3 weeks Vietnam - Advice for mix of adventure/relaxing?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to spend three weeks in Vietnam this July. He's had a pretty crazy work schedule lately and is really looking forward to (and desperately needing) some relaxation, but at the same time we do want to include some sightseeing and adventure (after all, we're not going to the other side of the world to ONLY laze around!).

We're flying in to Hanoi (after an extended 26-hour layover and fast sightseeing in Tokyo), and would like sightsee around that area and do an overnight in HaLong Bay before heading south.

After that, we're not really sure - a potential itinerary from there includes:
- a domestic flight to Hue, Hoi An, Da Nang area
- another flight to Nah Trang or Mui Ne. I've heard Mui Ne is nicer in terms of seclusion, but we'd really like to do some scuba diving and apparently there aren't facilities for that in Mui Ne. I have my PADI certification, but my husband would be getting his while on this trip so PADI facilities are essential. We'd like to stay at a bit more upscale resort while we do our scuba/beachy/lazy portion. Is there an area you recommend more than Nah Trang?
- Then a third flight down to Ho Chi Minh City to sightsee a bit more (including a day trip to the Mekong Delta) before flying home.

My question is this: which places would you recommend for lingering, and what would you skip, if any? We don't want to be moving around every night and would rather have a few "home bases" from which we could explore the area in a bit more leisurely pace.

Thank you so much in advance for your help!
