Huong Giang Staff asked 5 years ago

My husband and I have 12 days to spare ị January for our trip. We plan to do Northern Vietnam & Laos. Ideally we would like to spend 7 days in Northern Vietnam (incl. Halong Bay and Sa pa/Mai Chau – which to do?) and then take a flight to Laos to explore the last 5 days around Luang Prabang & Vang Vieng.

My husband  is interested in learning about the war memorials ,jungle and beach, whereas I am more interested in the cultural and culinary experience.

Does anyone have any ideas for an itinerary?

Thanks in advance & happy traveling!

Hello there, 
If you have 12 days in your hand and want to learn about the war memorials, jungle and beach, I suggest you should spend it for travelling to museums in Hanoi and the suburbs. You can consider the itinerary as below:
Day1: Hanoi arrival – Half day city tour 
Day2: Visiting Hanoi museums: Ho Chi Minh Complex, Vietnam military history museum, Hoa Lo Prison, B52 Victory museum
Day3: Sapa – Ham Rong Mountain – Cat Cat village
Day4: Sapa hill tribe village – Night train to Hanoi
Day5: Hanoi-Halong cruise boat
Day6: Halong cruise boat
Day7: Halong-Hanoi
Day8: Hanoi – Vientiane
Day9: Vientiane- Vang Vieng
Day10: Vang Vieng- Luang Phrabang
Day11: Luang Phrabang- Pak Ou Cave – Khouangsi Waterfall – Luang Prabang
Day12: Luang Phrabang departure

The beauty of Sapa

Hope the information is helpful for you. 
Have a good trip!
