Planning for 1 week in Vietnam

Jump to last reply

Good morning Asia Experts,

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of planning our 1 month trip to Asia February 2017. We plan to spend a week in Vietnam, then Off to northern Thailand, possibly Myanmar. The focus of this post is to decide what to do in Vietnam.

We are flying in to Ho Chi Minh City, arriving on a Tuesday. How much time to devote to HCMC? We enjoy food and will take a food tour there. Also, just sightseeing, maybe a bike tour? Spa for sure! I thought we'd stay until Saturday, then move to a different location in Vietnam,

I've been looking at how best to get up to Chang Mai Thailand, and it seems that it is substantially less expensive to fly from Saigon than Hanoi, so probably stay somewhere in the Saigon area.

Any and all recommendations as to where to spend a few more days are appreciated. Hoping for somewhere that's easy to get to. Bus? Train?

Thanks in advance,

Gin
