My OH would love to visit Vietnam. It's his big Bday this year and I considered getting flights for his Bday, but don't know where to start.
I think we would like nice weather (swimming), but don't want to go just for a resort somewhere as he loves to explore (while I love to spend some time sun tanning).
Where and when would you go? Where to flight to, how to get around? Is there a resort type of place from where you can explore some other parts of Vietnam too? Or perhaps spend few nights in a resort, then move (trains??) somewhere else?
Budget probably max £2,5k. He could get the flights as his Bday present (November) and travel could be made any time after that, perhaps May? I've read that is a good month for travelling to Vietnam (appreciate weather varies a LOT, but that is why I am here for advice as to where and when).
Anyone with experience and their itinerary ideas please?
Thank you for reading.
(Flight either from Manchester or London UK).
