Can I stay in Vietnam for more than 3 months?
Yes that is possible.

A tourist visa for Vietnam is normally valid for a period of 3 months. After this period you must leave the country. The good news is that you can return to Vietnam on the same day with a new visa. This procedure can be repeated as many times as you wish.

We can assist you in arranging your “border run” to a nearby country. A popular destination is often Chiang Mai in Thailand. We take you to the airport and you choose the cheapest flight to this destination. You can choose to stay there for a few days, but you can also fly back on the same day. The cost of a return ticket is usually around 40 euros.

Another option is to do the “border run” by car. This is usually cheaper than a plane ticket and the travel time is shorter. We can arrange a driver for you to take you to the border with Laos. You can return on the same day.

This is a well-known and legal way to extend your visa. Many people use this method to renew their visa every 3 months.

For more information you can also visit the following website: vietnamvisavoa.com

We can provide you with all the necessary support and guidance to ensure your visa extension runs smoothly.

What if I unexpectedly want/need to go home earlier?
If you want or need to go home earlier, you do not have to worry about the remaining months of your booking if you have reserved several months. You are not obliged to pay for the remaining months if you decide to leave early.

We understand that there may be situations that may affect your travel plans, and we want to be flexible to accommodate you. Your comfort and satisfaction are important to us and we want to ensure that your stay with us is as hassle-free and worry-free as possible.

What if I don't like my room?
It is our sincere wish that you have a wonderful time during your stay as we look forward to seeing you again next year. Moreover, we hope that you will recommend us to your friends, family and acquaintances.

To achieve this, we will do our utmost to meet your wishes. This includes arranging another room for you, should you be dissatisfied with the room allocated.

Your satisfaction is our priority and we will do everything within our means to ensure that your stay with us is optimal.

Do I need vaccinations for Vietnam?
There are no mandatory vaccinations for Vietnam. However, there are recommended vaccinations depending on your health situation and other factors. For more detailed information about the recommended vaccinations, please visit the websites of:

Thuisvaccinatie.nl
ggdreisvaccinaties.nl

It is advisable to contact an approved vaccination institution, such as the websites mentioned, to receive specific vaccination advice tailored to your personal health situation and travel plans. They can provide you with the most current and relevant information about vaccinations for your trip to Vietnam.

What if I need medication?
It is wise to take sufficient medication with you if you are dependent on specific medication.

If it is not possible to take sufficient medication with you, it is often possible to obtain the necessary medication in Vietnam with an (English) prescription from your doctor.

In some cases you can also have a prescription written by an English-speaking Vietnamese doctor. This can be useful if you need new medication on site or additional prescriptions.

However, always ensure that you contact your GP or a medical professional before traveling for advice and guidance regarding your specific medication needs during your stay in Vietnam.

Can I buy a house in Vietnam?
It is possible for foreigners to buy a house or apartment in Vietnam, subject to certain conditions and restrictions set by the Vietnamese government.

Under current legislation, foreigners can only acquire ownership in certain projects that meet the criteria for international home ownership. This can be done, among other things, through a long-term lease contract, where you have the right to use the property and enjoy all the rights as an owner during the contract period.

However, it is advisable to seek professional advice from a lawyer or real estate specialist who is familiar with local regulations and procedures to guide you through the purchasing process. This way you can be sure that you meet all the requirements and your rights and interests are protected when purchasing a house or apartment in Vietnam.

What about my travel insurance?
It is wise to take out travel insurance before you travel. Travel insurance can be taken out for just a few euros per month.

You can easily compare different travel insurance policies on the Independer website. This way you can choose the option that best suits your travel needs and budget.

For more information and to compare travel insurance policies, please visit the following website: independer.nl

Having appropriate travel insurance provides peace of mind and protection during your trip. Make sure you are well informed and have the right coverage before you go.

What kind of visa or residence permit do I need for Vietnam?
For Vietnam you need a tourist visa, which can easily be applied for online. We can help you arrange this if necessary.

Visa application in Dutch:
[visumbuitenland.nl](https://visumbuitenland.nl/vietnam)

Via the website of the Vietnamese Immigration Service:
[evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn](https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/en_US/web/guest/trang-chu-ttdt)

You can also apply for the visa via:
[vietnamvisa.govt.vn](https://vietnamvisa.govt.vn/)

A single-entry visa is usually sufficient, unless you want to travel in and out of the country multiple times during the 3-month validity period.

