Amazing! I am from Vietnam but I still haven’t had many chances for visit all of destinations that you ever. However I can suggest a beautiful destination that you should not miss when coming back to VietNam, which is Moc Chau Plateau.

What an incredible blog, outstanding detail and a high level of practical advice! Really has helped shaped my impending trip, I am thinking of doing north to south like you, just trying to work out how many days to apportion.
It must have taken a lot of time and I am grateful for your efforts.
Any help you can assist with planning my 14 day trip would be helpful.
Stupendously informative blog and thanks again 🙂
Have you ever heard of the Top Gear Experience? One of my favorite things I did while in Vietnam… you can check out the post here jetlaggedinparadise.com/the-blog/top-gear-experience
Hi Carmen, I’m planning 10 days in Vietnam. Around how much you spent in your 2 weeks in Vietnam?
I think it was something around $600… hotels and food were quite cheap, and we moved around by train and local buses… the one thing that raised the cost was the cruise in Halong Bay.
Wow! That’s awesome deal! Thanks 😊
