If you don't mind spending time on a bus, i can highly recommend the hop on hop off busses that stop in most bigger cities in vietnam. All tourist agencies in vietnam sell tickets at a reasonable price. Spend as many days in a city as you wish and get to discover man sites. Alternatively get a private tour guide, eg as a moped tour. Friends of mine had a tour like that and said it was great. almost 8 years ago
Wow, 10 days is enough for you to visit more places. You should ask a tour Ho Chi Minh City, Da Lat, Nha Trang. There are a lot of things you can explore in Vietnam.
Have a nice trip. :) almost 8 years agoAnswered by Hotel Nikko Saigon via WorldNomads.com
