My husband and I are planning a trip to Vietnam at the end of March and I've roughly sketched out the below itinerary for us and would love to hear anyones thoughts on whether we are trying to squeeze in to much or not.
Day 1 - Arrive into HoChi Minh late in evening
Day 2 - Sightseeing around the city, maybe tunnels??
Day 3 - Mekong Delta day trip
Day 4 - Early morning flight to Hanoi, day sightseeing
Day 5 - Hanoi
Day 6 - Hanoi, overnight train to Sapa
Day 7 - Sapa
Day 8 - Sapa, overnight train back to Hanoi
Day 9 - Trip to Halong Bay
Day 10 - Halong Bay
Day 11 - early morning flight to Hue
Day 12 - Hue, afternoon trip to Hoi An
Day 13 - Hoi An
Day 14 - Hoi An
Day 15 - Trip back to Ho Chi Minh for late flight home.
I'm think I could possibly cut out the first day in Ho Chi Minh and have the Mekong day trip booked before we arrive as I hear Ho Chi Minh isn't that great??
Also thinking I could possible cut out the 3rd day in Hanoi and add an extra day in Hoi An as we want to end the trip with some solid R and R.
Look forward to any comments.
