Wonderful Vietnam holiday that we had

Dear Ngoc,

This is just a follow up email to provide some feedback on our trip.

We’ve been back in Australia for two weeks now and are still talking about the wonderful Vietnam holiday that we had. I wish to thank you for the seamless way that our trip eventuated.

We are thinking of possibly returning next year and visiting those areas that we did not get to this time around.

If we do come back, we would like to visit:

The Mekong Delta

Nha Trang

Hoi An (again)



Halong bay (2 night cruise this time)

Can you please advise what amount of time would be required to enjoy all these places in the one trip, and what would be the best time of year to undertake the next trip. It doesn’t matter whether we started from the north and worked our way down or vice versa.

Thanks once again and regards.
Sam Garrasi
