I'm coming to Vietnam at the end of the year, staying there over Christmas. I have flights to HCMC an back. I try to get an idea what id doable in 2 weeks. I probably travel solo, atleast some of the time.
How much time should I count for HCMC? What else should I see? I don't try to see all country now but would like to get a good idea how it is. So HCHC, seaside and something else? I don't want to have too tight schedule; also want to relax and not carry my bag every day to a new place.
How much is Christmas affecting everything? Are buses/trains running normally? Shops open?
Thanks for all your help!
