Q. CAN YOU ARRANGE A HOTEL FOR ME?
A. We understand that we are the only up to date reliable source of information regarding accommodation on Con Dao.
If you do have any questions please refer to the "Where to Stay" section (with links to websites) or read this report first!
As for hotels, we work with a number of local hotels and know the good and the bad. We’ll be happy to make reservations for you, but we cannot make any reservations or recommendations without the following information:
Travel dates, number of guests, specific requirements i.e.: budget, on/off the beach road (around $15 off, $20 on, per night per room), pool, internet, flight details if available. The more information you give us, the more acurately we can make recommendations.
Q. DO YOU PROVIDE AIRPORT TRANSFER?
A. See the "Getting In and Around" section.
Q. HOW DO I OBTAIN A VISA?
A. The Vietnamese visa-on-arrival system works well if you arrive by air. We have had good experience with www.myvietnamvisa.com. Please be aware that you will have to pay a stamp fee on arrival, this must be paid in USD. Be sure to bring 2 passport photos with you.
If arriving overland, be sure to apply for a visa in your home country, or in the Vietnamese embassy in the country you find yourself in.
Q. WHAT WILL THE WEATHER BE LIKE?
A. The weather in Con Dao is highly unpredictable. Although we have put up a weather schedule on our Dive! Page, this is merely a rough estimate. The weather might be different when you arrive here. We are not able to predict the weather in advance, due to lack of sources.
Do not trust the weather reports anywhere on the internet, these are often incorrect! (usually they predict thunderstorms and rain for everyday of the year)
