I have always liked independent travel. Finding good deals for flights and hotels, figuring out how to get from one place to another, discovering hidden treasures in a city have always made me smile. But, once in a while, whether I’m planning an anniversary escape or just don’t feel like putting that much effort into planning, I am very happy to be able to book a vacation package. And if you look for a beach vacation, a golfing escape or even an adventure holiday, Vietnam is surely the place for you.
What are Vietnam Vacation Packages?
A vacation package bundles, in an easy-to-book form, various travel items. Usually, vacation packages comprise the flight , the hotel and the transfer to/from the airport. In many cases, meals are also added to the package, while an all inclusive package will also comprise the car rental and tours (or discounts for those).
What are the benefits of choosing a vacation package?
The main benefit, especially when traveling to places where scamming is a problem for the traveler, is peace of mind. While you cannot get ripped off when booking a flight on your own, when it comes to finding a hotel and getting there, you might have some problems dodging scam artists. But if you’ve booked a vacation package everything is taken care and you will only focus on relaxing and having a good time.
Vacation packages save both time and money. Think about the time you would lose debating which hotel to choose and how to get from the airport to the hotel. Plus the research done to figure out how safe the area is. No headaches if you book a package! Typically, you’ll get discounts when you book a vacation package. They can be free nights at the hotel or free meals. Sometimes discounts for car rental or tours are offered.
Who are Vietnam vacation packages right for?
Vacation packages are a good choice if you visit a country for the first time, especially if you are in for a cultural shock (as it happens when you live in Europe or North America and visit Asia). They are also an excellent choice for those who don’t want to bother with planning everything. When you have a limited time available, a vacation package will offer the most you can get for that time, especially if you add some tours to the mix.
On the other hand, if you love to navigate cities and love to do the research on your own, you are better off not choosing a vacation package.
