  1. Hi Owee. Planning a trip to Vietnam from 16 Dec to 28 Dec. Very early stages but looking for a 12 day tour that’s suitable for us. We are 2 adults and 2 kids (11 and 9 years). Looking to start in Ho Chi Minh and finish in Hanoi.

    Many thanks

  2. Dear Owee,

    I was wondering whether you’d mind casting your knowledgable eye over my itinerary for Vietnam – a whistle-stop 18 day trip starting on Wednesday next week.

    I appreciate that I (and my friend) have limited time and, having never been to Vietnam before, we could do with someone well-informed like yourself to see if anything seems out of place or unrealistic..

    Many thanks,

    Jonny

      1. 12 days is not very much time. I suggest sticking to the south as it can be quite chilly in the north. I know Halong Bay is on most people lists but you will be too rushed to see much other than the very mainstream of places. With 2 kids I might suggest
        Saigon for 2 nights, Nha Trang 2 nights, Hoi An 2 nights, Hue 2 nights, and Hanoi 2 nights………….. That is the old worn path or……
        Saigon 3 nights, Dalat 1 night, Buon Ma Thuot 1 night, Nha Trang 2 nights, Hoi An/ Hue for 4 nights

  3. Hi Owee,

    Your website and advice is great!

    I wonder could you give me some helpful hints –

    Myself and my boyfriend (we’re both 26) are planning a trip to Vietnam in June this year. We only have 16 days. Our plan is to fly into Hanoi and work our way down south spending the last 3 days in mui ne or phu quoc relaxing in a nice resort before flying home.

    I would love to include a few days in Cambodia in our trip but I’m not sure if we will have time. What do you think?

    Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    H

    1. With 16 days I am afraid you barely have enough time to see Vietnam less Cambodia. Mui Ne is a bit inconvenient to get to (3-5 Hr bus). There are nice resaorts there and it is a good spot for wind based water sports. Expect signage and most language in Russian. Phu Quoc is only starting to head into its rainy season and peak should be over with prices not so inflated. If it was up to me, I probably would pick Phu Quoc…. You might also want to look at a beach resort in Hoi An or spend a few extra days in Nha Trang and move to a resort (though there are not a lot of them) or even take a look in the Doc Let area (Jungla Beach for example)

    1. The purpose of the itinerary links is to simply give people an idea of places to visit. It can be confusing for a person who has never been here to sort through all of the information, factual and false, and get an idea of where to go. I will answer your question in a private email