Please ensure that you choose a visa that corresponds to the desired duration of stay with us.

If you want to spend the winter for more than 3 months, you must leave the country briefly after 3 months, for example by flying back and forth to Thailand. This way you can leave the country and re-enter with a new visa. We can also organize a trip to Laos for you, where you will return the same day with a new visa.

Make sure you apply for your visa in time and match its validity to your plans of stay. If you have any questions or need help with the visa application, we are ready to assist you.

Where is the best place to book a ticket?
There are several websites where you can find the best deals on airline tickets. These websites compare prices between multiple airlines, giving you an overview of the most affordable options.

The price for a return ticket to Vietnam usually varies between EUR 650 and EUR 950, depending on the season and availability.

On this page you can find cheap airline tickets

Please also read the article about finding cheap airline tickets.

Can I volunteer in Vietnam?
Yes, it is certainly possible to do volunteer work in Vietnam. It is also a very rewarding experience. For example, you can help at a school with English lessons. You can play simple games under the guidance of the teacher. The children love having a real 'foreigner' in the classroom and practicing English words together. It is mainly about listening and speaking in English in a playful manner. Topics such as “What is your favorite color?” and “Introducing yourself” are typical topics discussed. No extensive knowledge of the English language is required. It is mainly about interaction and sharing cultural experiences with the children.
When is the rainy season?
Absolutely, no worries! If you plan to spend the winter with us in the north of Vietnam, you can generally count on cooler and drier weather than in other parts of the country. Although there may be occasional rain in winter, these are usually shorter showers and the total amount of precipitation is much less than in southern Vietnam. Heavy and prolonged rain showers, such as those that occur during the rainy season in the south, are very rare in the north during this period.

The north of Vietnam, with its four-season climate, is ideal for wintering, with temperatures that are pleasant and generally do not fall below 15 degrees. It is perfect for those who want to escape the harsh winters elsewhere, without the intense heat and high humidity that characterize some other tropical destinations.

So pack your suitcase, don't worry about the weather and look forward to enjoying your time in the beautiful north of Vietnam!

Why is a hotel cheaper on booking.com?
We are sometimes asked why rooms on Booking.com seem cheaper at first glance. It is important to realize that the rates you see there often refer to the most basic rooms, sometimes without extras such as breakfast or cleaning. Moreover, due to their market position, Booking.com can sometimes stunt with prices that are even below the hotel owner's standard rates.

With us you not only get a comfortable room, but also additional services such as cleaning, washing of clothes and a transfer to and from the airport in Hanoi. When you take all these factors into account, you will find that our offers are competitive and often even more affordable, with the benefit of a more complete and worry-free experience. An introductory tour in the area is also included in the price, during which you visit the most popular attractions and in which we show you around the area.

We strive to be transparent and fair in our rates and what you get in return. Do you have questions? We are always ready to answer them!

Why are you not affiliated with a guarantee fund or travel guarantee fund?
We are essentially not a traditional travel organization. Our main service is aimed at guiding people who want to stay in Vietnam for a longer period of time. As a result, we fall outside the standard criteria of travel guarantee funds.

We understand the importance of security and trust. That is why we do everything we can to be open and transparent in our communication and services. If you have any questions about this or would like more information, we will of course be happy to help you!

Are there beaches close to the accommodations you offer in Ninh Binh?
Although Ninh Binh is best known for its impressive landscapes and natural beauty inland, the nearest beach is approximately 55 kilometers away. This makes it possible to organize a day trip to the beach during your stay with us. So a day out at the beach is certainly a viable option for those who want to combine the tranquility of nature with some time on the coast.
What do the rooms of the accommodations you offer look like?

We offer a diverse range of accommodation types, suitable for different budgets. However, all rooms are guaranteed to be clean, tidy and equipped with modern comforts such as air conditioning and good internet connection. On our website you will find a comprehensive overview of our accommodations, including detailed photos and descriptions of each option. This will help you get a good idea of the different options and facilities available. Visit this link for more information: https://overwintereninvietnam.nl/accommodaties/.

Slightly skeptical

March 29, 2024

Everything was promised on the website, so we were slightly skeptical. Yes, yes, it will.

But it really was like this:

We were met at the airport by a very friendly man who told us all kinds of things during the ride and gave good tips, such as the taxi app and a SIM card for the country. This later turned out to contribute enormously to the pleasure of traveling there.

