Vietnam: post one
I have fifteen days in Vietnam coming up and my initial research has given me an impossible schedule I can't realise. I fly into Hanoi and out of Ho Chi Minh. Travel between places will be a mixture of trains, buses and internal flights. On my list at the moment is:
Around the area (eg Perfume Pagoda, Museum of Ethnology, villages?)
Halong Bay and Cat Ba (probably as a trip from Hanoi)
Hue, the DMZ and Vinh Moc
Hoi An and My Son
Ho Chi Minh
Around the area (eg Cu Chi Tunnels, Can Gio Mangrove Park, Can Gio market)
Mekong and Mytho (maybe with a homestay in Mekong)
Question: to make this doable, without killing myself, what would you scrap. It could be years, if ever before I have a second trip to Vietnam. Then again, I might like it so much I'll move there and teach, after Tokyo.
I do have a lot more research to do. But please let me know what you think. Cheers.
