOD & DRINK: Light, subtle in flavour and astonishing in their variety, Vietnamese dishes are boiled or steamed rather than stir-fried, and a huge emphasis is placed on herbs and seasoning. In the south, Indian and Thai influences add curries and spices to the menu, while other regions have evolved their own array of specialities.

Buddhism introduced a vegetarian tradition to Vietnam, while much later the French brought with them bread, dairy products, pastries and the whole café culture. The quality and variety of food is generally better in the main towns than off the beaten track, where restaurants of any sort are few and far between.

 

SOCIAL ETIQUETTE: People throughout Indochina are very kind and easy going. People are very relaxed with foreigners and their different habits. 

Showing anger is seen as a weakness.

Respect and care should be shown when visiting temples and shoes should always be removed before entering.

 

HEALTH ADVICE: Although no vaccinations are officially required for entry to Indochina, they are highly encouraged. Visitors are advised to check with their GP or travel immunisation clinic regarding protection against malaria, typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis A & B. Any essential medications should be brought with you as there is no guarantee they will be available in the areas you will be visiting.

If travelling in Summer months, please bring sunscreen, mosquito repellent etc.

It is not safe to drink tap water in Vietnam – please drink boiled water or bottled water only.
