Vietnam suggestions for November

Jump to last reply

In years past, we've spent a few days each in Hanoi & Saigon and liked them both. After a week in Bangkok, we will arrive in Saigon Nov.13th. We fly home from Hanoi on Nov. 23rd. I was thinking of spending a couple days in Saigon then fly to Danang and spend a few nights in Hoi An. Maybe then spend a couple nights in Hue or Danang before heading back to Hanoi for the final couple nights.

We typically don't do tours although we did a 2-night Halong Bay tour and the Cu Chi tunnel tour and loved them both. We really enjoy renting a motorbike and getting away from the masses and relying on our phone's GPS to guide us back to our hotel at the end of the day.

Saigon & Hanoi hotels will be at Marriott because we're using points and I'm a Platinum Elite. I do realize the new JW Hanoi is far out from where one would like to stay.

Nov. 6-13 Bangkok (booked)
Nov. 13 Fly BKK-SGN (booked)
Nov. 13-15 Saigon?
Nov. 15 Fly SGN-DAD?
Nov. 15-19 Hoi An?
Nov. 19 taxi to Hue or Da Nang
Nov. 19-21 Hue or Da Nang
Nov. 21 Fly to DAD-HAN
Nov. 21 - 23 Hanoi?
Nov. 23 Fly home from Hanoi (booked)

Just the 2 of us. Couple in early 40's. I can speak a bit of Vietnamese.
Appreciate feedback & suggestions
