8 days in Vietnam - should i even bother?

Jump to last reply

I have only 8 days and my husband really wants to go to Vietnam.

So I've come up with this itinerary - he's set on Hoi An and Halong Bay.

i understand I'm missing the mekong portion, Hue, a ton of stuff in between and prolly not enough time in Saigon or Hanoi ....im asking myself what's the point of traveling like this. Or I could always think i can return to Vietnam and explore what I missed and stay longer at the places I really enjoy this time?

Any advice?

arriving 21st December to Saigon in the morning
22 - Saigon - i may or may not do the Cu Chi tunnels. I might just want to soak up Saigon.
23 Saigon to hoi An.
24 Hoi An
25 Hoi An
26 Hoi An to Hanoi
27 over to Halong by by boat - spend night in boat
28 back to Hanoi by 4pm.
29 morning flight out of Vietnam.

I'm originally from india and the traffic, humidity doesn't bother us sooo...yeah i get that saigon/hanoi are horribly crowded :) Apart from that....is there another way to organize this? im leaving 2.5 days in hoi An to soak up Hoi An...not interested in doing Hue right now.

thanks!
