We are a 60 year old couple going to Vietnam for 3 weeks in November 2013. We are not back-packers but do not expect luxury either. Flying to HCMC. Intending to stay in the southern half of the country; Mekong Delta, Hoi An, Central Highlands etc.

We prefer comfortable small guest houses/hotels in countryside locations. Wildlife, national parks, interesting village and rural life. So far my research into accommodation has tended to come up with quite large hotels in urban locations. Any suggestions most appreciated.

Having visited Sri Lanka 3 times and got used to tuktuks is the motorbike the only simple and cheap form of transport other than public transport.

Thanks in anticipation.

I can offer similar help to anyone considering Sri Lanka in particular.
