Hoi An is very beautiful and appealing to travelers who wants to stay longer if they can. You can add one extra day to Hoi An and shorten your trip to Halong with 2 days which I think that it is enough for this bay.

Definately 2 days in Halong Bay and 3 days in Hoi An. If you are considering having clothes made it is best to give yourself time for fittings without stressing. We have just left Hoi An after 2 days and felt it was not enough time.

I would go with 5 days in Hoi An and zero in HB, or perhaps 3 in Hoi An and 2 in Quy Nhon

(the cruise did nothing for me!)

The overnight cruise on Halong Bay is definitely worthwhile - try V-Spirit cruise. Then have 3 nights in Hoi An.

Definitely 3 days Hoi An and 2 days Halong Bay, we loved both places. If you had more time available, would add extra days again to Hoi An.

I think 2 days is enough for either. I'd take the extra day in Danang (only 40 minues from Hoi An).

Definitely do the extra time in Hoi An. An overnight trip on Halong Bay is sufficient.

To be honest, I'd only do one night in Ha Long Bay and maybe use the extra two nights for Hue, if you haven't planned to visit there already.
