Yunnan Province of China is located in the southwest border, bordering Myanmar in the West and Laos and Vietnam in the south. The whole southern part of Honghe Prefecture borders Vietnam, and Yunnan's three Sino-Vietnamese ports, two of which are in Honghe prefecture. So in Hekou, I plan to spend one day in Vietnam tomorrow, while in Hekou, many international travel agencies provide one-day trip to the Vietnamese border, which is a one-day trip to Sabah. So as soon as the bus arrived, I signed up for a station wagon across the road. The procedures for handling one-day passes at estuaries are quite stringent. In addition to filling in a full range of verifiable information and signing the names of three paper heads, two photographs are taken at travel agencies and public security bureaus, one for identification and one for certification. At 10 o'clock on time, the tour guide of the travel agency called me to go to the travel agency to prepare for departure. She took me across the border and then picked me up at the Vietnam Frontier Station by the tour guide there. Walking up to the Sino-Vietnamese border bridge on Nanxi River, I have no excitement about crossing the national gate at all. Instead, my domestic tour guide is very responsible for reminding me whether to take a picture in front of the national gate. He also told me that the right side of the bridge is the junction of Nanxi River and Honghe River, and the left side of the railway is the meter-gauge railway connecting China and Vietnam. Chinese tour guides sent me to Vietnam's frontier defense, where there have been several Vietnamese tour guides waiting there, are very beautiful girls, one mouth is fluent in Chinese. When I returned to the estuary from Sabah, it was sunset. When I crossed the Vietnamese border, I found that my entry stamp had not been struck on my border control certificate. So the tour guide immediately went to the entry window and struck an entry stamp. Then, when I left the country, I struck the exit stamp again. It shows that Vietnamese border control is not as strict as that in China.
Hekou Port is a national first-class port, the largest port in Yunnan section of the Sino-Vietnamese border, and the terminal of Kunhe section of Yunnan-Vietnam Railway. Located in Hekou County, Honghe Prefecture, Yunnan Province, across the river from Vietnam's Old Street, the border line is 193 kilometers long. The scenery on the bridge is still good, but it can not be regarded as a tourist area.
There are more Vietnamese border people at the port, peddling tobacco and selling handicraft products. They are proud of the Chinese people. They have made a profit of 100 times. They can bargain and not pay back too much. However, Vietnamese people are still funny, and vague Chinese is half-guessed and half understood.
The estuary is very small, but its geographical location is special. It is separated from Vietnam by a river, so it is very famous. On the port side, you can overlook Vietnam across the street. Every morning, after watching the border guard raise the national flag, you can watch the Vietnamese rush through customs after switching on and off. It's very lively. Although the estuary is small, most Vietnamese are doing business. They are proud of pitting Chinese people. So many prices are empty, anything can be bargained, bargaining time, feel these Vietnamese are still pretty cute.
When traveling to the estuary, we naturally have to visit the port. It is not interesting, but it has obvious characteristics. Vietnamese border people come with a lot of goods (a lot of agricultural products). Most of the people on China's side used to go sightseeing. There are many Vietnamese businesses in Hekou, especially in the service industry. Shampoo + body massage is 30 yuan, foot washing + body massage is 60 yuan, which is much cheaper than the mainland, and Vietnamese technicians are more dedicated. Some things in the estuary are also quite distinctive.
A group of three people, in Yunnan Hekou International Travel Agency, organized a two-day tour to Vietnam (Old Street, Sabah), actually only one and a half days, RMB690 per person (including 1 Hotel Buffet breakfast, 2 meals, 1 night hotel accommodation with 3 rooms, visa fees), plus RMB80 per person (transfer to 3 person package, special tour guide, special bus pick-up). Visa: Domestic compatriots, accompanied by travel agents to the exit and entry of the Public Security Bureau with identity cards, need to prepare a photo, which takes 2-3 hours. Hong Kong people must hold a passport. From Monday to Friday, they must be processed by the travel agency before 5 o'clock of office time (visas cannot be processed on Saturdays and Sundays). Passports only need to be reserved for at least 10 minutes before office time. Travel agency staff send information on the computer to apply for visas. It takes only about 5 minutes on that day to complete the visa. Not wanting to merge, everyone paid RMB80 to go to Sabah mainly, but the local renovation is under way and the dust is rolling. It's very comfortable to go to Sabah with small business; the hotel is also very satisfied and the room is very large; breakfast is the hotel's buffet breakfast is very rich and delicious; the first day's lunch is 3 dishes and 1 soup (or 4 dishes and 1 soup)? Forget it). It tastes good. It's totally not as bad as the predecessors said. It's absolutely enough to eat. You don't have to add food at your own expense. Dinner is self-paid, because the language is not clear, so we go to the lunchtime restaurant to eat (guide to help us order), in fact, it is not a problem, because the Chinese menu, three people about RMB400 (we will advance the Vietnamese shield plus 100 yuan paid), a bit expensive, but the taste is OK. The second day of lunch did not eat, because back. It was only around 11 o'clock when we returned to Hekou's travel agency and each person returned RMB25. As for the problem of converting Vietnamese dong, according to the instructions of the staff of the travel agency, we exchanged RMB100 from the aunt sitting on the roadside outside the travel agency because we did not know how much to use, so each person only exchanged RMB100; but in fact, there was no need for it, because it was possible to exchange RMB100 in Sabah. Direct use of Renminbi (even small stalls can use Renminbi), just remember to bring more change, do not need to find renewal will be more convenient. Travel agencies can deposit large luggage, convenient to come back. When we first arrived at the estuary, the streets near the port are full of Yunnan Hekou International Travel Agency, one has at least two or three identical names, it is a bit confusing, until we know that they are all originally. Branches run by the same travel agency, so the prices are the same.
The popularity is very strong, and it's also very atmospheric! __________ It's worth a visit!
