Vietnam is a narrow country, but long, it is likely you can't travel to see everything in few days. If your time is limited, we suggest you to see the highlights instead of rushing around the countryside. The northern part of Vietnam is worth spending one or two weeks with must - see destinations such as Hanoi, Sapa and Halong bay. The central part with Hue, Da Nang and Hoi An will take a week to cover all. The southern part takes another two weeks. So, our recomendation for your travel length is about 3 weeks or so.
Time to go
Vietnam has a tropical climate but the weather is different from the north to the south. There are four seasons in the North, it could be cold in the winter but it is sunny in the South at the same time. And when it is the rainny season in the South and the North is dry. Our recommedation on your travel time is from August to December or April to August. Those months get the best weather in the whole country.
