Splitting time between Hoi An and Hue

Jump to last reply

For the past month or so I have been putting together an itinerary for SE Asia, the second leg of an eight-week New Zealand—SE Asia—Japan trip.

As things stand right now, we arrive in Hanoi on February 29, 2016. We fly to Luang Prabang on March 5, and then on to Siem Reap on March 9.

It's the next part where I need a reasonableness check. The tentative plan is to fly from Siem Reap to Da Nang on the evening of March 14, 2016, and then back to Hanoi on the afternoon of March 21.

I think we'd like to visit both Hoi An and Hue, so the question becomes: what's a reasonable split between the two? We would arrive in Da Nang at 2045 on March 14, then taxi to Hoi An. We could spend three full days there, allowing a day-trip to My Son, and then get a drive to Hue on March 18. We'd return to Da Nang in the late afternoon of March 20, visit the Museum of Cham Sculpture on the morning of March 21, and then catch the 1320 flight to Hanoi that afternoon. (We are booked to fly HAN-HND on the afternoon of March 22.)

Are we overdoing one or the other? We like historic sites, but are equally happy on food tours, at cooking lessons, poking through markets, or lounging about in cafés.

If you have any observations or advice, I'd be grateful.
