Hi,

With 2 weeks you have several choices to plan your trip. i will give you 2 advices:

1. You can travel from the north to the south: flight to hanoi, 1,2 days to explore the ancient beauty of hanoi. the next route should be halong bay, mai chau, sapa. After that you can flight to the middle of vietnam to visit hue, danang, hoian, nhatrang. the last destinations route should be hochiminh city.

2. you can plan your trip from the south to the north with the reverse route which i mentioned abow.

hope this will helpful to you.

North (Hanoi, Halong Bay and Ninh Binh) - Lan Ha Bay is less touristy than Halong Bay.
Central VN (Hue and Danang (Hoian)) - An Bang beach in Hoian but what time of the year?
South (HCMC and Mekong Delta) - A day trip or an overnight trip to Mekong Delta.
