HCMC vs. Hanoi

Jump to last reply

Hi all! Going to Viet Nam /Cambodia for 10 days in November.

Had planned Hanoi, Halong Bay cruise, and Siem Reap/Angkor Wat.

After reading some trip reports on tripadvisor, i'm freaking out a little about Hanoi. Seems a lot of people found it dirty, full of scams and unfriendly people compared to HCMC. Should I spend time in HCMC and less in Hanoi to get a better impression of the country? Seems the middle of the country will be in the rainy season during the trip. Already booked my tickets into Hanoi out of Siem Reap already so can't change that
