Weather

 

Vietnam

Vietnam is large enough to have several distinct climate zones. The North has four distinct seasons, with a comparatively chilly winter (temperatures can dip below 15°C/59°F in Hanoi), a hot and wet summer and pleasant spring (March-April) and autumn (October-December) seasons. Normally summers are hot and dry.

 

The South has three somewhat distinct seasons: hot and dry from March to May/June; rainy from June/July to November; and cool and dry from December to February. April is the hottest month, with mid-day temperatures of 33°C (91°F). December to February is the most pleasant time to visit, with cool evenings down to around 20° (68°F).

 

Cambodia

Cambodia's climate is dominated by monsoons, which are known as tropical wet and dry because of the distinctly marked seasonal differences. Temperatures range from 21 to 35 °C (69.8 to 95.0 °F) and experiences tropical monsoons. The northeast monsoon ushers in the dry season, which lasts from November to April. The country experiences the heaviest precipitation from September to October with the driest period occurring from January to February.

Cambodia has two distinct seasons. The rainy season, which runs from May to October, and the dry season lasts from November to April. Temperatures remain relatively warm throughout the year.

 

Baggage

 

Please check you baggage restrictions with your airline.

 

Passengers’ will have to carry their luggage to and from the coach to the hotel room. You can also carry one piece of small hand luggage, which can fit under their seat. It is advisable for one passenger to carry a small and bag or backpack between their group in which they can carry essentials like water, tissues, cameras etc.

 

 

Clothing & Accessories

 

During summer months, it is advisable to wear light garments and perhaps keep a light jacket or sweater handy. It is advisable to carry a light waterproof jacket or umbrella, as well as a hat or cap.

 

Passengers should also carry suitable footwear as per the itinerary of the tour e.g. comfortable trainers for a tour.

 

Passengers should also carry travel adapters so they can charge their electronic items in their hotel room (as the sockets in Vietnam vary from those in the UK).

 

Passengers may also want to carry a small travel iron, hair dryer, kettle etc., as many hotel rooms will not have these facilities.

Your mobile phone may be able to receive calls whilst on holiday, you can check with your network operator to switch on the roaming feature of your mobile, there is usually an additional charge to receive incoming calls whilst aboard.

Please ensure you carry all medication you will need on tour as well as names and doses of medications you are taking or copies of prescriptions.

 

Currency

 

Vietnam

The national currency is the dong, which is difficult to find or exchange outside Vietnam; change money on arrival and try to get rid of any leftovers before leaving the country.

 

According to Vietnamese laws, foreign currency can be easily changed into dong but not vice versa. Exchanging dong is quite a complicated procedure requiring some time and patience. In order to change dong into another currency one should show one's ticket as a confirmation of leaving Vietnam and one's ID.

 

Prices are widely advertised in US dollars, namely because of the unstable currency valuation of the dong, but unlike neighbouring Cambodia, for instance, payment is often expected in dong only.

 

Most visitors opt to keep the bulk of their cash in US dollars and exchange or withdraw dong as needed. For credit card payments, there is usually a 3% surcharge, so cash may be advantageous for large transactions.

 

Traveller cheques of well-known companies are widely accepted, but usually a small fee is charged. ATMs are becoming more and more common and can be found in bigger cities and every tourist destination. Usually ATMs disclose the commission before the transaction.

 

Cambodia

The Cambodian riel (KHR) and US dollar (USD) are interchangeable currencies in Cambodia. It is advisable to carry local currency with you. Torn or old currency notes - both dollars and riel - may be difficult to use. If someone removes the bill from your sight, returns and claims they "can't make change," check your bill carefully to make sure it's the same note.

 

It's advisable to spend or donate all of your riel before leaving Cambodia as riel only have value outside Cambodia as souvenirs. No one will exchange them.

Cambodian ATMs are generally compatible with Maestro, Cirrus, Plus, and VISA cards. Cash advances on credit cards may also be possible. Foreigners are often surprised to discover that most ATMs only dispense US dollars in varying denominations from USD10 to USD100 - though if you're determined, you might be able to find some that are loaded with both currencies.

 

ATMs generally charge a fee of around USD$5 per withdrawal. As of December 2014, there aren't any known fee-free ATMs left in Phnom Penh.

VISA and JCB are the most widely accepted credit cards; MasterCard and American Express cards are slowly becoming more widely accepted. Note that many places, especially budget restaurants and accommodation, do not accept credit cards.

 

Traveller's cheques, like credit cards, are accepted in major business establishments, such as large hotels, some restaurants, travel agencies and some souvenir shops; American Express (in USD) are the most widely accepted.

 

Children & Young Infants

 

Car seats are not provided on coaches but passengers should carry car seats with travelling infants for comfort and safety.

 

It is the passengers’ responsibility to make sure of necessary arrangements for any children in their group. Milk and baby food cannot be provided by the hotel or restaurants and passengers are advised to carry ready to drink milk whilst on tour. Dry food is allowed on the so please feel free to bring snacks for children.

 

Please also note that not all hotels provide a kettle so if hot water is required for warming milk etc in the hotel then it is advisable to carry a bottle warmer / kettle as well as a thermos flask.

 

Pushchairs can be kept in the baggage lockers of the coach, although size restrictions may apply. We recommend that you consider using a pushchair for younger children.

 

Wheelchairs

 

We will accept light weight manual wheelchairs for travel, subject to them being capable of being stowed in the luggage hold of the coach.  It is also essential that a family member is also on the tour to push their wheelchair. Star Tour’s will also request hotels for suitably equipped rooms; however, this is only on a request basis and cannot be guaranteed.

 

Tour Managers

 

Local guides accompany our tours throughout the itinerary, on rare occasions the Tour rep may not meet passengers at their dedicated pick up point but at a later stage, the driver will be there to take care of any of the passengers’ needs.

 

Your tour manager will accompany you to the sights, and be there to answer any questions you may have, and provide advice and assistance. If you have, any concerns please feel free to ask your tour rep whilst on tour. The tour manager and Tour guides will conduct the tours in English.

All hotels have a minimum, 5* star category (unless opting for 3/4 Star). Facilities will include en-suite bathroom, a TV and telephone. Some also include bars, restaurants and 24-hour reception. If you use services such as the phone or mini bar, or pay TV whilst in your room, you will have to pay the hotel directly when you check out; these services are not included in your tour cost.

 

Rooming Configuration

 

Most of the hotels Star Tours use can only accommodate a maximum of three people in each room however if you are a family of four, i.e. two adults and two children, then your first child will be given an extra bed but the second child will be required to share the bed as no extra bed can be provided. The fourth bed is on request and is not guaranteed.
