Heading to Vietnam for 3 weeks and plan to work my way up the coast

Posted on October 5, 2015 | in Travellers Questions | by

As the title says I'm heading to Vietnam for around 3 weeks, in February next year. There's the obvious stuff that you have to do and see such as: the war museumthe, Chu Chi tunnels and Ha Long Bay. Is there anything that perhaps is not as well known/publicized to is worth the effort to see/do? I'm up for just about anything while I'm over there, so any ideas would be great. Have previously traveled to Bali and Singapore, and am originally from Australia. I don't have a lot of money to play around with, this is more of a backpacking trip. If any more detail is needed let me know 🙂
