I am currently in Hoi An , which I don't mind as I like it here, but not sure where to go from Hoi An. I am not much into big cities, hated Bangkok and Hanoi, and love countryside, mountains, villages, beaches, trekking, walking, etc. Really enjoyed my ride from Hue to Danang and back.
If anyone could suggest itinerary from Hoi An to Southern Vietnam (and then to Cambodia). I know I will be going to Mecong Delta at some point, but before that I should decide on one-two spots on my way from Hoi An. I am not limited in time and don't mind spending one- two extra days on exploring interesting places.
Thanks a lot!

I'd suggest heading into the Central Highlands then..maybe with Dalat as your starting point. It's a small town, easy to explore and I found people there very friendly compared to other areas of northern Vietnam (less aggressive, etc.) There is some nice countryside to explore by foot or bike. I did a motorbike trip from Dalat down through to Chau Doc and the Highlands generally were the highlight of my whole Vietnam trip.
I also recommend the Central Highlands - Dalat and Buon Ma Thuot are really nice. You can fly down on Vietnam Airlines from Danang to Dalat.
If you want to see more of the coast, here's an interesting place - La Gi. I don't personally recommend Nha Trang - I call it "big city at the beach".
Thank you guys,
I am heading to Nha Trang for one night, with intetion to go to Dalat from there. Air tickets are too expencive and sold out for the day I need. After readig all terrible stories about buses, decided to go by train.
