Georgetown and Hanoi - coming up soon, advice please.

Jump to last reply

Dates are 16 April - 4 May 2016.

We have 18 nights including two overnight flights, so 16 nights on the ground. I'm thinking to split the time - 6 nights in Georgetown Penang, and 10 in the north of Vietnam based in Hanoi.
Does this sound like a fair split of the time available?
(We have been to Hanoi before - for 2 weeks in 2009. We saw a lot of the city sights, and included trips to Sapa and Ha Long bay).

For this trip I'm considering :
1. Ninh Binh area for 2 or 3 nights for some mild trekking.
2. Grab a cheap flight to Hue for 2 or 3 nights (we have been to Hoi An but not Hue).
3. Bai tu long bay - we like being on the water.
4. Fly to Da Nang, train to Hue takes 4 hours, we like trains. Fly back to Hanoi.

What would you choose or not, and why ?
Any recommendations for other areas ?

We will be flying with AirAsia to KL from our local airport as there's easy connections to both Penang and Hanoi.

Any hotel recommendations for Georgetown, Hanoi or Hue ?
We like small family run places with some character in a central location. The budget is negotiable, but let's say US$70 per night.

Many thanks for any help.
