    That is a big open question. It might be helpful to know how much time you have, what your interests are and that sort of thing. We have just been there but as part of a tour so I don't know about public transportation but there is much to see and enjoy. The people are warm and friendly. Hanoi and Saigon are big cities and busy is an understatement but worth seeing. Ha Long Bay is outstanding and I loved Hoi An and Cat Ba. It's a place to start. over 6 years ago

    My vote is to fly into Hanoi, overnight train to sapa in the north, back to Hanoi, over to halong bay, that's about a week or even less. For the other week you could head south on long bus or domestic flight. Get tailor made clothes in hoi an, an cool river town with great great clothes. All that's left is to find a beach and relax, favorite is Mui Ne but far south. There is lots of adventure or relaxation or shopping or whatever you want to be had on this trip. Beauty and culture in sapa, craze and cobra (to eat) in Hanoi, sweetness in halong bay, luxury in da lat, sand dunes and beaches in Mui ne...enjoy! over 6 years ago

    I'd recommend you go to Luang Prabang, Laos instead, maybe with some time in Cambodia or Thailand too. The food is better, sites are more interesting and in better shape, and, I regret to say, other countries are friendlier to visitors. over 6 years ago

    Hey I've just been to Vietnam in January and I've travelled from north to south. We flew into Hanoi, where I don't think you'll need more than a day then Halong Bay cruise, over night train to Hue which is really pretty, overnight train again to Mui ne and to finish Saigon. I think it's fair to say that transportation it's very, very basic so bear this in mind any time you plan your movements. Mui ne it's lovely although you won't be able to enjoy the beach because it's mainly a kite surfing spot meaning that the sea is very wavy and there's a lot of wind. You might want to go to Nha Trang instead.
    I found Saigon beautiful and people warmer than up North.
    I strongly recommend to check the weather as it is a big country it varies a lot from region to region.
    Vietnam is definitely a place to see but In my opinion only after you have seen the rest of South East Asia.... over 6 years ago
