Hanoi to HK ... in 19 Days.

Jump to last reply

I will be flying into Hanoi on 15th May and out of Hong Kong on 04th June which gives me 19 full days to explore the bits inbetween (public transport / budget hotels). What I am looking for from those who know the area, is advice on how to structure this journey; i.e. how many days where, and in which order? I appreciate this is just not enough time to explore all the region's attractions thoroughly, and getting from A to B will take time. I've narrowed things down and, if possible, I would like to visit the following areas. The list is in order of importance to me, though I am certainly open to suggestions to drop one place and visit somewhere else as an alternative. That list:

1. Ninh Binh area (Tam Coc / Van Long / Cuc Phuong / Kenh Ga)

2. Sapa (and Can Cau market, Saturday and Bac Ha Market on a Sunday)

3. Hanoi City (at least one weekday)

4. Hong Kong (2 full days)

5. Macau (One daytrip from HK?)

6. Yangshuo area. (Also possibly the Longsheng / Rice Terraces area?)

7. Guangzhou

I visited Hanoi back in 1996 so I do not need to linger there - I need one weekday in order to meet up with a friend. I also visited Halong Bay back then; i'd like to return (to Cat Ba in particular) but I think it's probably too much!

All advice and direction very much appreciated.
