Do you want to make a trip to other places in vietnam such as Mekong delta?

Sure. I'm open to any suggestions. We were thinking to stay south and not travel too far north since we only have 2 weeks.

I think you can make a trip like this to explore the mekong delta. It just takes one week or less. There are several destinations you can aim for (in order): tien giang, can tho, phu quoc island --- cambodia.

Hi Palenvillegirl,
You are looking for travel in Vietnam. I would suggest to go Ha Long Bay. It's a lovely place. Here, you see natural beauty, type of islands. It has around 120 Km long coast line. This is the best place to making fun with couple.;)

Hoping it's helpful.
