Posted by seahmj on 18/5/2008 at 00:37


I would like to have some informations on how do i go about travelling in a proper and safer way as i am planning to travel in this journey:

Hanoi (visit to Halong Bay) - Hue - Hoi An - Nha Trang / Da Lat (either 1 or both) - Mekong Delta - Saigon

Someone please advice me. I am doing a backpack visit to vietnam. This is my very first time doing so and i know nuts about vietnam transport and how it goes. I am on a budget tour. Hopefully someone will give me an idea of how can i do all this travelling within 10 days. 10th July will be arriving in Hanoi in the evening around 2035hrs. Probably be staying in Central Stars Hotel or Hanoi Guest House Hotel. Will be leaving from Saigon to Singapore at 1420hrs on the 19th July.
