2 week trip

Jump to last reply

I have two weeks to spend in Asia next month solo. I am flying in and out of Beijing and I want to spend at least 5-7 days there. Would it be pointless to fly to Hanoi for the other days (meaning would 5-7 days in Hanoi be enough)? I want to be able to experience the area, but I'm pretty easy going as far as what I want to see and do(I like to hike, meet locals when I can, try new foods, and simply walk around the city until I see something I want to do, besides the must-see lists). I have planned out a lot of what I want to do in Beijing and it can be spread out in 5-7 days. Would it be smarter to go to Shanghai and/or Xi'An instead, or even Hong Kong? I'd love to get to see Hanoi, but I don't want to feel like I didn't give myself enough time there (though I'm not sure when I'd get a second chance to go back to Asia).
