possible January 2016 Vietnam Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Based on recommendations from Fodor's Forum, I have been in contact with Tonkin Travels. We, two couples, were asking about a 17 day stay in Vietnam and a 7 to 10 stay in Burma. Following is the suggested itinerary.
Day 1: Arrival in Hanoi
Day 2 Hanoi city tour
Day 3 Hanoi-Street food tour
Day 4- Hanoi/Halong Bay
Day 5- Halong Bay/Hanoi/Flight to Hue
Day 6- Hue City
Day 7 Hue/free time at Vendana Lagoon
Day 8- Hue/Danang/ Hoi An
Day 9 Ho An/Walking tour
Day 10 Hoi An/cooking class
Day 11- Hoi An/ free day
Day 12 Hoi An/Hanoi/flight to Yangoon
Day 13 Yangoon
Day 14 Yangoon/Bagan
Day 15 Bagan
Day 16 Bagan/Yangoon
Day 17 Yangoon / Departure
In reviewing the itinerary, I wonder if there is enough time to fully explore Hanoi. Also, I have read a number of comments about whether or not Halong Bay is worth the trip. Instead some have recommended Nimh Binh or Luang Prabang. Any comments on this would be greatly appreciated.
We also wanted to go to Sapa, but Tonkin Travel recommended against this because of the cold weather. We do like small towns and countrysides over touristy cities and would like a similar experience in a warmer place. Any thoughts?
We are two healthy, active couples, both in our early 70s, who have done extensive, independent travel in the past. We are not sure that we want our itinerary as regimented as outlined. Any comments?
We have just begun to explore Burma and would appreciate any feedback on the time framework as mentioned above. All thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Would it perhaps be better to go a little later in the year than January/early February?
