Thats roughly what we got so far.Having been to vietnam a few times, we are returning for big birthday/anniversary celebrations and want to live it up in some Boutique Hotels as much as possible, as its only place in world we can afford them. And spend our days exploring areas looking for great little street side bites along the way...and hit some new spots we havent been to yet.
I realise we still have some time left over and cant decide where to go with it, Ha Giang would be a good choice but dont know if we up for the long drive to and from there, plus it may be similar in a way to Ninh Binh/Mai Chau or would you suggest we go there instead?
Pu Luong area looks lovley tho.
Knowing that, where you you send 2 foodies/photographers that love cute Boutique Hotels with colonial charm ? Chiang Mai,Luang Prabang.etc
