Your Trip Maps


Whether you need a visa to enter Vietnam depends on your nationality and the duration of your stay. Here's a general guideline:

  • Visa Exemption: Some nationalities are exempt from visa requirements for certain periods of stay. For example, citizens of several ASEAN countries, as well as certain European countries, can enter Vietnam without a visa for stays of up to 15 to 30 days.
  • Visa on Arrival (VOA): For citizens of countries that do not qualify for visa exemption, you may be eligible to obtain a visa on arrival (VOA) if you are arriving by air. However, you need to apply for a visa approval letter online in advance and then obtain the visa stamp upon arrival at one of the international airports in Vietnam.
  • E-Visa: Some nationalities are eligible to apply for an e-visa online, which allows for a single-entry visit of up to 30 days. The e-visa must be applied for in advance through the official website of the Vietnam Immigration Department.
  • Visa from Embassy or Consulate: If you do not qualify for visa exemption, VOA, or e-visa, you will need to apply for a visa at the nearest Vietnamese embassy or consulate before traveling to Vietnam.

It's essential to check the specific visa requirements based on your nationality and travel plans before your trip to Vietnam to ensure compliance with immigration regulations.


For traveling in South Vietnam and Dalat in November, it's advisable to pack a variety of clothing to accommodate the different climates and activities. Here's a suggested packing list:

  • Lightweight clothing: Bring breathable, moisture-wicking clothes for the warmer weather in South Vietnam, including shorts, T-shirts, and dresses. For Dalat's cooler climate, pack long-sleeved shirts, pants, and a light jacket or sweater for the evenings.
  • Sun protection: Don't forget to pack sunscreen with a high SPF, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat to protect yourself from the strong sun, especially in South Vietnam.
  • Rain gear: While November generally sees lower rainfall, it's still a good idea to pack a compact umbrella or a lightweight raincoat, especially for sudden showers in Dalat.
  • Comfortable walking shoes: Bring sturdy walking shoes or sandals for exploring cities and trekking in Dalat's scenic countryside.
  • Insect repellent: Mosquitoes can be present, especially in more rural areas, so pack insect repellent to avoid bites.
  • Travel adapter and charger: Ensure you have the appropriate power adapter for Vietnam's electrical outlets and bring chargers for your electronic devices.
  • Personal medication and toiletries: Pack any necessary medications, along with toiletries such as shampoo, toothpaste, and a first aid kit.
  • Travel documents: Don't forget your passport, travel insurance, flight tickets, and any necessary visas for your trip.
  • Camera and accessories: Capture the beautiful landscapes and memorable moments of your trip with a camera or smartphone, along with extra memory cards and batteries.
  • Light backpack: Bring a small backpack or daypack to carry essentials like water, snacks, a map, and a guidebook while exploring.

In November, South Vietnam typically experiences warm and humid weather with occasional rain showers. Temperatures range from around 25 to 32 degrees Celsius (77 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit). While it's generally sunny and pleasant, there may be short bursts of rain due to the tail end of the rainy season. It's advisable to pack lightweight clothing, sunscreen, and an umbrella or raincoat for any unexpected showers.

Dalat experiences cool and pleasant weather due to its high elevation. Temperatures typically range from around 15 to 24 degrees Celsius (59 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day, with cooler evenings. November marks the end of the rainy season in Dalat, so you can expect relatively dry conditions with occasional light showers. The cooler temperatures and lower humidity make November an ideal time to visit Dalat for outdoor activities and sightseeing.

The 2025 Tour de Viet will be a Gravel and Road Bicycle Challenge, over 6 Stages in North Vietnam, using sealed and some unsealed road surfaces.
This event and format will continue to be offered to tour / amateur groups of any size, at any time of the year, so you can enjoy a fully supported, challenging cycling tour.

 Entry in the 2025 TDV will provide accommodation and transport for Teams to have 8 members - 6 cyclists and 2 supporters.   Each Team will manage themselves to ensure a minimum specified number of cyclists riding at all times.   Each team will have their own transport.

The long term goal is for 2025 TDV to develop into a 3-week Grand Tour of all of Vietnam, while still providing private guided touring trips on request.   Sister events include each week of the 3-week tour, or tours based in one location, such as Dalat (south VN), Da Nang (central) and Ha Giang (north).

Several factors have led to Tour de Viet's (TDV) partnership with Blue Dragon Childen's Foundation (BDCF).

The TDV founders are Vietnamese and Australian, and BDCF is an Australian NGO working in Vietnam from 2002.   BDCF rescues Vietnamese children caught in human trafficking, even bringing them home from other countries, and leads the way in helping change applicable laws.   The victims often feel they have no choice and knowingly walk into danger, or are taken advantage of with false promises.   BDCF has a Nationwide & International reputation for it's honesty, effectiveness and real results, and provide ongoing education and workforce training for kids saved from the streets.
TDV seeks to use the characteristics of cycling, such as resilience to keep going and freedom to go where you like, to inspire the Staff, Families and Kids of BDCF to keep going one more day.   It will also help to inspire you as you see a mountain ahead - one pedal-stroke at a time.  TDV will provide opportunities for Particiapants to meet BDCF to understand their story and feel a connection to them, seeing the results of donations - not just putting cash in a container.   The TDV will be going through many areas affected by trafficking and where BDCF works.

These insights will inspire Particiapants and give more meaning to your Trip.   We believe you will be able to more readily inspire others to join you, to fundraise for donations or help obtain sponsorship for your Team.   Ultimately we want to increase the ability of BDCF to help more Vietnamese families and communities, to give a little thanks back for the wonderful country and opportunity to visit this land.

TDV are very honoured to be associated with Blue Dragon, and during our Welcome Dinner we'll ask Participants to kindly donate $1 USD each to BDCF.
