Loved the entire journey but highlights included:
-boat trip on Halong Bay
- free day in Hoi An
-visit to local market in Dalat
-visit to local family in Mekong Delta
- lived Hanoi -particularly lake area and Old Town
Didn't enjoy long road trip to Halong Bay. Would have like option to transfer via sea plane - would have been happy to pay the extra cost

Having dinner with a local family in rural setting. Halon Bay.
Having to get up in the early hours of the morning (3 in a row). 3.45a.m. 4a.m. and 3.10a.m.

Wasting a whole day firstly at the Dalat airport for hours and then sitting on a bus for a further 5 hours, arriving late at an alternative destination. No compensation offered. In sufficient time when we finally did get to any site of any interest.

Constant tipping, especially as the trip did not come "cheap" in the first place.

For the 3 early a.m. starts having a breakfast box. Mostly these were all ditched by the group as totally inadequate.

Spending a lot of time sitting in airports.

The hotel (French villa) in Dalat was old and run down, too far out of town. Too far from the front entrance (had to call a service vehicle) and down step steps (two long flights) to the accommodation.
