Halong bay and Sapa

At the beginning of July we (girlfriend and I) will start our journey through Vietnam. We got 7 weeks to see the country, hope it'll be enough!
till hanoi we will travelling with a tourbus and train. From hanoi we would like to see halong bay and sapa. This is where my question is about. Because of the 7 weeks travelling and my internship at hcm I have to take a little more stuff with me than usual. What do you do with your luggage when you went to Sapa and halongbay for a copple of days. Is it possible to take it with you, or do you have to leave it somewhere?
Because I read about crowdy minivans who take you there, I assume there is not much space for luggage?

Hi sailor,

Most guesthouses in Hanoi will offer storage facilities where you can leave your stuff while out of town -- they're normally fine, though I wouldn't recommend leaving anything too valuable in your luggage.

Thanks for your answer, but it is not possible to take your luggage with you? I it really to crowdy.
If there is no other way I will leave my stuff in a guesthouse..
