Vietnam-South and Central itinerary

Jump to last reply

I have had Vietnam on my bucket list for a long time and would like to make it happen this year. I am struggling with how to get around to the places on my list and what order. My husband and I are trying to plan a 2 week trip leaving the US the 3rd week of November. I have chosen to do the south and central and save northern Vietnam for another trip since we are limited on days. We will be flying into Ho Chi Min City late in the evening, so we want to start our trip with 2 nights there. The other places on our list are the Mekong Delta (3 nights?) (would really like to do a bike or boat tour-any suggestions appreciated), from that area I have heard you can take a boat out to Phu Quoc Island where we would like to stay for 3 or 4 nights. We also would like to visit
Da Lat for 2 or 3 nights. Trying to figure out the best way to do that. Fly from Phu Quoc to HMC to Dalat, or hire a car from HMC ( I will mention here that we would rather hire someone to drive us. I have heard all about seeing Vietnam by motorbike, but we don;t want to be the ones driving!)
Or maybe we should fly from HMC to Nha Trang on the coast for 2 nights and drive to Dalat from there? Then fly from Dalat back to HMC for flight out.
To sum up, we would like most to visit The Mekong Delta, Phu Quoc Island, and Dalat. We arrive and depart out of HMC. How best to travel from HMC and in what order?
I would also like to mention, we are adventurous travelers in our early 50's. We want to incorporate some physical activity with some beach, water and massage time. We also can't wait to eat great Vietnamese food! Any help on an itineray would be much appreciated! Thanks!
