First time to Vietnam. Need intinerary help please.

by Pincus40 »

We need some help on our itinerary.  We are a couple in our 50s traveling to Vietnam for the first time.  We like history, arts, food, nature etc.  Here is what we have so far:

 

We arrive in Ho Chi Min city on October 28th in the morning.

9/28 Tour through HCMC

9/29 HCMC in the am.  Take evening flight to Hanoi

9/30 Hanoi

9/31 Hanoi

 

10/1 – 10/4 – Possibly get a guide and go to Mai Chau, Pu Luong and Ninh Binh –

               We could use help on this part!

 

10/5 Head to Ha Long Bay and take 2 night cruise – thinking of taking the Dragon Legend – feedback please.

 

10/7 fly from Hai Phong to Da Nang, then to Hoi An

10/8 Hoi An

10/9 Hoi An

10/10 Hoi An

 

10/11 Drive to Hue with guide and stops along the way

10/12 Hue

10/13 early flight to HCMC for flight home.

 

We are uncertain about the Mai Chau/Pu Luong/Ninh Binh part of the trip.  We know it will be beautiful but, is that too much time for that area?

 

 

Should we use those days to see the Mekong Delta instead?  Any other suggestions that we should see instead?

It is too much time for Mai Chau, Pu Luong and Ninh Binh. You can think of Mekong Delta (1 or 2 night stay) and 1 night stay in Ninh Binh (Trang An and Tam Coc).

Yes, 3 days are enough for Mai Chau, Pu Luong and Ninh Binh. You can use your leftover time to seeing the beauty of Mekong Delta. 1 day and night tour is sufficient for Mekong delta. It's really a very beautiful place to visit in Vietnam..
