Hi All

I am planning a trip to vietnam in June with my partner, we are looking to spend about 2-2.5 weeks in vietnam and have just decided to maybe backpack around instead of just going to Nha Trang. I was just wondering if anyone could give some advice on the best route to take incorporating some places that maybe arent as well known. We are in our early 20s so we are looking for places that can keep us entertained as well as have the beach relaxed atmosphere.

From doing some research i have heard Mui Ne is a decent place to go to so was thinking of spending a couple of days there but another question is how long do we spend in each place when we have a time frame of 2.5 weeks? We will be flying into Ho Chi Minh to begin our holiday

Any input would be great, also on accommodation as well! Reply to this

Do you want to spend all the time outside Ho Chi Minh on the beach, or do you want to explore other places? If you want non-beach places that are less touristy, consider exploring the Mekong Delta. If you do it yourself rather than on a package nyou can get off the beaten track. You could also look at seeing the jungle at Cat Tien national park and perhaps some of the Central highlands around Kon Tum and Buon Ma Thuot. You could arrange a tour to these places in Ho Chi Minh City.

If it's just beach you want, then look up Quy Nhon. It's North of Nha Trang but less large scale touristy. There is also a place called Jungle resort just outside Nha Trang. It's remote and you pay an fee for bed and board and stay in huts on the beach. There's not much in terms of entertainment except drinking and socialising with other guests. You can google it. Paradise resort is similar. It's in the Lonely Planet.

There are also some smaller islands off Nha Trang that you can stay on.

The further you go from 'well known' the less of the type of 'entertainment' that you are looking for will be available. Vietnamese entertainment tends to revolve around coffee shops and kareoke bars, rather than bars and pubs. There are plenty of Vietnamese style resorts all along the coast between Ho Chi Minh and Nha Trang, if this is what you are looking for.

Hope this helps

Hi Jaccy,
My name's Anna Van Nguyen.<snip> I have some advises for you.
- If you like you can in Nha Trang in addition to the resort island you'll find in my site.
- Beside there are 2 places think it's wonderful beach. that are Mui Ne and Phu Quoc
- You can combine sightseeing with the Mekong Delta sleep on the boat watching sunrise and sunset. then you will be a smaller boat to explore the lives of the people of South Vietnam. You will admire the peaceful life of people and witnessed the scene on the river trade cargo domain characteristics of river water (floating market)
more and more ...
if you need any information please contact me. I will provide free information.
Hope you will have nice trip.
