Tripadvisors... please give us some advice!
I'm planning a holiday in Vietnam with a good friend of mine and we're both really keen to get as much advice as possible before we plan the trip. We've made a basic itinerary (see below) but would love any input on whether or not it looks feasible/suitable/stupid or not.
- two 25 year old males with two weeks of annual leave
- flights from UK already booked arriving in AND leaving from Ho Chi Minh
- early October
- ample savings to fund any activities you recommend
Aim of the trip:
- have fun
- move around and see the sights
- meet other young people
- hostels rather than hotels to faciltate the above three aims
Current idea for our itinerary:
day 0 (landing in evening) - go out in Ho Chi Minh
day 1 - day trip to Cu Chi tunnels
day 2 - day trip to Mekong Delta
day 3 - fly to Hanoi and have a night out in Hanoi
day 4 - day in Hanoi and overnight travel to Sapa
day 5 - day in Sapa +/- motorbikes
day 6 - maybe organise a trek for this day?
day 7 - get back to Hanoi / go to Halong Bay
day 8 - day in Halong Bay
day 9 - another day in Halong Bay
day 10 - get back to Ho Chi Minh
day 11 - Mui Ne
day 12 - Mui Ne
Day 13 - Mui Ne
Day 14 - fly home from Ho Chi Minh
Are we crazy or is this possible?
Any advice on other things to do? Other ways to structure the holiday?
We haven't booked the internal flight as of yet.
We would seriously love any and all feedback on the above plan... we're going in pretty blind and would really appreciate any tips!
