VN-itinerary in March w/ tween & teen

Jump to last reply

Itinerary Help
Our family of 4 will be in Vietnam March 17-30. My husband & 13-yr.-old have not been before. We adopted our 11-year old from Vietnam. This will be her 1st trip back. My work used to take me to Vietnam (1995-2002); I am sure it's changed!

We fly into HCMC on 3/17 & out of Hanoi 3/30.
I was thinking a few days in HCMC, followed by either a few days in the Mekong delta or else the beach (Phu Quoc or Phan Thiet??);
Next up to HoiAn (or else beach Whale Island/Nha Trang?);
Next to Hanoi (plus either HaLong or Ky Son/Mai Chau homestay?)

Any advice on HCMC (staying at Sherwood) & Hanoi (not sure where staying) sights with 2 very energetic - non-museum-going kids

Regarding beaches, we'd like to be able to snorkel and swim. Do any of the beaches offer warm water & good visibility in late March?

Mekong Delta: feeling very uncertain. My husband and I have visited various floating markets; not sure how it would go for the kids -- is the Mekong low in March? My 13-yr old DD is a bit finicky these days, very attuned to the toilet situation .. squat toilets on a wharf might drive her (& therefore me) over the edge.

Also any restaurant recommendations most welcome.

Is HaLong as awesome as I hear? Is it overcrowded? I've heard there is another Bay just to the north - any input?

So little time!!
Thanks for any suggestions
