    You're welcome. Some friends pointed out that S$100 a day is too cheap.
    This can be achieved as that was what I did with the previous successful holiday trip to south vietnam.

    $100 per day is possible.

    2 or 3 more addtions would be optimum. even though the price is expected to be low, targetting a 3 1/2 star hotel in the middle of all the towns we are staying.

    Hi guys, just came back from Xiamen, China. Looks like good interest on this trip. Pls pm me your email and phone number. I'll need to collect S$100 from those going for booking of ticket and confirmation of trip. Will close this thread this Wednessday and start the booking of the tickets. I will need the passport number, date of expiry and, your passport name for the booking of the tickets.

    The trip will be finalised at the meeting this wednessday at Bugis Junction 7.30pm McDonalds.
    Once I collect S$200 instead of 100 (airfare is around 180 including airport taxes etc) from all participants for the booking of the ticket from tiger airways and get the details for the booking such as the passport name, passport number, date of expiry and birthday.
    The trip will be from 7th June (getting the 6 am flight) and back on the 14th (7.30am flight).
    Tentative plan is to visit Phan Thiet (Sand dunes), then Hoi An, Natrang, Danang, Hue, Dalat and then back to Ho Chi Min City. Hotels should be 3 1/2 stars in town itself so that the ladies can shop around apart from photography.

    The ticket for the trip to central vietnam from 7th June (flight TR328-departure time 12.50pm) to 14th June (flight TR327-departure time 7.30am) has been booked for those who paid up already. Those who have not paid up but wish to go can still contact me to make arrangement but need to book the plane ticket yourself.
    Do pm me your contact number and email. I will make arrangement with the tour group on the details of the trip and finalise in 2 weeks time.

    The itinerary for the trip is confirmed. The route will be HCM then Phan Thiet, Mui Ne, Natrang,
    Danang, Hoi An, My Son, Hue, and then fly back by domestic flight to HCM for the flight home.
    Cost of tour is about US$500 which includes a 35 bus seater with a good aircon and 3 stars hotel in all the towns. there will be many sunrise and sunsets to shoot.
    There is still around 3 places available but like I said you may have to book your own tiger airways ticket for the same flight to and fro.
