Arriving next April 2019 (school holidays) and children are aged 13 and 15. Have been reading through lots of suggestions from the ever helpful forum but now thinking of adding Ninh Ba to our trip.
Is this too busy?
Hanoi 3 nights
Halong Bay 2 nights
Ninh Ba 2 nights (not sure if should go to Ninh Ba then Halong Bay or the other way around - we are looking to take a cruise from Hai Phong port as closer. Another option would be to loose the cruise as Ninh Ba is meant to be HB on land??)
Hoi An 5 nights
Ho Chi Min 3 nights (day trip to the tunnels)
Suggestions welcome ...
