    Sep/Oct is a good time to visit Hanoi — not too hot or cold, not too rainy.
    You can get a Vietnamese travel visa on arrival: bring $30 US cash (yeah, seriously) and prepare for about a 1hr wait at the airport.
    Take a day or two to visit Halong Bay (5hr bus from Hanoi), it's awesome.


    Hanoi/Vietnam immigration is crazy, with a mad dash to get to the Visa window first off the plane.
    It costs more, but it's a bit easier Vietnam side if you get your Visa in advance from the Wellington embassy.


    Long layover in Manilla is the terrible aspect of this deal, not some bonus lol


      Manila pro tip: you're 90% less likely to get kidnapped if you don't leave the airport!
