Itinerary Help!

My husband and I are planning to visit Vietnam from 1st - 9th September. As we have some work in Ho Chi Minh city, we will stay there till the 4th and leave on the 5th morning for either:

1. Hanoi - Halong Bay


2. Da Nang - Hue - Hoi An

Need help in deciding which option will be better. I believe it could be raining in Hanoi but how bad will it be in September? (We have also been to the bays near Phuket in Thailand but Halong looks pretty in the pictures).

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't be overthinking the weather when deciding. Just go with your preference.
