Vietnam 6-7 day trip


I'm flying into Hanoi for a 6 or 7 night trip.

We are flying in from Singapore so we will not have to deal with jetlag or anything...

I was thinking I'd try to get a morning flight, get to Hanoi and have at least a half day, spend the entire next day and night there....

After that I'd have 4 or 5 more nights....

I've heard Mai Chau and Halong Bay are the good places to travel to that are close by.

How would I go about incorporating those 2 places into the trip?

Thank you!

Hanoi, Vietnam

Those are different roads to go to Halong bay and Maichau from Hanoi. So you will go for different trips. You can go on package trip to Halong bay for saving money. I like spend a night at Ban Lac(Maichau). it costs around $8usd/night, it is very interesting to see the traditional music show of Muong ethnic minority in their village. We usually go there with a small group, it is more fun. A private car with english speaking driver to get to Mai Chau is a good idea. It costs around $80usd to rent a car for 2days.

Hope this help.
