Being a true Ozbargainer I couldn't resist when I saw the deals with Jetstar to HCMC Vietnam in June for $460 return with luggage. I have always wanted to go Vietnam and Cambodia but only managed to get 8 days off work. I understand 8 days is merely enough to travel through Vietnam, let alone Cambodia as well. The only thing I'm dying to see in Cambodia is Angor Wat and I was advised that 3 days 2 nights should be enough which leave 5 days in Vietnam. We are planning on flying from HCMC-Siem Reap ( Cambodia) - Hanoi -Na Dang ( Hoi An) - HCMC. However I have a feeling that is way too much travelling in 8 days therefore I need advice on the MUST GO places in Vietnam, I have also heard that June is the start of monsoon season in Vietnam and the North will be much nicer than South. Does is mean that we should spend more time in Hanoi then HCMC? Is Sapa worth visiting?
I am travelling with my partner and we are a couple in our late 20s who are into sightseeing, cultural and adventure.
Thank you all in advance
