When you come to Vietnam and find yourself in Hanoi or Hoi An we would love to recommend 2 places to stay. When you are in Hanoi the Golden Lotus is lovely with a warm and friendly staff. It is right in the heart of the Old Quarter and close to everything.
When you are in Hoi An we loved the Ving Hung Riverside Resort. It is a tropical paradise with a sweet and charming staff. The view of the river, and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. It has a spa and very close to the heart of Hoi An. There are some lovely hotels at the beach as well. A perfect visit would be 2 nights on the river and 2 at the beach.
If you want any other thoughts from us about your journey, please just ask. We would be happy to share! 🙂
