    What is the best route to travel from Hanoi to Bangkok in 5 weeks?

    My suggested itinerary. Add and trim as needed for time and budget. Hanoi, Sapa, Halong Bay, Hue. Consider the Caves of Son Doong ( http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/01/largest-cave/peter-photography ), in Quang Binh Province northwest of Hue. DaNang / HoiAn/China Beach. (Regarding southern Vietnam beaches - China Beach, Nha Trang, Mui Ne, Vung Tau and Phu Quoc are available, take your pick(s)) If you're not a hard-core beach person consider bypassing Nha Trang, and go west from HoiAn to close to the Lao border, take the Ho Chi Minh Trail (Highway 14) south thru the Central Highlands to Dalat. Then Saigon. (Side trips to Mui Ne beach or Vung Tau beach) Then Mekong Delta and Phu Quoc on your way to Cambodia - Phnom Penh and Angkor Wat. Bangkok. 1) Consider heading north to Vientiane, Lao (maybe the Plain of Jars) and then Luang Prabang. Back track to Bangkok by land or air. OR 2) Head north from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, go to Lao border (Chiang Khoung, Thailand / Houei Sai, Lao) and catch a Mekong River boat downstream to Luang Prabang (2 days). Bangkok by land or air. Explore airfares for some legs to save time. Regional budget airlines are offering promotional fares in SE Asia. (JetStar - US$20 Hanoi to DaNang, Air Asia is good for online booking at last minute) Get a good guide book(s) and check for current info / updates on the internet.

    Riding motorbikes around vietnam for about 2 weeks...how do we solve the luggage issue?

    Take a carry-on bag and a day-pack. You should be able to strap the carry-on to your motorbike. Don't take anything you don't want to loose. Things that disappear in hotels: cameras, smart-phones, computers and CASH. Find your hotel for the night before you go exploring. Don't wait until the last minute to find a hotel. Most hotels of any * rating have a safe for valuables. Good Luck, Your Vietnam Tour Guide P.S. I've never had anything stolen in 10 trips to Vietnam. almost 8 years ago

    Are there relaxation tours in Ha Long Bay?

    I'm not sure what you mean by a "relaxation tour" - Sitting on the deck of a junk style boat with a cool drink is what I call relaxing. You don't have to go cave exploring, kayaking, swimming or any of the other activities the organized tours offer. Just sit back relax, enjoy the food and watch some great scenery.
