Hey guys, I'm in the very early stages of planning a trip to Thailand and Vietnam. Have more or less sorted our itininery for Thailand, but have not really looked much at Vietnam yet.
I am traveling with two girlfriends, and one of them would like to go to Vietnam as she is interested in war history. I am not particularly interested, but happy to tag along as I plan on dragging her around numerous temples in Thailand. My other friend has never travelled to an Asian country before and is happy for us to do all the planning.
Does anyone have any advice on places we simply must visit in Vietnam? We are on a very tight budget; a maximum of $au45/day (£26/89,000 Dong).
I am frantically researching at the moment, but would really appreciate input from anyone who has recently travelled to Vietnam on places to visit, accomodation (we are happy to live it rough) and general costs.
Thanks in advance!
