We are travelling to Vietnam in June & will be staying in HCM for the first 4 nights. We have avoided pre-booking any day tours but we'd like to visit Long Tan, Nui Dat & any National Parks of interest that are reasonably close by. Preferably in the company of an English speaking guide, but not in a big group of people or at a substantial cost. We travel to Hoi An following HCM.
We haven't been to Vietnam before.
Any suggestions we be most appreciated :-)
While there is things to see in HCM, Hanoi had much more happening and found that we didn't get hassled as much as HCM. Sapa is great, train ride is long but worth it. Dalat in the central highlands has plenty to do in the way of activities; mountain bike riding, hiking, canyoning etc as well as a great market. Nha trang has a theme park but not much else. Beautiful country and lovely people. TIP: take toilet paper with you everywhere! over 5 years ago
