Traveling To Vietnam
I will admit, my most recent trip to Vietnam in January was a bit of an impulsive buy. I snagged the tickets during Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend for a jaw-dropping $429 roundtrip without thinking twice. I knew it would be a safe country to visit as it was rated in the Top 5 Safest Southeast Asia destinations for solo-female travelers. What I didn’t know what how incredibly beautiful the country and people there are. With a recent rocky history, Vietnam is a living history book with the kindest people around!
I was in Vietnam for a total of 9 full days, excluding travel. While others were busy gawking at the fact I would travel so far with so little time in the actual destination, I was busy planning every second of my time there to ensure I was getting the most out of my trip.
With such a short amount of time, I focused my travels on the North and Central parts of Vietnam after failing to realize how long the country is. Living in Texas puts the rest of the world in perspective when you have to travel 9+ hours to get from the top to the bottom of the state! So after booking, I naively thought I would be able to hit the North, Central, and South cities in Vietnam.
Jokes on me! I ended up narrowing down my itinerary even further to Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, and Hoi An. I was told over and over again that Hoi An was an absolute must-see! I took their advice and the little city stole my heart. From tailor made clothes to the romantic, lantern-lined streets, Hoi An was something our of a dream.
Before taking a deep dive into the details of each stop along my DIY Vietnam itinerary, I’m going to share a few pictures of the highlights of my trip before elaborating on each segment of the trip.
