New Site Lets you Search Vietnamese Plane, Train and Ferry Tickets in English

As a foreigner in Saigon, you don’t need to know much Vietnamese to get by. But when it comes to travel, especially by modes that don’t include wings, things can get pretty complicated. Enter, a new site which lets you search and purchase plane, train and ferry tickets online and in English.

To take advantage of Asia’s $326 billion in annual travel bookings, Spaniard Alberto Moreno and his team created a “multi-modal search engine” which recommends multiple routes and methods for getting to your desired Vietnam destination.        

Users pick the origin, destination, arrival or leaving time and day, type of transport, and price. Based on this information, the site will spit out route and price options based on data collected from local vendors (bus companies, etc.).

While there are similar sites, such as that are further along, is the only one which includes this many modes of travel and is available English.
