The cruise from Singapore to Ho Chi Minh City usually takes about 9-10 days.

South Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City) has warm weather all year round, making it suitable for travelers to come at any time. However, you should expect sudden rain during the rainy season (June – November), and some might find unbearable temperatures during the dry season, especially from March to May.

 Vietnam is considered to be a more budget-friendly option than Thailand. Accommodations, food, and transportation are all cheaper in Vietnam, especially in rural areas
