Hello I am planning on being in Vietnam for 3 weeks arriving on feb 6th 2013
But now hearing about the holiday tet I'm thinking I should recwork my whole plan.
I'm landing in Hanoi and was planning on doing sapa and then heading south to hcmc taking a total of 3 weeks
Then Cambodia 10 days
Laos 10 days
And Thailand 4 weeks
Any input!!?????
Should I jump over to Laos first then down to Cambodia then south -north Vietnam!????
Then fly from Hanoi to thai land????? ( north Thailand)
Hmmmmmmm

I think that's a better idea, but that flight out of Hanoi would have to be to Bangkok (Air Asia flies quite cheaply). You will also need a regular visa in your passport for Vietnam (no VOA for land borders).

If you had gone to Hanoi first, chances are very good you'd be stuck in Hanoi for a while since all means of transport would be tied up and unavailable for quite some time.

U mean if we stayed in Hanoi ??
Or if we land in Hanoi and want to leave right away? I hope we won't get stuck if we leave right away .
Also I found flights into loas.... Is that weird/not right?
