A good travel agent

The greatest vacations happen mostly due to a good travel agent. That is why choosing a travel agent is a job that you should focus on. A good travel agent will ask a lot of questions like, where would you like your vacations to take place, the reason for it, how much is your budget, the activities you would like to do, etc. And once you work with good travel agents, you can expect your vacations to be enjoyable, unforgettable and one that fits your budget.

When it comes to selecting a travel agent, there are a few points to be kept in mind. You should know your needs. For Sure, the travel agent will ask about your needs, but it is easier if you volunteer the information/needs yourself.

The following information needs to be shared with your agent:
- Purpose of your vacation
- The activities and vacation spot you’ll want to engage yourself in, once you reach your destination.
- Transportation facility e.g. cruise, long drive by car etc. while in your vacation spot
- And most important your budget
The most important part of the process is for you to ask the right questions. You should find out if the agent has their specialties like: cruise line specialty, island hopping specialty etc. You should also ask if your agent will be available 24 x 7, in time of need. Another important question to ask is how much is the fee per service and what kind of services the travel agent offers.
You also have to consider how knowledgeable they are and know everything about cruises, about vacation sprees which includes hiking, camping, Vietnam visa, etc. if you and your family love being with nature during your trip. Similarly, a full-time travel agent is more knowledgeable and will be able to come up with better deals than an agent who works part time.
When selecting a travel agent, you should also settle on whether you need a travel agent with fine destination knowledge, good product knowledge or both. For example, you have travelled to Vietnam earlier also and you know which hotel you want to stay at, but have no idea about the current prices of tours and activities in the country – so now you need is a travel agent with the product knowledge who will be able to offer you with affordable packages that suit your needs and likes. On the other hand a person, who is a first time travel to Vietnam, can benefit more by choosing a travel agent who has both the destination and the product knowledge of that particular place.
Locating the right travel agent for your planned vacation might seem little difficult at first, but by knowing what activities you want to do, where you want to stay, the budget you want to spend and so on, you will easily get to execute with a good travel agent who will make your trip worthwhile.
Hanoi Vietnam

Hanoi is located in the Red River Delta, in the center of North Vietnam. It is encompassed by Thai Nguyen Province to the north, Vinh Phuc and Ha Tay to the west and south, Bac Giang, Bac Ninh and Hung Yen provinces to the east and south-east. Hanoi means “the hinterland between the rivers” (Ha: river, Noi: interior). Hanoi’s territory is washed by the Red River (the portion of the Red River embracing Hanoi is approximately 40km long) and its tributaries, but there are some other rivers flowing through the capital, including Duong, Cau, Ca Lo, Day, Nhue, Tich, To Lich and Kim Nguu.

Climate
Hanoi is situated in a tropical monsoon zone with two main seasons. During the dry season, which lasts from October to April, it is cold and there is very little rainfall, except from January to March, when the weather is still cold but there is some light rain. The wet season, from May to September, is hot with heavy rains and storms. The average annual temperature is 23.2ºC (73.7ºF) and the average annual rainfall is 1,800mm. The average temperature in winter is 17.2ºC (62.9ºF), but can go down to 8ºC (46.4ºF). The average temperature in summer is 29.2ºC (84.6ºF, but can reach up to 39ºC (102.2ºF).
 
History
Hanoi is a sacred land of Vietnam. In the 3rd century BC, Co Loa (actually belonging to Dong Anh District) was chosen as the capital of the Au Lac Nation of Thuc An Duong Vuong (the King Thuc). Hanoi later became the core of the resistance movements against the Northern invasions. Located in the middle of the Red River Delta, the town has gradually expanded to become a very populations and rich residential center. At different periods, Hanoi had been selected as the chief city of Vietnam under the Northern domination. In the autumn of Canh Tuat lunar years (1010), Ly Thai To, the founder of the Ly Dynasty, decided to transfer the capital from Hoa Lu to Dai La, and so he rebaptized it Thang Long (Soaring Dragon). The year 1010 then became an historical date for Hanoi and for the whole country in general. For about a thousand years, the capital was called Thang Long, then changing to Dong Do, Dong Kinh, and finally to Hanoi, in 1831. This sacred piece of land thereafter continued to be the theatre of many fateful events.
 
Tourism
Throughout the thousand years of its eventful history, marked by destruction, wars and natural calamities, Hanoi still preserves many ancient architectural works including the Old Quarter and over 600 pagodas and temples. Famous sites include the One Pillar Pagoda (built in 1049), the Temple of Literature (built in 1070), Hanoi Citadel, Hanoi Opera House, President Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum…
Hanoi also characteristically contains 18 beautiful lakes such as Hoan Kiem Lake, West Lake, and Truc Bach Lake…, which are the lungs of the city, with their surrounding gardens and trees providing a vital source of energy. Today, there are many luxury and boutique hotels in Hanoi for tourists to stay.
