Congrats for your upcoming trip to such a beauriful country!
My last trip there was also 2 weeks. Unforgetable trip! Wish to come back to Vietnam every summer!
I stumbled upon Indochina Pioneer tour company on the internet, and Lam, the Sales Manager tailored a great trip for me and my wife. I suggest you visit their website and send your request to them (remember to ask for Lam). This company will do you well: www.indochinapioneer.com/build-your-own-trip.html
Have a fun trip, like we did!

Welcome to Vietnam, how do you know for vietnamese?we can help you get more it Ha
Long Bay , a bay of wonder, is one of the most impressive landscapes in the
world with thousands of islets and islands scattered throughout an area of 1500
sq km, and located only 170km North East of Hanoi. The local people use their
imagination to flow the spirit into those mindless, timeless limestone and
rocky islands, and make them lovelier, livelier and attractive with names such
as: fighting cock islet, human head islet, golden tortoise and Ha Long itself,
means “descending dragon”. If you want to know infomation, please contract us: www.vietnamfittour.com

Vietnam has still a way to go before being a world-renowned destination.
However, it still has its share of activities. These range from
stunning Ha Long Bay to beautifully quaint Hoi An to Ho Chi Minh’s
mausoleum. The Cu Chi tunnels represent the sheer grit and ‘can-do’ attitude of the
Vietnamese while a visit to the War Remnants Museum brings home the
horrible reality of war. On the more positive side, the marvelous Hue
Monuments, along with the My Son Sanctuary will awaken your spiritual
side. Explore the best of Vietnam.
Motorcycle Trip within Vietnam including - Da Lat, Danang, Haiphong, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Hong Gai, Hue, Long Xuyen, Nam Dinh, Nha Trang. They're very amazing trips
Ha Noi. Ho Chi Minh, Sa Pa, Da Nang.....

Here is my suggest:
Visitors to Ho Chi Minh City can choose from a wide range of boat trips into the Mekong delta, but one of the first to take tourists beyond the towns and well-known Cai Be floating market to smaller farms and settlements is Bassac, run by a French former oil exec and his Vietnamese wife.
The market town of Can Tho was all noise and shouts and busy people, but once the refurbished rice barge with its cosy en suite cabins cast off from a town pier, all was peaceful. My thoughts turned to Willie Wonka's factory as we cruised along a chocolate-coloured channel.
Disembarking on a small, equally Dairy Milk canal in rural Hao Thanh district, we took a short walk with guide Lan along raised paths to the house of a Mrs Cam. Tourists are still rare enough in these parts for our small group to draw excited "hellos" from groups of children even 100m away across the water. One farmer snapped a pic of my weird blonde head with his phone.
Everything growing so abundantly in this fertile land is used for something, Lan told us: leaves for salads and soups, water hyacinth leaves for household goods, banana stems for rope, and fruit, of course. Mrs Cam and family served us pineapples, mangoes and jackfruit, and tiny cups of tea at her waterside house and, with help from Lan, our little group of five Brits chatted and exchanged jokes with our hosts until it grew dark.
The people of the delta are known within Vietnam as happy-go-lucky types who live for the moment. Thanks to all that cocoa-y silt in the river, the land is super-fertile, and life is pretty laid-back. Lanterns and torches lit our way back to the landing stage, where we climbed into the small boat that would deliver us back to the Bassac.
I stared back up the bank to where the family were waving and smiling. Yes, we'd paid for the privilege of dipping into their lives for an hour or two, but I felt very pleased with the bargain, and our hosts gave a good impression of being happy with it, too.
