Itinerary

Since it was just the two of us, our guide, and driver,  we were able to be rather flexible about our schedule.  We made several changes as we went in order to work around Tet closings,  to avoid lousy weather in the central part of the country, and just to "follow our noses".

Our planned itinerary is here.

The travel agent's detailed in-country itinerary is here.


Here is our actual itinerary.
