I am planning to be in northern Vietnam for about a week in early Jan 2007. I expect cold temperatures in Sapa, but what about Hanoi and Halong Bay? Is it likely to be chilly/rainy/foggy in these areas in January? I found average temps for January but am also wondering if we will likely see the sun!

Hanoi will be cool to cold, but you shouldn't get too much rain -- I'd expect a fair amount of sunshine, but some frosty mornings -- Sapa at night will be COLD!

You can buy cheap (i.e. disposable) clothing at the Russian Market in Ha Noi. Before you leave Sa Pa give it too the locals, they will apreciate it.
