    Default Anyone been to Vietnam?

    I have heard it's beautiful and the shopping is SUPER cheap... I'm hoping to head off (without the kidlets) around July next year.

    Any suggestions on where to visit, what to see, where to stay? How much time should we spend there? What do we avoid!

    Hiya,

    I went there around 10years ago so a lot would have changed but I can't tell you how much I loved it , fantastic people, beautiful country and the food was amazing.

    We did basically north to south, landed in Hanoi and went by road in short hops to Ho Chi Minh City. I never booked accommodation, having said that we backpacked and there was a ton of accommodation available.

    Highlights for me were the water puppet show in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Na Trang and Ho Chi Minh City itself - really busy crazy city, heaps of fun.

    Hopefully someone can give you updated info but I think you'd love it even if some things are different. We went as part of a trip through southeast asia, if you get the time Laos is definately worth a side trip.
