advice needed

Posted by lauramcauley on 22/11/2009 at 02:37

hi all

taking a trip for my honeymoon, we start off in japan for 4 days then fly down to bangkok, after this we have a trip through cambodia for 10 days, we end up in HCMC, we have 5 days here before we go to phu quoc for a week.

We are torn between trips to dalat and the highlands, or maybe doing the beach thing in nha trang, mui ne etc in the five days after HCMC,

Any ideas would be welcome.

Posted from within Vietnam.

Since it's a honeymoon, chose Dalat as it's cooler and 'tidier' on a whole as compared to your named destinations.

Instead of Saigon, I think your time would be much better spent in Hanoi before Phu Quoc. Hanoi is a much more tourist-pleasing destination than Saigon, and now it's possible to fly direct to the Delta (Hanoi-Can Tho) for travel to Phu Quoc via Rach Gia.

Dalat is nice and cool in Dec and a real change from the hustle of HCMC.
