I've been negotiating with a certain hotel in Hanoi via email about a package deal to include a room, Halong Bay tour and airport transfers. They have given me a deal that I'd like to take, but when it came time to confirm, they asked for 30% deposit and the only payment options they gave were Western Union, Paypal, credit card via fax or bank deposit, none of which sound particularly secure to me. It sounds very fishy, so I've asked them to provide me with another option. Has anyone experienced something similar and can offer advice? I know things are very different over here, but I'd rather not get scammed for 30% of what looks like a reasonable (but not even too cheap) deal.
