Tourist information

For new travelers, Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam. Compared to Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon) it is less populated and more on the rural side. The Hanoi International Airport is roughly 30 minutes from the Grand Loyal Poker Club. The best way to get to the venue is via Grab car but make sure to have the local currency on hand – the Vietnamese Dong. There are exchange counters at the airport at a decent rate.

If you are in need of accommodations, no need to look further than the venue itself. The poker room is located at the Grand Loyal Hotel. Make sure to ask if player rates are available.
