1. Is 2 weeks enough time in Vietnam?
Spending 14 days in Vietnam will be enough for you to visit its main attractions and all the best highlights.
It gives you the chance to cover all three major regions, visiting Hanoi and Halong Bay before heading south to stop at Da Nang, Hue, and Hoi An, and then on to Ho Chi Minh City and a tour of the Mekong Delta, with its floating villages and markets.
With a two-week trip, you can get the best of Vietnam’s sights and culture, and not feel that you have rushed around to see more than is feasible.
2. How much does it cost to travel Vietnam for 2 weeks?
The cost of a two-week trip to Vietnam depends on where you go, where you stay, and where and what you decide to eat and spend.
For some, a two-week trip can cost as little as US$ 560 per person to as much as US$ 2,500 per person.
Most people average around US$50 per day, or US$700 for the 14 days, based on staying in average accommodation and using cheaper transfer options such as buses and trains for getting around.
3. What should I pack for a 2-week Vietnam tour?
If you are planning to visit all three regions in the optimum period from January to May, then you will need to have a range of clothes, from lightweight cool clothing to sweaters and warm pants.
The warmer central and southern regions are still hot for western tourists, so bring light clothes, but something that covers shoulders and legs for visiting temples and propriety.
And for northern Vietnam, where it can get chilly in winter and spring, a couple of sweaters to counter the colder weather.
4. Do I need a visa to go to Vietnam?
Unless you are from one of the 25 countries that have visa exemptions, then you will need to apply for a visa before traveling to Vietnam. The visa-free countries includes:
Brunei & Myanmar - 14 days.
Japan & South Korea (ROK) - 15 days.
The Philippines - 21 days.
Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, & Thailand - 30 days.
Belarus, Denmark, Italy, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, & The United Kingdom - 15 days.
You can apply for your Vietnam visa in advance of travel, using either the embassy, the online E-Visa, or the Vietnamese Visa-on-Arrival system, which still requires you to make the application well before you travel.
5. Can I travel to Vietnam right now?
You can travel to Vietnam now, as the COVID restrictions have been suspended indefinitely, allowing travel from any country in the world.
You will be required to download the PC-Covid mobile app, which must be presented at all establishments in Vietnam, and you need to ensure you have medical/travel insurance that covers COVID treatment with a minimum cover of US$10,000.00.
However, the requirements of COVID vaccination or RT-PCR testing prior to travel are no longer applicable.
6. Is it better to visit north or south Vietnam?
Both north and south Vietnam have their good points, and while they may be very different, they are both worth visiting, when you consider the attractions such as Saigon, the Mekong Delta, Hanoi, Halong Bay, and the Sapa Rice Terraces.
So rather than wondering which to visit in your trip, with the 14-day tour, you can actually visit both north and south, and experience the best of both regions in one trip.
7. Is a 2-week Vietnam itinerary suitable for families?
Vietnam is a very popular place for families, and almost all of the country’s tourist facilities cater to families with kids.
Vietnam is more suited to families with kids aged 6-7 and above, as many of the attractions may not be interesting for smaller children, but there are things to do for kids of all ages, especially with the options for beaches, boat trips, island hopping, and adventurous cave tours.
This ancient empire has a wealth of attractions to suit everyone. And our amazing 14-day tour itineraries cater to families as well as groups.
