Description

The Socialist Republic of Vietnam has been visited by famous international climbers for decades however has never seen the development like Thailand. This is likely due to it's lesser quality of weather and more difficulties of travel. If looking to develop new routes be sure to check locally if it is allowed. In some cases you may have to get government approval to bolt.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO DEEP WATER SOLO CHECK THE TIDE INFORMATION OR YOU MAY GO WHEN YOU CAN'T DWS!
Haiphong can provide tide tables. Look for tides over 3 meters in the middle of the afternoon.

A few Travel notes:
For US: Visa is required. Visa on arrival maybe an option but I am unfamiliar. The process for a visa before you leave the States is fairly straight forward costing $70 and should be processed in about a week.

Passports at Hotels:
Most Hotels will want to hold your passports while you are staying with them this is because the manager has to check in with the local police the guests there.

Getting There

Tiger Air, Airasia, and Jetstar all offer cheap tickets to fly into Vietnam cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
