Ha Long Bay Vietnam.
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. mobilegeographics.com:81/calen...
Look for tides over 3 meters in the middle of the afternoon.
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.
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.
Tiger Air, Airasia, and Jetstar all offer cheap tickets to fly into Vietnam cities such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Does anyone know of rock climbing around the Da Nang area? I saw a post on thecrag.com that there may be a top rope route at Marble Mountains but was wondering if there was more information. Thanks!

Hi, climbers, I am flying into Hanoi first week of April. I am looking to sport climb up to 7a. 1) Where are the best crags to go? 2) I will be with a friend. Is it easy to navigate? Are there guidebooks to purchase when there? Or is it best to hire a guide? If it's the latter, any recommendations? Thank you for your help!
