I haven't been to Phu Quoc but have done the Ha Long Bay cruise and Ninh Binh. They are similar but different. If you are short on time, then Ninh Binh is a day trip. If you have a weekend then do Ha Long Bay. The tour company I used to book was very good and there contact is in this video. It also gives you good tips on booking. https://youtu.be/2UpUsJ6RkRo

If you're going to Hue, then book a scooter and do the Hai Van Pass.

So far all I have confirmed is flying into Hanoi and staying for 2 nights then flying to Ho Chi Minh and staying in there for 3 nights. Then I'll go to Hoian, I am however open to staying longer in Hoi An as the beach sounds lovely and I definitely want some beach time while I am there.
I wanted to visit one other place and fly out of either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh depending which I am closer to. I’ve read mixed reviews about Halong Bay and Phu Quoc which were my original preferences. Would Dalat or Ninh Binh be better options? I am so stuck and would feel guilty not visiting more than 2 places!

I know the original post is old, but if anyone is headed to Vietnam in the near future, I can't say enough positive about canyoning near Da Lat ... And Phat Tire (tour company) takes its safety protocols seriously (or at least they did when we used them). https://www.ptv-vietnam.com/adventur...canyoning.html

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
