  • 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!
