Travelling to Vietnam 22nd December 2018 - 14th January 2019
Thinking of doing North to South as weather at this time of year will be nicer in the South and we'd like to end on a high note!
Places we want to include if possible:
HANOI (flying to here) - 4 nights including:
Sa Pa (8hr overnight train, spend 1 night here)
Ha Long Bay (1 night here?)
DA NANG - 3 nights including:
Nha Trang - 1 night
Da Lat - 2 nights
Mui Né - 2 nights (we'd like to do a sunrise sand dunes tour)
Mekong Delta - 1 night?
Ho Chi Minh City - 2 nights?
Phu Quoc - 3 nights? (ideally spend our last 3 days exploring this island before heading home - should we get direct flights from here or fly to mainland and then book our flights back to the UK)?
If anyone could answer any of these questions, it would really help us out:
A. Is this a good route to take?
B. Would appreciate suggestions for how long to spend in each too!
C. Where is good to spend Xmas and New Year?
D. If you know of any other places we should include, please let me know! Alternatively, if you think there are any on our list that aren't worth the bisit let us know as we are probably going to have to remove some as we are only there for 3 weeks!
E. Also, what is the best way to travel around Vietnam (we are four girls and we are all drivers but not sure whether driving in Vietnam is safe?)
Thank you in advance! :-)
