    Hi there,
    Im planning a trip to Northern Vietnam mid Feb for 5 days.
    Im thinking of going to Hanoi staying over night, then going to ha long bay stay over night. I would also like to go see the Phong Nha caves but it seems really far and Im not sure what is the best way to get there from Ha Long? And is it really worth the travelling to go all the way there?

    Is the best way to join a tour and if so which tour company is the best?

    Any tips and advice would be appreciated!

    I'd save Phong Nha for another trip -- I wouldn't recommend doing Hanoi, Ha Long Bay and Phong Nha in five days unless you wanted to spend the majority of your time travelling.
