    You will be on the Central Coast of Vietnam in late November - this is flood season! I was going to suggest more time in Hanoi anyway. Sapa could also be a tad chilly then. Best to check weather averages in Vietnam generally.

    Yeah I had read that but I had read that it was july-nov so I was hoping it wouldn't be as bad come the end of November....just adds to the experience!

    Looks good.

    My only suggestion would be to perhaps shave a day of Kratie and spend it in Pakse -- there's lots to do around there.
