We arrive in Ho Chi Min city on October 28th in the morning.
9/28 Tour through HCMC
9/29 HCMC in the am. Take evening flight to Hanoi
9/30 Hanoi
9/31 Hanoi

10/1 – 10/4 – Possibly get a guide and go to Mai Chau, Pu Luong and Ninh Binh –
We could use help on this part!

10/5 Head to Ha Long Bay and take 2 night cruise – thinking of taking the Dragon Legend – feedback please.

10/7 fly from Hai Phong to Da Nang, then to Hoi An
10/8 Hoi An
10/9 Hoi An
10/10 Hoi An

10/11 Drive to Hue with guide and stops along the way
10/12 Hue
10/13 early flight to HCMC for flight home.

We are uncertain about the Mai Chau/Pu Luong/Ninh Binh part of the trip. We know it will be beautiful but, is that too much time for that area?

Should we use those days to see the Mekong Delta instead? Any other suggestions that we should see instead?
If you are only in HCMC for half a day I would go directly to the War Remnants Museum and go to the top floor first to see the photojournalists picturesfrom both American and Vietnamese during the war- really intestine and moving. The back of the bike tours were great as well.
