    We are two experienced women travelers and will be travelling in Vietnam for three weeks going from South to North and visiting the following places: HCMC, Ben Tre or Can Tho, Hue, Danang (Hoi An, My Son) , Sapa , Cat Ba Island and Hanoi .

    A few questions:
    1. If booking a room on line, I want to make sure I am understanding what a double room is. We need two beds, can be two twins or better. Is that a double room. Or if I specfify double, I get one double bed?

    2. Is there an efficient way to use public transportation to travel from Sapa to Ha Long Bay without going through Hanoi?

    3. Hanoi vs HCMC

    Thank you in advance

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    O.K - the room thing is simple, a double more often than not has two beds, to be on the safe side if booking online then just write a quick note stating the fact that you require 2 beds with your reservation.
    2. I'm sure you could get buses from Sapa to Ha Long bay without going through the city, but I imagine it would be a bit of a challenge and may take a lot longer to get from A to B, but I'm sure the scenery would be very rewarding.
    Ha Noi or HCMC..Three weeks is plenty of time to incorporate a couple of days in both cities if you could fly in to one and out of the other it would be worth doing, both are an easy flight from Da Nang and offer two different city experiences well worth your time.
