Do not go and don't use the local ferry!
We are a family of four traveling for a year. We decided that we would take the local ferry ( slow) not tourist speed boat to the island. We had organized a homestay for two nights as well with a local non-for-profit.

When we showed up at the dock at 6:30 am the ferry driver told us it would be 150,000 per person to take the ferry one way. We had done our research and we were told the ferry was 10,000. We told the driver we would not pay that since it is…

We need some help with planning our trip in Hanoi. We haven't booked hotels or tours yet and wonder what would be best.

Has anyone tried the cruises in Halong? Is it worth the trip to get there? I wasn't sure if the one night or two nights (or maybe more?) would be good.

Has anyone tried Sinh Torust travel agency? They have some really affordable tours and cruises.

I'm interested in going to the rice paddy fields and bike around and would love it if we could avoid crowds.

Is it best to book…

Hello,

Hi all-
We're heading to Vietnam on the 8th of September and would love some itinerary help. As I'm planning stuff out it seems as though I either need to speed things up or cut out a destination. We only have roughly 10 days in country and we are flying into Hanoi.

The three places we really want to go:
Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park - to visit the caves
Cat Ba - to kayak, boat, and deep water solo
Sa Pa - hiking

But I think it will be very rushed with travel time.

Any suggestions on what to…
