Possible to get from Vietnam to Phillipines by boat?

Was wondering if anyone knows if there are any passenger ferries from maybe Nha Trang area to the Phillippines? Help would be greatly appreciated! 😊

As far as I know the only sea connection between anywhere and the Philippines is from Sandakan in Malaysian Borneo to Zamboanga in Mindinao and it is doubtful whether this is actually possible. Be aware that when you fly into the Philippines you absolutely must have a ticket out of the country. You will probably not be permitted to even board your flight without proof of this, I met several people who were forced to purchase a ticket in the airport just to get on the flight to the Phillipines, which is strange because you can renew your visa once you are there almost indefinitely. I had a round trip arriving and leaving 5 months later and this was no problem, although you only get 30 days on arrival. The Philippines is one of my personal favorite countries, and I have been to all SE Asian countries except Myanmar, Brunei and East Timor. Don't miss it! Reply to this

Hi Dani,

Beside some seriously nice cruise ships (and expensive), Iseriously doubt you will find any connection between the two countries by boat.
