We've managed to come out with a rough itinerary and since this would be our first trip to Central Vietnam, we'd really appreciate any advice or comments. Thanks!
Arriving in Danang in the evening, we may spend the night at a hotel either in the city centre or My Khe Beach (which is more lively at night?) and then set off on a car trip to Hue the next morning. We'll either spend 1 night at Hue or just do a day trip to Hue from Danang. If the latter, will we have time to see the Marble Mountains? Or do we need a separate day trip for that and HV Pass/China Beach, etc? If we stayover in Hue then should we take a train there and a car back? What's the better option?
Once we're done with Hue and Danang we'll take a cab to Hoi An where we'll check into a beach resort. Any idea how much are we looking at for cab fare? In Hanoi we encountered cabbies who rigged their meters. Not sure if this is also happening here. Once in Hoi An, we'll explore the town on our own (is that do-able?) as well as spend some time at Cua Dai beach. Then we'll head back up to Danang to catch our flight home.
