Inappropriate / Inaccurate? Dinh Vu
Dinh Vu runs 'Buffalo Travel' in Hoi An and helped us book a number of trips while we were there - from hiring drivers for the day to buying train tickets and Ha Long Bay tours.
We hired a driver for the day, who took us from Hoi An to Hue (approx 150km and includes stops at the main tourist sites en route) for around $50. We also hired a driver to take us to the My Son ruins (approx 45km from Hoi An) for $25. You can do these trips much cheaper (around $5-10) by bus if you are happy to be resticted by set departure/arrival times.
On one of our many visits to the travel shop, we bumped into an ex-pat who was buying some airline tickets from Dinh Vu and heartily recommended him, saying he'd been living in Vietnam for 3 years and booked all his travel through Dinh.
Dinh also sells books (photocopies, as is typical in Vietnam) and even offered us a free one each for providing him with repeat business! If you plan to book a few trips/journeys with Dinh, let him know as he's likely to give you a discount - we each got about $10 off our Ha Long Bay tour...
