Help with a 10 day itinery please

Hi all we are thinking about a trip in Feb but have no idea where to stay and what to do for our 10 days. We love nice beaches and water sports, shopping and visiting villages. We would love to get some feedback to help us out. Kind regards

Squaw, two things to keep in mind as you make your plans:

1. Tet, or Vietnamese New Year, is in early Feb. Its best to avoid travel during this period as transportation gets very crowded, prices increase dramatically, and many shops and restaurants close for the holiday.

2. In Feb. its still quite cold in the north, definitely not beach weather. So its best that you stick to the southern part of the country. One place you may want to look into in Nha Trang. Phuc Quoc island also has lovely beaches but you'd be limited in shopping and other attractions.

February is quite cold in the North so as Owee mentioned that you should stick with the South and end your trip at the Beach in Nha Trang or Phu Quoc.

Start your tour in Saigon for 2 nights to visit the city tour and cu Chi tunnels then Mekong delta for 3 nights can combine homestay, boat trips, biking, cooking class etc and then 3 nights at the beach and back to Saigon for shopping before heading home.

Cheers,

Nhung
