Hi everyone! My husband and I are spending two weeks in Vietnam (28th Oct - 11th Nov). The first week we will stay in Ho Chi Minh with family and we’ll be doing a bit of ‘work from home’. The second week we are open for some exploring.
I’d love to hear your recommendations for Ho Chi Minh evenings and where else you’d recommend visiting in Vietnam at that time of year (the weather seems to be different in each the south, center and north).
We’re considering a weekend in Phu Quoc, then on to Hanoi and Sapa. Is Phu Quoc worth going to? If it’s just lots of resorts/bar culture we aren’t too interested vs. if it’s a bit more low key and rugged.
Vietnam is such a fun country, you’ll have an amazing time!
Hanoi is a great city and definitely worth seeing. Also as you haven’t mentioned it above I have to say Ha Long Bay is beautiful – if you have time I would highly recommend visiting and doing a boat trip one day.
Hoi An is really lovely, one of my favourites. When in Hanoi, it’s worth doing Halong bay. We did an organised overnight boat and met really lovely people. We opted for a more expensive boat option, I think some can be ‘booze cruise’ vibes.
