    I was looking at some photos and Halong Bay and Hanoi seems nice. anyway since Azure has some connections it would definitely be easier. I will discuss with him, maybe meeting on Mon or Tue to discuss and come up with something more concrete. .

    If u have only 4 days better just concentrate on Halong bay n Hanoi.

    As for air-tickets, its cheap only if you book early. The longer you wait, the more the price steeps up. The other consideration is dietary - any constraints amongst the group (eg halah, vege, etc).

    PM me, 'kay.

    I have a friend currently in Vietnam. Probably will meet him there.
    Hopefully it will be a low budget 4 days trip.

    Is there anyone interested to go?

    May i know the tentative period of the trip?

    I would say Nov.

    I suspect Dec would be much more expensive and crowded. .

    Due to $$ and time constraints, and the fact that this is my first trip to Vietnam, I would be choosing the south side. Going to the north would require many more days.

    Please view pic attached
    also to be included in the costs are the driver and guide costs. Which would be about 100-150 per person for the whole trip.

    Rheo - prices for airtickets have upped. Check your MSN email also, as I've sent a couple of itinerary plans for your use.

    Hi What is the tentative date then can confirm.

    I am on if i can take leave, which is the last two weeks of the Nov and 1st week of dec.

    BTW the northern part of vietnam-saigon- would be the first part of vietneam to visit according to another of my friend who visited vietnam solo a couple of years ago. sure can get some travel tips from him.

    If you don't have time, just visit Ha Noi and the surroundings. The weather there will be nice around Nov and Dec.

    But I'm very pleased to join you if you choose HCMC!
