Hi, We are arranging the above trip and would love suggestions please.
So far...Flying into Hanoi for 4 nights. Would love to do a loop to Sapa, but not as far as Dien Bien Phu (too far with kids) then down to Mai Chau, for 4-5 nights in a 4wd (any suggestions with whom?) We will catch the train to Ninh Binh for a few nights, then continue on the train to Hue, then Hoi An, then a finish in a resort on the beach for 6 nights. Flying out of Danang. (We saw Halong Bay, and a northern loop to Ba Be and Cao Bang by minsk last time so want to try somewhere different, but with kids this time!)
We are quite adventurous and dont mind roughing it a bit, and like to avoid large tourist buses and their stops... So...any further suggestions?
Thanks in advance :)
