Stay in/around hanoi 5th-10th februar

Hey,

I'm headed to Hanoi for about 4-5 days and will leave on the 10th of february. I understand that the tet holiday is going to start during my stay so I reckon booking hotels in the old quarter isn't going to be a problem. However, i need some advice on whether or not I should book before I arrive or after if I want to go on a tour to ha long bay for 2days and 1 night. Any suggestions?

Also if there are any other suggestions on what I can do while I'm there would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Simen

If you know what junk you want to cruise with you should book ahead of time. As its Tet many expats take the opportunity to travel at this time since there is no school or work, so the popular junk companies can get booked. Also ask your hotel to arrange your transportation to the airport on the 10th ahead of time.

In the days before Tet I enjoy walking around the bustling flower markets and watching the frenzy of activities as people prepare for the holiday.

You should book everything in advance to assure things go as your expectation.

In Hanoi this time, you could visit Tet market, go shopping and visit beauty spots as normal.

You should book ahead to secure a place to stay, otherwise you will probably end up spending more than an hour wandering around the town. Apart from that, be advised that some cruisers take surcharges for New Year Eve and Gala Dinner. You might pay higher than normal price so go as soon as you arrive.