We also asked about our preference for an extensive introduction to the ins and outs of Ninh Binh and the surrounding area or an occasional visit to a single attraction and then visiting it immediately. We chose the latter. That turned out to be a good choice.

We also received a hotel upgrade due to TET (the Chinese New Year's Eve). We have not regretted that either. The new hotel turned out to be better in terms of location and was also less affected by the party.

We also indicated that we wanted to rent bicycles, and Marcel (the friendly man, who also turned out to have a great sense of humor) immediately offered his mountain bike for free.

And this was only the first few hours.

For 4 weeks we saw him regularly or he texted that he was going somewhere tomorrow and asked if we wanted to come along. We went out with his family and had dinner and excursions. We ate at his house, regularly received roasted peanuts from his wife, etc. Partly because of this we saw parts of the country and the population that we probably would not have seen otherwise.

And as for the promise of help 24/7. Of course we didn't abuse it, but you could ask him anything and he did his best to solve it.

In short: a nice guy and wintering in Vietnam is highly recommended.

Oasis of Peace and Hospitality

March 14, 2024

An Phu Homestay is truly a hidden gem in beautiful Ninh Binh. From the moment I arrived I was warmly welcomed by the friendly host and hostess. The accommodation itself is charming and cozy, surrounded by lush greenery and soothing sounds of nature. My bungalow was comfortable and spotless, with its own bathroom with all necessities.

What really sets this homestay apart is the personal touch and attention to detail. The hosts did everything they could to make my stay memorable, from arranging local excursions to serving delicious home-cooked meals. I really felt at home, away from home.

I highly recommend An Phu Homestay to anyone looking for an authentic and welcoming experience in Vietnam. I definitely plan to return and enjoy this beautiful place even more!”

I can highly recommend spending the winter in Ninh Binh

March 4, 2024

I am Jack and I am 69 years young and I wintered in Ninh Binh from January 17 to February 25. Marcel picked me up with a big smile. It was a relaxing start to my holiday in Vietnam. Marcel arranged a SIM card for me, arranged the rental of a mountain bike and arranged appointments the foot salon and massage parlour. He also gave tips for making trips in the area. You could always reach Marcel for advice.

My hotel was on the outskirts of the city and was 3.5 kilometers from the old city. You can get there in no time by taxi. The taxi is very cheap. Marcel shows you the most important places with his car, which you can visit again afterwards by bike or taxi with more time. The nature and culture are beautiful and the people are very friendly.

The weather in Ninh Binh was very changeable. The temperatures ranged from 15 to 30 degrees. Pleasant days alternated with cold and rainy days. Please note that the weather is not always nice and dry.

A translation app and Grab app for the taxi are very useful on your mobile phone. I can highly recommend wintering in Ninh Binh for people who are flexible and have experience traveling outside Europe. There is plenty to see and do with Marcel in the background if there are any questions.

Jack

Grateful for this unique experience

March 1, 2024

As an avid traveler, my stay in Ninh Binh, organized by Overwintering in Vietnam, was one of the most memorable experiences. My name is Tom, and during my stay in January and February I experienced the beauty and culture of Vietnam in a very personal and intimate way.

The hospitality of the team and the llocal population was heart-warming. I had the pleasure of being guided by Luong, who was not only my guide but also became a good friend. He showed me the hidden treasures of Ninh Binh, from beautiful temples to breathtaking nature reserves.

Luong also took me on a local boat tour, where I had the chance to experience the majestic rivers and karst mountains. In addition, he introduced me to local artisans, where I learned more about traditional Vietnamese arts.

This trip has enriched my view of Vietnam and its culture, and I am extremely grateful to Wintering in Vietnam for this unique experience. I look forward to returning and having more adventures!

Tom

A dream that came true

February 25, 2024

My name is Linda, and I had the pleasure of staying in Ninh Binh this winter. From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and at ease, thanks to the warm welcome from the Wintering in Vietnam team. They not only arranged my transportation but also ensured a comfortable stay and countless local experiences.

The staff, especially Huyen, were incredibly helpful, providing me with valuable tips on local markets, restaurants and hidden gems in the area. I enjoyed cycling through the breathtaking scenery, sampling the local cuisine and participating in traditional Vietnamese festivals.

The highlight of my stay was the personal cooking class organized by the team where I learned how to prepare the famous Pho. My stay in Ninh Binh, organized by Overwintering in Vietnam, was truly a dream come true, and I would recommend this experience to anyone.
