Nha Trang/Dalat vs Ho Chi Minh/Mekong Delta?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone- I know it's tough to get answers for questions like this because travel is so subjective but I thought if I got an overwhelming opinion one way or the other it might help with this decision. A friend and I have about 4 days to play with at the back end of our Vietnam trip and are debating spending them at either of the above areas. A little background about us and our interests: single gals in our 30s, fun-loving but not looking to "party", outdoorsy (plan to do quite a bit of hiking) but also love cities (live in NYC) and appreciate some good beach time as well. Prior to arriving in either of these destinations we will have already covered Hanoi, Sapa, Halong Bay, Hue and Hoi An with a possible side trip to Cham Islands, weather permitting. We will be there end of Feb thru March 12.

What appeals to us about Nha Trang/Dalat area: another opportunity for beach time incase our attempt at Cham Islands is a bust (although it seems like the beach is kinda trashy - literally) as well as tackle another hike (or two) in Dalat which sounds quite lovely, assuming the trails take us away from the honeymooning crowds.

What appeals to us about HCMC/Mekong: we are always up for meandering around a city, checking out historical sites and just seems a shame to miss Saigon. Mekong also sounds like a unique experience that some people seem to rave about.

Would appreciate any thoughts/opinions on the subject. Thanks to anyone who has read this far! :)
