Hi - early planning stage - I have 10 nights:
Two ideas below:
Night 1 & 2: Hanoi
Night 3: Halong Bay (would like a 2 night cruise if time permits)
Night 4: o/n train to Sapa
Night 5: Sapa - would also consider an extra night here as well
Night 6: o/n train from Sapa
Night 7: Hanoi or out to Phong Nga homestay
Night 8: Hanoi
Extra night in each Sapa & Halong Bay would make up the 10 nights
Or do I keep the same until night 7 and fly to Da Nang & spend 2 or 3 nights in Hoi An fly back to Hanoi for 1 night and then out?
The other question is I am looking at travelling around the 10th of June or do I hold off until Sept - weather wise I don't want to travel to Sapa or Halong Bay and not see a thing!!
Plus we do want to spend some time shopping is Hanoi as good as Hoi An or vice a versa?
Thanks for any help you can give...
