Despite never being on our “we have to go there” list, Vietnam quickly became one of our favourite countries to date. Our trip started in Hanoi where we took an overnight boat trip to Halong Bay.  After stopping off at the old capital of Hue, we continued onto Danang and yet another UNESCO World Heritage City Hoi An. The sun set as we scaled the white and yellow sand dunes of Mui Ne and we also found time to relax and celebrate our first Christmas on the road in Dalat. Finally we visited the Cu Chi Tunnels of the Mekong Delta and experienced New Year’s Eve in Saigon. Even though we spent just one month in Vietnam it is one of the places we would love to return to one day. Here are our Vietnam tips and stories:
